    Doesn't look like people are blowing their Celestion G12-EVH. What am i missing

    As far as i'm concenred the awsome sounding G12-EVH speakers are nothing but rebrandaded 20w greenbacks. I love the sound but i'm affraid to blow up my 212 cab loaded with them. Still, when i look at the specs of the official EVH 100W set up, the amp is able to put out at least 100w (probably...

    Friedman BE-100 no sound after rebias. Any clue?

    It happened after regular maintainance i usually do every 6 months on all my amps. I carefully removed the chassis from the cab, cleaned oxidation off the surface of the chassis and transformers (didn’t touch the inside) and reset the bias. I use a bias probe tool i bought on ebay wich conects...

    Celestion Marshall G12 Heritage - Specs and sound?

    I'd like to know what their specs, in wich cab or combo they were fitted and how they compare to a 25w greenback? I could only find 1 demo and thought they lack midrange complexity... but it's always hard to judge from a single youtube demo. Thank you

    Recomend me: Chorus pedal w/ parallel dry out, small footprint

    I need a repleacement for an old noisy but great sounding ibanez chorus. This is going to act as a signal splitter, so i need a parallel (in phase) dry out like the ibanez’. Chorused signal is going to a comp and clean amp, dry signal is goig to a slightly overdrriven second amp. Pedal doesn’t...

    Friedman BE-100: How are you setting levels when using the fx-loop?

    I have an Eventide h9 on my BE-100's fx-loop. Works great with my other Friedman amp (Smallbox 50) but not stellar with the BE. When i engage the effects loop my clean channel sounds boomy, looses a good deal of the harmonics and the clean level never matches the distortion ch's volume. When i...

    RV 500 users: Does it do volume boost per patch?

    Are you using yours for overal volume boost on lead patches? Any tonal change or does it boost low end when boosting volume? Low end boost is something i'm trying to avoid on my lead tone. Thanks!

    Strymon TimeLine - Can it do overall volume boost?

    I need a midi switchable delay that can do volume boost per preset. I know Eventide H9 does that but wonder if the TimeLine does the same thing and if it's programable per preset instead of a master boost..?

    Need help fixing weird Fx-loop phase issue - Eventide H9 content

    My amp have a serial fx-loop and works fine with every other fx unit i ver tryed but is not working with the H9.

    Recomend me a guitar practice tool to learn new songs: Boss JS10, Computer software, etc..?

    What do you guys use and recomend? My main application for such gear is to learn and practice new songs to play with my actual band. I won't play with headphones and i like the idea of a good sounding unit. Also, I always plug into my own amps so i don't need built in effects nor amp simulators.

    Modern amps bias - What am i missing?

    This is how i've been adjusting my amp's bias forever: Tube Power Dissipation : Measured Plate Voltage x 65% = Bias So the usual el34 amp falls in the range of ~36-38mV. In the course of the last 2 years i fell in love with Friedman amps and acquired overtime virtually all their models...

    Are there any ALNICO single coil size 59-style humbucker pickups

    Looking for a real '59/PAF feel in strat size (i know the actual sound will not be there in a narrow field pickup, but the swirling highs and slightly compressed feel of a full size 59 alnico humbucker is probably possible to have)... Seymour Little '59 is almost there but still a little stiff...

    Will insulation tame a 4x12 cabinet harshness ?

    I have a Marshall 1960A and a Bogner 412ST both with the same speakers. The bogner sound so much more defined and refined.. the marshal in comparison sounds raw and a bit harsh. Looking inside the cabs, one difference that jumps to the eye is the bogner cab have insulation material stapled to...

    Pedalboard build (noise-free): Should i "shield" power supplies and power cables?

    I "learned" that pedals on top of a power supply are most likely going to hum. But i'm not sure if that applies to all types of power supplies. I'm building my set on a Pedaltrain PT2 (pic on it's way). I'll have 2 power supplies mounted on the bottom of the Pedaltrain. Pedals are "velcroed"...

    What happens to the tone and specially the response of a cabinet when you add speakers? Exemple: Take a 2061CX-style (big diagonal 2x12 cabinet) then add diagonally mounted 2x10" speakers? Or an oversized 1x12 with added 1x10" speaker.. Will it sound boxy? More pucnh? More or less definition...

    Anyone compared Holy Fire 48v vs Holy Fire 9 head to head?

    Many years ago i bought a standard Holy Fire with the gigantic 48v power supply. I liked the clarity and specially the headroom of that pedal but quickly sold it becouse it was hard to place that laptop-style power supply on my board. I wonder if the 9v version is the same thing.. Anybody?
