    If I love my old Marshall and my Club 40 will I love an Ecstasy Classic too?

    Hey Bo, I giged with a 101b /OS 2-12 Bogner cab for a couple of years and loved it... We were gigging alot when I had mine and it still took me quiet a while to figure out all the knobs & switches :facepalm !!! In the end, I spent most of my time in the Blue channel and just rode the guitar...

    Traynor YBA-2 project?

    Hi everyone, I scored a vintage Traynor YBA-2B (6V6 version) a while back and I like it a lot!:aok The amp itself was in great shape for it's age but the cab was in poor condition so I decided to build this little Tone monster a new home...

    Whats the most important thing you know or have learned about playing in a band?

    :agree Use "DYNAMICS" correctly and it will set your Band apart from most!!! In most projects, I usually end doing quiet a bit of the lead vocal work and often times I gravitate to-wards songs that will showcase the bands ability to use dynamics effectively... It takes a conscious effort from...

    Germino Classic 45

    As far as pups go; I can vouch for the Wolftone Marshall head in the bridge position of a LP type guitar with Greg's amps...:aok Dewman (TGP member) has one in his R7 that sounds righteous through his many Germino's for that type of TONE.... I have the Wolftone DR'Vs in my R7 and IMO; they are...

    XTC you find yours to be somewhat muddy?

    I owned and gigged a Classic for about 2 years in a 2 guitar band and it didn't disappoint! Despite the abundance of tonal options (knobs a plenty) I found it quiet easy to dial in and didn't find it to be muddy... Sold it for financial reasons but I would love to own another some day! The...
