    Eminence GA-SC64 12 - comparisons and thoughts

    The allesandro 12, after break in, sounds absolutely superb in my 67 Reverberocket2. A big part of its appeal for me is its paper former. Paper is more tactile and adds too that really sweet top end. Love that speaker

    How to make a Twin or other loud amp work for quiet stage volume?

    well, as a veteran of nine japanese tours i can help, as i Surely know the pain you're experiencing.... every tour was a Roland Jazz Chorus on almost every gig. JC's are the silver twin of japan, they are on every stage. no way you can dial one in like you do a fender, no way jose. what worked...

    I had the switch installed in the #2 input of channel 2. most of the black/silver faces had the same value bright cap but one (super or twin, I forget) had a larger value. It'a useful for certain things but it rarely gets used. Position 2 is stock deluxe and stays there most of the time, and off...

    Yeah that C12K is wonderful but boy it needs a Long time to break in. you just need a lot of patience with it, around 80-100 hours i'd say. Think of it as a slightly darker real C12N that refuses to cave in on you when you turn the wick up. I have a 3 position bright switch (off/dr value/twin...

    Reverb pans are some of the most inconsistent bits of all. A very complex subject! George, one time our mutual tech gave me a box of 12 identical fender tanks to critique, as he was too busy. This was back in the "glory days" when Accutronics was still American, well over twenty years ago. All...

    I can dig it! For me it's "live in japan", wise fools and the cobra strat stuff. Btw he used an Ampeg amp (not sure what model) for the cobra stuff with Ike Turner

    Regarding Otis' wise fool's tone, that album was recorded in 1976. The Epiphone was basically retired by then and he was playing Gibsons at that point

    Wrong yes. That's Johnny Ace (Acerno) on Bass, Jerome "Big Foot" Green on drums (longtime drummer for Wilson Pickett), and Danny Draher on 2nd guitar. I played with all those guys and what you're seeing is basically Danny's band backing Otis. All killer, no filler, grown men playing the blues!

    That sounds like the 355 to me, the Riviera is much more hollow sounding and "bouncier", for lack of a better word. the Riv is brighter but less direct sounding. my alltime favorite Otis tone by far is on the live "So Many Roads, Live in Japan" album on Delmark. Definitely the Riviera there and...

    yeah on the Pod V2. you need to load the program into your computer for fine tweaking, simultaneously through a regular amp, and they can be a real ass saver on the road in "no onstage amps" situations. sound surprisingly good too in backline situations if the amp has an effects loop. plug the...

    that catlinbread, in demo vids, sounds So damn good. but it seems, just like electroharmonix, they can't resist throwing in an off the wall feature that 99% of users would never ever use. oy, "Flurb" anyone?!? but on the ither hand i owned a real '63 and never came close to opening up the dwell...

    Holy Grail Reverb Neo vs Topanga

    the holy grail's single knob is it's biggest downfall. zero tweakability. i have an original and the smaller one (both with the idiotic "flurb " setting) and while they sound good are both frustrating as hell. both are to be sold soon

    Is the 59 Bassman LTD Reissue much/any better than the original 59 Bassman Reissue?

    i had one of the original reissue run and Really dug it, sold it long ago. but i want that tone again, and for my needs the LTD is a better fit; not as tight/loud/stiff sounding. i want that spongier looser feel but with a lot of clean headroom and the LTD has that. i'll probably turn the ground...
