This might be old news to most people here, but I've just tried out some tubes in my amp, and of all the permutations the one tube that seems to make the most difference is the first pre-amp tube, the one receiving the signal of the guitar. In my case I tried out a few different tubes, but there...
Once again I'll ask TGP.
A friend just gave me his old Marshall Powerbrake. It's fully functional and it's OK for what I need - to knock out a few db's when I go out to play, and it gives me a passable tone for practice.
Now, the question. It has a 8 - 16 ohms switch. Will it hurt my amp if I...
Judging from the YouTube clips I've seen, 3rd Power's Hybrid Master technology is really impressive.
Does anybody here know what kind of technology he's using? Is it the same as London Power's power scaling?
Can anybody explain to me, in simple layman terms, how can Komet amps operate with multiple power tubes? Special transformers?

I've just closed an insanely good deal on an Orange Cab - the one in the title, with Celestion G12K100 Speakers. I've never owned such speakers. Anybody here with first-hand experience with this cab / speakers?
I like gear demos like anybody else here at TGP, but lately I've been kind of fed up with all the crappy players who inflict us with their less than stellar chops. So, to feel a bit better about my little addiction, I decided to ask TGP to post what you guys think are musical gear demos...
I'm in no way affiliated with Eminence, but I think this might be a very interesting speaker.
From their description:
"Rated at 300 watts, the 8 ohm Double-T 12 features a tight low end, a midrange bite that can cut through a mix, and detailed high end without being too bright. Travis worked...
I know my next cab will be a Hiwatt-style 4x12, and I've narrowed it down to these two companies - HighTone and Reeves.
So, if you have any playing experience with any one of these two fine 4x12 cabs, could you please share it here? I'm well aware that this is very much like asking...
