Picked up a Victoria Golden Melody about a month ago, a really incredible amp btw..
It came loaded with Eminence speakers, but I've been using ASW's in all my amps for years now, (KTS60, Kts70, Peacemaker, Elegantes)
How do you think a pair of Alnico Elegantes would sound in the Golden Melody...
I picked a Carr Bloke recently (my first Carr) just to change things up.
It is by every possible measure, a Steve Carr a stack in a box, the feel, tone, breakup.
It's what He calls his first dedicated overdrive amp; and has a lot of gain on tap "if" that's your thing.
But I was hoping to...
I recently picked up a Carr Bloke to have a little fun with on stage, you know to change things up a little.
Being a Marshall inspired, or as Steve describes it, "a dedicated overdrive amp" there's no reverb.
I'm not ashamed to admit it, I love reverb. All my regular gigging amps have it. I...
I noticed my Carr Bloke sounding a little fizzle and harsh in the highs.
I thought to myself, probable time to replace the power tubes. The amp's preowned and God only knows how much playing time was logged on these things.
I thought I'd check the bias which was reading about 1.18 (and...
I hope to speak with Mark today, but I turned on my Regal, everything
Lights up, fuse good, jewel indicator, all filaments in every tube, but no sound.
I tried Replacing every tube from the rectifier, all preamp and power tubes,
But still no sound.
The speaker is functioning when connected it...
My first Carr amp boys.
I'm not a high player, but my insticts tell me there's magic to be found in this amp, especially in the more plexi Classic end of the spectrum.
Loved the Stones demo on Youtube with the Tele, really, really cool sounding, perfect breakup.
The thought a killer "little"...
After all these many years there's no
reason I shouldn't be doing this myself.
Can you guys recommend a bias prob.
6L6's are the priority right now,
But I have amps running 5881's and
34's as well.
For decades a lot of us would simply replace powers tubes in our Marshalls and Fenders without re biasing.
Then we found religion, a tech and that mindset changed.
Fast forward, this weekend I realized it was definitely time to replace the stock Russian 6L6's in my Louis Tremoverb. After years...
The Zevon thread got me thinking about Waddy's Les Paul
which made me realize I've never gotten my hands on a Bigsby equipped Lester.
And that's after decades of playing and owning so many Les Pauls :hide2
I know they're probably a pound and a half heavier, and not dive bombing weapons.
It doesn't get much better than this.
Sitting here with a killer bottle of wine and listening to Warren's body of work.
From Lawyers, Guns and Money, Werewolves, Excitable Boy, Roland,
Poor Poor Pitiful Me, to Carmelita.
I'm just so blown away at this level genius story telling.
I own a bunch of great amps, but never owned one of Steve's amps.
Feel like I want to give this one a try.
The Bloke sounds like one fun, explosive little combo. :dude
I'm not looking for Twin Fendery cleans;
I already have amps that do that.
But the Blokes edge of breakup Marshall
I've never owned a Carr, but know the build quality and tone to be superb.
I was intrigued by the bloke. I own a an 18 watt 2-12 RetroKing which
Is absolutely phenomenal, and an old Marshall which cover me pretty
well in that territory.
I thought a single 12 marshall type combo might be...
What can I expect to get out of this baby??
I already use a KTS70 which I absolutely love!
And an Elegante, wonderful speaker, insanely warm and sweet.
The kts60 is going into a single 12 open back Kendrick Kspot.
Im using Les Pauls, Esquires, and Strats.
Ron recommended this as being...
I guess point one is I love Austin Speaker Works.
I've running a KTS 70 in my Louis Electric since day one and it is incredible.
So when I picked up a Kendrick K-spot recently (wonderful amp btw)
I had to hear it with the ASW Elegante.
The Elegante has the warmest sweetest highs I've heard...
Just got it, worked great for a couple of days, playing tonight through a 35 watt
about halfway up, all of a sudden,,,nothing, no sound?
Tried the amp through another cab with a kts70, worked great.
Did this thing blow? I wasn't even playing that loud??
Hi guys and gals
I love this Regal to death (another thread)
But in the meantime I have no reverb and no trem.
Im not much of a trouble shooter.
I tried swapping the foot switch from one of my Fenders-no luck
I replaced the reverb drive and trem tubes which immediately fixed the problem but...
How does he do it?
The live footage of Jimmy winging his ass off in The Song Remains the Same" is easily one of the the most intense, dazzling displays of guitar wizardry ever
And somehow, he pulls the whole thing off with his Les Paul slung down
around he knees.
I tried, who...
Wasn't it only a couple of years before
Fender pulled them from the line up.
I wasn't big TM fan, but I can see where
a lot of players dug them.
I still love my Dual Prodessional.
They just never caught on.
I've listen to every clip I could find, Alex Garcia's being my favorite.
loved the Hendrix cleans and Billy Gibbons screaming harmonics he pulled from that 19, great player, great job on the clips!
I've read everything I could find, spoken to Hogy and everyone associated.
My first choice...
On occation I swear I can hear changes in my amps tones/output while I'm playing.
This is through a variety of different amps which have had no issues.
I usually right it off as, "O.K., this is a bad guitar cord?"
Now I'm asking myself a completely different set of questions:
1st- Is the...
Finally! Unequivically my new favorite guitarist. Damn!
He was playing in a beautiful small theatre in Pittsfield, Ma., a triple bill with Ruth Foster and Jorma K, DEFINITELY worth the hour drive through the Berskshire mountains in **** weather.
Robben's playing is so amazing! He was running...
