    Too bad Prince and Vai didn't play together. Imagine the imagery. The world would explode in an eclectic orgasm.

    Like a Rectifier, but...

    I don't care who stole what from who, a slo and a recto are very different beasts.

    Who's playing a Celestion speaker in their Deluxe Reverb?

    Have a vintage 30 in my HR deluxe. With some unique tube selections and the v30 that amp has a very unique character that is sometimes just perfect for a change of pace.

    Fender Hw Dr Vs Vintage. Great Video.

    Ya know, not every old Fender amp was great. This one might just have been a dog, old tubes, crap speaker, old caps.. who knows. I think many of the new Fender amps are just great, but I still haven't found anything that tops a good and carefully maintained blackface.

    Soldano SLO 100 vs Friedman BE 100

    There is a post in this thread with a video comparing the two amps. When I listened to it I was very surprised at the similarity, and I thought no way my SLO sounds similar to a BE. I've played BEs but never owned one. This led me to find a better video of the friedman, so I cranked up the...

    I got to play Mike Soldano's SLO at his shop

    can't read the settings! looks like all between 2 and 5? What speakers was he using?

    Friedman SS-100 or Soldano SLO; That is the Question!

    I would not call the slo bluesy in any sense, nor do I think it responds well with rolled back volume. My SLO is rock solid, always dependable, and gets you that soldano tone every time. I do not find it brings out the nuances of the guitar as much as some other amps, everything that comes out...

    Sorry Guys But I Have The Best Wife.

    This is exactly how me and my wife are. Look, if u need to seek permission, you already know you are creating a financial hardship, which you WILL fight about later. I don't mean to be a dick, but maybe she should have the greatest husband ever and u should pass.

    Which Marshall would you recommend?

    You lost me on this. You said the other guy had a SLO and you had a Mark III combo. Then you said he was bragging about a Marshall, and then somebody ate some breakfast but I have no idea who. But no way a Mark III combo hangs with a SLO or a 70s 100 watt Marshall thru a 4x12 in pure volume...

    Unhappy former blasting rock guitarist facing reality

    Everybody needs to watch this and take some lessons. This is not fun volume for any of the musicians. The poor drummer looks like he is playing on glass. But these guys absolutely nail it for the type of gig they are playing. Let's face it, the cheesy gigs aren't for the panty droppers, and...

    New amp day! Vox AC30hw

    When I use the bb with mine it is so similar to 70s Marshall tone. I found a mix of EH and nos sounded best.

    Thinking about going w/d/w. Which power amp do I want?

    W/d/w is like a foursome but one of the chicks isn't into me. Think about it.

    BE-100 or SLO-100?

    I don't care too much for my Soldano 4x12. I found a 70s Marshall can with greenbacks, and it opened a whole, different world with the SLO. Imterestingly, I like the Soldano 2x12 a lot.

    NEW USA Made 6L6 Tubes

    I have a great idea. How about we wait until this company actually has a product and maybe posts a few clips? Or we could just sit back, wait a few months, and enjoy the "I got burned" threads. Only TGP would find $85 for a non existent tube a possibly good deal.

    Bugera amps....good, bad, or.......

    When I worked in a music store my experience was that all the brands had a roughly equal failure rate. Contrary to popular opinion though, I found Mesas were right up there on the top of the failure rate, and Marshall too.

    Bugera amps....good, bad, or.......

    I think the angle of this thread is all wrong. The real issue isn't whether cheap amps should be cheap. The issue is why isn't there more outrage over the complete MILKING we get from companies like Gibson, Fender, Marshall and Friedman for supposedly quality instruments? It's obscene. In my...

    BE-100 or SLO-100?

    Not to pile on, but my SLO is fantastic at lower volumes as well. SLO still rules the roost for me, but it's not perfect.
