I keep going back and forth between the Wizard, WOF, and RMC10. Soundclips make it tough to judge given differing gear, terrible recording, etc. I play mainly doom style stuff as the name might imply. Anyone used all three? Help me out, please.
Very interested to hear how these compare to the CL80. Thinking a quad of the creambacks for a 4x12 to go with a JCM 800 2203 to go with the quad of cl80's I run my Dual Rectifier through. Tool/Sabbath/Pumpkins/Jane's Addiction style tones, I guess.
I'm looking for something that can do an over the top, high gain Marshall crunch ala Jonny Greenwood and his Shredmaster. I'm considering the Suhr Riot, Emma Reezafratzitz, Crunch Box, and Box of Metal as now. Any input would be appreciated. Thanks!
I don't know if it's been mentioned, but the LP jrs from musicians friend are fantastic. If you can find a used one with a rosewood fretboard, I'd grab it. I have two: sunburst and TV yellow and they are both outstanding, perfect guitars.
Hey everyone, I'm looking to get, as the title suggests, a clone of the high powered tweed twin. I know Victoria makes one, and I love my Victoria 5e3. Who else makes them? Which ones are the better ones to consider? Also, what speakers....golds maybe?
Has anyone tried the Weber alnico blue pup and/or silver ten in their tweed Bassman? or how about kt-66's? I have an LTD that I just got via trade, and I also have a 57 Twin RI and a 5e7. The Twin and Bandmaster have vintage style speakers, and are all kept 'vintage correct'. Therefore, I...
it seems to me that it has something to do with variations among guitars. for example, line up three R9 les pauls and they will all sound different, so if you find one you REALLY like you kind of have to buy that very one. amps, however, sound largely the same. a victoria deluxe sounds the...
How about GEC kt66's and 88's? Those are the main ones I need, and they seem to be the hardest to find. Are these actually running out or is it just hoarding? No one seems to have any except for sketchy looking ones that pop up on ebay from time to time.
maybe 'audiophiles' and 'musicians' should get together, get out the pitchforks and torches and start storming rockstars houses. i bet neil young, richie blackmore, and jimmy page have 100x as many tubes than they'll ever use including backups. a seige might be in order!
right, i'm definitely going to start buying very soon...like next paycheck soon. anyway, i guess i meant 'running out' in the absolute sense....like we won't be able find mullard 12ax7's at all. speaking of which: does anyone know where there are GEC kt66's and/or 88's in stock?
i'm sure we've all noticed the skyrocketing prices and the lack of inventory at a lot of NOS tube sites and ebay...so it begs the question: are we witnessing the extinction of the 'holy grail' tubes? are we really beginning to run out or are we just up against the 'hoarders' with tons and tons...
