    Friedman Smallbox 50 Questions

    Your correct on the bright switches. I ended up experimenting with speakers to tame some of the upper mids on the lead channel. I ended up with Creamback 65 in a Bogner Cube. I have the 2x12 with vintage 30’s but it just hasn’t worked for me with those speakers. I may try a couple 25 watt...

    Timeline putting tuner>right out, left completely panned to right, silent tuning?

    is it possible ? Anybody try it. The left output would need to be silent so using a midi pedal I could pull up a tuning patch in the loop.

    Friedman BE-100 Deluxe vs Smallbox

    I’ve only owned the Smallbox. I really like it but I was not happy with Vintage 30’s in the matching 2x12 cab. I rolled a bunch of speakers through a Cube and settled on Celestion Creamback 65. Absolutely awesome. Now I’m just using a Bogner cube and have the Friedman 2x12 for sale.

    Guitar - Cord - Amp?

    I prefer straight in. It feels better and to my ears which are trashed sounds better. However I really love pedals for the art of making music, color, texture... I throw time based fx & tuner in the loop but never a tuner between the guitar and the amp. I’ve tried switchers, boost, buffers, less...

    Am I crazy or does my amp sound different every day?

    I agree with Lloyd. I run a variac and a conditioner for consistent line voltage that has helped immensely. *However I’m a type 1 diabetic and have found that I’ll be playing thinking that I have a Bad tube or something is jacked up and then realize (because I’m Cranky as Hell) I need to check...

    Studio Slips love (I think I have a Problem)

    I have several. For heads Clamshell single padding and handle opening to carry. No pocket for me, they always get in the way. I choose Studio Slips from experience with other manufacturers especially for heads. Tuki is good for cabs but not better. IMHO

    BadCat Choices - Advice Please

    I have a 2013 black cat 30r without K master. I haven’t been able to crank it up yet but I have to say that the touch sensitivity is something to behold on that amp. I’m running a Ep booster in front.

    1x12 vs 2x12

    One of the advantages of using a 1x12 is you’re attenuating the volume some compared the the 2x12, plus I like getting the speaker moving/pushed more. Of course it all depends on the environment. Sometimes you just need a bigger cab.

    Does a VOX AC30 suck if you arent playing it loud ?

    Try a boost pedal for low volume

    The Heaviest ( in terms of weight ) amp you owned and the misfortune of lugging it around ?

    I had a mid 70’s twin with sro’s in it. In the 70’s we used to have these insane parties at a house in Ohio. The band would play in the basement with long steep steps. A friend insisted on carrying my amp down after I bitched about how heavy it was, He insisted. I’m 5/8 he’s probably 5/6 and not...

    Power conditioner or voltage regulator? What should I use to get consistent power at different locations?

    The downside of this setup is I manually set the voltage, so if I get a spike from the outlet the voltage goes up on my rig. I can set the voltage where I want it, lower for some amps. On some regulators + or - 5% was the deal breaker for me especially when biasing a amp.

    Pine cabinets ... am I missing out?

    I have a Bob Burt V solid pine cab. It’s without a doubt the best sounding 2x12 I’ve ever had And I’ve had lots O cabs over the years.

    How to get an "airy" ambience a la Allan Holdsworth

    I checked out a Pearce to buy in Orange County back in the 80’s. The guy had Tinnitus so bad I couldn’t even crack the volume up louder than a miniature transistor radio. (Perhaps he was a polite neighbor) I remember that the attack of the notes were totally overloading/clipping and that it...

    Why does Jimi string his low E string like this?

    Once you go stainless... do you ever go back?

    I don’t know if this has been mentioned yet but your strings last longer since they don’t grind the nickel. One of my Guitar’s (83) I’ve had to re fret 3 times. I only wish I had tried them sooner.

    Fishman Loudbox Artist problem..

    I’m in a very dry climate but sprayed the fx loops anyways to no avail. I would advise steering away from the Fishman products. The tolex is a dead giveaway of how cheap these amps are made.

    Is the Marshall Jubilee basically a JCM800 with diodes in the preamp?

    My experience, I felt like it had a really nice Solo voice mid gain/higher gain. Higher gain settings was a problem for me because I could not clean it up nearly enough by lowering the volume on my guitar. I don’t know if the Diodes have something to do with that. I ran the master anywhere from...

    Fishman Loudbox Artist problem..

    I wanted to add to this. I have the Artist and channel 1’s volume started fading up and down then out completely dead. And of course the Tolex will rip if you sneeze on it. I'm really not happy about this especially since there is a known issue that Fishman is aware of. They should cover the...
