I have been trying to get my tube stash in order, but I have some trouble identifying some, they came from differents sources troughout the years and I cannot find any information I had from the sellers.
This first one :
I can't really even guess what it is.
Then a second...
It's been a strange week riddled with tubes last week.
My father in law died just before Christmas (may he rest in peace, he fought a difficult battle). He used to work for French television. The last week-end we were at his former house to clean and throw away some stuff. My wife found this...
We did a cover of DeRobert & The Half-Truth with my band while we were in lockdown. It has just been released.
I use a cheap (but nice !) Bacchus super Strat for rythm, and my 1982 Greco SA59-120 for the solo, through a cranked 68 Super Reverb into a Two Notes Captor X.
I hope you like it.
I have discovered those kids a few years ago, and I find them hugely talented : great songs (you feel the Stevie Wonder influence) , great musicianship, seem to put on a great show, release new stuff regularly.
Yet I have almost never seen them mentioned here.
Quite often we will see threads...
Those have just been released today : two 4x12, one 2x12 (with G12-65s, great !), two 1x8.
Can't wait to try them, especially the 2x12 with G12-65s.
If they are as good as the BHG cabs, this pack will be a winner.
I'm proud of my Two notes boys :)...
I have a Fuchs ODS PA100 (100W, 4 x 6L6s).
The problem started yesterday : I play for a few minutes (less than 10), the sounds cut out abruptly. I have checked the cables, also changed all the power tubes, but the problem comes back anyway.
Any idea where it could come from ?
It’s a bit...
I have spotted a 1965 BF Deluxe (non reverb) on a French site, seems in good condition in general, has been serviced, but doesn't have the original speaker (it's a Weber now). Now, I would prefer a Deluxe with Reverb, but the prices are getting quite high for those amp, this non Reverb...
I already have a Bugera 1960 Infinium, great amp for quite a low price, does hard rock and VH type tones well, and also it has some really good crunch tones.
But... I have just seen a local ad for a decently priced Marshall SV20H, and I wonder if it would nail the same type of tones, with the...
Someone is proposing a Rivera 55-112 in exchange of one of my guitars that I'm selling.
I have never tried this amp, I just knwo Rivera from their rather good reputation.
I already have a '82 Vibrolux and '68 Super Reverb, so what can I expect different from this amp ?
I have heard some...
Finished on Sunday before the end of quarantine in France.
It was nice to record like that, a first for us. I learned quite a bit working on it as far as getting a cool tone and trying toput a good performance on (digital) tape.
And then making a video out of it.
A quick take of my Fuchs ODS PA-100. Drive channel with mid boost on.
The cab is a Two Rock 2x12 with Celestion G12-65 and Eminence RWB.
Guitar is a Tokai Goldstar Strat from 1984 (?), fitted with Lollar Blonde pickups, bridge pickup here.
Recorded with a Zoom Q2N.
Backing track courtesy...
I got this speaker some time ago in a 2x12 Two Rock cab.
I can't find any info about it on Internet : when were they made, technical specs, are they sought after , price level etc...
Here's the beast :
Any help would be appreciated.
I have this really nice Tokai Strat from 1983 which I love...except the pickups, which are average.
I have found a set of Blonde Lollars for a good price, but I wonder if they would fit for funk, as it's my primary style, I'm thinking about the middle + neck position specifically. I have...
Just in today... I have sold my 1978 SA700 to get this one, it's a beauty.
Had its neck broken and repaired, flawlessy imo, hence a rather interesting price...
Fitted with with Dry 1982 pickups.
Under fire tonight for its first rehearsal.
First unplugged test let me think that this is a winner.
I'm looking to replace my Fender Deluxe Reverb Custom 68, which has served me well but is a bit underpowered sometimes (for instance when I play with a big band).
So I have been looking at more powerful amps for replacement (second hand, that's important for the budget I have...), and I have...
I have been toying around with the idea of mixing two class A converters, like TAD Class A converters ( https://www.tubeampdoctor.com/product_info.php?products_id=5235&url_node_name=TAD_Equipment_TAD_Class_A_Converter&selected_slave_id=669&language=en ) with two 6L6s in my 100W Fuchs, to lower...
Last year I stumbled on an ad on Facebook for a cheap Burny Les Paul, seemingly an early 80's model.
Turned out after some research that it was a 1983 RLG-50. So I bought it, changed the pickups to some Suhr Thornbuckers, had it set up, and well that was a great guitar.
But even after some time...
