    Which is the best JTM45 clone kit?

    I've got a Mojotone JTM45 for sale that is reaaallllly good! I've stuck it in a Sourmash 18w green head cabinet and I think the look is perfect. It's my first Mojotone after lots of others clones and REALLY impressed!

    Speaker suggestions for Trainwreck Liverpool clone

    Great advice, thank you everyone. Well I've committed to buying the Red Fangs so I have to give them a go. Or IT rather as I've already found a buyer for one of them. Since I am looking to do a 1x12, I'm not overly concerned with the sensitivity of the Fang. If I go with a Scumback M75, then I'd...

    Tubes and Trainwrecks

    Thread Revival!!! So I've seen some listed tubes for everything but Liverpools. I have a quad of the old Russian EL84's covered. What about the preamp? I have plenty of Telefunken, Mullard, RCA, GE, Amprex etc. Did Ei's and Tungsram's come in the Pool's preamp as well?

    Speaker suggestions for Trainwreck Liverpool clone

    Thank you for the replies. Anyone else, please chime in. In the meantime I think it's time to look for a Scumback.

    Speaker suggestions for Trainwreck Liverpool clone

    25w Greenbacks? Are these "it"? I'm a closed back 2x12 kind of guy with nice low end. So I'm a little hesitant to go open back. But I can't deny there's an urge to go 1x12 open back stained pine cabinet for some strange. Thoughts?

    Biggest sounding 2x12

    The Mesa Rectifier 2x12's have tremendous bass response. Only other one I could recommend with confidence is a Port City OS Wave 2x12. http://www.mesaboogie.com/Product_Info/Guitar%20Cabinets/RECTOcabs/Recto2x12H-LG.htm http://portcityamps.com/products/cabinets/2x10-2x12-and-2x12-os-wave/

    What are your 5 favorite speakers?

    WOW I'm really shocked no one has mentioned the Reeves Vintage Purple. Far and away the best speaker I'm owned. Now for 100+W amps, cranked with huge sound I like the bigger brother, Eminence George Lynch Super V12. Others that I like are the EVM12L, Hellatone 60L and the Eminence Red, White and...

    Orange Rockerverb Question

    I have one and yes it is. All amps, even ones with an effects loop can have a pedal or two that just doesnt sound as good as it did with another amp. But I am pedal heavy using mostly Gilmour's setup and the BK Butler Tube Driver kills with this amp. The Electric Mistress as well. The Carbon...

    Plexi sound without blood dripping from my ears...

    "...some of the tone comes from big iron and 100w of headroom moving speakers..." I would agree with that somewhat. But that's not what he's saying. He's saying the TUBES make the Plexi tone. That's discounting the preamp circuit which is where I disagree. There's whole sites dedicated to the...

    Plexi sound without blood dripping from my ears...

    I had a 18W Plexi built on a Hammond chassis with 2 EL84's and it friggin killed. Especially when I stuck in some Tesla Hex' power and Brimar preamp tubes. They can be had cheap on ebay and the circuit is not hard at all to build in. I strongly disagree that it's not Plexi tone. It really killed...

    A question for Orange RV50 owners...

    Slightly off topic but has anyone tried the new MKII? I have the 1st version of the RV50 (Limited Edition in white) and have been offered a deal I can't refuse. I love this amp so much that I would like to buy the MKII. Also, has anyone found the holy grail in NOS preamp tubes for this amp? I've...

    Motor City Pickups?

    Not to change focus of the thread but since you mentioned metal, I have a WB UV20 bridge that's available. I also have set of Suhr DSH+ and DSV for higher output.
