    Solid Cables - Still in business?

    Without getting into cable "mojo" I'll just say that the Dynamic Arc Ultra is by far the best built cable I've ever encountered. I'm a fan and had been using a pair of them, but recently misplaced one during a move. The website hasn't been updated in a while and most of the listed dealers don't...

    Bang and Blame Delay

    I really dig the delay on this song. Not hyped digital, not dirty or low-fi analog ... just really natural (dare I say, "organic"). watch?v=4cdZQ41rGAg Peter Buck wasn't known as a big user of delay, and I'm pretty sure that a studio rack mount unit was used on the track. That being said, I'd...

    I don't trust new amps

    That's a quote excerpt from Joe Bonamassa in the latest PG. Full quote is: "I don't trust new amps. Well, I certainly don’t trust boutique amps because they blow up. I’ve always had bad luck with them." I'm not a touring pro and over time I've mostly played vintage amps, but I'm really...

    Vibe Pedal Troubleshooting (Fulltone MDV-3)

    For those of you familiar with vibe schematics and soldering irons, see if you can make sense of this ... My MDV-3 works perfectly in Chorus mode 100% of the time, but the Vibrato mode produces intermittent results. When I flip the switch to Vibrato, sometimes it works fine, sometimes there's...

    Hiwatt + Marshall Phase Issues

    I read on another board that the output of Hiwatts and Marshalls are out of phase with each other. Can anyone familiar with the schematics (Hiwatt DR-103 and Marshall 1992) confirm or deny? Many thanks. - DB

    25" scale length: "Best of both worlds" or "neither here nor there"

    Not looking to debate whether or not scale length affects tone. There's already a long thread on that topic. :crazy For those who view scale length as a meaningful part of the tonal recipe ... A key element of the Gibson-esque tone equation is a "short" scale ranging from 24.5" to 24.75"...

    EL34: Anyone prefer Chinese to Winged C?

    Most comments I've seen tout the SED "Winged C" (f/k/a Svetlana) as the best choice for high voltage Brit-style designs. I've heard comparatively little praise for the Chinese EL34B (e.g., the Ruby-branded ones), but before I drop coin on a a bunch of glass I'm curious if anyone has A/B'd the...

    The new VG has a PR item on what looks like a new version of the SS (page 176 for those playing along at home). The item refers readers to the Peterson website, which is enigmatically unresponsive to all searches for anything of this nature. Does anyone have the inside scoop on this mystery...

    Pedal that sounds like me

    What would be the best pedal to make me sound more like me? I know so much of my tone has to do with my hands/fingers/pick attack/etc ... MMMV ... I may never "nail" my tone, but surely there's a pedal that can get me more in that basic ballpark of me-ness, no? FYI, FWIW, I'm playing...

    Hiwatt 60-cycle hum

    My '72 Hiwatt DR-103 has got a hum issue that is proving hard to trace. It's not too bad, except when all three volumes are cranked or close to it. At that point, moving the Bass knob past 11:00 brings up a low-level 60-cycle hum that gets progressively louder as the control is turned up...
