    Pairing the right pedal with the right amp...

    I was initially trying to sent this message to forum member @rjaneshek but I was given an error message that he had exceeded the maximum number of allowable messages. Must a popular member! My message to him was in response to a quite old thread that someone had started in regards to pairing a...

    Rivera advice needed...

    TL;DR - Is the original Knucklehead 55 more or less similarly voiced to the R55-12? - What are they worth in Australia? Years ago I had a Rivera 55-12. From studios to live gigs, everywhere I got compliments on my tone. But a bout of severe depression saw me sell it along with loads...

    DRRI whirling noise issue

    I have a DRRI and recently replaced the power tubes and a couple of the pre-amp tubes. When I add a boost pedal (there are 3 I've tried), it gives this noise that sounds like a phaser from the original Star Trek. Any thoughts or suggestions on what might be going on here would be greatly...

    Vox AC15 Speaker

    I recently bought a used AC15 for $300. I knew little about Vox amps and later discovered the speaker was an Eminence Blackheart 1216b. I am assuming the guy put it in in order to sell it to someone without a clue (like me). Will changing to a greenback or Alnico BLUE make a huge difference...

    Looking for the perfect two-channel amp

    Heya, folks! I'm looking for a 2-channel amp and hope you can help. I play various shades of rock 'n roll: everything from raunchy punk to crunchy indie to driven roots-type stuff to clean and crisp... whatever! I don't think my requirements are too crazy given the wide variety of amazing amps...

    BE-50 Deluxe and feedback

    I recently got my hands on a BE-50 Deluxe and it sounds amazing but I've ran into a bit of an issue. I can't seem to push the gain at higher volume and when I say higher volumes I mean 3 and above (3 being 10 o'clock). when I turn the gain up I get horrendous feedback. I've tried many things to...

    Looking for a new “small” tube head in the $1,000-$1,300 range. What are some good options that fit my inconvenient amount of preferences?

    Alright, so here goes. I have a Victory Kraken (50w) at the moment, but I’m not digging it. The clean sounds are great, but the switching system sucks and the gain is too harsh for my taste. The thing is, I’m super picky about what features my amps have, which makes it super difficult to find...

    Eminence 1258

    Hi, I’m looking to buy a cab to go with my Orange Micro Dark. I found a cab I’m interested in and it’s comes equipped with an eminence 1258. I like the way it sounds in most of the demos I’ve heard but I can’t really find anything with people playing metal music and was wondering what some...

    How close is the Two Rock Studio Signature to the Classic Reverb Signature?

    So last year i had to sell my CRS for some cash, and have finally got the funds back to get another amp. Obviously within the time I've had my eye on the Studio Sig and although I love my C.R.S. it was a bit loud at some times. So im curious if anyone has experience between the two in regards to...

    Dud Mark V 25?

    Hi, I'm the new owner of a used Mark V 25 which I am very excited about. However this excitement is diminishing as I'm finding it a bit lifeless and "flubby". When I got it, I noticed it was a bit noisy so I replaced the V1 tube for a spax7 e the amp is much quieter now. For frame of...

    MESA DUAL CALIBER 5 VOLUME ISSUE

    Hey guys so I bought my first Mesa. Paired it with this SUNN 4x12 i believe to be series/parallel at 4ohms. Anyway I have a fender 1x12 40 watt and that fender blows this Mesa out the water as far as volume and more importantly head room. I have the Mesa dialed and even on 10 the clean doesn’t...

    Need help deciding which direction I need to go with my amps?

    I'm finally in the market for a new amp! I've gone through several amps in my time, I had a Hot Rod Deville as my first amp, traded that in for a Dr. Z Remedy, then sold that for a Boogie Mark IIC+, then got a Supro Thunderbolt, sold the Boogie for an Orange Thunderverb 50 and a vintage JCM800...

    Amps and pedals galore: Mad Muse Studios tour video

    There‘s a lot to love in this Mad Muse Studios tour from Warren Huart’s “Produce Like A Pro” YouTube channel. A very long vid, to be sure. But well worth viewing, in my opinion, for all the precious tidbits around interaction design, recording studio DIY construction, and, of course, gear. The...

    Poll: Out of these 2 guitar cabinets...

    I'm just curious and trying to narrow it down and see which cab people prefer between these two 4x12 cabinets.... I play more progressive/post rock/math rock/metal styles. So I am basically just looking for a great all around cabinet that sounds good with any style and has tight low end. And...

    Recording A Loud Amp

    Title says it all. I've got a 120w Peavy 5150 with a 4x12 Marshall running 75w speakers. I run my "clean" channel about 6, and my dirty about 4. Both of the gain's are up to about 6. I DON'T want to hear you tell me to turn it down, I've already discovered that my tone isn't what I want at lower...

    Potentiometer replacement. What would you recommend?

    Hello everybody. I have a Laney IRT-Studio guitar amp (valve 15W tube amp) and the volume knob of the clean channel is wrong: it makes noise when moved and jumps values (from a minimum volume to full power even when keeping it at low values and moving it a little bit). My dad is an engineer...

    What do you say - What's the future of pedals - and gear in general?

    [Not sure what forum is best for this - but as effects pedals have my main concern - this is why I posted here - Mods can decide to move the thread if necessary] Here, thinking about what the future is for all the gear I painfully have acquired over many years, guitars, amps and not least...
