I approve a Dual Recto as a wedding present.
Got 2 minutes in. Dude is a tool.
I'm still rocking a Axe-FX Standard, so I guess I can't relate.
Shut up! That's my dad!
Whatever floats his boat.... some people are still out there taking pictures with a 1940's Rolleiflex TLR. People seem to THINK their amps are still worth what they paid, but I wonder if he's tried selling any big amps lately? they're not moving.
I've had my 6505 up on the chopping block forever. Ugh.
Hmmm, as a wedding present for himself. Wonder if he's still married...
"We can enjoy it together dear! I promise!"
The "holding its financial value" canard is a weird one to wield to me. A new 100-watt Dual Rectifier is $2400-$2600 these days. I can find used ones on Guitar Center's site for less than half that all day. Sometimes less on Craigslist and Reverb. 6505s are $1K new, but I can find them for almost half at the same sources.
He can demean "outdated processors" all he likes, but the albums that used PODFarm or Pod HDs or Axe-FX Standard or whatever aren't being rerecorded. The market moves on, but that hardly means the product is unusable now. A lot of gigging guitarists in my neck of the woods use inexpensive rackmount Line 6, BOSS and even Behringer stuff - in 2019! - to get the job done with no complaints. A guy I know slays all the time with a frickin' Fender Mustang. They're all just tools to achieve an end result.
I have a Rolleiflex 2.8E from 1956!
I gave up at 1:41. Couldn't hack it.
Nice thread Jive.
He reminds me a bit of Penn of Penn and Teller. Loved their old "Bullsh&t" series for poking fun at how deadly serious people are about all sorts of nonsense. So I enjoyed his "schtick" - at least I'm not bored.
If you can't laugh along with him odds are you take the subject of modeling way too seriously.
Oddly enough; he kind of both looks AND sounds like him.
Slight of hand game is super weak, though.
That guy's kind of a dumbass.
Amps are holding their value? A 2 channel 100-watt JVM410H sells for $2,000 new. There are 4-channel variants that have sold for less than $1,200 used on eBay.
He said it. Ergo, it's true.
Someone is asking him about tone and he responds talking about resale value. Makes sense. He doesn't like modelers. AWESOME! Don't get one.
I must be an outlier in that I actually like Glenn. He has his opinions... don't we all.
There must be a lot of bass players up in here.
