    This is sick! What goes into your selection of amplifiers? I've noticed you use very unique amplifiers. Anyway, this was really good. Love your sound.

    Thanks, man! I really appreciate it!

    Re: amps: I've had a couple of different phases depending on what genre of music I was playing. During my hair metal days I spent BIG bux on preamps and power amps. I thought pedals were crap.

    When I realized pedals were awesome, I had to figure out which of my items in the inventory worked well with pedal dirt. Since I play pretty loud post-rock stuff with bands, I also needed loud stuff. Luckily, I had some rack power amps with big iron, plus a couple of loud solid state heads.

    I never played serious classic rock, so I never really gravitated toward traditional marshall heads or Fender combos. When I spent that kind of money, it was for rare, expensive, rack gear. Luckily, some of that stuff is working well for me now, because I don't like buying expensive amps anymore. They cost too much every time you buy a new one, and lots of them sound VERY similar.

    When I pick an amp to play it must meet these criteria:
    1. an incredible clean channel with a Marshally Midrange
    2. Reliable
    3. Loud
    4. Must not break up early.
    5. Must sound great with a Big Muff
    6. low price is a plus

    Stuff that works:
    1. Acoustic 150 SS Head
    2. S2amps Pre2 preamp + Rivera or VHT power amp
    3. Pearce G2R SS rack head
    4. Egnater IE-4 + Rivera or VHT power amp
    5. Groove Tubes Trio + Rivera or VHT power amp
    6. The Egnater Seminar head works well as a stand alone head or as a power amp for the above mentioned preamps.

    I hope that helps.

    Thank you so much, I've learned so much from your gear vids and demos. I just pulled the trigger on a traynor yba-1 head. My logic was the same, clean channel to sound good with a big muff. In your opinion, what's a good readily available articulate muff? Something that sounds good with open chords and palm muting

    Thanks for the kind words!

    RE: Muffs. They are such a personal thing. Every one of them sounds a little bit different. I'll just throw a few out there that I REALLY like to try to make it easier. (I'm also trying not to suggest things that are impossible to find)
    (oh, and I won't recommend something I haven't owned)

    (For "good with palm muting", are you looking for "tighter" or a "WALL OF SOUND"?)

    Either way, here are a few good ones:

    Skreddy - Zero
    Stomp Under Foot - Violet Ram's Head/Ram's Head
    Stomp Under Foot - Tri Muff
    Stomp Under Foot - Red Army/Civil War/Green Russian
    Catalinbread - Manx Loaghton
    Basic Audio - Foxey Lady

    Here's a REALLY good deal, BTW:

    Wall of sound definitely, I've been super curious about the manx. I have a tri pie but feel like there could be something better suited to my needs

    Interesting. What don't you like about the tri pi? I had one and it was pretty good. Sounded pretty similar to the suf tri muff and the skreddy zero.

    It sounds like you want something Russian flavored.
