    I put these 4 TRAINWRECK videos together last night.

    Found out my camcorder's mic doesn't handle high volumes very well, as the camera adds a little extra dirt. Oh well.

    That said there is alot more talk than action about these rare amps around here. SO, I did the geeky thing to do and got out the camera and played LOUD. :dude

    They are big files, so you might be best to download them first then play from your hard drive.

    UPDATED LINKS (3/17/06)

    Here are the videos I put together. Sorry my original links are out, but the guys on the Trainwreck forum were nice enough to host them. These are direct links to the 4 clips.

    Trainwreck Express, Les Paul, Callaham strat, 4x12 w/25 watters...

    Thanks, G

    UPDATE: some say they had trouble with their Windows Media players needed to download these CODECS. However I wouldn't monkey with things until I tried to play them first. Most can play these on Windows Media players (v9 or v10) fine. But just in case here are the links:
    http://www.free-codecs.com/Stinky_MPEG_2_Codec_download.htm
    http://www.free-codecs.com/AC3_Filter_download.htm

    Someone else posted this:
    I was missing the Dolby AC3 codecs. I downloaded the AC-3 ACM Decompressor zip file from
    http://www.free-codecs.com/AC-3_ACM_Decompressor_download.htm

    Unzip the file to a directory. Right mouse click on the AC3ACM.inf file and click install.

    PLAYER UPDATE: Try this player folks if you were having trouble playing the clips before:
    http://www.afterdawn.com/software/video_software/video_players/media_player_classic.cfm

    "Media player classic". I have a 6 year old laptop that I used as a test, since my home PC was working fine. The laptop is only 550 mhz machine running windows xp (originally an ME machine) and it too choked on the videos using window media player 9. I update the AC3 codec, still no go. THEN I downloaded the "Media player classic" from the link above and it worked. It was the fix on at least this old machine. Thank you for whoever originally posted the "media player classic" player tip.

    Having owned 3 Wrecks and having been Kenny's go to demo guy when potential customers contacted him back in the day, I have had no shortage of action with TWs.

    I only have windows media player in my Windows XP machine, so that is all I have to test it on.

    They also play on my friends Windows XP machine, who helped me setting this up.

    I see them, but can't hear anything. What's the codec?

    Nope. Sold the Liverpool and Express(which was shipped with a shorted out power tube) when I got my first Bogners and VHTs. I gave the Blackbox to a good friend who was an Artist rep for a guitar company that I used to endorse back in the early "90s.

    If you're still in touch with Kenny, please say what's up for me. He's mos def one of G#d's prototypes. Fascinating character.

    Not sure on the codec, but it's the player that came with my Windows XP.

    If you can tell me how to check let me know and I'll try.

    I'll try opening them in Windows Media Player. Thanks for posting them, nonetheless. I'd like to check out a Wreck again. It's been at least 11 years.

    Are we allowed to post a thread about clips in this section now, or do they go to members soundclips??

    I am all for having them posted here, as I stated in the thread about it.

    Whats the verdict?

    Didn't know there was a separate place for clips. That said, seems folks were watching the other wreck thread here so it made since. Heck I'll just post there too.

    If the moderator moves this one, so be it.

    Cheers,

    G

    '92 Callaham strat w/Fralin single coils

    '59 Les Paul standard w/PAFs (bought in '78 for $3725) way out of my league these days... but glad I kept it. WAY glad.

    Bitchin' tone and playing. Sounds extremely similar to the Wreck I played at Ultrasound a while back.
