  5. Amps and Amp Modeling
    I've been playing for a few years and have gotten fairly comfortable with the sound I like to hear from my guitar. I've gone to shops and played through a fair variety of high gain and high to low power heads and combos. I've played a variety of guitars, but I haven't spent a lot of time with...

  7. Amps and Amp Modeling
    I am struggling to get a decent tone on my solos. I use a 96 LP Standard and a Marshall JCM800 2205 and 4x12 and play stuff like AC/DC, UFO etc. If I set a good sound for rhythm on the amp using the normal channel it doesn't matter whether I use the boost channel or a Boss SD1 for solos. It...
  8. Amps and Amp Modeling
    Hey guys. I need someone's expertise to indentify a bunch of amps. I found a few amps on YouTube vid that really intrigued me. The problem is that these amp heads and cabinets don't seem to have a logo on them. Using my cell phone camera, I snapped a few pics of these mystery amps: Mystery...
  9. Amps and Amp Modeling
    Ok I know this has been done to death many times featuring many different topics. But Im stuck in limbo right now with this. And before anyone bothers I've already done a search and read through 99% of the results. Here's the story. I've recently began working on a duo set-up where me and a...
  10. Amps and Amp Modeling
    Hey guys, I'm going to buy a new amp, and my budget is only about $250. I play an Ibanez GAX75, and mostly classic rock, blues, and some hard rock. I don't gig, just play at home, so I need something small. Where I live here in Canada, I don't have much options, even finding them used. I'll...
  11. Amps and Amp Modeling
    Ok so i hear all this fuss about power tube saturation, i own a tube amp but i can't really send it to high volumes. Thankfully my amp sounds great at low volumes regardless. I hear about power tube saturation but i don't think i have a full grasp of what it actually sounds like. I know its...

    well i went shopping for guitars today...and played a js-1200 for the first time...it played like an old friend...neck reminded me of the js-1000 i tried (and strats)...body felt a little thicker and heavier....the tone sounded just like my guitars with fred in them...the chrome looks shinier on...
  13. Amps and Amp Modeling
    I have had a Marshall JCM 2000 for about a year now and it desperately needs new tubes. Being that the amp is super expencive I am apprehensive about cracking it open and getting my hands dirty. I want to replace the tubes with identical ones so biasing isn't necessary. Is this within the realm...
  14. Amps and Amp Modeling
    Ive been looking at two amps lately: the 6505 and jsx combo. Ive only been able to play the jsx in head version through a 6505 cabinet (which sounded great). So Im looking for opinions on the jsx combo (especially if you used to own or have played around with 6505/5150) seeing as its open back...

  16. The Guitar Rack
    I was looking at possibly having a floyd rose locking tremolo system installed in my guitar, however I was wondering if its by all means practical. I have a ibanez strat essentially and I was wondering are guitar techs able to put one in and typically how much do they run for, I would normally...
  17. Amps and Amp Modeling
    Hey, I just ordered a Peavey Valveking 112, but I hear the speaker sucks (I'll have to really see when it comes); and I was thinking about getting a new speaker. My first question is: Do I have to get a speaker that matches the same exact wattage of my amp (50W) or is it alright if its a...

    If you could have any amp EVER made..What would it be?? I'm still thinking about my answer....

    I made this Patch tonight..I used the information I've been able to find so far on speaker frequency ranges and resonance...What I did: I used the EQ to adjust the actual Frequency range to match the frequency range of the speaker.. Then I used the cab tuning to find the correct...
