  • Flexi 50 Rules!

    Just got Bob Savage's Flexi 50 yesterday. Even at low volumes this mother sounds ballsy and full. Had the volume, boost and boost tone cranked, mids up, treble at noon and bass at 9 with master up to about a speaking tone level. Can't wait to dig in some more in my practice space and get those power tubes cooking. Wow! What a great product.

    I'm glad you're enjoying the amp! I'll bet it sounds incredible through your THD 2x12.

      Bob, all I did to record a soundclip was throw my Stedman SM-57 clone in front of the Vintage speaker angled in 45 degrees into my MBox and couldn't believe how well it recorded. I would post it but the clip is huge (78MB) and, honestly, I am embarrassed by my playing. Gotta get over that and jump right in. I'll post some soundclips at some point.

      Thanks so much!!

      George

        Congrats, it is such a bad ass amp. I have had mine for about a month now and am just loving the hell out of it. I love how it makes a strat sound like a strat and a Les Paul sound like a Les Paul. It is super pedal friendly as well.

          No doubt about it, that amp records like a dream. Convert the wav to an mp3 and post that sucker. I'd like to hear it.

              Bob, what would you use to do that conversion? I guess Pro Tools would be able to do that but I'd have to that later. But I'll post that soon.

              Also, any recommendations on a website that would allow me to post that clip for free?

              Thanks!

                You could download CDEX, and I'm not certain, but Winamp might do it too. My favorite if I'm using something other than Samplitude, however, is LAME using the RazorLAME interface.

                Sign up at digitalsoundplanet and you can post the clip.

                  Yeah, I hear it works great with Keeley's Time Machine Boost. I even heard it works well with the stock Boss SD-1. Have to try that as I have an SD-1.

                      Thanks Myron. That video you and Alex did was a deal closer for me as far as getting a flexi. Did I see somewhere that you have V30s in your THD 2x12?

                      Thanks.

                        I'd think it's a bit large to send via e-mail... that's the problem.
