couldn't agree more. and further, what ever happened to developing your own sound? lots of great bands do great things that sound (god forbid) original by making use of cheap and/or funky equipment. it should be more about the notes and less the tone.
that said, i'm really gasing for the Orange AD30HTC.
(i'm such a hypocrit.)
But Marshalls and Les Pauls kind of belong together dont they?
you bet they do! i'm a sort of sloppy improv blues lead player and i swear with the LP/Marshall together i feel like i'm chanelling Page's voodoo (some moments, at least).
I thought that pre-amp tubes do not neet re-biasing. Could you
yes yes. you're absolutley right. i just meant that if you're going to open it up anyway, you might as well double check the bias in case the joker that replaced the power tubes didn't do it properly. sorry for the confusion.
