  1. I bet it would be awesome. Tele's into Marshalls are awesome, teles into rectos are awesome. Teles into 6505s probably awesome too
  2. Baaaahahahahahahaha this thread is just way out of hand and ridiculous. Everyone showing off how much they know. The OP should've just asked for tube amps that could handle a live show
  3. Yeah, that's why I said perceived volume. Watts also aren't the only things that determine perceived volume which is why some amps sound louder for the same wattage than others.
  4. I will add that there are other variables when it comes to percieved volume however.
  5. The 100 watt ss would probably be louder. The rule of thumb is that it takes 3 times the wattage on a ss amp to have the percieved volume of a tube amp.
  6. I got the issue resolved with my bass player last night, so I'm fine with sticking with my band (thanks for asking!) Anyhow, something came up in conversation last night... In a band, who has the hardest job? Guitar Bass Drums Singer I ask this, because from his perspective, that's the order of who's got the hardest job in learning covers. According to him: drums are easiest because I never practice. I can listen to a song and fake it. Bass is next easiest because he can follow root notes, but it's also got some bass lines there that have to be done right. Guitars has the hardest job, in that they have to carry the melody and do guitar solos and so on. He doesn't count singers, because you're either born with the ability/talent to sing or not - but...there are exceptions that someone can be molded into a singer and do well with some effort/training. Basically that because I'm the drummer in this band, that I don't have a whole hell of a lot of say, musically speaking...that if I wanted to "step up" I could switch to guitar. I found that statement funny... I also disagreed with him that drums are the easiest - they are by far the most physically demanding instrument to play - it uses your entire body (and mind) to play drums and play them at a high level...and I've got over 15 years involved with being a drummer, and that's why I can listen to a song and know how to play it without ever having practiced it. I switched from guitar because I lack the patience to learn a song note for note...and when it comes to solos that I lose track of what they are playing, and because I don't know enough theory, I'm unable to wing it much more than a basic hack could do. That, and I knew I could land a gig being a drummer (because I was pretty good years before), and guitarists are a dime a dozen...and I wasn't going to sing, or play bass. I didn't say that drums were the easiest or the hardest, but that everyone has a job to do and they all can be the hardest or the easiest given the song...(but overall, bass players have it pretty easy! ) So, what's your take - most people here are guitarists, so it'll be interesting to have that perspective. SHUT THE {censored} UP
  7. I love the shefields. I wish I could find four of em for about 60 buxs. I'm cheap like that. I'd sell you 4 for 80 plus shipping One has a tear in the cone though, and shipping from alaska is ridiculous
  8. because they can. a lot of people bash their speakers just because they are peavey speakers, not because they're bad speakers. many of them are actually pretty good. The two I've had experience with are unbearably terrible. Sheffields.. ugh.
  9. Zzounds' return policy sounds great though. It says you can return almost any item within 30 days for any reason for a full refund. All you pay is shipping. Has anyone had any experience with this? Does anyone know of anyone who did this and how it turned out? zzounds employee alt
  10. http://cancer.suite101.com/article.cfm/diet_sodas_and_cancer Aspartame must reach 300 degrees to become formaldehyde. Your body is not 300 degrees.
  11. There's different ways to do it. There's no "right" way. It depends on the context. Yeah, I mean you can apply the basic concept in a number of ways. That was covered way at the beginning of the year though and succumbed in my memory to many more important concepts over the school year
  12. I was always thought that halfway values (.5) are rounded up but when I looked that up I found out that you can round them either up, to zero, half to even or stochastically. I. {censored}ing. Hate. Math. My AP chem teacher taught us a way to round it up or down based on if the preceding number is even or something weird like that. The idea is that, statistically speaking, you will probably be rounding up and down equally and thus not end up exaggerating your number by constantly rounding up or down.
  13. What we said. Did not read the thread
  14. How is 3/2 anything other than 1.5? It makes no sense to me It's for use in science. It's basically saying that 3 and 2 are both precise to the ones, so when dividing you give an answer that is precise to the ones because if you were to give it to the tenths it would imply a level of precision you do not have.
  15. 3/2 is 1. Not 1.5, but 1. This is what I was actually taught by one of my maths teachers, who is a Dr of Particle Physics, you even get taught his theories if you do a doctorate in Physics, but yeah, 3/2 is 1, because you always give the answer to the same amount of decimal places. hmm. You mean significant figures?
