  1. I can get a fairly convincing multi head tape sound from the dual delay engine... Plus, their dual delay is much more versatile and useful to me than the multi-head tape. Jmo
  2. I know he's been catching a lot of crap and BS for all the changes around here, but whatever happens to this forum, Phil's the man. A month or so ago, I decided to just drop by to see if there was anything interesting. Well 99% of the threads were just more BS and OT threads about boobs and/or fecal matter... But I noticed one thread that stood out above them all... A practical on-topic thread by Phil, announcing an awesome deal from Cascade - the "Bare Essentials Fathead mic" - only $129!! I had been thinking about building up my mic locker, and wanted to first get a nice guitar mic... Not a big fan of the 57, and I'd heard great things about the Fatheads before from various peeps, but never wanted to fork over the cash for one... But for $129, how could I pass that up? Well I bought one after Phil's thread found my eyes, and.... ...WOW... Freaking amazing mic for guitar amps!! After using 57's for years (which aren't bad mics at all), and even some e906's for a bit, I can honestly say that the fathead is without a doubt the best mic I've ever used. Finally a mic that truly captures my actual guitar tone without some crazy EQ'ing by the sound guy. And that's the best way to describe it; a great representation of how your amp and soeakers actually sound. Crazy part is the placement of the Fathead. Normally... In fact with all dynamic mics I've ever used, and from everything I've heard, they sound the absolute worst when placed directly over the speaker cone - thin, piercing treble, and almost no low end. But with the Fathead, when placed on the edge of the cone (where I usually put a 57/etc), there was a bit too much low end. And then I went to the recording studio and got to record with a seasoned pro named Chris Clayton - he's used a fathead and a 57 to record my cab, and he places the fathead directly over the speaker cone... WTF?? Thought that was really bizarre, but then I heard it, and holy cow... Best my tone has ever sounded. Obviously he had some really high end preamps and other processors that helped... ... But that's what he recommended, so I tried it live a few times, and indeed... Best tone I've ever had, and has made my sound guy's life much easier. So I have Phil to thank for the awesome recommendation. And that's not the first time he's given me some awesome pointers. Considering what a dump this place has become, I hope people realize how lucky we have been to have such a knowledgable studio pro with Phil O'Keefe. He's stayed classy this whole time, and again... Just wanna say thanks Phil.
  3. Lol... I ditched this forum almost completely on the most recent software switch (what... HC 3.0? 4.0?)... Biggest reason? Not iPad or iPhone friendly... What the fruck kinda designer or mod allows a new software update to ANY forum without making absolutely certain it's fully compatible with today's most popular technology. Absolutely ridiculous and inexcusable. Just a pathetic attempt to bring new life to a dying forum. I could rant about that for hours, but I won't... Just stupid and senseless to not make any forum update completely in tune with technology that a growing and large part of the cyber population uses. Stupid is as stupid does.
  4. Until the "top men" figure out how to make this forum more friendly for ipad users, I'm out. Still can't quote, and still can't access my subscriptions on the forum without getting a ridiculously jumbled email... So I'm done. This was my favorite place to talk gear, mainly because of all the personalities... But it's useless now. Phil, I really wish you all would've gotten this right before making the switch, because this is garbage.
  5. Haha... I'm a super contributor, and I've posted maybe 3 times on this new forum software.
  6. I thought I saw a ghost come out of my ass one time, but I realized about 2.5 seconds later that it was just a fart.
  7. Noice Bob!! I actually just got a '67 Bandmaster (Blackface circuit), and it sounds AWESOME. I'll post a NAD thread as soon as I get the cab for it. My rig is much more epic now with it.

  9. Yup... I'm not really one to complain about a free forum... But this is pathetic. Seriously... I've tried posting this 3 times now, and my words are getting less and less nice each time.

  12. Okay... Just to update my previous posts... Major freakin haul... In: ('67 Bandmaster AB763 blackface circuit) (2x12 Stagecraft Blues Jack cab... Except mine will have aged silver grill cloth to match the BM) Out:

So I wouldn't expect any speaker breakup from a 40 watt amp, but you should be able to crank that Bandmaster without killing a speaker. The 50 watters (C12N?) might be more forgiving, and probably closer to what Fender put in originally. The C12N is one of the speakers that Jensen themselves recommend for my model of Bandmaster... So that's good to know. Originally Posted by The Lou-Dog The Jensen in my DRRI sounds great now that it's been broken in. I've got mates who tour with little Two Rock studio 22 heads and put them through Jensens in the Fender amps in backlines and say they sounds 90 percent as good as the Weber/Celestion/JBL's they've got in their cabs at home. I'm not really concerned with "yeah, but are they as good as Celestions/Webers?"... This may be a tall order, but what I'm really concerned with or rather looking for is a pair of speakers to really compliment this classic Blackface amp. And seeing as how the original owner of this amp most likely used Jensen C12n's, I'm hoping the reissues, while not the same or as good as the original vintage C12n's, will suffice and still sound pretty good. Each speaker will run me only about $75... So I'm probably asking too much, but I figure they're worth a shot since they're so cheap.

  20. Originally Posted by Phil O'Keefe No... other than the fact that they're not vintage Jensens. The reissues are decent, but the originals are legendary. Still, I purchased a C10R from a local store (OC Speaker) to go into my Princeton Amp as a stopgap measure until I could order a Weber for it. It's been a few years now, and the Jensen RI is still in there. I was frankly a bit surprised by it - especially in light of the fact that I had read some rather unkind reviews of the reissues. The reviews are correct in that the RI is not a clone of the old ones, but they still sound pretty good IMO. Efficiency is in the 95-96dB @ 1W / 1m range, which is decent, but not spectacular, so if you're looking for "LOUD", you may want to look elsewhere and try to get something in the 101-103dB @ 1W / 1m range. I'm not too worried about "loud"... Just a pair of speakers that sound great and compliment the amp.
