  1. Some songs I'm right on but I can't figure out what is going on with the slow drumming. I wonder if there is latency with the signal getting back to the recorder or something. What is a good technic or fix for something like that ...other than time shift the drum track?
  2. I always thought that JJs sounded the best out of the new age t0obs. I think you can get graded tubes depending on your amp... especially for a Mesa. You don't want them red plating.
  3. I've been wanting one of these for a while and found one that was pretty clean. It's the Vox Heritage AC15TV1L mahogany. They only made 500 in the mahogany and I think the wood enhances the tone (much like void free baltic birch in it's own way). It sounds like a million bucks both straight in raw and with pedals. It's great with humbuckers or single coils. I was in a band a while back and one of the guys played through one... I always thought his tone was awesome and after having this for a week, I'm pretty stoked. One input side runs an EF86 tube and the other is like the old top boost with the 3 12AX7s. Anyone here play out of one of these? How do you like it?
  4. I just bought one today ... probably shouldn't have but I knew some guy who had one of the limited edition mahogany cabinet AC15 and I found a minty one on ebay for $1200 shipped. That seems like a lot but man, something about that mahogany cab really makes it a nice sounding map. I actually have the AC30 mahogany dealy too, so I guess a pair of them will be nice.
  5. It seems to be a common thing with these cheap but good sounding practice maps. Does anyone have info on what fries on these and how to fix them? Basically, no output, tubes are all good. Slight output from the line jack.
  6. I mean, like if you wanted to play the Star Spangled Banner and was hoping someone up there would hear it, what amp would be good for that? I was thinking: A. A couple of 4-12 cabs pointed in the moon's general direction. B. A Hiwatt DR201 or some kind of bass power amp. C. A treble booster to get the highs to cut through the smog. D. Some kind of delay so the sound that naturally gets delayed will wrap it'self around and realign all the lost phase angles and stuff liek that. E. An octave pedal so that the highs that get sucked up in the heavily charged ion particles will be carried by the equal bass notes as they slowly die a horrible, HORRIBLE death I don't know, I'm out of ideas, but anyone else have suggestions?
  7. I'd like to mention the Heartbreaker, the Roadster head, the TA-15 and the mini Recto as well. I once had a Blue Angel which was like a non master EL84 or 6V6 switchable map and man, did that ever sound good. It was like SN 000000005 and covered in pure leather!
  8. $550 cash on the barrelhead. It's your chance to buy something like new that they don't make anymore. Loaded with Celestion something or other .... what do you want, black shadows or greenbacks?
  9. That's the hardest part for me, writing a song that doesn't sound like it was penned by some ba-foon Any ideas are appreciated.
  10. ... guess I would need some decent interface and workstation software. If I have to spend a year learning it or fighting problems all the way, I'm not going to be interested, so is there something that is proven to work well that is intuitive?
  11. Oh, only one huh? ... ok, gimmie the Yamaha, but make it snappy, I haven't got all day.
  12. I could really dig a Yamaha CS80 but too I'd like a Jupiter 8 or Prophet 10.
  13. Can I go first? Ok, so I bought this Nocaster Tele thing at a guitar show. It's like dead nuts original as the originals, and just playing a few chords on it is like hearing a fine piano play through your amp. I mean, I don't know how they do it, but it is one of the best sounding Tele sounds I've ever heard, with a perfect balance of ballsy bass and chimey highs. . It sustains so long that you really get tired of it because you are ready yesterday for the next note. The radius is 7.5" so that takes some getting used to, but it's the tone that we're talking about here. Thank you for reading this far, that will be all.
  14. Those were great amps. I had a Subway Rocket ... a similar amp. I wish I never sold it!
