  1. Depending how old the instrument is, Music Drive [A Sumer Korea brand] might be the manufacturer...but the logo is not a match...the Martin Dixon Guitars logo is not a match either, neither is the Michael Dolsey logo...could you post a pic of the whole guitar?
  2. In the situation described, I would check the output transformer, and any discrete components between the power tubes and the OT. What is the impedance of the cabinet you are blowing through? IIRC the 100H is a 16ohm out. If you are in a mismatch, that could cause the volume drop as well....and could damage the OT.... Out of curiosity, are you plugged straight in, using the effects loop, using pedals in front...?
  3. not ignorant...you don't ignore information...
  4. friends don't let friends buy Behringer...
  5. Ignosce, quid dicis?
  6. latin...history...Julius Caesar...veni, vidi, vici [i came, I saw, I conquered] sorry, too esoteric?
  7. Aside from them naming it after you...how do they justify the price? I mean, any price point over $20 is going to turn off most weekend warriors...and bands on the road trying to eke out enough money to stay ahead. But $195? It is a gimmick and designed for the small room gig...so how could they believe their price was going to not be a deal killer? From their website: Increase your tips 3-4X per show. He pays for himself after a couple of gigs, which is more than we can say for your drummer!! I can't believe they did any serious market research... I can't remember the last time we saw tips over $40 a night...which would be at least five to 6 gigs... I mean, yeah, it is a cute idea, to be sure, but the price and the fact that it has to run on AC [no battery option? ] is another major drawback...do I run this off a spare daisy chain cable in my pedal board? I think they need to go figure out how to make this a much lower cost unit...and make battery operation an option. As it stands, this player/bandleader says NO SALE! Suggestion #1...ditch the multicolor leds...who cares? If anything, it will be a distraction from the show onstage.
  8. okay, small room? TURN DOWN! So now you are aware there are different kinds of 'feedback', as noted, but there are all sort of ways to prevent it, control it, or create it...and a limiter or a noise gate will NOT solve the problem, they will just make the guitar sound...well...worse. So what;s the guitar, what are the pickups, what are the settings, how far away from the amp is he standing, which way is he facing....
  9. he hasn't been back...maybe he did the basics on the Squier and got a better amp...
  10. well, you're only a year and a half late with that suggestion...
  11. I'm guessing that was likely a 'made for' amplifier. Good possibility this was made by Valco, as I have seen similar 'scooped panel' designs before, but need more pics...I know, you can't upload more yet. A pic of the back, speaker and chassis might help...
  12. Feedback is happening to tell you something is wrong with how you are doing things...heed the feedback! Easy answers....don't face the amp when playing, turn the guitar volume pots to about 7, turn the guitar tone knobs to about 7, ...there are so many variables...this is not a 'fix it with a box' thing, this is a 'learn your amp and your instrument' thing...also, half stacks are not good in small rooms with low ceilings....try it outdoors and see if it feeds back....when the cops come, be apologetic....
  13. Okay, I'm certainly not an expert on Ibanez RG series guitars, but shouldn't the serial number be on the neck plate, not on the head stock? The only late 80s USA made ones I've seen had the serial # on the plate, then again they had a H-S-S config with a selector, not a single p-up. Like this one on Reverb: https://reverb.com/item/999991-rare-...-760-dark-grey Does the seller have any provenance, like an original sales slip? Frankly, if you have misgivings that research and/or the seller can't resolve, I suggest you pass on the deal.
  14. can't wait to see if he wants to mod that for more output too...
  15. a little...Dia's instruments were manufactured by Matsumoku, one of the notable Japanese Instrument manufacturers during the 70s. I have seen mainly P-Bass copies by Dia, never a Lester...I would bet it plays and sounds pretty good. Many well regarded labels came out of the Matsomoku factory. Your bass looks very much like the mid 70s Greco Les Paul 'Lawsuit' copy....and it also has some obvious similarities to the Univox Les Paul Copies of the era, which were also made by Matsumoku [plus Aria, Vox, Greco, Epiphone, Maestro (under Norlin),Yamaha, Ibanez, Elektra...and Dia.]
  16. its not the amp, but the cabinet that would be wired series or parallel. IIRC the 5150 has selectable impedance from 4 to 16 ohms; your 4x12 cabinet is likely 16ohms, which can be easily verified with an ohm-meter.
  17. We actually looked at and tested the BLX2 when they came out as a low cost entry to wireless mic/no snake stage...but the mics were not great vocal mics; they didn't seem to have the range of even a SM58, and they share the same basic cartridge. After that I noticed that most of the end users who liked the mics were using them for speaking purposes, which is far less demanding. So they may work fine for your needs, just not for singing.
  18. Bengs...stop paying incompetent people to modify your guitars...this has ultimately led to nothing but issues, and yet you keep doing it. I get that there is a sound in your head you are looking for, but modding, unless you can do it yourself, or you can find an actually competent professional guitar tech is not the way to go. Buy a guitar that you like the sound of and LEAVE IT ALONE.
  19. he'd just take it to his 'luthier' to have it modded for more output....
  20. Another product designed to prevent something happening that rarely happens...and as far as the 'psychological damage' claims, only psychologically damaged people play guitar in the first place....
  21. Okay, listening to the remix...sorry, dude, pitchy...as hell...and the only time I get any kind of real acceptable vocal is when you really let go and open up...the talking thing with tremolo is not working for you either. Do you have a vocal coach or a singing teacher? If not, GET ONE.
