  2. The circuitry has been the same since Jesus was in diapers. I've owned about 7 or 8 C30s. Killer amp. Except the guy who mentioned "metal" ... I don't think you thought that one through, or you're listening to a different kind of metal than I've ever heard.
  3. If you still have the Laney when I get my play-money built back up we'll definitely talk.
  4. A bump from Greensboro. The Laney is essentially a head version of my old LC-50 combo ... exact same circuitry and a killer amp. I miss the hell outa mine.
  5. Nice Laney combo. I've missed my LC-50 ever since she left me. The TTs totally rock. With 6L6s it has one of the warmest, deepest cleans I've ever heard. And the gain channel is awesome hot-rodded British.
  6. Yes. With the cab, or without.
  7. def dont get anything with v30's. You need a darker sounding cab for those laneys. Whats your price range? Agreed. I have tried every speaker under the sun with my Laney and the Eminence Stonehenge and Tonker sounded way better than anything else, including Vintage 30s and Emi Governors (V30 inspired). A warm, round Brit speaker worked best, imho. Perhaps a pair of those new "Green Beret" speakers? Anything with an old worn Greenie vibe would work nicely. Even a Peavey Sheffield from a 5150 combo was nice with the Laney.
  8. For sale or trade locally, and will travel to meet ... Almost new Ceriatone DC30 and 2x12 Celection V30 cab. The Ceriatone DC30 is Nik's clone of the Matchless HC30 (I think), and is an EL-84 based circuit switchable between 15 and 30 watts, and with an additional EF86 on channel 2 which increaes the gain as the channel is cranked (on 15 watt mode the cranked amp is GORGEOUS! The cab is a closed-back Vintage 30 loaded box with matching orange tolex. The builder is a forum member and has been very gracious answering quesitons about it, and I'm sure he would be for the new owner, as well. Looking for $900 for head and cab (OBO), or trade for a higher-end 1x12 tube combo such as Laney LC-50 or VC-30, Mesa F50 or DC5 or Nomad 55, or similar. May be open to other trades, but it needs to be local, within reasonable drive-to-meet distance of Greensboro, NC.

  10. Hiya, did you go to Eric Lindsey's in Catford - great shop that, I've bought there for years. I rang shops all around the London area and only about 2 had them in stock. In the end, I found one in a drum shop in Battersea (don't ask me why). I also tried out the LC15r and it wasn't as sweet as the VC. In terms of construction, not flimsy at all - solid, grille protector for the tubes etc - all the stuff Peavey didn't offer. Cheers Yeah ... that was it. Lindsey's place. At the time I was planning to move to Lewisham and was trying to either pare down my gear, or sell it all and buy in London. Shipping costs for the truckload of crap I had last yuear would have been horrid. As it turns out ... I married the most beautiful lady in the world right here in greensboro and stayed put. Love the city though. I'd move to London in a heartbeat.
  11. Wasn't there a band of kids in the midwest posing as supposedly Amish farmers raised from the dead that put on a show similar to an Amish version of Gwar? I seem to recall their name being Amish Armageddon, but I can't really remember. Anyone heard of them?
  12. Lewishham ... I found that odd, as well. When I was in London last year (Catford) I went to a few music stores, including the one in Lewisham (Peavey, Trace Elliot, and Laney dealer) and I never saw a single Laney tube amp. Weird.
  13. I'd love to score another LC-50. I friggin love this amp. It's like the pair of Bad Monkeys I gigged with so long because nothing ever bested them. Since I piced up the LC-50 a couple years bac I've been though a couple Mesa halfstacks and combos, my beloved Classic 30s, a Ceriatone DC30 (Matchless clone), and a JCM combo and nothing has come close for classic rock, southern rock, and blues gigs. One of the deepest, warmest clean channels this side of a Mesa F-50/100 ... nails SRV when driven with a Bad Monkey or the TS mode of a MojoDrive ... and an awesome thumping Drive channel that does everything from old Bad Company to Molly Hatchet to Van Halen to Stone Temple Pilots. Laney builds one {censored} of an amp. If I found a second used LC-50 in any condition I'd trade my Ceriatone for it straight up.
  14. I honestly thought the Bad Monkey was as good with the F-50 as anything else. Even better than many pedals costing three or four times as much.

    Lovekraft Mojo Drive

    One-stop shopping. There isn't anything I can't do with the MojoDrive and a Bad Monkey. And it does it cleanly, with little noise, with transparency, and no tone suck. Never harsh ... never too bright nor too dark. I played the same two pedals for six years while trying almost every hyped OD under the sun. The MojoDrive does it all ... for me. And the fact that it's only $140 for the Stealth model makes it a no-brainer. It's a steal! I'm going to get a second MojoDrive, or possibly a Chupacabra, to stack with it so I don't have to bend down to change modes and levels so often during a show, and I'm sure I'll be playing this combination for another six or seven years. Excellent pedal ... amazing value.
  16. Is this still available? Any interest in a trade for a modded ac-30 cc1 with alninco gold in it? Actually, I own this now, with the matching 2x12 V30 cab. It's pretty sweet, too.
  17. So you did get it sent to me the other day? Hi Kevin, I just saw this today. Yeah ... sent it out last Tuesday, a week ago now. I assume it made it ok? Looking forward to hearing it.
  18. I have used an old classic Morley for years, and I liked it way better than the old CryBaby or Vox pedals. Very beefy tone for a wah. It doesn't thin out the sound and there's not a lot of tone suck with it in the chain, as with the CryBaby. If I could find a way to trigger it like a CryBaby or better yet .. the Weeping Demon ... it'd be perfect. Having to step on the switch and then start rocking it is a PITA.
  19. I've been using a DigiTech DigiDelay (happily) for about five or six years. I initially purchased it because I needed slap-back, long delay in stereo, and chorus, and I could get all three in one pedal. It has been a good run. But I've recently noticed that when it is engaged I get a hollow sounding artifact ... a sort of roaring ... that doesn't really matter at gig volumes, but I don't want it crapping out in the middle of a show. And I must assume this will get worse. I get the noise when it's in front of the amp, when it's in the loop, when it's by itself, and regardless of where I put it in my chain. My chain, when used in front of an amp (I go back and forth on the loop ) is ... DigiDelay -> Morely Wah -> Bad Monkey -> MojoDrive ... and I've had this sound with my Mesa F-50, my Laney LC-50, and my Ceriatone DC-30. Anyone else has this start happening? Any suggestions about fixing it? Is it just worn out? What's the alternative? A Visual Sound H2O?
  20. I think the Monkey compresses more with some amps than others, and this can be perceived many different ways. On my class A amp it compresses a lot, and that's my only gripe with it, really. I thought you meant tone sucking with the Monkey off. Hopefully the Spank'd Monkey will help the compression.
