  1. Another vote for X2 here.
  2. I wonder, do SS users carry spare transisters?
  3. DRRI Twin Reverb Fender Bassman PA (for acoustic).
  4. The timing on the announcement was good. Took every network off the Obama speech. If he woulda picked Mitt or somebody like Mitt the networks would have commented but not the massive coverage this will get all day. It's a brilliant move (timing wise) to steal the news cycle from the dems. This is the real reason why they are so angry and attacking her and McCain so strongly right now.
  5. It's a fine amp. It sounds better than almost any SS amp. It doesn't sound as good as most high-end tube amps. It's great for the price. My DRRI sounds much better. But you'd expect that.
  6. Twin reverb is an awesome amp. Just be sure you want something that loud. Are you gigging stadiums? If not, you might be happier with a DRRI.
  7. According to the article, Daniel is still missing. He was not one of the victims.
  8. i perfer the taste of {censored} Things go better with teh clam.
  9. I havn't read it, but I had to laugh when I saw it displayed at a bookstore recently, right next to Patty Boyd's autobiography.
  10. Gotta dissagree here. I've had a set of these for about 15 years. Bought from a demonstrator at the LA County Fair way back then. They were not called "Sham-Wow", but they are the same thing. They work as advertised.
  11. Those who said Vetta II are correct. For versatility, this amp cannot be matched.
  12. I recently purchased a Line 6 Variax 600 and Pod X3 Live. Dig 'em. I went to L6.com and downloaded Workbench, Gearbox, Monkey, drivers and Java Runtime Environment. I burned all these to cd-r and loaded them into the computer into which I'm running my signals. This computer doesn't have an internet connection. The Gearbox loaded and pulls up just fine. However, when I try to access Workbench, (one of the main reasons I bought all this stuff in the first place) all I get is an annoying 'can't find valid Java' type of message. My question is; Do I have to have an internet connection for drivers/firmware to use Workbench? I'm using an hp media center pc with a pentium 4 running at about 2.5 Ghz and 2gb of ram. Make sure you are using the JRE version of 1.5. You can download it here: http://java.sun.com/webapps/download/AutoDL?BundleId=12839 Workbench has a problem with the latest versions of the Java Runtime Environment.
  13. If I wanted a combo that did everything (but I don't), I'd take a good look at : http://www.egnateramps.com/Tourmaster4212.html I have no idea how it sounds myself, but I'd probably start here.
  14. peavey valveking combo I have one of those too. I won't slag the vk. It's a great amp on a tight budget, but the OP has more money and wants a worthy amp. DRRI. Go play one for yourself and make up your own mind. A/B it against the peavey classic 30 and decide for yourself. As for me, my tone search has ended with the DRRI. YMMV.
  15. For cleans, I don't think you can beat the DRRI. It sounds great dimed or driven with a TS808 too. The peavey classic 30 is a great amp for dirt, but it can't match the DRRI for cleans.
  16. Used DRRI is right in your wheelhouse. The go for about $600 on ebay. They sound awesome. New, they are now running $949.
  17. For cleans, Fender Deluxe Reverb Reissue (DRRI) or vintage.
  18. Video her encounters and put em up on the internet. It never goes away, unlike a bad credit score.

    NEW AMP!!!

    I recommend a peavey valveking 112. All tube, 50 watts, good cleans , decent distortion. It's a bit more money new, but used, well within your budget. I bought one for 250 on ebay in like new condition. Also in this range, peavey classic 30.
