Up on ebay is my Engl Fireball(was originally selling it only within my country(Spain) but I decided to make the auction available for EU bidders): http://cgi.ebay.es/ENGL-Fireball-E625-60W-Tube-amp-head_W0QQitemZ120415287002QQcmdZViewItemQQptZLH_DefaultDomain_186?hash=item120415287002&_trksid=p3286.c0.m14&_trkparms=72%3A1315|66%3A2|65%3A12|39%3A1|240%3A1318|301%3A1|293%3A1|294%3A50 Contact me through ebay if interested for shipping estimates/any other questions.
  6. The lesser amount of pots in your circuit, the less amount of DC resistance will be in the path from the pickup to the amp, therefore less treble is rolled off and attack feels much faster. Lack of any tone pot whatsoever gives it a (IMO) nice glassy transparent sound. I have a H-S charvel that came with that configuration(just 1 vol pot, nothing else) and the single sounded fine with it. But I'm upgrading the pot to a 1meg and changing the single to a HB-type pickup, as I want a little more bite out of the bridge pickup as it's very warm.
  7. I have a Sansamp GT-2 and want to use it with my Boss pedal adapter, daisy chained with my NS-2. Can I do this or does it require the tech 21/sansamp ac adapter? Just want to be sure, don't want to end burning it up because the polarity in the power jacks was different or something.
  8. Rather than just as a preamp? I bought one but haven't gotten it yet. Got it mainly for being able to play hooked up to any amp or mixer when I play out, but I figured I could put it to use at home by driving the front of my amp a bit as if it were an OD, or using the dirtier settings(ie: Calif) to get some dirty grit on the clean channel on my Fireball. Anyone do this?
  9. Sansamp GT-2! Can't wait to get this device, I've been wanting one for quite a while, I think it'll hold up very well at band jams. I was originally going to get a podxt but I felt it was costly and just don't need all that stuff, and the 2.0 didn't impress me at all. I used to have a trademark 30 and I loved how the thing sounded. Any love for tech 21/sansamp pre's like the gt-2 or tri-ac?
  10. Thanks. Btw, does the 2.0 also have balanced outs? And are balanced outs a bad idea if you're running it into the front end of an amp(without cab sims)?
  11. I'm considering getting a (bean) podxt for plugging straight into the mixer at my rehearsal place, and possibly as a back up for live situations, but the problem is that the mixer has only xlr ins and no 1/4". Is a DI box necessary to hook it up to the XLR plugs on the mixer so it gets the right impedance so that it doesn't end up sounding fizzy or harsh? Or are the outs on the XT already balanced so all I need to do is use a 1/4" to XLR adapter, like this? : http://store.a2zcable.com/ava122.html (also does it matter if the adapter is for stereo even though I'd be using just the mono output on the XT?) If I do need to use a DI box, does it cause any signal degradation?
  12. I'm thinking of picking up a keeley modded MT-2 to use at my rehearsal space as the amps we have access to there are pretty horrible. The amp I get to use (MG50DFX) is really not loud at all and can't cut through the drummer real well(at least not with it's own gain channel). I have a palmer pdi-09(pro DI box with cab simulation) and I was thinking of feeding the modded MT-2 through it as a preamp hooking up the xlr to the mixer, and sending the "thru" 1/4" straight to the amp so I can get a little more volume at band jams. Has anyone tried using dist pedals into a mixer with great success in a rehearsal situation? I just want a sound that cuts through very well, I can't stand virtually not being able to monitor myself. We might be using another rehearsal room at the place that have louder amps(2x12's, also MG's), so I think having the pedal could come in handy too. It would be the only thing I'd be using it for though, as my amp at home(fireball) needs no boost of any kind. Would be the keeley MT-2 be a wise investment, or should I shell a few more bucks out for a Sansamp GT-2 preamp/pedal? High gain is all I would be using it for, just need a sound that cuts and sounds good in a band situation, not just in my bedroom.
  13. I don't know much about bass gear but I've played a bass through that very same sansamp and was very pleased with the sound. You don't want a wall of fuzz playing metal, at least not if you're going to be playing fast/complex stuff. I don't like how distorted bass sounds with finger picking though.
  14. I play metal primarily, I love the early hard rock/proto metal stuff too but my main passion is complex dissonant brewtal stuffs. I play in a band along the lines of Demilich, Cryptopsy, Wormed... Got no pics of my gear but have a look at my sig. Outside of metal I don't really bother to learn other folks' songs(I can't be arsed to learn Pat Metheny or Paco de lucia, my 2 main guitar heroes), I just use what bits I pick up of theory to come up with my own stuff.
  15. If I remember correctly the GT2 did NOT have enough gain for a real brewtal metal sound. But once I switched it to a clean channel and fed it with a Boss HM-2 and some post EQ I got a direct tone similar to Autopsy's "Mental Funeral"... So I would suggest maybe the GT2 with some decent "metal" pedal in front of it.... As for the POD, I recall in general many people saying it sounds great on tape, but not so much live.... I had a tech 21 amp with have essentially the same preamp as a GT-2 and I thought it had plenty of gain, for me at least. I love uber dirty sounding bands like autopsy and repulsion but I don't like "wall o grind" type tones for my own playing Have you ever fed it into a mixer/PA in a band jam before? That's the issue I'm most concerned with, high definition/clarity in a band situation. I have an Engl Fireball for live use whenever that comes around.
  16. The amp I have to use at my band's jam space is pretty horrible and doesn't cut through at all with the volume on max with the rest of the band playing, and taking my amp to the place isn't an option, so I need a cheap but effective solution that I can hook up straight into the PA. In my price range I've narrowed it down to the Line 6 pod 2.0 and the Tech 21 Sansamp GT-2. No need for an XT or x3, just too much stuff I don't need. The KEELEY modded MT-2 is also an option if anyone has used it straight into a mixer with success. It's also worth mentioning that I play in BEADF#B. I only need a decent high gain sound(I play extreme metal) with a lot of presence(not fizz) and mids that will cut. All the high gain rhythm sounds I've heard from a 2.0 sound muddy to me, they don't sound like they'd work well in a band situation. Which sounds better straight into a PA? Please answer if you've used them in the same situation, it doesn't matter to me how they sound for recording as it obviously needs to sound way different in a band situation. Thanks.
  17. Oh yeah I forgot Randalls, what other high end SS amps are out there?
  18. What the title says. What are some of the greatest SS amps ever made, particularly ones that sport a nice distorted channels? I can only think of the newer Tech 21 amps(which ain't expensive at all) and then the old Roland JC's and of course the Ampeg VH/SS series. What are some other high end/high quality SS amps?
  19. Hey there, got any pictures of the Peavey Bandit? Is it made in China or one of the old USA ones? Also got any pics of the first 3 electrics on the list? Thanks.
