Newbie (1/14)



  1. To each's own. For its price, I would still choose a vintage Twin Reverb, a Marshall Plexi, a Marshall JCM800 and a Roadster... all used. They can cover all the tones of a Herbert. Scalable Volume is not much an issue for me. But the Herbie is still great in itself.
  2. have you tried switching from 100K value to 200K value pots? Any difference?
  3. Fulltone - ICAR clone with more durability? Hot Potz II - modern design and I dunno how it can affect my Jen's tone What else? I really like that "Love Boat" sweep which is so sweet. I don't like the taper to sound like a modern wah (although the circuit/inductor has more to do than the pot alone.)
  4. I just seem to go nuts for retro effects equipment nowadays. But some people tell me, why do you need to buy (and maintain) an echoplex if an Ibanez DE7 or Dano DE1 can do the job just as good? Is there any reasonable purpose of owning real tape echo units?

    Hiwatt Lead 50R

    I have been playing for more than 16 years and I play a lot of blues-influenced rock, fusion, and in my early days I played a lot of metal. I do recording for a living and I own several amps namely a Randall RM100 MTS head with 6 different modules, a Fender Bassman 135, a 1974 Marshall Super Bass Plexi, and have gone through a Mesa DC2, a Fender Stage 185 and Laney LC50. If this amp got lost, I'd most definitely buy another one. Or if funding allows, I'd go for a DR504. This amp is like a DR504 + extras. Cool Hiwatt facade too. Nothing to regret about buying this amp. I just wish the Lead Channel was voiced more organically...

  7. I'm beginning to think that my V848 sucks big time, but I would be happy if the originals suck as well as how the V848 does. Anyway, what's your opinion, to those who own or have tried the original Clyde McCoy?
  8. Should I ditch my V848 since I am expecting a near mint vintage Jen Super Crybaby in the mail? Or at least tell everyone I'm gonna sell my V848 Clyde McCoy wah? Or are they two different beasts?
  9. They only thing I've found it didn't do well is Funk, other than that it's an awesome awesome wah. What? You mean it doesn't have that 70s porn sweep? For Disco and Motown funk?
  10. I love Hendrix-y wah tones. I love Zappa's wah tones in "I am The Slime". I like Kirk Hammett's wah tone. I like John Petrucci's wah tone on "Voices". I'm more interested in a very vocal sweep, that doesn't sound harsh in the toe-down position. I like using humbuckers and single coils hence I need a wah that can compensate for that. I also like a wah that can do well in clean, crunch, and high gain. I think I am describing a perfect wah.
  11. I've been asking this for quite a while and it seems there are less people who own both. Can anyone tell me the difference? What breaks up earlier? What has more classic vibe best for cranking?
  12. Now how can DSD compare in getting that WARMTH we all take about? Would the more number of samples enable more sidebands in the spectra of the reproduced signals, hence making it more capable of emulating TAPE WARMTH?
