Re: Andy Timmons Lonestar Tone Test Clips

I've been thinking of picking up a recorder like the Zoom. I thought it sounded great.
Thanks for posting.

Re: No sound from my JCM 800 combo. HELP! (Please)

What can I say. It's a Marshall. When my friend gave me his Vintage Modern, I didn't realize the "Detail" pot wasn't working properly until the more I fiddled with it and tried to get it dialed in. Then I turned the chassis over and realized the pot itself was loose inside the assembly (not a cold ...

Re: No sound from my JCM 800 combo. HELP! (Please)

So, I got home, set the amp up. Power light glows. Still no sound. I plugged it into a 4x12 cab, still no sound. I took out the fuses *again*. They looked fine. I put them back in, switched the stand-by, and......Glorious JCM 800 Crunch! WTF?! :x I can only assume that one of the fuses was loose, an...

No sound from my JCM 800 combo. HELP! (Please)

Hi. A friend gave me a JCM 800 Combo (212, 50 watt, 2 channels). Not sure how old, (early 90's?). It's worked since I got it about a year ago. I haven't really used it much, just in the basement. I use a different amp in my band. The last time I used it, about 2 weeks ago, it sounded fine. I decided...

Re: Lonestar: Is it for me?

Well, it works for me! :D I have a Lonestar Classic 1 x 12 w/ V30. -Lance You put a V30 in the 1x12 ope Back cab? How does it sound? Are you able to use the 100-watt setting or do you have to tweed mode/50watt setting it? I bought it used last September, and it was already in it. When I tried it ou...

Re: Lonestar: Is it for me?

I've recently been looking into the Lonestar series. I've been playing modern/progressive rock/blues. I've been using my rackmounted Rectifier. Just wondered if the Lonestars would be worth getting rid of the Recto for. I've been debating on either getting a Lonestar, keeping the Recto, or getting ...

Re: Lone Star Reeder Mod #1: Channel 2 Pot-Swap

I got the Reeder mod done. My (much more mechanically inclined) friend did it & foot switchable gain in about 45 minutes. I have only had about 15 minutes to play the amp since, but my first reaction is WOW! It Truly is identical to Channel one. What I didn't expect (but should have) was that there ...

Re: 2x12 versus 1x12 in a lonestar special

I have a V1 LSC, 1x12 with a Celestian V30. It came w/ the amp when I bought it. (I am the second owner.) As far as I know, I do not have the Reeder Mod. I really like channel two. It's hard to imagine this amp sounding better than it already does. All of these speakers are great suggestions, it com...

Re: Lonestars need guitars, let's see em!

Nice group Lance! I see a Flying V on the wall. How many guitars do you have? Thanks plan-x! I've got 14 or 15 of them. (I try to make up for my lack of skills by acquiring gear :wink: ) I'll have to take a couple more pics and post them. That is a Flying V on the wall. Gibson Faded series w/ cresc...

Re: Lonestar 10/50/100 switching issue

I posted this reply in a different footswitch thread, but I meant to post it here. Maybe this is the problem. When I bought my LSC (used), the channel switch would act really goofy. It would switch occasionally when I used it, and sometimes the channel would switch when I hit the solo switch. I had ...

Re: Do you use or like your tweed switch?

I keep it on the Tweed setting almost all the time. I keep channel 1 on the 50w setting and channel 2 on 100. I know, seems a little backwards from conventional settings, but I love how the clean channel is just about to break up (using a PRS McCarty with the coils split 80% of the time) and how tig...
