Deluxe Strat HSS or SSS for classic rock/punk/experimental?

Hi y'all, Just about to make a purchase on a second guitar. I play a lot of death metal in my band and have my ibanez locked to C standard. I end up renting a guitar when we decide to cover classic rock, punk..etc. Don't play much blues, mind you. I am playing out of a 2 channel dual rectifier with ...

What's your favourite Ibanez guitar for metal?

I own a s520ex. I know it's not the greatest guitar in the world, but it's been really good to me. I paid $1000 for it too! lol. I was in australia at the time and guitar gear over there is just ridiculously expensive, if you didn't know. I love the wizard neck and how thin it is, combined with the ...

Bogner vs Mesa 412 cab?

Just wondering what y'all that about using Bogner compared to Mesa cabs... I have a 2 channel dual rec and was wondering how the tonal qualities differ. Both are typically loaded with v30s, so I would guess it's just the cab construction? don't know much about Bogner stuff (only that it's expensive)...

FX Loop on a 2 Channel Rev G problems??

Jumping from my solid state marshall, where I would only play through the clean channel and have all my pedals up front, to playing on my Dual Rectifier Rev G has come with a few surprises. I bought a EHX Holy Grail Reverb pedal (already got rid of it) and had problems putting it in the loop. Feedba...

Is tube popping an indication that they need to be replaced?

I just replaced the power tubes in my 2 channel dual rectifier. This is the first time I've handled/replaced tubes. I replaced them brecause I thought that 6L6s would suit my style more than the EL34s that were in there, in addition t the fact that I haven't changed the tubes since I bought this amp...

What Revision is My 2 Channel Dual Rectifier Solo?

Supposedly one cannot answer this question just by the serial number on the amp.. which is R-015271, by the way. I've contacted Mesa and they say it was most likely made in the late 90s. It also has a detachable power chord, which would lead me to believe it's a Rev G... but I do not have a solo boo...
