Re: TA30 owners...How do you like your amp??

i love mine! plenty loud for my purposes, more than enough for band practice or mic'd at a venue (even in 15 watt mode). i don't use it for its full versatility, but love the tone and portability. records nicely too, used it for these recordings (my guitar is panned right): http://reverbnation.com/l...

Band recordings with TA-30 head

Hi all, thought I'd share some recordings I did with my band using the TA-30 head. My guitar is panned right most of the time. http://reverbnation.com/lifeonimpact I used a fender usa strat w/ lace sensors through a Mesa TA-30 head and open-back compact 1x12", mic'd with an SM-57 off-axis about 2-3"...

Re: copywriting your music

Only a lawyer could give an official answer, but my understanding is that that would give you some degree of protection. I think you can copyright a compilation/album (naming separate songs) using the online system as long as the authorship is the same for all the songs. For data/time limits you'd h...

Re: TA-30 footswitch

Congrats! For leads I sometimes boost with an Xotic BB Preamp to add a bit of gain, volume and bottom (approximate settings: gain 11:00, volume 1:30, treble 10:00, bass 2:30) for thicker tone and more sustain

Re: Mic'd Tone Tinnier Than Cabinet Sound

All good suggestions so far. From my experience I like the sound when the mic is pointed at a spot about 1/2 way between the voice coil and the edge of the speaker, but angled so that the mic is perpendicular to the cone at that point (angled away from the voice coil). I've also found adding a large...

Re: copywriting your music

wow, that's steep.. you can copyright your music online directly with the U.S. Copyright office for $35. you just fill out the forms, upload your music, and pay uncle sam via plastic money (credit card). i did it with my last band, a little bit of navigating but pretty painless. http://www.copyright...

Re: First Impression Playing aTransatlantic TA-30 combo

thanks for the advice, it gave me the confidence to pick up a cheap compact 1x12 open back (albeit with a C90) and i'm really happy with the sound i'm getting. :mrgreen: i had been thinking about shelling out for a new thiele because i was worried about getting boxy or thin tones with the open back ...

Re: Need help playing live.

From your most recent posts (and the lack of any since then) it seems like you got things sorted out, but I just wanted to offer one more (probably obvious) piece of advice. When you are playing intros or parts with just one or two instruments, try rolling off your guitar volume a bit, that way they...

I second this, I heard recently that something like 70% of jobs are never posted. Connections are king

Re: Auditioning a new bass player tonight

My last band auditioned craigslist drummers for several months before we found someone decent, definitely feel your pain. Just keep at it and project the kind of energy you want to receive, hopefully the craigslist gods will have mercy upon you. I got really lucky with CL in the last two weeks.. I m...

Re: First Impression Playing aTransatlantic TA-30 combo

thanks for the review, i just got one too but don't have a cab yet. which of your cabs do you like the ta-30 best with? i'm pretty much limited to a 1x12, weighing the pros/cons of open vs closed back and different speakers
