Stiletto Deuce Stage II head and cab for sale

A job loss means I have to sell off all my gear. :( So the Stiletto Deuce has to go along with the 2x12" Stiletto cab. This amp was played lightly off and on for a year and is pretty much in mint condition. I am the original owner and took care of it. I replaced the pre-amp tubes with tubes from Dou...

Re: Standard Recto 2x12 vs Roadster 2x12

I would also include the Roadking 2x12 to try out as well, I bet it would sound killer with a Roadster. The Roadking 2x12 has a divider board in the middle separating the interior into two tone chambers. The closed back side has a V30 and the other side has a porthole cut out in the back with a C90...

Road King II head for sale - Mint

It's sad, but I need to downsize. My Road King II head is awesome and versatile, but I need to lighten my load. I bought this RKII one year ago through Guitar Center (I waited 4 months for MB to build and deliver it so it was fresh from the factory) and I have taken good care of it. It's pretty much...

Re: Road King II Series II Questions...

That sounds awesome. I cannot imagine this amp not doing it all. Anyone out there know how close this amp gets to the TOV gain sound? I loved that recto. I have to tell ya. I own a Stiletto Deuce II and a Road King II and the first one I'd part with would be the Road King. Look, I actually like the...

Re: Differences of 2x12 cabs

the Roadster & Stiletto cabs are the same, except for a different color piping around the grill. I could see someone hearing a difference though depending on how broken in the speakers are from one cab to the other. Not true... the Roadster cab has a more open sound where as the stiletto cab sounds...

Re:

If only it had a good reverb... ;) (Easily handled by a Lee Jackson Mr Springy BTW... I have a VerbZilla by Line 6 in the loop and I think it's pretty awesome for Reverb. You're right, I wish the Stiletto had reverb built in. Only downside to the amp (and maybe it's brightness, but different pre-am...

Re: Differences of 2x12 cabs

My favorite cab by far is the Road King cab 2x12 (never tried the 4x12). I always play both speakers, but you can play one or the other. I have two RK cabs and love using them for not only my RKII, but my Stiletto and Marshall too. I wish I owned three of them! I've owned the recto cab and felt it w...

I have to say my favorite cab is the Road King cab. I have two 2x12s and I play my Marshall and RKII through them, even my Stiletto Deuce II. I haven't found a better cab to my ears. I've tried recto and stiletto cabs and an Avatar (I even tried the RK speakers inside the Avatar), but none compare t...

I used to hate my Stiletto Deuce stage 2. It was thin and had too much treble. I didn't realize I had a preamp tube problem until the thinness gradually turned into a volume drop of almost nothing. :( A full preamp retube (from Doug's Tubes) fixed everything and now I love it! :D I still turn the tr...

Sounds to me like you guys need to retube. Specifically the pre-amp tubes. I had the same exact problem with my Stiletto Deuce. Volume dropped to almost nothing with fx loop or spongy vs bold, and sometimes would be unbearably loud. I ordered a complete set of preamp tubes (from Doug's Tubes) and no...

Re: Dual amps Stiletto and Road King

I never said the Road King was thin. I said the Stiletto was thin. The Road King is fat, but I can't achieve a good plexi-tone from it. The Stilleto is high and plexi-like, but annoyed me with high piercing tone. It needed some low end help, IMO. Running them together, they seemed to cover for each ...

Dual amps Stiletto and Road King

I struggled to get good tone from either my Road King or my Stiletto Deuce, which seemed to be bit too high and thin for me. I retubed the Stiletto which helped, but I still not quite what I wanted. So, I wondered what they'd be like together. So I used my chorus pedal to split the signal and send i...

Choices with RK

Doing an A/B test between a recto and a RK cab, I found the recto cab was definitely boomy and muddy compared to the RK cab which seemed more defined and "tighter" but still had bottom end for chugs. I returned the recto cab after a few days back and forth. It's personal preference, of course, but i...

WT?

:shock: Are you f'ing kidding me? No question, get version II. BTW, the RK cab is by far the best cab I've personally played thru. I've had a traditional, a recto, and an Avatar. I stick to RK cabs even for use with other amps like Marshall. Very flexible and kicks butt. I put the same speakers in m...
