Re: Celestian Creambacks

I'm very happy with the bias mod. I think it fattened things up and took some of the edge off of the top end. I will say though, the stock Stiletto always worked well for me in a cranked up two guitar rock band setting. Right now I'm set up with the mod, Scumback speakers and 6CA7 power tubes. I'm r...

Re: Celestian Creambacks

I have Scumbacks in my 2 x 12 Recto cab that I really love but I still have a 2 x 12 Stiletto cab that has the original V30s. I'm debating swapping them out for some more Scumbacks or trying the Creambacks. I bet they would a good match for this amp.

Celestian Creambacks

Has anyone tried the Creamback speakers with their Stiletto? I'm curious to hear how they worked out compared to the V30s that come stock in Mesa cabinets.

Re: N.A.D. Stiletto Ace head with a Port City OS 2X12 cab

That's a great rig you have there. I agree with everything you said concerning the right and wrong speaker choices for the Stiletto.

Re: Overdrive pedal for ACE?

I've had a BB Preamp and a Timmy on my board for over a year now. I like both of them with my Deuce.

Re: Thoughts on Doug's Tubes

Tube rectifiers and the Spongy setting were two features that attracted me to the Stiletto. Once I became an owner though and started to gig with it I found that I preferred using the Bold and diode settings for the same reasons you described. Obviously a personal preference thing. I still like havi...

Re: stiletto ace 2x12 tube question

Did you re bias with the JJ power tubes, or do they run ok straight in? The 6ca7 tube is from the EL34 family so they work fine straight up. If you have a stock Stiletto it has a fixed bias anyway. Just let your tube supplier know that you have a Stiletto so that you can get tubes rated to work wit...

Re: stiletto ace 2x12 tube question

I was running the Mullard EL34 reissues for years in my Deuce and was really happy with them. Not too long ago I dropped a set of JJ 6ca7 tube in my amp and wow! Think I might stick with them for a while. For preamp tubes I've got the Doug's Tubes Rock/Hard Rock tube kit plugged in. I always keep go...

Re: Discovered April Wine ... Wow

Another cool Canadian rocker from the mid to late seventies is Pat Travers. He put out some great albums like 'Makin' Magic', 'Putting it Straight' and 'Heat in the Street'. Actually, he is still making some good blues music now days but I love his old rock stuff. If you like April Wine you may want...
