Re: What is your favorite guitar song?

"Castles Made of Sand" by Hendrix and SRV's cover of "Little Wing" are two songs I've heard so many times and am still floored every time I hear them.

Re: EL 34's

When I owned a Roadster, I dug the EL34's for distorted stuff and KT-77s for cleans.

Re: Strudio Preamp Lead Sound "fuzzy" ???

My Studio Pre is particular about settings and tubes.

If it's fuzzy, here are some suggestions that may help you out:
1) put a 5751s in V1, V2, and V3 to tame the gain
2) dial down the lead drive and volume
3) turn the EQ off
4) try some different pickups

Rock on,
Scott

Re: Now that the JP2C has been out a while...

How does the amount of compression compare between a Mark V and a JP2C?

Re: Carvin amps... what do you think??

I can't help you with Carvin amps other than what I've read in forums - which is usually quite positive regarding the Legacy and the X100Bs. Of all the guitarists I've known in my life,nobody ever owned a Carvin. I did want to respond to your luthier's comments about Mesa being terrible...Has he eve...

Re: Multiple preamps-What power amp?

The cheapest power amp I've seen with tube rectifiers is sold by Frenzel Amps in Texas. I've seen a couple boutique power amps with tube rectifiers from some boutique shops but they were out of my price range. Never heard of tube rectifiers on any mass-produced guitar power amp. An alternative appro...

Re: Custom Power Amp finally in the house!

I owned a Mesa 295 for a while. It was a great power amp. I liked it better than the 50/50 I used to play through. The 295 had more flavor to it. lol

I'm still playing through my custom power amp. I let my GAS chill out and finally been focusing on making music.

Re: Midrange mod on TA-15

I got rid of the TA-15. Missed it and picked another one up a while back but had to part with it for $ reasons. It's a great little amp for sure. One of my favorite Mesas.

Re: How old were you when you started playing guitar?

I was a 19-year-old college freshman who needed something to help pass the time in the afternoons. The summer before I turned 20 I purchased my first guitar. I'm 46 and still play to help pass the time.

Falling in Love Again

Am happy with my rack setup but saw a TA-15 for a good price on CL and snagged it. I forgot how good EL-84's can sound with a Strat.
