Can anybody tell me what kind of a difference I'd be geting going from 6l6s to el-34s? Also with some of the distortion modes seeming kinda thin for solos I'd like to maybe fatten them up, (would this be where I look for dark tubes like the JJs) how much was that JJ high gain tube set and was it dr...

I'm a DR owner, but I've noodled around with a few other amps in passing. IMHO, the only amp that sounds better to me is the Bogner Uberschall. However, my DR is close enough to not make it worth the difference in cash between the two heads. Please bear in mind that my DR is running EL-34's and THD ...

I'm also into the heavy stuff. The olderI get, the heavier I like it. I'm playing a unique blend of Modern, Hardcore, Punk, Progressive & Funk. I also am one of the Worship Leaders at my church. I lead a high energy worship service called "The Altarnator". We break out the heavy artillery for this e...

Rocktron Vertigo Vibe opinions, please

I don't really run effects in my rig. I'm very happy with the way my setup sounds dry. I'm really interested in going with a rotating speaker, but a lot of them really seem to be well out of my price range. I'm checking out the Rocktron Vertigo Vibe. What really interests me about this unit is the f...

It's good to hear that there are at least a few PRS fans here. Most of the forums I've cheked out have a lot of guys who are almost hostile to anyone who admits to being a PRS player. IMHO, what guitar a guy plays is a highly personal choice and does not open him to personal attack from anyone who d...

I was a huge Rush fan for the longest time during their most "progressive" stage. Then they appeared to have gone mainstream, and I lost interest. But my interest in them resurged a couple of years ago, and consequently my son got nteested them as well. "Rush in Rio" really made me remember why I lo...

I've been a bike rider most of my life. I seem to have settled down a bit since I hit my late 30's though. Now I ride a rolling Barcolounger. I have an '88 Honda GL1500 Goldwing.

I run the stock preamp tubes. But in the output section I'm running a pair of EH EL-34's and a pair of THD Yellowjackets. I did a lot of experimenting with tube configurations, but this one just happens to be the most pleasing. It really tightened up the bottom end and gave the top end a more vintag...
