    Now, Ola be like "This is my 1972 Sears Cardboard Blown 312 (3 blown speakers and a torn paper plate duct taped into the 4th speaker hole)" and still get a great tone. But, there's clearly some strong differences here. Mesa FTW, especially that cab. :yarr:

    I recently got a Boss GT-100 board, and want to find a good combo amp I can run that through. I've been looking at the Fender Blues Junior IV 15w, Orange Crush Pro 60w and the Blackstar HT Club 40w MKII. Essentially, I am using the input and sticking with the clean channel 90% of the time and...

    Yes, the Axe FX using young dude bought an amp. Got myself a Revv Generator 100R Mk. III. The 100R is basically the Generator 120 (flagship amp) with just the Red channel. 120 has Purple and Red for high gain channels. The Red channel is more of the "Mesa" or "Recto" channel and honestly I...

    Thread title is shit but bear with me. I have a lot of preamps and a few power amps. Most preamps have a presence control built into them. For example, on my Axe-Fx, each preset has a presence setting. Same with my Triaxis, a JMP-1, etc etc. All these preamps have presence controls. Both of my...

    Hello Satans and Lucifiers, I need your help. I bought a Mooer Radar to try different speaker sounds. I tried to connect it to the Ranndal RX120D amplifier and Laney IRT 112 cab. But the sound is muddy, the Radar is probably not suitable for an amplifier + cab set. I understand that this is a...

    I picked this up last month in this thread here: https://www.metalguitarist.org/forum/guitar-gear-discussion/108256-ngd-radial-headbone-vt-amp-switcher.html It works perfectly and kicks ass. It's also ugly. Really ugly. Look at it. What the fuck, right? I ended up just saying fuck it and...

    https://www.radialeng.com/product/headbone-vt I picked this up today and it does exactly what it says on the label. :yesway: I have it connected to my 5150 and my Triaxis/2:90, and switching is instant. Both amps share my Recto 4x12 and the Two Notes Captor, so it has the added bonus of...

    ...featuring only quotations from its official manual. And no, I did not make those quotations up. Though I wish I had come up with the phrase "somewhat impervious to tonal thievery", that is actually what it says in the manual.

    So I did a couple of mods to the 5150 III recently that really make the amp quite a bit better. First off, I have yet to hear anyone that likes the stock blue channel on this amp, which is an absolute shame because all the other 5150 III heads have an amazing blue channel. It's come to light...

    Planning on selling some of my guitars to get a smaller sized tube head for metal with a 1x12 for lower volume playing in the house. Looking for recommendations under $1000. Below is what I've started looking at. I'd like it to sound heavy at lower volumes. Tight modern metalcore/deathcore...

    I created 4 profiles of my Randall LB103 Unholy Grail through 3 different cabinets using an SM57 about an inch from the cone. One cabinet (2X12) has a Vintage 30 and a LynchBack. The Marshall 1960A has G12T-75s, and a Crate Blue Voodoo BV412ST with Eminence 86-078-16 speakers. I recorded a...

    ML Sound Lab (mostly famous for good cab sims) recently launched a line of amp sims called the Amped series. I've been wanted a Mesa sim for a while, and ML's newest product is a Mark V sim called Amped ML5. It separately models all nine modes of a Mark V. I did their free trial and was...

    When I listen to these two vids, it's clear one amp sounds dramatically better than the other. But, how much does a Mesa 412 add over a Hesu 212? The guitars are similar enough, but one is also using a Cockblocker pedal, the other has the gate built in. Mics are both SM58 (for the most part)...

    Well Ive had the 120watt 6505+ head, Ive had the 20 watt MH with a 2x12. Just got the 6505+ 112 pretty happy so far. I have only ran it straight in to test it out with the built in reverb. But it definitely has the sound and its loud as fuck. Going to unwind from work and hook up my tube...

    Well after searching for months trying to find some transformers to build a 1u power amp I gave up as it was going to cost more for the transformers alone than just bloody buying one. Not arrived yet but here are some photos and a video from the listing. The video describes it far better than...

    Finishing up my headshell build for the VH-140C. Mostly on the final steps of fitting the top section and the bottom snugly together. I looked fucking everywhere for feet and handles out of heavy duty metal. Couldn't find any. Had to improvise with some heavy duty shit. As far as the...

    I don’t want to get into professional recording/mixing really - I just want to record my ideas/songs and share them, but still have them sound as good as possible. For bass tones/processing I’m going to be using Eurobass or Djinnbass - I love Ermin’s approach of just clicking it on and having a...
