    Has anyone ever used one of these? https://www.synergyamps.com/shop/heads/syn30/ Whenever I search for SLOs on Reverb, the first thing that pops up is Matt's selling a bunch of SLO preamp modules for it, like this...

    Are there any good alternatives out there to the Radial Headbone? https://www.radialeng.com/product/headbone-vt This thing does exactly what I want, but it's ugly as hell. I don't want to stare at that thing all the time. Dave and I were talking about it last night and he nailed it, he said...

    So, I recently (and by recently I mean this was a three month ordeal), bought a Diezel Zerrer preamp, I actually bought four, but this is the first one I actually saw physically. Apparently a bunch of retailers don't know what the fuck "In stock" means, it does not mean "You know, we don't know...

    https://www.guitarguitar.co.uk/randall/amps/ Fuck me I'm tempted by the 667. Not entirely sure it would give me something that my Mark IV couldn't do already though.

    So I've had tube amps for 5 years now. Don't get me wrong, they sound great. But I've recently found the sound of solid state amps much more satisfying for what I play, which is black metal. I've found that my 6505+ is just boring to play. I've been playing my Boss Katana MK II way more. I don't...

    My Engl Savage has been doing some weird stuff the past few months. Whenever I palm mute or hit low notes, something in the head itself buzzes. It sounds a lot like the transformer to me, but I'm not positive. The amp itself sounds fine, but when I'm tracking through a loadbox I can hear it...

    Both of my guitar amps are 150 watt and I love running them flat out, obviously this is rarely practical... or appreciated. :lol: This is more for me playing at home direct into my DAW so built in cab simulations aren't really needed as I've got some pretty decent IRs and am going to grab some...

    Week or so old but here it goes anyway, since Iron was expecting EVH Amps news :) EVH has announced new two amplifiers, the British-voiced 5150III 50W EL34 1x12 Combo and EVH 5150III 50W EL34 2x12 Combo. The 50-watt tube combo amps boast independent dual-concentric controls and three...

    Trying to get away from that ubiquitous OD808/TS808 sound. I mean I'm trying to get away from the whole "TS-boosted SLO circuit valve amp" thing anyway (5150, Rectos etc), since it's a hangover from my "metuhl!" days, born of sheer lack of experimentation since that time, and I feel like the...

    Not the whole thing, just the 40 seconds or so that starts 7:06 I just thought it was a cool observation. It goes some way to explain why people flat-out dismiss certain gear, amps and pickups especially, because it didn't react with their specific playing nuances, but rather than adjust to...

    I want to start getting debt paid off and work on being able to get into a bigger house for my wife and kids. Currently I have 5 different amps and for the amount of play time I get in (basically none) there's no way I can justify keeping all of them when I have other goals I am working towards...

    Ok so i need a bit of info. I have heard conflicting stories about valves. Some people tell me that the pre-amp valves last a year like the power tubes and others say the last nearly 10 years! Even youtube videos suggest this! So any clarification would be greatly welcome!
  16. Guitar: Gear Discussion
    Because I can, and I may as well before I end up having to get rid of most of them. :lol: Shot the video to basically have fun and see how they do at lower volumes (in short - they don't) but for your viewing pleasure is my MT15, 6505, Dual Rectifier, and Randall Satan. Don't judge the tones...

    Statement from Mike! "Hi Everyone! Since founding Soldano Custom Amplification 32 years ago, I’ve had to split my time between developing new products and operating a small business. I have reached a place in my life where I no longer wish to handle the business side of things and focus on...

    $850 for Dual Rectifier Rev G with footswitch (I think) and cover, $550 for 6505+ with footswitch. Jump on either of them?

    I was trying out some new Kemper profiles and I found one I really liked and instantly noticed how much "string scratch noise" it exceggerated compared to other profiles I've used previously. You know, when taking different chords and your fingers move across strings. During fast riffs its hard...
