  1. Guitar: Gear Discussion
    Hey guys! I love my 5150 III 50W EL34 but I'm aware that there's some controversy regarding the blue channel. I personally dig the blue channel as it reminds me of an amp like a Soldano or a little bit of Recto. Fuzzy and loose and not as tight as the 6L6 blue channel. I haven't played a 6L6...

    Emil Westin (shredmaster in Rocka Rollas/Blazon Stone) made a Periphery cover recently, check it out! :smoking: Here's an older video showing some crazy stuff

    So the rhythm/clean channel of my IRT Studio is suddenly very quiet (like I have to turn the volume to 10 to hear anything). However, the lead channel works perfectly I tried swapping tubes back and forth, but that didn't change anything. Any ideas what it could be and if it could be something...
  4. Guitar: Tech, Electronics and DIY
    So I recently learned about the Fortin 33, which seems to be an unobtainable/ridiculously overpriced TC Spark :lol: One thing I dig about it though, is the ability to run a control out and switch amp channels with it. I'm wondering if it is easy to just mod an overdrive pedal to do this. For...

    This guy does awesome walk-throughs of repairs to amps. His Roadster and Bass 400 ones are particularly interesting. I'd never dig this deep into the amps myself, but it's fascinating to watch.

    Maybe because it was in pieces for 2+ years, but the 5150 won't switch channels. As in, it'll switch if i hold in the button, but then when i release it just goes back to the green channel. Not a massive problem as the green crunch channel with a tube screamer is a weapon of mass destruciton and...

    This video was recommended to me by youtube This video is on the creation of a drum sound that caught on in the 80s Looking at their other videos it looks very interesting. Looks like they analyze music in depth.
  8. Amps & Gear For Sale / Trade / Wanted
    Band split up, some pedals need to go. All pedals shipping from AUSTRIA, shipping costs and paypal fees not included. I may be interested in trades, but there aren't many things I need...Digitech Freqout = guaranteed deal for me. Some obscure fuzzes or gnarly distortions or overdives may be...

    Boosted the Crunch channel of my 6505+ with a Joyo Vintage OD. Sounded great. Anybody know of a mod to get more gain on the Crunch channel so I don't have to boost it?

    Okay, I recently posted a thread about my amp having some issues: http://www.metalguitarist.org/forum/guitar-tech-electronics-and-diy/79497-swapping-preamp-tubes-mini-head.html At that time I thought it was the preamp tube on the drive channel. I swapped the tube and the drive channel still...

    Seems like 2017 is "upgrade your gear" year for me. It's time for getting a new amp, and there are so much awesome choices these days that I'm a bit lost after using the same amp for +10 years. Most of my current live playing is my cover band. We play all kinds of crap, so I'd appreciate...
  12. Guitar: Gear Discussion
    I need to get my live rig up and running soon because The Storyteller has some of that coming this summer. But I am completely noob about pedalboards and shit like that. I've never used different channels before, only distortion :flex: I want: 1. Rhythm sound (RED channel) 2. Solo sound (RED...

    I know someone was just discussing these recently (couldn't find it). A buddy wants to simplify his pedalboard with a switcher/fx-loops, and knowing how finicky the Recto switching jacks are, I keep shooting him down on possible products :lol: So far, he's looking here: JOYO PXL-PRO Effect...

    Well since I saw Kyng in concert I have been fiending for a 2 channel Rev G dual, his tone was so good that it reminded me how good those old 2 channel Rev G's sound. Well it seems everyone from GC to Ebay has been inflating the prices on these lately and posting for $1099+ and they are not...

    I went to Rick Graham's YouTube channel, and he has this video set as the one that plays on his home page. I had no idea he used to be overweight. I must have only seen recent videos. This is pretty nuts, and figured some of you fitness guys might dig this.

    A friend of mine showed me these guys tonight. I've watched loads of their videos, and it's all just absolutely brilliant. They've had various lineups, with the guitarist being the only consistent member, but everyone who plays with them is insane. The cool thing is, unlike most of these sorts...

    So I've spent some time with the XTC and am loving it. It's pulling everything I need from it tonally and I'm fucking loving the blue channel. Started working on a new song for a side project I'm hoping to start soon and figured I'd get berated for posting a clip since I've not really done it...

    Hi fellow forum geeks, A couple of months ago I got back from Guitar Candy (little shop with INCREADIBLE equipment in Belgium) with... ... another amp. God knows what I do with all of my amps, but I couldn't resist, as this truly is the most impressive piece of engineering in amp world I...
