    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...

    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...

    Hi all, I'm just getting back into metal after 30 years in other styles and ran across a steal of a deal on a used Mesa Dual Rec Road King series 1. Just wanted to get the opinion of folks on the forum of whether this will be capable of a nice heavy sound. Thanks in advance for any insight.

    Hey dudes, haven't been active in a while but I wanted to share this with you all. Whole bunch has happened since I last posted; graduated college, got a job as a quality control engineer at a steel mill, moved to Ohio, got a cat, bought a car; but anyway. I had an old Peavey practice amp that...

    Mesa Boogie Fillmore 25 Guitar Amplifier | MESA/Boogie® I'm in. I love the 50, but this is smaller and cheaper. I'm cheap, so........:D I'll be getting in the standard Jeff issue black tolex with gold grille.

    Well I finally have a 5150. Does that mean im becoming an old man now? and I know this technically isnt a "block letter" since it has eddie's signature and it is a "script letter," but I normally refer to the Mark I 5150 as the "block letter." So Story Time: I got the itch for a 5150 and put...

    I want to set up my combo so that the leads going to the speakers can be disconnected from the speaker terminals and connected to a female 1/4" jack. Said 1/4" jack would accept the speaker cable coming from the cabinet. I have plenty of spare deans connectors, solder and an iron so I was...

    I went to the guitar shop today and decided to get another Blackstar amp. I'm going to either get the 40 watt combo or the 40 watt head and get either a marshall or blackatar 1x10 cab or get a cheaper 4x12 cab by b-52 or line 6....now the combo has 2 5 inch speakers in it.So my decision is going...

    Title says it all. Looking for a combo amp, something that doesn't sound completely shitty. That's the number one concern. It would be nice if I could record with it and get some better tones than garage band offers. Bluetooth would be cool, but not a must. My budget is aboot ₽500 Canadian rubles

    I've had my RGD for almost a year now and haven't got around to using it in a full mix yet so I messed around with a song idea to see what it sounded like. I used Positive Grid Bias FX for the guitar tone, Superior Drummer for the drums, DI bass with a bunch of shit in the signal chain and Ozone...

    I was considering getting one of these for high gain fun, I've owned the combo but never touched the MH. I was curious which one you guys would choose or recommend - I know each has pros/cons, and while this is just for home use currently (live in a house at the moment but may be moving to...

    The 6505+ combo is my first tube amp and I love it. I have found that it is very loud. So much that I can't even get the master volume over 1 and barely at that. What is loudest anyone has had theirs cranked up to? If I didn't have neighbors I'd blast the hell out of it and hope I don't blow the...

    Had a Bugera 6262 2x12 laying around that I bought years ago at GC on clearance, was too cheap to pass on. Never really gets played, mostly because of the open back with shitty speakers, and it weighs a friggin ton. I was regretting having bought it, I realized should have put more $$$...

    Hey Guys. I've been playing for over 10 years and been in and out of a couple small-time bands, but this is my first real shot at metal. It's always been my favorite style to play, but I have never done much live performing with metal. I was wondering what setup everyone uses for playing...

    Hey I got some tubes to replace for my 6505+ 112 combo, I'm suppose to put this Tung-sol in slot 1 and the Sovtek in slot 5, but I don't know which is which, I can only find this diagram fro 6505+ 120w version, which shows the 5 preamp tubes and which way the power tubes are. But in the combo...

    First brand new guitar I've bought since 2007... which was, oddly enough, another Schecter. This is the relaunched Blackjack line. Thinner necks, ebony boards, subtle inlays, all black hardware, Duncan Nazgul/Sentient combo. Want to remove the Vol/Vol/Tone with the pull on the tone and replace...

    Well my new to me 5150 combo just doesnt sound as good as the other 13 or 14 ive owned. Its VERY shrill and ear piercingly bright. It also has nowhere near the low end the other 5150 combos ive had. Its also SUPER fizzy sounding in the hi's and i cant get a good balance of treble no matter how...
