    So long story short I got a killer deal on a new/mint Mesa 1x12 cab that will be coming in soon, so I’m looking for a lunchbox or mini head to pair with it to use at home. Need suggestions! And yes, JBA5150. Definitely considering a 6505 MH, just not sure if it’s the best option (probably is...

    Been listening to this since it came out. He doesn't sound like Chris Cornell all the time, but there are definitely moments when I'm like, "shit, I didn't know Chris Cornell sang for Diamond Head". Not early era Ultramega OK CC, which is his apex, Far Beyond the Wheel is legitimately one of the...

    I went down the rabbit hole a bit with this thing and it seems pretty damn sweet for $399. Is anyone else running one? I'm particularly interested in this setup here: I initially wanted it for the shared effects loop, but I didn't realize it gives you a shared input chain as well. So (for...

    Obvious out of the way, Phillips Head is a good choice, especially on mass produced guitars, because it's the most ubiquitous, everyone has a screwdriver that can handle it. But it blows my mind that everytime I go to get new neck mounting screws, phillips head is the only choice. I've never...

    Are there dangers to this? After the recent happenings with my Peavey, I've decided it might be good to get a backup for when something like this happens so I can play, but my cab is rated at 16 ohms and some heads of what I'm looking at only goes to 8 ohms, so would this mismatch be "safe?" For...

    9.5/10 condition. Everything works perfectly, even the screen that I did a shitty job taking a picture of. This thing kicks ass. I'm just moving to the rack version and don't need two of them. $1400 shipped.

    EDIT: @55:13, Rich Ward to Head: "I'd like to thank you personally because, because of your influence everyone went to music stores and sold their Les Pauls, and all of a sudden vintage Les Pauls cost $600" :rofl:

    Jokes aside, we all know Machine Head suck, and this revamped original lineup thing has been tried a million times by bands to regain popularity after years of a waning career, but.... you can't ignore how good this is. In terms of performance and production, I mean. It truly is very well done...

    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...

    So, I found this, which is pretty neat IMO, since you can have the cab and the head on the stand (that's what i'm looking for). I know there's the usual persian rug, but do you guys know any other stand like these / other option? https://www.guitar.co.uk/quiklok-bs625-heavy-duty-amp-stand#

    https://metalnation.com/robb-flynn-announces-via-facebook-the-rest-of-machine-head-has-quit-the-band/ The fact that this news is over 24hrs old and nobody's posted it yet just goes to show how fucking dull this band has got in recent years. Dude seems humble and self-reflecting about it to be...

    I had a tonebone one, but it produced massive high pitched microphonics when plugged into recording rig (the torpedo). However, I get the feeling this might have been due to using a step down transformer with it, and not a straight adapter. So, I kind of want another one, and have seen the...

    I often see the converted head and was wondering how does it compare?
