    Hey guys - i'm currently looking around for a 50 watt head. I'm finding that i'm not really playing a lot of super high gain metal these days and this particular head is available thru one of my distributors, so the price is right. I've checked out some reviews and Youtube videos and it sounds...

    I read on the interwebs that some people have taken 2 power tubes out to reduce the wattage to 60 watts on their 120 watt heads. was just wondering if anyone has actually tried this and if so did it make any difference for home volumes ? I dont have a problem with the way it sounds now at full...

    With the new Star Wars movie almost upon us, it's worth reminding ourselves of the best metal'd up version of Star Wars music there is.

    So I've read much here on this forum about how the 5150 is the final destination amp for metal guitarists. Problem I have is even the 15 watt head would be too much for my needs. Have a music room with around 15 amps right now of various different makes, sizes and configurations. The 6505 has...

    RD1 Rob Chapman - Victory Amplifiers Interesting little amp. Knowing Chapman's history, he probably set out to get a better quality Tiny Terror, which is what this reminds me of. Sounds more Plexi-ish though than a TT. US selling price is $850, which isn't bad at all, given the cost of a...

    There had been a few rumours going around but it looks like positive grid finally made a bias amp head! 600 watts solid state by the looks of it. Could be pretty cool if priced right Edit. If this does the tone matching stuff it could almost be a near kemper alternative

    ... Is not a 5150 :lol: Long story short, my Laney VH100R is insanely loud and I can't get it to sound good at sane volumes so I'm thinking about selling it. I play in a cover band so I'm basically looking for something versatile with a good clean tone that can get dirty at playable volumes...

    Couldn't decide whether I wanted to let this go or the RG570. I think I'll stick with the plain old 570 for now. Most of you know this guitar but for those that don't. It's an alder Warmoth Soloist body that I finished myself. Not a pro finish by any means. It was just for me so I just did a...
