    https://www.darkglass.com/microtubes-900v2/ https://www.darkglass.com/alphaomega-900/ Darkglass seems to have a stride for releasing something new every 5 minutes. Really cool additions.

    I was thinking of picking up something simple like a jet city jca20h or whatever the hell the current version is, or whatever the similar egnater is. I remember the HT5 being pretty kicking too. As much as I want to spring on a JP2C that shit is not happening right now. I know the minimarks are...

    A Google search is bringing up all sorts of lists but it's always the same 5. Is that really all there is? I'm talking in the 5-15watt range. Not interested in creating a metal rig. Already got a full-fat one of those. I want a rock rig at best. This is in continuation of my accumulation of...

    Since Im getting back into the Metal guitar scene Id like to hear some opinions from fellow Metals Heads on what kind of strings they are using. I think the nickel wound sound the best but thats just me. I just use standard tuning so Ernie Ball Super Slinky aer my go to strings. My tuning -...

    I found myself watching videos of Marshall Lead 12 heads and the MG100. To be honest they sound pretty good. I can see some pros..... I mean cheap, lighter, no worries of tube failure. So it got me wondering do you guys have any fav SS heads? I have a Frankenstein Marshall Lead 12 that needs...

    Okay so I have a 6505+ and Jet City JCA50H. I like both of those heads but the more I think about it, the more I think a Marshall is what I am looking for given that I enjoy 70s and 80s hard rock and metal. So I started looking at videos and kijiji listings. JCM 800 seems pretty awesome...

    Do you have a percentage of msrp that you look at for a used bogner, friedman, soldano. Let's assume good condition and recent model...... so not a model that has been replaced by a newer model.

    So a while back I bought a bass. I was planning on getting the Tech 21 Sansamp so that I could plug the bass into my Scarlet 2i4 and then into a DAW probably Reaper. This is probably the cheapest solution. I notice there are a lot of choices when I google bass pre amp di. IF I go that route...

    I need a mesa in my life. Any of you that have played both or are fairly knowledgeable of them, please feel free to provide your opinions. I want something that can get a good modern metal tone, be somewhat versatile between clean and dirty tones, and provide both a good sound at both bedroom...

    Well I gotta say I had been eying a HDM 100 that was going for 550 on zzounds.com but it sold. So my question is this..... which JC amps give you that soldano SLO overdrive sound? Doesn't have to be 100W it just so happened that looked like a great deal on a b stock amp. Soldano amps are just...

    So in another thread I've been looking at buying a used 5150/6505. Many people are asking for 700+ in my area. Looking around I see some Mesa Dual Rectifiers in the 800 dollar range. From my understanding it is a more versatile amp. Would that perhaps be a better purchase to kill two birds...

    I was thinking of grabbing a head somewhere down the line to run in addition to my Axe, but I'd like it to be midi so I can set it all up to switch at the same time in a live situation, as in starting up a couple of projects and aspire to be playing out maybe 6~ months down the line, when I'd...

    Stumbled upon these two modders and watched a few youtube videoes. What intrigues me the most is that they mod 5150s/6550s and from what I have seen in the videos it sounds pretty good. Has anyone tried it in person?

Ben graciously agreed to engage me in a recorded head-cutting session (enacted via email across the Atlantic) on this track, which features his solos panned to the right speaker and...

    I've decided to get myself a Randall RD45 Diavlo head and will be getting either a 1x12 or 2x12 cab to go with it. However, I really don't know what to look for when it comes to matching head wattage versus speaker wattage. I know I have to match the speakers ohms to the right output on the...

    Glad I found this place. I'm a 44 year old die hard metal head and I've been playing off and on for about 30 years. Which looking back kinda sucks cuz if I didn't keep starting/ stopping I'd probably be able to play most of what I like listening to...:mad: ah well... here's to meeting good metal...

    Hi Everyone, Ed here In NY. I'm new to posting but been browsing the site for a few months, well, since I retired from building street rods. Now that my sons are out and on their own, I can take my Plexi out of the closet and take the blanket off! I'm keeping my car shop, just added wood tools...

    Hi there. I currently own one 1x12 that I use at home, wired normally to my SigX. But I am thinking to get my old head back and have 2 heads wired to 1 cab. I do not want to play both at the same time, I just want an easy solution that would avoid me going behind the amp and having to switch...
