    The eagle has landed. Ok, so I don't have any pics or clips yet, and I know: :worth: ...but, it's officially here and I pick it up tomorrow (because I have too much to do tonight to go get it). Pics and clips of metal madness to come within a couple of days... :metal:

    Got a problem with my amp and I need some help. Alright it had been a week since I've turned the amp on. Busy at work and the like. I turn it on an hour or so ago and no sound. Check the cables and everything is still plugged in how it should be with the right cables. But here's how I have...

    In a bit I'm running into town to check out a used Mesa F-50 1x12 combo. It's going for about $650(going to offer less, of course :D). It's got the cover, footswitch, etc. I've been searching for something small and portable for recording and gigs. Since we always play where the sound is more...

    I just scored myself a Triaxis a couple of days ago and it's forced some rethinking upon me to do with both what gear I (should) have and how best to use it. At present, I use: JMP-1 Triaxis Marshall EL34 50/50 G-Major Korg DTR-1000 Sennheiser wireless Marshall 1960B Now, I love the idea of...

    Yes, for those of you familiar with the saga, I've finally fixed my 2:100. FOr those not familiar, I bought it from Jason via sevenstring.org about 2.5 years ago. I had been "functionally adjusted" by UPS, resulting in a complete set of busted power tubes, four knackered control pots and...

    Can't believe I'm listing this so soon after picking it up, but I just stumbled across the Bogner Alchemist and I've got some serious GAS! If I could afford to keep the Mesa I would, but alas I am a poor college student and that's simply not possible. This amp was too much for me anyway-I'm...

    ... for a Rectoverb combo. :dio: Here's the story: About a week ago I put my Mesa on craigslist to see what type of response I'd get, and yesterday I got a trade offer for a RoV. I agreed to throw in some cash in the deal, but apparently the guy just had it retubed with Mesa tubes and had a new...

    Well, I've been putting this off for a while, but the sad reality is that I don't play this amp anymore, and I can't justify leaving a pro-quality tube rig sitting in the hall outside my bedroom and gathering dust. I've reviewed/raved about this thing elsewhere so I'll keep it pretty short on...

    I posted this over at the Boogie board and didn't get a response, so I thought I'd try here. I have two different amps I use, a Mesa 50/50 and a Mesa 2:90. Both sound absolutely amazing through my good ol' Mesa 4x12 recto cab. When the tubes are new in the power amps, the cab has all the...

    Looking for an F-50 head especially, but will take an F-30 head or either combo if the deal is right. Basically just bored with my Nomad, and I want something simpler with a prettier clean channel :)

    Since there are not many vids out there of the Axe-Fx doing anything resembling high gain we took it upon ourselves to do a direct A/B through the same cab and whatnot as the tube amp it was modeling so you guys could hear the difference. The rectoverb is a very cool amp (sounds usable at lower...

    Probably one of the cleanest 1995 Tremoverbs out there, everyone who's see it think it's absolutely brand new. It's one of the models with a black tweed grill instead of the more usual diamond plate, so it's a bit more subtle than a regular Dual Rec. The Tremoverbs are apparently voiced with a...

    Well, i've been talking up this amp for a while. I first tried one out a few years ago and loved the simplicity of the controls, the fantastic cleans, gritty Channel 2 and the fantastic near-Recto "chunk" i was able to get with the Contour mode kicked in. But since i'm mostly using modeling, i...

    I want to start playing with a small tube amp. I have heard about these small 1x12" tube amps from Mesa and was just thrilled when I saw a few of them going on ebay for like $400. So has anyone tried them out? I went to Mesa in Hollywood and unfortunately they didn't have any small combo amps...

    It's time to let this amp go, it's in good condition but it's old and it's been gigged alot, works great and sounds wonderful, it's just not doing what I need at the moment. I'm asking $1200 plus shipping CONUS For references my eBay username is mwt88 I'll get pics up as soon as I can, any...
