  1. Guitar: Gear Discussion
    Hey there folks, I acquired a bit of gear back in the summertime and I'm trying to get back into playing and geeking out over my gear more often than I have been and in the process I feel I've gotten rusty at hooking up my equipment. To get to the meat of the matter, I want to use my Pod HD500...

    I've been poking around for a 1U bass preamp and found this: They're quite reasonable too, only about $400. Anyone happen to own one? I wish the thing wasn't' such an eyesore but it certainly sounds good.

    Snagged a Sansamp PSA-1 preamp. I was skeptical, but racked it up today. Cranked it up through a 4x12. Sounds awesome. I haven't gone through all the presets yet. I picked one and tweaked it a bit, and let it rip. The preset I'm using reminds me of my Valvesonic Plexi. Stoked.

    Can I still join the party? :cool: After a long time, I finally managed to hunt down an early '97 TriAxis. Specifically a "non-phat Recto (TX4-D) model for those in the know. A rare beast (specially the EU voltage version) made from 93 to 97. Tubes on it are TAD 12AX7A-C. It's in a very...

    I've been in the market to upgrade my bass gear for awhile. The next item will be to upgrade to a better bass as I'm still playing a simple Ibanez SG. I've had good tones out of using it and either running it through guitar amps, multi-effect/preamp pedals, or straight to the board with a VST...

    https://soundcloud.com/maltese-fan/rocktron-gainiac-direct Snagged a Rocktron Gainiac for $100. Clip is recorded direct with NadIR and TPA-1. It's actually not too bad, reminds me of a JCM 800 a bit. I'm able to switch channels with the MS-3. Boosting it with an SD-1 for now.

    Diagramming up my 2020 Rig Build of Doom and I am likely to buy a piezo equipped guitar to go along with it. I have never used a piezo equipped guitar. Is there any good reason to run the piezo through a different preamp? I'd be thinking an acoustic preamp. Does anyone do this? It would add...

    Just received this mint condition Hafler T2 tube preamp. Sounds a little generic, but I'm going to keep it. recorded direct with NADiR and TPA-1.

    Just ordered a Rocktron Valvesonic Plexi tube preamp. They are being blown out for $300. They have a Blackface version as well.

    This was a nice surprise from my wife for Christmas. This little device is powerful! I honestly think the models on it are downright terrible, but the tone capture steals the show. It was a little finicky, as you have to select an amp model and try to get it close sonically before doing the tone...

    Got this little russian thing for cheap. It's a 3-Channel tube preamp with sooo many features packed into an enclosure only slightly bigger than a regular boss pedal. I've been rocking an AMT D2 live for a while and I wanted to try their tube offerings. Here are my findings! Mandatory pictures...

    I was a fan of the Carvin X100b amps and have owned two in the past. I need another 50-100w amp like I need a hole in the head, but the Carvin x1 pedal might fill a niche in my gear. It supposed to be the preamp section of an x100b in pedal form, with a few goodies like speaker emulated out and...

    VooDu Valve LTD Guitar Preamp - Rocktron - Technology for Guitarists Kinda interesting they re-released it, but it's a re-release of 1995 technology with no real updates other than the red face. I loved my Rocktron Chameleon for over a decade, but it's been over a decade since I played it, so...

    I have been playing guitar and buying gear since I was 12 years old (30 years). Maybe I am dumb as dog shit but what the fuck is the difference between a distortion pedal and all these new preamp pedals? Aren't they the same friggin thing?

    Hi All - New poster here. Looking forward to being a member. I have my 6505MH apart to do a cosmetic mod and figured I'd check the preamp tubes while I had the amp body out of the case. Oddly, it has one Ruby 12AX7 and two JJ ECC83S tubes from the factory. Has anybody else with a 6505MH...

    https://www.ebay.com/itm/Mesa-Boogie-Studio-Preamp-/332832187277 Sorry Kevin! I just stole this for $530, I hope you weren't the person who kept trying to outbid me :wub:

    The video editing is painful. Hope this works out for him.

    I finally grabbed a 500-series chassis (the Midas) and a pair of CAPI V28s. I've barely gotten a chance to check them out, so for now this is mostly aqn excuse to share a picture: So far though they seem cool - a surprisingly audibly different flavor than the BAE below them. They seem to...
