  1. Amps & Gear For Sale / Trade / Wanted
    In 1986 the Grand Inquisitor of Tone (Who is the hereditary ruler of a shadow organization devoted to high gain amps and not just something I made up for this listing.) foresaw the downfall of tubes after insufflating the bark of a tree found in the Amazon rain forest in a sweat lodge with a...
  2. Guitar: Instrument Discussion
    So... I've searched but couldn't find any discussion on this. Isn't a passive pickup with an active preamp basically the same thing as an active pickup? Except that the preamp circuitry isn't sealed in the pickup? :scratch: For example, would a low output ceramic pickup sound like an EMG 81...

  4. Guitar: Pickups Discussion
    Bassist in my band is looking to pimp out his bass a bit. He's got an LTD D6. What do you guys think would be more beneficial, swapping out the preamp or swapping out the pickups? I know this is a bit of a broad question, but bear with me. He's looking specifically for EMG's. What do you guys...

    looks like Laney have released another variant on the ironheart. this seems to be just a preamp pedal with 2 12ax7s and can be used as a reamp device. It looks kind of interesting, and is pretty affordable - £199. I'll be much interest to hear what other people do with one of this if it can...

    Do you guys recommend anything in particular from stock? I'm not sure whether this is an intentional difference on the reborn rectos to the previous model(s) but the gain seems to be awfully inactive until you get up to around 2-3 o'clock, which is ridiculously high (this is unboosted, though)...
  7. Music: Recording Studio
    Hi, I am fairly new to the world of recording and on the advice of others bought a Presonus AudioBox (the alternative being a Focusrite 2i4). It came bundled with a DAW and is great for what I want to do which is You Tube video performances. The downside is I cannot seem to bypass the preamp...

    Earthquaker Devices Arrows Preamp Booster: I am intrigued by this pedal, but how does this work? Is this just a dumbed down compressor or what? I really like it's transparency and the life it brings to the sound. Hmmmmm:scratch: I'm thinking this will sound great with my Fender Supersonic.
  9. Music: Other Instruments
    Working on getting a recording room setup in my house to work on some tunes this coming winter and the one piece of gear I don't have is a bass amp or DI box. I've been checking out YouTube video of the different DI/pre/pedals out there and was wondering what everyones opinion is on the best...

    Madison Divinity III and Engl e530 for sale. I'm located in Adelaide, Australia so it wouldn't be worth shipping these outside of the country. Both are in excellent condition. Both run on American Voltage but included in the sale is the step up/down voltage converter to safely run them both...

    Older ENGL preamp, closer to the older Straight amps than anything modern made by ENGL, great preamp. Aesthetic condition is as pictured. Some rack rash, shown here in highly unflattering flash photography highlighting my greasy fingerprints, but overall pretty good. Functionally perfect...

    Link to the website and article about it. Not sure how I feel about this. From what I seen and heard I don't expect much out of it. Doesn't sound great in the video and seems to be gimmicky, it's just a pre-amp but they have no details on a matching power amp. Prices are supposed to be pretty...

    So I have the 6505+ Head, and its great. Was wondering if anyone knows what the Pre-amp output is used for? Is it Unbalanced or is it balanced? Is it used to send another signal to ANOTHER head? :metal:

    This is my first posting besides the intro. I recently purchased a Tech 21 Power Engine 60. I also have a S7 guitar on order and from Jim's initial estimate, I should see it sometime toward the end of October or sometime in November. I'm having covered bare knuckle aftermath 7's put in. My...

    FS: Mullard Reissue 12ax7 Preamp Tubes FS: two of the Russian Mullard Reissue 12ax7 preamp tubes. They have a nicely less bright and darker tone than most current production 12ax7s, such as JJs. Very low hours--bought as spares and played only long enough to make sure they worked and were...

    FS: four NOS RFT 12ax7 preamp tubes. Made in East Germany. They have a crunchy tone with early breakup for a great high-gain sound when used in the V1 position. These were bought two years ago from a top-notch NOS tube store. They've barely been used at all--played only enough to make sure...

    Since I've been delving into the world of bass more lately, I've been thinking about better ways to get some tones out of my 8100 and 5150ii for the bass. They sound alright, but are really flabby and don't hold up too well for recording bass, so I started looking at preamps. So far, I've found...
