    Planning on selling some of my guitars to get a smaller sized tube head for metal with a 1x12 for lower volume playing in the house. Looking for recommendations under $1000. Below is what I've started looking at. I'd like it to sound heavy at lower volumes. Tight modern metalcore/deathcore...

    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...

    So I've had tube amps for 5 years now. Don't get me wrong, they sound great. But I've recently found the sound of solid state amps much more satisfying for what I play, which is black metal. I've found that my 6505+ is just boring to play. I've been playing my Boss Katana MK II way more. I don't...

    It's been a while since I said farewell to VST plugins because, there are like 20 more of them every month. I feel modellers are completely wasted on me since I only end up using like 4 tones and I can load FX in the DAW anyway. So I'm looking for a "just buy a 5150 preamp edition". :lol: It...

    So, this was blasted all over my internetz yesterday. Boss Waza Tube Amp Expander It got me wondering, what do y'all think is the best piece of tech for getting the full roar tube amp tone at bedroom volume? I remember when the old Marshall Power Brake came out and loved the idea of that...

    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...

    Hey guys - So, I turned on my Lone Star this evening and the 10W setting produces no sound. 50W and 100W are just fine. It was working last night and tonight it's not. Everything sounds fine in the 50/100 settings. UPDATE: Nevermind. You guys are so goddamn great I could hear you in my...

    I had a tonebone one, but it produced massive high pitched microphonics when plugged into recording rig (the torpedo). However, I get the feeling this might have been due to using a step down transformer with it, and not a straight adapter. So, I kind of want another one, and have seen the...

    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...

    been debating selling my 300 watt tube works head. Its hard to find many like mine to gauge a price on. Mine has nice tweed tolex, most the ones Ive seen were carpeted and lower wattage. Ive found the bass head which is 300watts but not any guitar amps. Mine has 300 watts on the back, and its...

    Hey guys, my Randall Satan is almost a couple years old and I'm wanting to swap out the stock 6L6 and KT88 tubes that came with it. I'm looking at a pair of Tung Sol 6L6GC and a pair of Tung Sol KT120 but wasn't sure if there were some other options to consider. This is my first tube head (other...

    I found this super-clean Piranha on eBay last week for a screaming deal and just had to snag it. I haven't played one in about 15 years and remember really digging it back then. I also realized there are next to no threads on the internet with settings for this thing, so I'm going to post a...

    Afternoon, guys. My Laney Ironheart 60H is acting up. Truth is, it's been headed this way for a month or two, now. Every so often, I'll get a really decent hum or buzz going - usually after the head has been on a while. Then, it'll suddenly start feeding back a little. I can reproduce the...

    First lets order a fucking ton of parts. This was $20 shipped from Tayda electronics with a 15% off code I found on their facebook page, took a hot minute to get here, but its all in nice little baggies and was super cheap. Now lets put the cart before the horse and start marking out how...

    I got my Ampeg SVT-II Pro back from Dave Ryan, former SLM Ampeg builder, lucky enough that he still lives in St. Louis and works at a shop called Killer Vintage. We went through it, replacing all missing screws, tightened down the transformers that were loose, touched up some loose solder...

    So, I'm looking for an all-tube head to use for different styles (traditional jazz to pop, blues, funk, rock and even prog metal). Preferable smaller size and lower wattage (about 20-40 Watt). So fay I had my eyes on a Mesa Mark V:25, but I realize there are other options that might cost only...
