    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...

    Anyone have one of these? Seems pretty versatile and looks like you can pick up a used one pretty cheap...

    I wanted to get a general consensus on posting a valve amp. There is a chap who wants me to post my ENGL savage to Puerto Rico from the UK. Whilst I'd normally have very little posting a posting a guitar over seas I have issues regarding a valve amp. Basically, I'm worried that I'd wrap it super...

    For the few Aussies on here, there's a guy who's doing a 2 day workshop on building and designing valve amps which includes building a 15w amp. I'm totally gonna jump on board as it's right around my birthday and building amps has been one of my highest priorities on my list of things to learn...

    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)...

    Anyone checked out the new VK2? It sounds pretty tasty, actually, and has a lot of features. I think it has potential with maybe a tubescreamer in front. Here are a few youtubes on it.

    Just put Tungsol EL34Bs in my pittbull CL, replacing some very slightly tired TAD STR 34Bs (which are now in my JVM, sounding much better than the JJs that were there, stupid harsh, bitty, grainy JJs) Dear. God. The tone goes on for fucking miles! That will be all, as you were.

    This sounds like a decent amp for sitting around the house practicing. This guy does really good demos and I love that Carvin.

    I have a peavey Valve King Stack. I heard that you can replace the peavey tubes with some differnt ones, you can get more gain/distortion. Is this true, and if so, what tubes do i need to get?

    Up for sale is a mint Vox AC4TV combo. This is a really fun little amp... very simple with a volume, tone, and an attenuator that can knock it from 4W to 1/4 of a watt. 4W Class A, 1x 12AX7 and 1x EL84, replaced a few months ago and with maybe 20 hours on them. I've used this for recording and...

    I'm not an expert on valves, this being my first amp of that sort, but when I turned on my amp the right hand poweramp valve popped flashed blue and after a short time the blue faded. Now I'm left with a crackling and an occasional popping noise which leads me to believe that that valve on its...

    The missus has said she's gonna see if she can buy me a poweramp for christmas now (she really needs to make her mind up, first an Engl, then a Peavey, now a poweramp) I'm looking for stuff like a Peavey Classic 50/50 or 60/60, or a Carvin TS100. Preferably around £350 tops. If anyone else has...
