I would only trust ratings when comparing speakers of the same brand.

That said, I own a pair of Swamp Thangs and I can tell you they are LOUD.

I have paired them with Celestion G12S-50s which...

I think dabbling in another genre is an excellent idea. Sometimes this gives you something new to learn and learning breeds a positive attitude. I'm getting a new guitar in a couple weeks for the...

To clarify, with this thread, I wasn't really talking about the "emotional" faces people sometimes make when they play.

With me it's more of a subtle mouth movement that I think probably has to do...

Thanks for the thoughts guys. I've actually been playing for quite a long time (20ish years), and played acoustic-only for the first few. That could be why I favor heavier strings.

To clarify, I...

Concerning string gauge and picking/playing dynamics...

I'm wondering if anybody else has this problem -- I literally can't walk into a guitar store and try a guitar -- effectively, anyway. The reason is the strings are too damn light!!! 99% of all...

^^Your amp is a clone of a 6505+ right? (I think I'm right).

Put JJ 5751s (or NOS JAN 5751 tubes if you can afford them -- JJs are only about $12 U.S. apiece and sound great) in both V1 and your...

Your preamp should not be anywhere near 7 with EMGs AND a boost. I run a similar setup except with a TS-9 as a boost and Seymour Duncan Blackouts (also active, like EMGs). In addition, I'm even...

I'm pretty sure NAG through Ashes of the Wake were Mesa Mark IVs, but you can get that sound out of a Mark V as well.

The main thing, as others have said, is that LOG does not use that much gain in...

All JJ tubes, for starters. 5751 in the PI position and also V1, 12ax7s everywhere else. ECC-803 in V1 also sounds awesome, although a little different from a 5751. A 5751 there sounds a little...

Upgraded with the right tubes, pedals, and speakers/cab, it will sound better than a stock 6505+ head and typical 6505 cab. But then again, an upgraded 6505+ 120 watt head might sound better yet. ...
