I got the guy to go down to $425 for the JSX combo we agreed on it last night, he has emailed me today though asking if I would rather have the stock speakers. He also mentioned that the Celestion is a 30 watt as Dave mc pointed out and he said that I would have to watch the bass at louder volumes..

Should I take the stock speakers or these so called uprgraded speakers??? He claimed that the new speakers are substantially lighter which is a big plus for me not to mention if it will be better tone. I don't wanna buy this amp and have the ****in thing blow up me ether though..

edit: Scumback H75 and Celestion G12H30 are the replaced speakers in it currently.

Maybe I'm just misunderstanding what people mean by "harsh" when talking about highs.

None the less, I thought the WGS V30 sounded really good even compared to the Celestion offering, and considering its price point... I think we have a winner.

Keep in mind the WGS V30 isn't a straight clone
They actually tamed some of the ice pick highs the V30 is known for

Why not both? Also, the H75 is a 30w speaker as well IIRC.

^^ It depends. Depending on how much legwork you're willing to do, maybe you could sell the g12h30 and get a higher wattage speaker to combine with the scumback and save a bit of money (versus taking the stock speakers and having to replace both).

EDIT: ^ good spot, i missed that. I think you're right, the 75 refers to the resonance/model name (75Hz i.e. not the one with the bass cone) rather than the wattage.

How has this guy been playing this amp like this?? If you use the power switch to run the amp at half power is 2 30w speakers okay?? Sorry I don't even really understand the basics of this stuff.

Ran at 60W with 30W speakers, each speaker will see 30W
So it's theoretically ok, but amps can put out more watts than spec'd.
I wouldn't run it too loud with them in it.

The speaker rating is the maximum continuous dissipation, running the amp at a max wattage of 60 would be very unlikely to ever cause those speakers to fail, even if it was cranked.

^ yeah especially if they're one of the more conservatively-rated ones, like (most) celestions. Not sure how conservatively-rated scumbacks are, but if they're pretty straight clones, probably reasonably.

if he was running it at half power it's probably ok.

even full power if he kept the volume very low it's probably ok.

How junky are Affinity Telecasters on a scale from 1 to 10? What is a good price for one used?



Got a guy offering one and cash to trade for my Excelsior.

Not terrible. Definitely workable. I wouldn't pay more than $80 for one though.

Yeah 80 is around the ballpark I was thinking. Thanks.

Hi everyone,

Just bought Roland Micro Cube GX online and will receive it in next week.

Did a lot of research and finally decided to go with this one, then after I placed my order I read a comment on one of the guitar related websites I don't remember which, the guy was saying that this amp sounds better when connect to the AC adapter than when it's battery powered.

I can't seem to find where I read that comment from, I tried to find it so I can show you guys but I just can't find it anymore

What I'm trying to figure out is for those of you who own this amp, do you notice the difference when it's powered by battery and when it's powered by AC adapter? I ask this because my situation only allows me to use this amp with batteries (it's hard to explain the reason why, I would have to provide details lol), I would feel bad if this thing does sound better when powered by AC adapter since I will only be using this with batteries, at least 95% of the time, and it means I'm using something without getting the most out of it, I hate that

I know I can wait and test it myself but I can't wait any longer, I would really appreciate it if someone can answer this

If anything, the amp might sound better when running on batteries.

Maybe the guy's batteries were a bit old and tired.

I'll take your word for it, you're a sound designer lol
Yea it's odd that the guy says that because reading all the comments and he was the only one saying something like that...
How was your experience with this amp BTW?
Would AA rechargeable batteries fit since they're fatter?
Thank you!!!

I'm not that much of a sound designer anymore, but thanks still

I've never played that amp myself, my answer was just out of thinking - current coming from a wall wart might be "dirty" and cause buzz, but batteries simply don't do that.
Also using old/used batteries is the recipe for having something not working as it should, and that applies to pedals, amps, TV remotes...

I really have no idea what batteries that amp works with either, sorry

Hello. I am using an EBMM JP6 (John Petrucci signature) model with the piezo pickup. I would like to ask how exactly can I make a stereo cable work to achieve even volume on the piezo and the magnetic pickups. I'm using a standard mono cable on the mono jack (the higher one) and whenever I switch to piezo mode, the volume drops significantly.
I have tried a stereo cable and I can't produce any sound whatsoever (neither with the magnetic nor with the piezo pickups). Should I buy something else apart from the cable or am I missing something? I am using a Mesa Boogie Mark IV amp, if that helps.

The JSX speakers are quite heavy and are rated 75W. If you ever want to try the stock speakers, I have some from a JSX cab.
