Goddamn Billy Hyde Music, I was going to buy a little giant last week, but the Little giant head wasn't working(bet someone turned it on while not connected to cab). I put a deposit in and they'd order it in straight away from the wholesaler. They said it would in on friday, I've rang each day each of their replies are "Ugh, Im not sure, it will be in tomorrow". Grr, the hell that they care about customer satisfaction. Atleast tell me that its not going to be in at an accurate date. I mean they know how to restock things supposedly. been waiting for more than a week now.

/Rant


I was want to play the goddamn amp already and also open those boxes...

silly hats, it will definitely be worth the wait, I know it feels like forever waiting for your new baby. Be sure to crank that sucker though.


That video is a little reminder of what that amp can do.

^Proof that 100-watt heads are overrated. It's 1-watt and it's driving eight freaking speakers.

Seriously thinking about getting a Lil' Giant. Very small, bedroom practice space though. Afraid that it will be too loud for that area. Would this work well with an attenuator? If so, which one would be best?

Thanks.

From what I've seen it will be great for bedroom or you can mic it at gigs. I'll have mine tomorrow so i'll get back to you then.

I would appreciate the feedback on how loud it truly is and if an attenuator would help me out without losing the overdriven quality.

I was looking at the Lil' Giant or Handsome Devil, but I think the Handsome Devil may be too much for my needs. I have only been playing for 6 months so I don't want the whole neighborhood hearing my mistakes.

good OP AlfWTF - and we needed a BH thread




I got mine in 2010 and sold the cab to a fellow UG'r but still have the 1w head. Here is mine


-------------------------------------------
I just got a 1w Killer Ant. It has a 12AX7 for both power and preamp and I replaced the V1 preamp tube with a JJ and made a great difference.

Here's mine, along with some other pr0n










I also have a clip called Sloppy Slide Blues

Just scored a Blackheart Lil' Giant and BH112 cab from eBay for $260 and stated in *mint* condition with free shipping. I am hoping it is truly in mint condition seeing that is pretty much a $90 savings.

nice buy
you should try searching for the bitmo mod it gives you 3 different voicings.

IMO, the LG is too loud for bedroom playing. Its a loud amp. Loud enough to hang with a drummer. 5 watts tube and 5 watts SS are two totally different experiences. Bedroom levels are just about completely clean.

Some of the more popular mods from different sites around the net:

-Tube swap: The stock Chinese tubes have to go. Try a 12AT7. They sound a little smoother to my ears. Stick with the 12AX7 if you need a heavier gain.

-Output transformer: The first mod you should do IMO. Tightens up the lows and smooths out the highs. Chords also ring out a little clearer. The Hammond 125ESE is a great, inexpensive OT. I've also read great things about the Doberman 20 watt SE OT.

-Tone stack mod: Replaces the tone stack pots and caps with different values. Gives you a much more usable tone stack. The exact values escape me, google it, the info's out there.

-Replace C2: Use a silver mica cap. Try a 390pf or a 500pf.

I forgot to mention the Triple Bypass. I know its in the official mods, but I thought I'd give my thoughts on it. Its a nice mod that gives you some on the fly versatility, I wouldn't say it actually gives you three distinct voicings though. More like three slightly different gain settings. I think you could probably achieve the same effect by tweaking the volume and tone stack. I don't have two amps to do an A/B though. Part of the kit is a mica cap for C2, so don't do that mod if you plan on buying this.

Hey, can I get some opinions of the Handsome Devil? I was thinking of getting one as a good British-voiced offset to my Fender, how Marshally can a HD get?

the HD can be a LITTLE bit marshally if you have a good OD (ts-9),a tube change and can be better if you did some bitmo mods on it (the 10uator i think is good).

Hmm...well, I do have a TS9 actually, so that's not a problem. I'm actually looking at an old Marshall cab from 2004 on the local Craigslist for $175 I was planning to run it through, how well would that work?
