I actually like the result I get from running a Rat into the hi gain channel of my Engl. Lots of low end and very nasty yet quite controlled and crisp. Been doing the fuzz into vintage/vintage-ish amps thing before that which sounded great in a way, but with my G tuning it was always kinda on the verge of going out of hand.

Right on, godgrinder I feel you.


And 311. The JMP thing was separate. That is my favourite tone I've actually played through. But it's a little impractical to have a cranked JMP 2203 all the time. hahaha.

So the rest was separate from that.

I re-discovered how the slamming bass of the Uberschall Twin Jet excels in Doom.

BTW, have you discovered how much the VH100R cuts in the mix? The RFT and Tungsram preamp tubes reduced some of the high Mids and increased the low Mids ... much darker tone and very nice with the K100s or Swamp Thangs.

On a side note. Saw Old Man Gloom a few weeks ago and got Aaron Turner to sign a few things for me. Gave him a promo tape of my band too.

(The live cd on the bottom right was signed when I saw Isis back in 2007).

Yeah. I ****ing love this amp, man.
I have a silly Mesa SPAX7-A in V1, then JJ's in the rest of it. It sounds great. I have zero beef. I kind of wish I could hear it with a 2x12. I might downsize to a 2x12 again, but at the same time I think I would miss my Mesa.

Thoughts?






Also, seeing Old Man Gloom would be doppeeeee.

Going 212, I'd go with EVM-12Ls. The low Mids and Lows won't distort if you wanted to emphasize them while keeping off your bassist's territory.

I ran a Traynor YBA200 (bass amp) + EVM-15L and a Diezel VH4 + 2 V30s and 2 T75s through a Radial BigShot ABY. Sludge, Doom, etc. ... sounded even more massive than the YBA + SLO.

That's where I got confused.


You have EL34s now. I can see the modern'ish part but I guess I always thought the Ultra was less modern than the XXX for example but now I see what you are saying I suppose.

I don't know....maybe a Splawn Quick Rod

v...clicky...v


I actually have 6L6's in it. Are they easily switchable to EL34s, and does the Ultra+ have a good mod market?

Nice, super keen for a solid state Sunn or Acoustic. Impossible to come across down here though.
