So I sold the ol' Traynor YCV50Blue cause I saw this deal I couldn't pass up....



A peavey Transtube 258EFX! I got if for $1000 (CDN), and thought it was such a great deal. It must have some special tubes or something, that make it worth this much... but damn it's awesome!


But I also got this other amp.... it's alright I guess. It has a seperate "cabinet" for speakers, which is just plain annoying, and I need to run a cable between this "cabinet" of speakers, and this amplifier? WOW NOT FUN.
It has this rattling noise at the back, something is moving around... long glass cylinders or something. I don't know why they are there. Here is a pic...

It's also huge... and got this cool chrome front though... check it out...

Hey, you can see my drums!

The entire family:


It sounds great.... I'll be changing the cab though, since I only got it cause it was such a deal haha, since I can sell it and make money...
It's awesome though!

Hnad!!! Cliporz plox..
If you start a reply with: I have never played one but I have heard good things about it! Your opinion is invalid.

HNAD, man! Looks like fun, especially with your taste in guitars. I think that amp will suit your needs nicely.

And damn, those pics take a lot of time to download. Can you just use the (Invalid img) tags off imageshack to post? Or something. Resize to 680 x800 or whatever first tho. lol

maybe you're not saying the right things? an amp likes to know you care.

Yeah the head was only $700 (CDN) which is an absolute steal, considering it usually sells used for $900 +. The guy was selling the cabinet for $400 seperate, but if I bought both, he gave me a $100 dollar discount... so head and cab, only $1000 (CDN again).
And yeah the transtube was my very first beginner amp, I still have it kicking around, trying to sell it now actually. The YCV50 was my amp after that... and now I'm pretty set for a while.
Yeah sorry I never re-sized the picture, they are huge, its a 10 MP camera... sorry bout that.
And I thought the picture where you could see the drums in the chrome was cool... maybe not.
And I don't know if I can get any clips yet, I really don't have any way to record, other than my laptop mic or a usb mic.
And I haven't found a perfect tone yet (obvs) my clean doing is doing pretty good, as is my crunch, but I haven't mixed around with the ultra much yet. Anybody got any good settings to use, for a warmer, smoother high gain? (NOT METAL)
Thanks guy!

For me anyway, the pics were loading way too slow, I gave up. Laptop was running slow at the time though.

I don't like people being able to get into my on-line pic folders so I lock them and then just post the (Invalid img) tags so the pic posts up on a forum. There should be a setting in there so that every time you upload a new pic, it automatically re-sizes it to whatever you want. 800 x 600 is good. Just sayin.

As far as the ultra channel have you tried with the gain down to like 10 oclock and push the mids? IRC the JSX has an active EQ so it will take some fiddling.

Are you the guy that was looking for an Ampeg cab? I take it you are no longer?

Yeah I just got my imageshack account, so I didn't fiddle around with anything... I'll remember that for next time though!
And I haven't tried the ultra with gain down at 10 o'clock... I feel that destroys the purpose of the "ultra" channel, as my crunch channel would have the same if not more gain.
And yeah active eq is freaking weird. At least its not on the clean channel, so I found that tone pretty easy haha.
I really like the crunch tone I'm getting right now, its really tube-y, if that makes sense.
And I was looking at the ampeg cab, but the only info I got was that it could have two different celestions, and the guy selling it never e-mailed me back saying what speakers it had, so I guess thats kinda gone.
I think I'm going to get a Mesa Stilleto/recto 4x12, or an orange 4x12, as V30's are bomb with the JSX. I can't really find any obscure cabs (framus, engl etc.) around here (used) as it is Canada.
