I've been playing electric guitar since september. how long have you been playing? I've been picking up gear all over new england this last month so I wouldn't have to ever worry about it again. Where are your clipz at? Don't let your mouth write checks that your ass can't cash.

Here's a quick question, when listening to the tone of an amp which is a better perceptual indicator of its characteristics: A. A whole bunch of other peoples songs and awesome technique laden playing or B. Slow scales. (Hint: There is only one right answer)

JayT44 - Technically the JCM didn't cost me anything. I had my Blackstar up for sale on Craiglist and no one was biting but one guy emailed me about a trade for the JCM and he threw in the Wasabi pedal as well. In my head I value the trade at around 600 or so? I needed a combo and the other kid needed a practice amp. win win.

The chasis is a AX84 project kit. http://shop.dobermanamps.com/product-p/kit-p1.htm. It seemed like it was the simplest amp project to start with. I've got a couple of easy effects coming from diystompboxes as well. I was planning on ripping out the inside of an MG10cd and mounting it inside but the chassis they gave me is way to long. There is of course a large chance that I'm gonna seriously injure myself building this.

been playing 23 years, have been teaching guitar 17 years, made a bunch of cash doing session work...new vids and 2nd album coming soon (another limited release -150 copies).

you never stop buying gear anyway so you will be asking again.

playing scales is not testing a amp....you need to be checking for dynamic response, harmonic response, theres a whole host of features you could of demoed in the short vids taking the same time.......a tube amp responds to the instrument totally different to a SS amp.

well if your on book 2 you`re doing well...you just need to slow down on the GAS 2 guitars and a whole host of amps and effects doesn`t make you a better guitarist...if anything it makes stuff awkward trying to setup and control your tone.

consider my initial response as motivation not criticism.....considering that you`ve only been playing 6 months and are self taught knowing the pentatonics is pretty good and your fretting technique was good (i`ve heard alot worse from more experienced players)....i just got bored of hearing the same thing over and over without hearing how the amp responded to pick attack, harmonics, and open chord rings (as the main things to review).

I'd like to point out that the time frame would be 5 months. But it's cool math is hard for me as well Professor Ibanez. So if I could get some more helpful motivation from you...
I count seven guitars. We'll discount the two acoustics since one is my main and the other is my toss into a bag and bring to lessons. That leaves 5 electrics which are in no particular order
PRS SE Soapbar Semi-hollow with .11 gauge strings - PRS made P-90s bridge/neck (25'' scale length)
PRS SE Custom 22 Stopbar with .10 gauge strings - PRS made humbuckers bridge/neck (25'' scale length)
Epiphone Les Paul Standard plain top - with .10 gauge strings - Epiphone made humbuckers bridge/neck and stetsbar tremolo bridge (24.75'' scale length)
Gibson Les Paul Studio plain top with .12 gauge strings with Seymour Duncan SH-1 bridge and TB59-1b in bridge/neck in coil-tap/reverse phase/series-parrallel 4push pull pot wiring (24.75'' scale length)
Gibson Les Paul DC AAA Flame Top with .13 gauge strings with Seymour Duncan Phat Cats (24.75'' scale length)

Please let me know which guitar is considered to be representative of the typical guitar instrument and most conducive to the learning of guitar talent you had commented on earlier. I will dutifully trash the rest as they would be atypical guitars.

On the topic of effects should I utilize in my pursuit of guitar tone talent? On my Steinway at home there are only 3 effects pedals, a sustain, a dampener, and a split sustain. The number of guitar effects is sure confusing. What is the consensus on acceptable effects? Please point me in the direction of a scholarly work that I might pursue on this matter.

In relation to amps here are the ones that I have right now,
THD Univalve - most 12a family pre-amp tubes + automatic biasing for 6l6, 6v6, el34, and kt family tubes
Marshall JCM900 - 12a family pre-amp tubes + el34 power tubes + diode op amp stages Celestion speaker G12T-75
Mesa Boogie Dual Rec Tremo-verb tube rectifier/ss rectifier 12a family pre-amp tubes + el34 power tubes Celestion V30 speakers
Coming Soon - Orange Dual terror - 12a family pre-amp tubes + el84 power tubes
Marshal 1960a Lead Cab - G12t-75 speakers

Please inform me which of these amps and tube combinations produce most faithfully the standardized guitar instrument tone. Also, to minimize my collection of tubes, what tube brands are required for said tonal production. Additionally, which speakers are the most accurate.

In exchange for your informed opinion I will gladly run the tests that you have requested. For the test labeled "response to pick attack" please provide me with a chart of acceptable test controls from 2 standard amps with the variable response mapped as a ratio of angular velocity/length of contact. For harmonics and open chord rings please provide reference tone samples from 2 standard amps in all major keys, as well as harmonic, melodic and relative minors. all modal variations could also be provided for a more complete comparative fidelity/deviation analysis.

Thanks in advance Professor Ibanez! Looking forward to doing the tests properly!

cool gear but you really dont need it. in my opinion what you have is a bit excessive. for 5 months i have to say your moving along very nicely. but i think you have too much gear for your skill level. you seem to actually know about your gear so that is good. but you dont need is all i am saying. it doesnt take all of that stuff to get a good tone out of your amp. knowing how to EQ the amp and just plugging it into your guitar can give you a wonderful tone. especially with guitars your have and that mesa. but then again its mainly opinion
#35
No such thing as excessive gear, ESPECIALLY when you know all about each piece of kit you've got.

I must say you're a hell of alot of a better guitarist at 6 months than myself. I'm glad to see you're passionate about the instrument as you've put alot more work into knowing gear than I did at that point in my playing. I can see you've really done your research, bro.

Another thing: just because someone has the means to purchase something doesn't mean they don't know what they're doing, or that they shouldn't buy it because they don't "deserve" it... it doesn't make sense to be playing on a 10 watt MG just because you can't play at 10 notes per second when you know it sounds like crap.

HNGD, btw.

He has a lot of gear, and he deserves it because of his sense of humour.

Which probably contributed to the job he has to pay for it.

There isn't anybody that flat-out doesn't deserve their gear, unless they never use it.

It's his money, he can buy what he likes with it.

congrats on the gear. i meant to stop by earlier.

you're a funny guy but leave the other fella alone. not sure what that's about.
no reason for hard feelings, i think pics speak for themselves.

and personally, imo, if you can afford it, none of my beeswax. have at it.



anyway, nice stuff
