Why hello!

I'm extremely happy today! Wanna know why?

Our lovely Min, took on the challenge of modifying my little ol epiphone valve special. This thing could barely get enough gain on its own to get a cream tone! There were so many problems originaly as i play black sabbath and of course need gain and a great sounding amp! So here is the result:

Its absolutley terrible.


GOTCHA!

This little guy is friken amazing! I can get gain for, classic rock all the way up to modern metal! The tone is overall better to! Sounds like a combination of a jcm800 and a 5150/6505. Wanna know why? WELL THE PCB WAS REPLACED WITH A JCM800 PCB! WHICH MEANS ANOTHER TUBE!!!!!!!!!!!! OH YEAH!

Its my little jesus now, and i cant stop playing it. Just sounds so terrific. the gain knob at 1 o clock is amazing for black sabbath and the upgrades he did overall made my tone much more suited for my music, and i love it!

Min, your amazing, you get a cookie for this! I will definatley doing buisness in the future with you!

STAY TUNED FOR A POSSIBLE VIDEO!

THANKS TO EVERYONE WHO MADE THIS POSSIBLE
(which was only Min )

If you need to kill a man with a 9v adapter? I say strangulate. Or swing the heavy end around and aim for the temple, all depends on your style.

it's actually a jcm800 + another tube.

the jcm800 is in there somewhere. Frankly, I think the stock jcm800s are a little weak. Good for classic rock but not really my thing at all. It's in there with the gain at 9 or 10 o clock.

Everything after that is for music that your dad doesn't listen to.

Everyone is entitled to an opinion.

Feel free to express yours so I can make an informed judgement about how stupid you are.

He's obviously pretty young, and I'd guess he's being raised by wolves, or at least humans with the intellectual capacity and compassion of wolves.


You finally made it home, draped in the flag that you fell for.

I'm an idiot and I accidentally clicked the "Remove all subscriptions" button. If it seems like I'm ignoring you, I'm not, I'm just no longer subscribed to the thread. If you quote me or do the @user thing at me, hopefully it'll notify me through my notifications and I'll get back to you.

I'll have to put the Classic T models on my to-try list. Shame the finish options there are Anachronism Gold, Nuclear Waste and Aged Clown, because in principle the plaintop is right up my alley.

Presumably because the CCF (Combined Corksniffing Forces) of MLP and Gibson forums would rise up against them, plunging the land into war.

At one time, a Bugera model or another was prone to going up in smoke...

Parents bro. They don't know anything about gear.

I find it funny when my dad mocks me for spending 200 bucks on a cab. Then I sell it a month later for 350 and he shuts the **** up.

My father goes: Son, do you really NEED an ENGL Blackmore? It cost 850 euros...
My reply: Dad, do you really NEED a Yamaha FJR 1300 motorcycle? It cost 21000 euros...

Damn, I wish my parents would shut up when I said stuff like that. I just get the "Do we really need to have you live here?" line.

The key is to buy it and then tell them you've bought it afterwards. Then they can complain all they want but they can't really do anything

Wasnt going to. he just assumes in a month a will. if i did, however, he would completely change everythin he said. lets say i get 400 bucks for it, "i told youd be able to get alot of money off of it!" "im pretty sure you said i wouldnt get 100 bucks for it" "THATS NOT WHAT I SAID! WHY WOULD I SAY THAT WHEN ITS CLEARLY WORTH MONEY! SHUT UP JARROD YOU DONT LISTEN WHEN I TALK!"
