i was talking guitars with some dude yesturday at applebees. and he asked me about my amp and i said how i use a B-52 AT-212, 100watts, all tube, and he said thats nothing. that he has a 280watt Peavey Dimebag tube amp thats like two half stacks. now i automatically thought he was either A. full of sh!t, or B. had no f-ing clue what he was talking about. cause first off, ive never seen or even heard of a 280 watt tube amp, it would kill you it would be so loud. plus, peavey doesnt even make an amp above 120watts. and Dimebag played Randell amps for most of his career then switched to Krank before he died. so unless im horribally mistaken, this kid is full of sh!t right?

He is full of complete **** and crate actually makes a production blue voodoo head that is 350 watts all tube.

if i remember rightly dimebag NEVER used peavey...
i also thought it was BASS AMPS that went up to that kinda wattage?


its not option A or B, its secret option C which is a combination of the two
Top lel.

He might have been talking about the Randall Warhead, 300 watts, but it's solid-state..

He was probably mistaking the wattage ratings on his speaker cabinet for the actual wattage of the amp head.

Of course it's bs. If you ever see him again, make a point to set him alight.
The Laney Thread are big and clever. No exceptions.

As soon as he said, "that's nothing," about your amp, I would've recognized that he was a dick and tuned him out. If some kid tells me he's playing a Spider, I smile and say, "oh, cool." Only a dick feels the need to top a stranger.

This one would seem to be a liar, too.

not to sound like a dick, but what does this have to do with the topic?


he's poking fun.

280 watts? What kind of random number is that? The guy is telling a huge lie. Either that, or he is horribly mistaken in how much wattage he needs. 280 watt tube? You could easilly go deaf from something like that.
