I recently did a survey on practice/show amps and guitar manufacter at the academy today and i came up with this conclusion.

Practice amps

2 Line 6 Spider II
6 Line 6 Spider III
1 Roland Cube 15x
1 marshall MG15
1 Vox AD30VT
4 Vox AD30VT-XL
1 Line6 Flextone

show amps
7 Krank Krankenstein
1 Mesa/Boogie Dual rectifier
2 Mesa/Boogie Triple Rectifier
3 Marshall JCM800
2 (that's including me) Marshall 2203KK
1 Mesa/Boogie Mark IV
8 Peavey 6505


THE funny thing in the amp survey was the most of all the users of Mesa/boogie products also use Line 6 products.

Guitar manufacterers
3 (including me) B.C. Rich
5 (including me) Jackson
12 (including me) Ibanez
1 Epiphone
3 Gibson
5 Squier
1 Fender
5 ESP/LTD

another funny thing is that when asked the most of the people who said they use the Krank Krankenstein they don't even like Dimebag Darrel or Dean guitars.

Wierd info
All the B.C. Rich's were the KKV or it's lower class models.
All the ESP's were the LTD AL-600 or the DJ-600
All but one of the Ibanez's were in S-series line up the only one was a RG.

well anyways hope you like what people at the academy i go to play.

Damn man youve probably got the only non stereo-typical academy right there.

You could get $1000 custom made pickups hand wired with Eric Johnsons pubic hair, and they'd still sound pretty bad through a ****ty solid state practice amp.

i know it's wierd but it's nice though because they let you drive if you have a driver's license.

In short they're laid back on the rules but when it comes to tube amps it's iffy.

120 watts tube is not powerful, its hearing damage.

120 tube watts is a lot!

if you read the first post the guy that has the triple rect just got it the minute and mean the exact minute that the new tube amp wattage rule was issued.

Triple Recto + EMG 81's + Good Guitarist = Getting a fine of $130 US and a six month guitar probation.

That guy was my roomie and co-guitarist in my band. Yep he was a fool now he got himself another six months for breaking the tube amp wattage rule.

oh no! You got it all wrong that probation is from the amp not his guitar. He has another amp it's an Roland Cube but at the time he was caught and penalized he was playing his 150 Watt Triple Recto really loud around lights outs for first years.

.....Oh! and yes the school is at fault because they forgot to take the amp away for the first six months of the probation.

that is taking THE proverbial piss.

just because an amp has 500 million watts plastered on the front doesn't mean you're going to play it at full volume and destroy solar systems.

write to your principle/dean/guy in charge.

12 Ibanez? Not surprising...

And the practice amps weren't surprising either. Those are the only ones anyone buys! No-one wants Crate or Peavey or Hughes and Kettner or Behringer (which suck) or Randall or Fender amps any more.

Today the Academy's new headmaster just did a campus wide crack down of all unapproved items. I have created a list of items that they took and the names of the houses that they went into.

Morgenstern House (my house)
20 Guitars and cases/gig bags including all of my guitars and cases
12 Amps and covers/cases including my Marshall 2203kk
500 DVDs of random genres which 35 were mine
12 Desktop and Laptop computers took my desktop computer but not my new laptop.

Sunrise house
41 guitars and cases/gig bag
20 amps and cases/covers
650 DVD of random genres
13 Desktop and laptop computers

Terremere House
10 guitars and cases
1 amp
12desktop and laptops
100 dvds

chrysanthemum house
15 guitars
15 amps
563 dvds
6 desktop and laptop computers

Lapis Lazuli house
12 guitars
1 amp
230 DVDs
12 desktop and Laptop Computers

in total they took
103 Guitars and cases/gig bags
49 Amps and covers/cases
2043 DVDs
55 Laptop and desktop computer

In total in a monetary sense my rough estimate is that they took a little over $100,000 USD of our stuff that doesn't even have to do anything with the so called "Cleansing the school of deliquents". It's Just a bunch of BS and with that the professor don't even like him. so they said they would get our stuff back.

4. Approve all new musical, electronic, and ETC purchases that bought outside of the campus
5. fighting will be punshable by student strike count
6. Knock before entering a room
7. Have fun

New rules
1. Respect the professors
2. Respect the campus buildings
3. Violation of any rules will result with student/ guidence court hearing
4. All unapproved materials will be taken and sent home
5. All Electronic equipment will be turned off at nine o clock sharp
6. Any student entering a room with the opposite sex will be directly sent home.

Wow. Just Wow. Um, the search can be deemed illegal if they didn't get a search warrant first, even if this is a private institution, they still have to abide by federal law (specifically right to privacy). Unless classes are segregated by gender, Rule number 6 has been broken by every member of the school and as such, all students should be expelled (read the rule carefully lol). Banning colours is unconstitutional (freedom of speech and expression), and confiscating of personal property must be done with a warrant (Right to privacy again). So you're school is in violation of several federal laws as I see it. Also, I'd make sure that your stuff gets home where they say they are sending it, if it doesn't get there, I'd go right after them. That really sucks for you, I feel your pain. Hope everything gets worked out quickly and this new guy gets the drumstick out of his ass (sorry for the music joke).

he had search warrants to do the search because he heard a rumor that one of the third years had some angel dust and some pornographic materials that he was selling to the guys in his house which was a complete lie that one of the first years started three days ago.

the school has six houses but the sixth house got an unfair exemption because it's the that first year student that caused this whole ruckus house. btw the kid who started actually had the illegal materials.

oh and the sixth rule is condensed version of the real one so here's the real version

"Any student entering a (house) room with the opposite sex will be sent directly home without the house registrar approval."

the Headmaster has the housing directories and housing rosters for each so he should know that the rooms are co-ed rooms so i don't understand many of his rules.

What the fuck? Wait they come in and steal your shit?

Explain, and why does this place even exist?

like i said a first year student lied about one of my house members having illicite goods in which he had.

the headmaster just released all of our stuff so yeah the kid who lied just got booted out of the school an hour and half ago.

to answer your questions

The headmaster, couple campus sercurity guards, and a couple cops knocked on the door and said that they were going to take some of our stuff to get checked out for the illicit items and showed me and my roomies. Then our House Dean came to check what going on my floor level and assured us that our stuff was going to be held in the Tower offices. while waiting outside i was talking to a friend from a different house and he that all houses are being searched and items of interests were being taken. All this because the kid lied about selling illicit items.

To answer your second question

The Academy wasn't originally like this, the school used to be an laid back on rules that restricted the freedom of the students so the students used to do what ever that was on their free will. When the parents got wind of the relaxed nature of the school they deicide to setup a concile of reveiwers and this story get long so it's condensed to this the concile said the original headmaster Professer Jack West was an incompetant as a leader and chairman of the school. In Short He was booted for a much strictor headmaster Professor John Steinberger. He was a tyrant that his rule and regulation were final and were meant to root out "deliquency" in Children. this Academy was founded to be a school of technology.
