Got the modding itch and have been needing to get me another cab for testing purposes. Also it will be nice to knock the cob webs off the Randall. So I picked her up last night...



Size comparison to the triple stack o death and she made it through the night without being eating by the other amps so I guess she can hold her own lol

Congrats Ibanez! What do you think of the tone? In your opinion, can it hit metal territory with the bad monkey very well?

Stop buying so much gear.

Congratz. Should've got a Blackheart though.

Its actually pretty decent, I was pretty surprised at how well the speaker handled. But its gonna take me a while to tweak it just right, setup the mxr eq and do a bit of modding. And no it cant do metal or even get close without a distortion pedal. I've heard a few clips of fully modded amps and they still cant do metal decently its just a whole big mess of unusable gain. Its mainly gonna be setup for classic rock and clean riff practice..

The Peavey Ultra and Valveking I run in stereo and use for my metal tone. The 4x12 cab is needed to accomplish this because it can be ran in stereo. The Randall is my SS metal amp or low volume practice amp because its volume is more adjustable in a in a night time situation and it has a headphone jack which is a major benefit because tube amps do not. So if I have company over at night im not running them out of the spare bedroom with the two tube amps. The new Valve jr cab is needed because I dont have a cab for the Randall and needed something I could test out broken amps on and not worry about busting a $1000 marshall cab also its more convenient to move around because my side job is a guitar and amp tech. The Valve Jr head is needed because i dont have a low wattage classic rock amp, its great to practice riffs on and its a fun to tweak and mod.

So thats it in a nutshell, each has there pros and cons and there all justified.

How did you get the rig in the closet?


Just for Lulz

i was wondering the same thing, but i see mic's so im thinking he uses it to record :\ but its not that good of a place to record. its too small for such a big cab.

That closet is exactly what mine will be like when I have a house of my own, some irrelevant time in the late 2010's, or early 2020's. Nice buy.

I could easily get a 6505 or mesa but honestly dont really like there tone at low volume playing. 6505 is to fizzy and raw, Mesa is too loose and loud for bedroom playing without an attuenator. I actually prefer my Ultra over both of them and the valveking is just there as a sound filler to make the tone a little fuller. And my next amp purchase to replace these will be along the lines of something pretty high dollar.

It records fine for what im trying to accomplish... I mainly just record for my own enjoyment, helps with practice and its so I can keep track of riffs I create.

That I do......

Nope just with SS amps on the metal muff but i have had experiance with similiar pedals on a tube amp. End result is a warmer can of bees. Its hard to beat tube saturation. Now a pedal will sound better on a tube amp but you wont hear a huge difference.

The reason I ask, is because I'm getting a Crate V18 and even though I play a lot of clean(er) stuff, I love Tool (and some other metal), and I was considering getting a metal muff to try and reach some of those tones. What do you think?

Its a good option if you dabble in metal from time to time but it might get annoying if its a 50/50 kind of thing. But one thing you might find is you will end up getting pedal after pedal to mimic the band when just getting a good versatile tube amp that can do both would have been a better option for you. Its really a prefrence thing though some can be perfectly happy with a bit of gain and no real tone differnce.

Yeah, honestly, I have like 300 bucks in the bank, and no amp. And while I would like to get a nice tube amp, I really don't have the money.
So, then I figured I should get a practice amp, but I also didn't want to waste my money and spend a hundred bucks on an amp that would sound like a pile of s h i t. SO I just decided to spend an extra fifty bucks on a decent tube amp with some alright tone, but I still want to be able to play what I please, so I needed a distortion pedal.
capeesh?

If your short on cash and need versatility then its a good option so I would say go for it unless you can get a more versatile amp for the money you would spend on the pedal. Just go over all your options.
