Do you guys know which one I need for an Edge Pro tremolo?
monwobobbo I believe so and I know they aren’t very good. Haven’t tested it yet. Trying to keep it completely stock for a bit until I’m absolutely sure I want to modify things. But I think regardless I’ll have to install an original Floyd sometime down the road.
Totally. The Tremol-No is a great useful device.
Go for it.
How do I achieve such tone? (EQ, etc.)
I would prefer zoom G3 patch, but I can't find any. Help?
Not an expert on serial numbers or amp dating but owning and playing Peaveys in that timeframe, this amp looks newer than 1981 to me. The look of the knobs reminds me of Peavey amps made in the late 1980’s, early 1990’s, but again, could be wrong.
Hey guys, what do you think about vintage guitar Teisco Checkmate "Hertiecaster" (Stratocaster) with 4 pickups made in japan in 1960. It's selling for 320$.
Does it guitar good for this price or better buy Fender Mexico?
I think the grass looks greener over there. I'm hoping to jump the fence and check it out, even though everything is just fine over here. I dialed in my tone, tweaked my circuits, got the best speakers, pedals, etc etc. It's a classic rock animal. Still the world of vintage amps calls my name. There's so much out there to explore, and I want to try it all.
List your budget, 3 favorite guitarists, and general location so we know what is available in your area. Experienced players will chime in.
In my experience with these amps the Vox and Fender SuperChamp are the best for vintage guitar tone. Vypyr and Katana are the best for modern guitar tone. Code is just godawful. Completely below the acceptable noise floor for me. Pick your poison.
Cheers mate, I actually got on it cut the treble and now I have roughly the tone I was looking for.
Listen regarding this whole issue, I essentially have no budget, so I work with what I have realistically isn't the best, but again, fairly good.
I don't use the gain button as like you said the already muddy tone gets muddier.
I don't turn the gain past noon as I've found beyond that it gets muddier as I go honestly.
I'm using a dummy jack as well as the FX loop patch cord to close it.
The idea with the classic 30 for me is if I have a channel volume, and master with better tubes/speaker already in the classic 30 can I get the high gain just nicer/clearer with it.
I didn't say the peavey vk cant be pushed to high gain, I just find stock it sounds like mud when it gets there.
If the 30 will go there and sound better overall I'm sold on it. If not then it's no biggie.
Also I play at low volume so not having a master on the vk kinda sucks.
Yeh, like I mentioned above.
I'm using an ibaneze tube screamer up front but it's still unsatisfactory for high gain. Cleaning the sound of seems impossible unless I drag it back down to hard rock levels.
As of right now about the best settings I have are
Gain around 5/10
Bass around 5/10
Tubescreamer gain and tone at 0 drive at 10 and make minor adjustments with guitars volume knob.
Still not really satisfied.
If the classic 30 will do better I'd go for it, otherwise I'll stick to the micro cube lol.
monwobobbo I was not sure if changing tubes is like changing oil on a car, you do it every xxx miles regardless.
monwobobbo Because they already have colors to replace them. And yeah there are good ones and bad ones, and as the years go by the lemons will get sorted out. I never stated that a player series can't do everything a standard can. I just stated that there are some features unique to the standards that set them apart from just being a lower end version of the american guitars. You can find Standard Strats from the 90's going for more money than when they were new nowadays.
monwobobbo If they don't bring back those colors then they could very well become collectible. The point is that the standard series was it's own thing and had certain aspects over the american series that people might favor.
They could be in time. Some people prefer the hotter, smoother sounding pickups in the standard series and the more traditional look with the 21 frets and 6 point tremolo. Discontinued colors like Lake Placid Blue or Wine Red could also become more valuable, same thing could happen with Strats that have a rosewood fretboard.
What makes mexican strats special isn't how valuable they'll become over time, it's how they are what Leo Fender envisioned a guitar should be. A high quality, versatile, affordable instrument built for working musicians.
