After playing the Uber and cranking that bitch, I honestly couldn't get all the hype...VERY average sounding head if you ask me :\
nice clip again erock
Erock503: Thanks for the demo! I'm surprised this amp can go so heavy. Are you using a pedal with it?
Thanks a lot guys!
Nah dude, it isn't lacking by any means. Sounds raw and mean as hell I don't know, I think I'm confusing squishyness with tightness or something. I tend to like a bit of squishy myself, but I might have been listening to too much DevilDriver lately...
And how DID you get the saturation to sound like that? I can't remember hearing an SE sound like this before
Sick clip man that amp sounds ****in bitchin. I cant really put a finger on anything I'd change...it's tight as hell and just enough compression IMO.
Great clip as always I actually think I liked how you dialed it in before better, I think it sounds a bit loose now.
let me rephrase, I'd like to see a tad more saturation. Just personal preference though.
Nice amp indeed, its looking mighty proud of itself sitting on that Bogner too!
sweet, those are meant to be quite nice. i've only tried the artisan 15, i didn't really like it, but it's a completely different style of amp (and i didn't like it more because it just didn't suit me or my style of playing, rather than because it sucked).
Thats what I'm talking about. Great sh*t man, and great playing as always. NJ FTW!!! (Oh damn, we live in the same county too!! haha just noticed that when I checked your profile)
the rebel sounded pretty good, but the tube mix was a gimmick (channeling Kevin, here), and it was a pretty noisy little bugger. i felt it was overpriced, so I got rid of it.
Not sure what model the speakers are. The Blackstar website just labels then as '10" Celestions' in closed back cabinets.
Agreed. I have a feeling the little Vox tube 4 wattr retailing at $199 will do well too. I'm looking forward to trying both of these little heads out! Good honest review Eric, thanks again.
Congrats on the new HT-5h! That's a great head for the price it's retailing at. While I haven't tried it yet the clips had me on the verge of buying it sight unseen very recently. This review, coming from you and having seen the gear you've had, weighs pretty strong to say the least.
Thank you. I know what my niece is now getting for xmass!
wow the clip sounds amazing. really great tone. can it get to ear-hurting volumes on clean channel? (even if it breaks up)
With an OD in front of it can it pull off Hardcore/Metalcore?
Did you find it from a local shop or online?
sounds damn good. I was considering picking this up.
Just purchased the HT5 stack, but the amp is currently in the post office and I'm in work!!!
can i be your nephew?
EDIT: Sweet amp. I was looking into one before I tried out the Rebel 20.
You bugger! lol what was this about not needing more amps?
I think I remember you talking about getting one of these. It's kinda cool to see the opposite side of the wattage perspective.
I'll check clips when PC is running better. Looks sexy!
I already checked out the clips when you posted it on HCAF
Sweet. Got any clips?
My hand-built Charvel copy and a 5 watt Lifco tube practice amp.
That's right, Lifco, some random ass company you've never heard of.
vitchb: aw, now I need to go sell my body for money and buy a fancier amp because I thought the F series was fancy....
and Erock, how's that Blackstar. They look interesting.
actually, now that i think of it ( ), doesn't engl have some sort of circuitry on the back of the amp for taking bias readings?
1st mistake is a tad silly, but I the other one is totally legit. No way you cold have known
Glad the amp is fine though
yeah. good luck, i hope it works out.
That's what I was figuring, on the dot as well But I won't tell them that, as maybe being in the presence of Erock will have dubbed me some jesus points towards getting some amazing deal
I mean seriously, a SE EL34 for $1800 (5150 he got for $400 on top of $1400 cash) with the midi switcher?! My God!
I think that'll be my plan, and if I get no bites on that, I can sell the 6505 for another $1200 (Canadian) and with the $1000 saved that should almost certainly be enough to get me a used Savage 120, or at least I'd hope.
it is really bad. im serious. most people who love krankenstein are 14 and own a spider 3
Exactly. People over estimate the tonal impact of powertubes. They think if they go with a certain tube than they will get a certain sound just like that.
British sound EL34's, American sound 6L6's, not exactly.
I mean, Marshall's were originally made with 6L6's, then changed to EL34's for supply and price reasons. But the amps still sounded the same either way. How an amp sounds is based on it's circuitry and preamp. A poweramp tube swap will only affect the tone marginally.
Not 100% sure yet. Likely to be loaded with Splawn SB25s or Eminence Governors though, I hear lots of good things about those speakers with the Nitro.
Did you ever get a chance to try your Nitro with speakers outside of the V30's?
^ very nice , if i ever become a professional gutarist that would be the amp ill have :P
btw does it make a big difference to dual mic a amp instead of only using a sm57 ?
Clip is already sounding great!
sweet amp there erock. i've only tried the 6L6 SE (and probably only scratched the surface there too), so not too sure if i can help too much. will check out the clip too.
EDIT: what do you mean by dual output channels?
Oh good, because im lookig to tighten up my tone. Hows the BBE one????
It's one of those things were alot of people buy it, love it, and sell it shortly afterwards because they realized that the amp sounds better without it. I switch around with mine, I'll only use it sometimes.
and I'm compelled to give you this. Credit Bartdevil_metal
