ok. thanks for the heads up. i have an offer for a crate blue voodoo as well. opinions? it's the BV head but i forget what cab it is. he wants $550 for the whole thing.
thenextkirk92 says no to the mg but yes to the peavey wow yeah dude if you listen to him just make sure you have a fire extinguisher for when your stage catches on fire
I know almost nothing about electricity/electronics, but I am 99.5% sure that this would not happen. Actually, screw it, I'm 100% sure this would not happen.
Thanks from the explanation Erock.
So you would use what, a Tong Sol in the V1 and JJ's in the rest?
Sounds like a bad amp day, it happens every now and then, my Marshall occasionally doesn't make sound unless I turn it off and on again a few times.
yeah maybe I confused people, a lot of late nights
Well it works now... for the time being.
And I have a spare pre amp tube in case that goes.
...tis pre amp right?
I know nothing of the Blackstar HT-5, but usually when you replace power tubes, your supposed to replace both of them at the same time, with a matched pair. If you pull out the bad one and put in a new one, then the other old tube will just burn out, then you have to replace both anyway.
Idk about the Blackstar though, typically tube amps will have a minimum of two power tubes regardless of wattage.
But to be on the safe side, replace all your tubes if you can, its reccomended to replace the power tubes and preamp tubes at the same time, just so you dont have to do it later.
The reason your tubes burned out could be from the cold, most likely not, but its prolly just old tubes.
Where's Eric when you need him...
From what I gather they're pretty much one trick ponies.
what im not really looking for is t3h br00talz but i like the option of being able to go super br00talz...see what i mostly play is Metallica/Megadeth/80's Thrash/80's Shred/Guitar Instrumental (P-Gilbert, Vai)/ Buckethead <--- love his distortion tone
I dont like a bassy distortion, i like tight trebley distortion with alot of crunch, i play mostly lead stuff. But theres a fine line between tight, crunchy and harsh, fizzy...which i heard is the krankenstein.
Also talking to the guy about the Mesa Triple Rec.. Might be able to do my 6505+ and some cash like say $200-$250 for it.. What do yall think? Whats the deal with the triples I know there is one model most state they hate? Forgot if it was the Triple or the Dual....
Yup right now I think its a toss up between the Randall MTS then getting modules here and there as I get cash. I just found a RM4 with two modules for $600 im eye ballin. Might be able to sell the Ampeg and use the power section of the 6505 for the time being or vice versus. And then there is the Bogner Uberschall if one pops up again. And I have been looking at the Fireball 100 but your the first one to mention anything about it tone wise. So that said its gonna be a highly probable choice now.
Thanks again man I always value your input...
Yep, the Zero Resistance 2 (ZR2) bridge has big sustain issues, especially coupled with such a light guitar.
I'm not too sure about the older S-series guitars, without the ZR2 bridge, but it seems that Ibanez players will generally advise buying used and getting an older S-series. Could just be the older is better, etc. etc. mentality though
If it's the ZR2, you won't have crap for sustain. But the regular one should be fine. Check your neck relief and pickup height.
The irony is that $200 is still not enough to afford one those Holmes or Throbaks, which is absolutely ridiculous...
I really want to try a Holmes for myself, see if it's really worth $600 a set. They're my favorite in that set of pickups tested, the tone is very Pagey-like. I have a set of Wolfetones coming in, a Dr. Vintage neck and an underwound Marshall Mk II bridge. Excited to hear them in my guitar...
he Wolfetone Marshallheads would serve the TS just fine, great vowel like mids, and a nice top end sparkle. Might have too much presence and too hot for a GnR sound but works incredibly well for just about any other type of classic rock that calls for a 1960 burst PAF tone.
trust this advice. this guy knows his ****.
Mapz and sperm...
Is this teh HCAF?
Keep on improving the wheel from the looks of it. I think when it came out to the calculations i did for GAS that i'd think i'd be super complacent with the long run(10 years ha...) it ended up running over 100K and theres no telling what new toys come out from now until then too.
Ill have to scour a Texas Mesa dealer to try one of those out then. from Mesa's site it looks like a nice little jem
ill keep that in mind. My gas list keep growing too much for its own good. at this rate itll end up costing me more than 8 years of college
Its been recently that i've begun to liking my lead channel again. back when i had my Vader 2x12 hooked to it, it was a dream. However the Vader went with me to college to pair up with my cheap rack rig/mark V. So I bought an avatar 2x12 with v30's and it got very harsh and brittle sound out of my Mark IV which made me not like it as much. But when i tried out the Mark IV and Nitro head to head, i ended up walking out of GC with a new cab for my mark IV, a mesa wide body 1x12. Got it back to a even smoother lead sound, in a lighter more portable cab. Though now i have 2x12 sitting in my closet
just sayin, pull out.
just do what my doctor told me.
"don't wanna get pregnant? just don't have sex it's so simple!"
"doc, you crazy."
I feel the same way each time i look at mine. Its a beautiful instrument , built with so much care, i feel its a crime to play it almost. And that would make sense, really a magnificent build
The Nirto excelled better for me in the Lower gain/ch 2 section. The mark couldn't compare there by a long shot. but i couldn't get a smooth lead as i could with the . i tried a super stock and a quickrod last week and loved them much better than the nitro
i was conceived when my mom was on the pill.
Im ready. come winter, ill be retubing it. Meanwhile these mesa tubes do the job.
Thats what got me about the nitro. Also loud little monsters. Thinner sounding at lower volumes than the mark. Also a little too dirty of a clean channel for my taste, but it still was a damn good clean channel. Im too used to the Mark's mid-range punch and bells and whistles . The GEQ and clean channel on it made me choose it over the nitro in the end.
haha yes i did get it from him. he did much better pictures that showed the actual finish than i could ever catch with a 9 year old digi-camera. im loving the edge zero bridge. Its overtaking my lo-pro love.
I agree. 4 months is too short to tweak. it took me a full year to tweak my mark IV perfectly.
The lack tube type combo definitively made me like my mark IV for the time being. I want to try some kt77's ( get a retube kit from bob). i still have yet to change the tubes so i have no idea how old these mesa tubes are( i bought it used 3-4 years ago, so the tubes are perhaps even older).
I almost traded my mark IV straight up for a Splawn Nitro a couple weeks ago, but i couldn't find a way to part myself with it after playing them side by side. That being said a splawn nitro or a one channel amp is on the top of my GAS list.
The BKP will make that baby purr even more. The J customs are such nice guitars. Worth every penny and more. Mine holds the spot at being my favorite guitar after my classical. Where did you get yours from?
Don't be so sure of that. I have a cousin who was conceived while my aunt was on "the pill". Just a fair warning man.
I've never tried one but I would have to agree with you anyway. Normally when a company tries to combine all of the great aspects of their previous products and put them into one new product they fall short of the mark.
it was a great amp. Fixed alot of my beefs that i had with the mark IV, but it ended up being a tweaking nightmare. Plus it would have been sitting in my house this year. Taking a heavy course load so no time to play or crank(living with three other guys). I managed to get a profit off the sell so im not entirely bummed about it. It also helped pay for two very awesome pedals i had been wanting and a very awesome guitar that i've had my eye on for a couple of years
well congratulations, even if it was an "oh ****" baby, so was I.
and that seems like much more help full advice than mine, but i will say this.
oh congrats on the new kid. That must be exciting.
Ha the big question of g.a.s
im still running my mark IV and JSX . I had a mark V for about four months, but had to sell due to tuition payments, new guitars and pedals. kinda bummed that i had to sell it, but my mark IV still does the job well, especially a some new pedals.
you had another one!?
well well well mr. fertile.
Alright, alright. Enough with the mushy, romantic reunion.
