good good. I see that you have changed your amp setup quite a lot since i last checked. How have you been?
Holy coppers batman, its Eric.
friends, aquantinces, shadow, if i have one bit of advice for all of you during the rest of your life, do NOT get yourself into a pickle juice chugging competition.
Whilst the Mark V looks absolutely awesome in every way, I think its a bit above my price range at the moment. Looking more at a morer affordable option, preferably something a Uni Student (Me (almost anyway)) can afford somewhere along the track. I currently have a modelling amp and its good, but the dirty channels have way too much distortion even with the settings way down, so a specific amp that I could look at getting for heavy tones would be good
I figured if I toned the gain down on an ENGL I could get the sound I'm looking for, but it sounds like ENGLs are just made to roar with gain so if I toned it down it would lose a lot of body
are you serious!!! what models and what are they asking?
EDIT: also nice to see Sal's outa' the picture. Nuthin' but trouble from them.
I had to order mine... and it took almost 10 months to get it, so act fast if it's something you're interrested in. They have exactly ONE US distributor, Salwanger or some **** like that, and sometimes they don't play nice.
Thanks for the replies, anyone have a suggestion for a new 12ax7 for my v16? The stock tubes just have too much grainy sizzle with high gain.
i never shipped it it was the buyer who shipped
its all good he fixed it
****...I forgot about the changes...... good point dude. They may hold the money.
Not entirely true. Paypal will not put the dispute through if it's a shipping claim (especially if there was no insurance and the item was working when it was sent). How do you know that his "power converter" from 110 to 220 didn't fry the reverb pot?
Paypal will do nothing.
Also, it is NOT the responsibility of the shipper if the item had no insurance on it, and there was nothing done by the receiver otherwise.
Cabs have two ways of affecting the sound. The first is that they load the speaker. They interact with the speaker like a spring and as a source of resistance to shape the frequency response at low frequencies, the easiest way is to think of this as the speaker being the equivalent of the string and the cab as the body of a guitar, strings have characteristic sound but nevertheless sound different in different guitars. Speakers have to match their cabs and you use different designs of speaker for bass reflex (ported) cabs, closed cabs and open cabs.
The second effect is due to resonances caused either by the flexing of the wooden panels or due to the dimensions of the cab. The cab panels will only resonate at certain frequencies but can create more sound than the speaker when they resonate. Any note that hits this will sound louder than other notes there will also be lots of frequencies where the speaker sounds and their reflections will destructively or additively interfere and change the sound. For PA or hi fi we design out as much of this as possible but many successful guitar cabs exploit lucky accidents of resonance to give a sweeter or louder sound.
First off, are the 12AX7 tubes Sovtek? Sovtek make lousy 12AX7 tubes from what i hear, might want to change thouse. Though you could swap the EL34s for 6L6s. The EL34 are more british voiced tubes and will have more midrange freqs comming out, though you would have to bias befor changing the power tubes.
Also, i would get better 12ax7 tubes, maybe EH, or JJ.
True say, and when you've got the other two channels anyway, it seems unnecessary to want to clean up channel 3.
Hmm fair enough, mine doesn't, I mean it cleans up but never to a particularly satisfactory level anyway.
I agree with the rest though, mine is one of the newer ones, and while I haven't played an older one considerably, I can say that the newer ones do a formidable metal tone.
The heart of AJ's tone is his two VH4's.
A VH4 won't do that.
Attenuators should also be far more well known by all guitarists because they grant an even more significant amount of tone control. Using a 3 point EQ system like this can make huge differences in what amps can sound like. Sure it takes some of the "romanticism" out of amps because essentially with the right EQing the tonal differences between different amps is so small it's almost or totally negligible; but really tonal control is far more important.
Probably. Would you consider the SE a focused sounding amp?
At the 4k range, I'd probably stretch out a bit more and pick up a herbie. In time...
Also, the tubes are blue because there are LEDs behind the power tubes
Tried it for a good while. ENGL to me has 2 sounds. The somewhat scooped rather compressed one(pb/fb/se), and the open midrangey (savage, invader, blackmore). I've grown out of the former, so for me its all about the roaring midrange.
The previous owner of the Savage 120 I'm receiving replaced the power tubes with Svetlana 6550's. Anyone have any idea how that might influence the sound?
He's sending me the stock tubes (GE NOS 6550), and I'm wondering if I should put them back in. Also, what tools can I use to bias this amp easily? I've seen that Weber Bias Rite, but any other ways?
its this one http://cgi.ebay.com/Custom-5w-Dumble-Style-Guitar-Amp_W0QQitemZ170342859142QQihZ007QQcategoryZ10171QQssPageNameZWDVWQQrdZ1QQcmdZViewItem
hes a good guy i owe him a favor for sending me a free 6v6 tube when the old one broke
