The WIKI has just been granted as Higher Education Status! This is Good News for all of us in this Forum and other VK users. It still needs Dudey to verify the WIKI. He has said he would contribute to keep it going. Don't know how much it cost him but we could donate some to him to help out via PayPal if he has an account. Dudey let us know if that is acceptable.
Wow this got bigger than I expected. Anyway, just to clarify: my budget is $400-$500. I want it for some fairly high-gain rock and metal , but I also want a decent clean. I've tried the 6505, and while I like it, it's a bit too heavy for me.
Florida or Ohio?
OT: Going to Kent State, majoring in Political Science. When I see how well my music skills progress, may consider adding a jazz minor.
EDIT: Realised that FL is U of M.
Use that the sum of (-1)^n a(n) converges if a(n) is (1) monotone decreasing and (2) tends to 0 as n->infinity (Leibniz's test). If |x|>1 (2) fails, just show that if |x|<1 or 1, a(n) is monotone decreasing (not necessarily for all n but for all n > n_0, for some n_0).
I was looking at comp-eng programs at various universities, and some doesn't even mention the word "programming" at all, whereas others have lots of various programming modules.
I'd assume that at least C-programming should be a part of it... perhaps some things go as common sence – I dunno...
.Have Intel sent out the fixed Sandy Bridge boards yet? And can manufacturers sell the old ones without having to state if they have the fault? Sorry if this is a stupid question
I don't think so... I would think mechs would have the best chance of getting a job there but I have nothing to back my reasoning with.
I'm actually a mech, it's my first workterm though so I was pretty much just looking for a job period. I'll probably try and find a job better suited to what I'm studying for my other terms.
I'm thinking either Tong-Sol 12AX7 in V1, JJ 12AX7(or Mullard, which I have a new one now), and a Sovtek LPS 12Ax7 in V3, JJ 6L6GC power tubes, or, like how I was reading in the original posts, a Tong-Sol in V1, and two 5157(?) in V2 and V3.
Should I go with JJ power tubes, or TAD power tubes?
I'm looking for a bright, punchy clean that breaks up late, and a smooth warm gain that's not too bright, I'm not worried about how much gain I have on tap, that's what the TS is for. Right now my tone is a bit muddy and on the bright side, so it's a tad bit twangy, cleans are great, but breaks up really early, cleans starts to OD around 2-3 on the volume.
I don't actually own a bugera. I'll have to re edit my post. lol.
But I was thinking Peavey Valveking and a BUgera 333 OR. Just a Blackstar HT 60 combo or an Engl Thunder and that cab.
I havent actually got either of these amps yet. I was buying a harley benton 4X12 cab with V 30's in it.
But I thought cause of youtube demo's it would be ok for metal?
OKay so I'm reporting back...the Sovtek is bad because its the only one that didnt light up. Not sure if it matters but one of the pre amp tubes lit up alot brighter than the other one, and then one was out completely. The power tubes were very warm too, never touched them before while it was on so was wondering if that was normal. AND last thing, I moved the amp while it was on so half of it was in the air..if you can picture this.sort of like it was wobbling and put it down, not gently, but not roughly and got this really weird bouncing wobbly sound like it was coming from the reverb tank being loose or something. Again something I have never done before so I was wondering if that was normal too. Okay I think thats it lol.
Oh yeah that definitely aggravated the noise. should i unscrew the cover and take a look around? cuz the cables are in all the way
Let's say that my problem is with the amp. It is none of the pedals because I have stripped the amp care and plugged it into every outlet in my room and I'm still picking up interference. So if it is the amp, could it be wires lose in the back? I recently changed the tubes, but I played it for a good week so I don't think its them. Maybe something got messed up while transporting but I have no idea what to check.
personally, i love Dimarzio Cliplock staps. go check them out. they're really comfortable and will NEVER let go
So I just hooked up my vk and all the pedals in my college dorm and I am getting some crazy static from the amp..something I've never had before. Now I know that sometimes cellphones can interfere and make some kind of static..is it possible that there is interference from like the network system or something here? Because I really dont think its any of equipment.
what mods could be done?
I'd recommend a Pod Studio instead.
Hey guys anyone have any EQ settings for a rock style worship band? if youre familiar with the band hillsong united then thats kinda the tone im lookin for
been awesome bro. moving away for college in one week, so i'm really excited. how's everything with you?
So, anybody every try out Mullard tubes in the VK. I just bought a Mullard 12AX7 out of impulse, Musicianfriend.com is having a 0 shipping cost sale, so, you know, why not.
I'm thinking about putting it in place of the gain stage tube, which I think is V1, right?
The 6L6EH is actually a Sovtec WXT+! It is not too bad! I prefer the TAD tho!
Doesn't this run contrary to what most people are recommending for the Valvekings?
hey guys after reading the wiki i've decided to replace the OT and choke in my VK at the same time i do my tubes. im not very knowledgable on these things and will be getting a tech to install, but looking to purchase myself as it will be a lot cheaper.
1. there is no problems using an OT from america in australia correct, since it is not the power transformer?
2. is there somewhere in australia to purchase a custom choke, i have already ordered the OT and it is too late to add a choke.
3. do i need to bias my 4xjj 6L6gc tubes (matched quartet)
4. since v2 is for gain, i was thinking tung sol in v1 and v3, and JJ in v2. predominantly play metal and rock. Also i have an mxr 10 band, a bad monkey and an isp decimator in there.
thanks a heap guys, looking forward to the facelift for my VK
Then what about the benefit of a half-stack over a combo?
I'm checking out a 20 watt head, but there is also a 20-watt combo made by the same company that is almost exactly the same.
