    I am curious to see how much of the Dyna-Cab stuff makes it to the FM3 and FM9. I know they said there will be more cabs also. I generally like the Recto Oversized, and that one is not on the list yet.

    Axe Fx 2 - ART SLA2 - Mesa 4X12

    Yep, use Output 1 into the monitors and Output 2 into the amp. Set up a patch where you split the signal and then cab block to Output 1 (FX Loop Block), and EQ into Output 2.

    Small form factor amp modellers

    I love the FM3 for this. It is not as tiny as some units, but it sounds and feels much better.

    What is your next guitar/gear purchase gonna be?

    I can tell they have some more bass and are more aggressive than the old Ruby EL34s I had in there. I don't know if they are like the big bottles, but they do sound good. I have been listening to a lot of Coal Chamber lately, so I kind of had that type of sound in my head. The extra tube does...

    What is your next guitar/gear purchase gonna be?

    Apparently a set of E34L tubes. I decided to remove almost all the mods in my JCM800 2203 clone. I put it to stock except a small tweak in the poweramp for more bass and a depth control. I had an extra tube gain stage in there, but there is something about an extra tube that smooths out the...

    Disappointed with brand new Charvel DK24 Pro-Mod HSS...Advice? (pictures)

    The action looks pretty low to me, but what doesnt look right is the angle of the neck. The neck is going into the neck pocket instead of the other way which is normal. You can tell the side dots get closer to the body towards the bridge, and they should be level or getting further away. That...

    Do I need an effects loop buffer? Slight volume loss

    Could just be an impedance mismatch with your pedals. Some situations just dont agree with each other.

    Solar Guitars by Ola Englund

    Yeah, there are various ways for it to be done. I dont really care about the bridge being moved an inch as much, but what bugs me is they move the bridge, but then dont change the forearm contours to match. This is common on Strat and Superstrat types. The way I hold my guitars, it is very...

    I like the original Fender headstock best.... That is why I cant look at more Squires...

    Solar Guitars by Ola Englund

    I have been noticing how 24 fret guitars have the bridge moved closer to the neck, which throws off the symmetry with the forearm contours on many guitars. The neck also sticks out further on 24 fret guitars. Because of these reasons I have been preferring 22 fret guitars lately.

    I thought just about everyone owed taxes this year, lol.

    What is your next guitar/gear purchase gonna be?

    I have been considering upgrading some of my blocks, but worry about the restriction of movement. Seems like a lot of work for little tone improvement and movement restrictions. I thought about it on some Floyd Specials though, so maybe it would make a bigger difference. However, I did recently...

    If I am spending $5K, it will be in my investment account, not a guitar amp, lol.

    NAD: Mesa Boogie Single Rectifier Series 1

    It probably has more power supply filtering vs. the Duals. More bigger capacitors will provide a faster attack.

    Marshall reissuing their OG distortion pedals?(Bluesbreaker, Shredmaster, etc)

    The 8100 Preamp and Shredmaster schematics are quite a bit different, so I dont think they would sound the same. However, you can tell they are in the same family, so there are probably a lot of similarities. It has been MANY years, but once upon a time I had a Shredmaster and a VS100, and I...

    Looks like an Aion FX clone. I have considered building one of those those.

    I have decluttered my entire house massively this year.... except for my gear. I keep eyeballing it thinking when will it happen, lol.

    Do you really need tube amps for tone?

    Getting that output transfomer - speaker reactive interaction down is the last key to this....
