    Overdrive question...

    So, I'm running a Digitech 2112 into a Engl 920/50 poweramp and I want to get a OD pedal to improve my sound some. But with the 2112 it runs through solid state stuff before getting to the tubes. So putting it before that wouldn't do any good. But couldn't I just put it in between the 2112...

    Preamp tube shootout for my Laney

    After getting my Laney head (VH100R), I had played it a few times to get familiar with the tone. It sounded great! It came with TAD EL34s in the power section, and TAD, Mesa, and an unlabeled tube in the preamp. This amp has 6 preamp tubes, and the configuration is a bit odd. Preamp tubes V3...

    Contemplating getting a recto recording pre

    I've done a lot of work now with my Rocktron rig, and I love the sound of it, but I'm looking for something different. I'll always have my Chameleon, but I'm seriously thinking of going to a Mesa preamp. The TriAxis is nice, it's just not heavy enough for me. So, I'm thinking of either...

    Engl E 530 and Carvin TS100 questions...

    Engl E 530-How would it do for technical metal? Also could someone please describe how it sounds for rhythm and lead. Are tube pres like heads where the louder you go the better they sound? I would really like to try it before buying it but none of the local stores carry Engl or will even...

    Preamp, poweramp vs. amp head

    ok, i got tired of not being on the board since my surgery last week and i had this great question. i read about a lot of people using stand alone preamps and poweramps for their cabinets. why not just use a head that has both? greater tone flexibility? more watts going in? someone please...

    Marshall JMP-1 thoughts?

    I looked at the Harmony Central reviews of these and they generally seem to be good, but there are some people complaining they sound processed etc. presumably because it must be a transistor amp with a couple of pre tubes stuck in the output stage. Anyone here got any thoughts on them? I'd be...

    Boosting the Pod signal?

    You know, I love my PodXT as much as the next Line 6 whore, but I've seen several of the mini-preamps made by that brand Art and I'm really curious if there's anyway I can use one to boost the signal (and tone, perhaps?) of my PodXT or UX1 (for vocals). Anybody try it or know if it works...

    Again... preamp selection

    I know it's been discussed ))) Choosing an "under 500$" preamp. Looking at: Mesa studio pre Enlg E530 Marshall JMP-1 Which one should i choose if i want a recto-like sound? Or is there any other <500$Pre that sounds close to rectifier?
