My Roccaforte custom 100 is louder than my old marshall major. Just too loud.
why do people keep amps that are to loud?
They do have volume knobs.
I will never forget doubling over a pia guitar player with my SVT when he got too close.
Just a little piddle.
For me the Acoustic Amps 260 and it cab 201 I believe, I own one for a while. Nothing could touch them. You could play a stadium back then with just one. They even had to put a big yellow sticker on them that said this amp will damage hearing.
I used to play clubs in Albuquerque with a a Super Twin with an OD1 in front. I hated that amp. Hated it. Toughest rig I’ve ever struggled with live, ugh
That was going to be my pick, my guitar teacher had one of those, played it through two 4X12 cabs and few pedals, with the volume up a hair you could hear it blocks away. I believe Joe Perry from Aerosmith still uses those.
I don't know. Owning a Major is like having a yard long dick. It really impresses your friends and everyone around, but it's not quite useful.
That is the funniest thing I've read in a while
A few years back I was talking with one of the girls I went to school with. She was one of the prettiest girls in the school and probably the most desirable in our year. She mentioned no one ever asked her out. Guess she forgot I did
Sunn Model T
I´ve learned, the hardway, that you already have a no as an answer. so, try it! life might surprise you. asking is free, if it´s no the answer, life goes on and you ask the next girl. When I´ve come around this I went machine gun asking every single good looking girl around me ¨hey, wanna some dick?" (most of the time in a more polite way)
I thought she turned me down but I've started wondering if she even understood what I was suggesting.
The point though that I was making is sometimes the prettiest girls don't get asked because every bloke except the really arrogant ones assume it's a no. There were half a dozen girls in her group all stunners but also all smart funny and friendly. Maybe I should ask the others how often they got asked. I suspect not very...
Lee Jackson's Metaltronix. Killer tone but way too loud. Its the loudest amp I've ever had. Just too much.
100w Rivera Knucklehead. It's one of those amps you can feel, yes it's that damn loud!
Output transformer on that thang weighs about 20 pounds....
this is supposedly the 1st one made...
1972 vintage Hiwatt DR405 400 watt amp. Serial number 3001 makes it the 1st DR405 made. This amp was made by the original Hiwatt company owned by Dave Reeves and not by the newer company currently using the Hiwatt name and making an amp with this same model number. This amp is an original with Partridge transformers that the current model does not have. Dave Reeves died in 1981 and the original Hiwatt company folded. 40 were made and 11 are known to still exist. This one belonged to Glenn Cornick of Jethro Tull. $6500.00....
This amp is registered in the Hiwatt Registry
So should we modify a Fender 400PS for guitar?
Fender was so great.
Sorry but Fender beat them to it. Most likely, just like Marshall, Hiwatt copied Fender.
one the same.
yeah, but they added that English pub accent...
