    Bought a Marshall 1960 Lead Slant for $50 and need some guidance

    Fender tube amps sound fine through Marshall 4x12 cabs, impedance mismatch and all. I've done it.

    Ibanez S420 new top

    Funny being an Ibanez that it was not called the Katana. Maybe it was in reference to the F-86 fighter jet? S could being paying homage to the shamisen.

    Why do Marshall amps have such piercing high treble capabilities?

    The Jubilee's bright cap is 1000pf, which is I believe the same as most 2203s. I have experimented with different bright cap values on my 87 50 watt Jubilee, and the effect on the amp voicing is rather profound. I put the stock one back in.

    Why do Marshall amps have such piercing high treble capabilities?

    Yes. If you examine the schematic of the Jubilee tone stack and compare it to the tone stack of a Hiwatt you will behold some amazing similarities. Another thing interesting about the Jubilee tone stack is ( like on a Hiwatt) that it follows the plate of V2B instead of the cathode. The bass...

    Who here has HAD a “Plexi”…

    My plexi doesn't get played as much in recent years, but I have no plans to get rid of it. I like higher gain, especially with strats, but I don't use pedals. So in most cases it gets used for cleans. I'm thinking about building a John H attenuator.

    NGD Second Knaggs inbound

    I have long wanted a USA graphic on a guitar, but I envision a V with the graphic. Very cool guitar.

    Gibson Sonex 180

    Sounds like a type of fiberglass. Wow $750 in 1981. No wonder noboby bought them.

    1980 JCM 800 A-cab w/ GT-65's- opinions?

    If it does have the 65's, and it sounds good, it would probably be a trade up as a trade in with your 75 loaded cab, as a match up for your SC20H, depending on the type of music you play. The G12-65 with the large dust caps (different speakers from the late model G12M-65 Creamback) is a match...

    NAD Silver Jubilee 2555X

    Also consider a used horizontal 1936V. They have been birch ply for the last 10 years.

    **Looking to get an Epiphone LP Custom Pro. What do y'all think?**

    Ironically, I just saw a sweet water ad for a custom shop 59 standard reissue. $9.7K. That epi is a much better value.

    this is pathetic

    I was in a guitar shop years ago and a local guy was telling how he was asked to play an out doors gig with a big C&W vocal act. He said he would but then he asked; well do you have a tape or something he could learn the songs from. They started laughing and said "oh no your not going to...

    [NAD] Silver Jubilee 2525h

    Oh yeah it has nice master with a gradual taper. Way different from a JCM800 which comes on fast. I use very high output master settings. I would rather use the low power mode on the 2525H than turn the master down to 6. I also use fairly high input gain setting from 6 to 8 although I don't...

    [NAD] Silver Jubilee 2525h

    Your in a better position to sort this, having the other two studio's at hand. With my Jubes, I do adjust the input gain to the guitar. For example, my Charvel needs less input gain than my 62 strat. It's not much adjustment. It little will do ya.

    Do You Gig with a Back-Up Head? - I had H.T. Fuse Blow! Tube-Change Frequency?

    I saw Jeff Beck back in the 80's and his (non Marshall) amp blew up mid song. No back up. What a bummer. He did come back out on a mic'ed acoustic, though. What a bummer.
