    Alex Lifeson - Hiwatts

    Call me crazy, but to my ears, Alex's tone on Hemispheres sounds vaguely like the Boston or Randy Rhoads Blizzard of Ozz tone. Not exactly, but it has that nice, smooth, compressed distortion sound like it's coming across small speakers.

    Finally got the AC/DC tone — it’s the speakers!

    Is that strictly for recording, or can it be used with your rig in the room?

    Fractal Audio Systems is INSANE!

    I'm at a point where I'm very simply tired of tweaking and just want to play. In the last few months I've returned a Boss GT-1000 Core and a NUX MG-30. The Core had a problem and the NUX just wasn't what I thought it would be. I may revisit the modeling thing eventually, and my GT-100 and Zoom...

    Does/did Marshall make less of the 1960B cabs?

    The 'A' cab, which I have, sounds great and looks really sleek in a half stack, but there's a certain magic to the straight cab. I still want one.

    Does/did Marshall make less of the 1960B cabs?

    When I look on GC's Used Gear site, there are usually several 1960A slant cabs. But the "B" version? It seems to be more and more of a rarity these days. Is the 1960A just more popular and common?

    The service guy f*cked up my JCM 800

    Have someone else play across your amp while you listen with the rear cover removed.

    Fractal Audio Systems is INSANE!

    I just ordered the new AxeFX half stack and it should be here by mid-October. I can't wait. Just kidding. I photoshopped this, but I did take a serious look at Fractal recently. I think I'm more into the amp-in-the-room thing and frankly, I'm a little bit burned out on tweaking these days. I...

    Soldano SLO 100 your thoughts

    I've asked this before and if I missed your answer, my apologies. Did you order some type of custom tolex or a custom color? The reason I ask is because the SLO 100 is in stock at the major music retailers.

    Fking Craigslist (slight return)

    Very rarely have I used craigslist, but I responded to a couple of ads this week that reminded me of why I hate it. It's people who DON'T RESPOND. On one, I asked a couple of simple questions. No response. On another one that was asking for trades, I offered a trade. No response. Both could...

    Your Marshall wish list

    I want a 100-watt, 2-channel head where the overdrive channel is voiced like the EVH 5150 Iconic, and the clean channel is voiced like the JCM 2000 DSL 100.

    Guitar is the only thing that keeps me going.

    You're better than that and we both know it!

    Marshall DSL JCM 2000 50w vs JCM 800 2204

    I fired up the Carvin X100B half stack yesterday for the first time in months. I always loved the clean channel on it. But I realized something: it has nothing on the clean channel of the JCM 2000, and I actually think the JCM is a slight bit better.

    Guitar is the only thing that keeps me going.

    Hang in there, and I hope you kicked that "friend" to the curb.

    DSL… the WORST of ALL Marshalls?!?!

    I wouldn't be so sure. There will very possibly be ads that say things like: [email protected]@K!!! DSL100H! VIETNAM MADE!!!!!
