    My new DSL40CR

    Lot of people think OD2 is too dark and compressed. I like OD1 with a pedal - not really for more gain but for toneshaping.

    How many people use the FX Loops in their amps...?

    Normally no but then I don't like delay effects. On the SV20 I have a little black box in the loop so I can actually use it at home.

    What tubes are you running in your Marshall?

    I like the GT mullard replicas everywhere. In my experience not the most reliable -I've killed 3 so far - but nothing else gives my amps that mojo. Thick and crunchy.

    Pyramid nickel classics. Although the PRS ones sound like similar design.

    Marshall tube amp for home

    It's true that a 40CR is more compressed-sounding than a lot of amps but that's partly what makes it work well at low volumes. There's enough adjustment to keep it to a minimum. If you avoid the red channel.....

    DSL40CR vs DSL100HR

    It's true that you can get great tones at bedroom volumes with the 40 but there's definitely some extra mojo once the volume gets to 6-7. Quite possibly the 100 is the same - dunno.

    Let’s talk about nuts

    A while back it was all the rage to put a nylon nut on LPs because 'bursts came with them. So I did. You can't get 6/6 nylon anymore - one of the components was a carcinogen and was banned. I think what I used was 6/8 which is the modern equivalent. I just got a sample piece from a plastics...

    Beck's Setup, Marshall JCM2000 DSL50

    Something I've noticed in life is that the true geniuses are usually humble - it's the wannabes that gob off all the time. On the subject of his playing if there is a secret secret to being a great player as I've long suspected it's the amount of attention lavished on each note that makes the...

    Beck's Setup, Marshall JCM2000 DSL50

    I suddenly regret my post above. When I saw him ( not 25 miles from his house) he had the 2 DSLs, a couple of rats and some kind of delay. I'm sure he could've had any amp he wanted. Anyway he sounded exactly like Jeff Beck. I also read an article by his tech for that series of concerts who said...

    Groove tubes

    Did a proper check and it wasn't the preamp it was a power tube - also a groove tube. Took it out and it was rattling. Put another one in and the crackling stopped. Weird thing is I liked the sound of the dead one.....
