It's not finished till I'm finished.
The easy fix for this is getting one of these kids to stand in front of a JCM stack, turned up to 8 or 9, and hit an open E chord. #LifeChanging
No iPad or laptop or modeler can compete with that experience. Unless maybe you run one into a power amp that's run into 412 stack...
Just having some, fun. But it is gonna happen.
He was just ahead of his time.
My grandfather helped develop vacuum tube technology. He worked at Westinghouse and RCA for most of his career and died with 136-ish tube patents to his name. He and I discussed solid state vs tubes back in the late 80s not long before he died and he was insistent that solid state could totally replicate tube technology with no discernible sound difference. We even discussed working on a project to make a solid state amp that sounded like a Marshall JCM800. Unfortunately, he died not long after that conversation and we never got to do it.
All that to say, here's a guy who helped make tube tech what it is today who knew for a fact they would get replaced. But, to this day (nearly 40 years after his comments) no one has managed to pull it off the way he said it could be done.
Hilarious! Like so many absolutist Voices Of Authority, you have no understanding of the difference between "The" Future, YOUR Future, and MY Future. Speak for yourself - if you can grasp that concept.
This is a fun thread.
I like the 3 tube amps listed in your signature.
I think your a string short on your Les Paul. There will always be a need for tube amps lol. Just like us as we grow old. If they are truly musicians, they will be curious, they will want to know how that old guy got that sound in that song that their parents listened to and they will be on a mission to get it it. It’s human nature.
I think so too.
But once they realise that their Iphone 120 X with 17 lenses, does it better they will revert. After all you don't see many people lugging a main frame IBM around with them.
Seriously, I get it but I am going to quit now whilst I am WINNING the debate.
Yep, it was just a matter of time for the electric guitar to put an end to the acoustic guitar business.
It was a shame to see them go.
Centuries of innovation and craftsmanship replaced by technology in the blink of an eye.
Hopefully some acoustic guitar purists will somehow manage to keep making those antiquated instruments for the few remaining acoustic lovers.
Eventually when we as a society wake up from this woke hell cool will be cool again and amps will be back. I love modelers but part of being a guitarist is being an entertainer and big tube amps just look cool and exciting.
Well being a guitarist used to mean you were an entertainer before they cancelled having fun.
Now, try recreating that experience at night with everyone including your neighbors sleeping with a big tube rig.
DM all the way for that low volume need...it's just so good now.
When it's time to be loud and creative...yup, bring on the big toys.
Sorry man, but I have to disagree, you're not even close...
It's the A chord you want, not the E.
Unless he pees his pants and goes crying to mummy ( which is entirely possible if not probable in this day and age)
I’ve heard the word “ruck sack” four times in my life. Three of them were in this thread.
Well to be fair, in the late 80’s the tech we use today would be straight up magic. Today’s modeling tech is about as far from the ‘solid state’ stuff they were jerking around with 40yrs ago as you can get
Again, to be fair, that 412 stack can be neutered with a 20,000 watt pa. Modelers do not equal low volume just because many here run them quietly
