    New smaller PB needed

    Hi. Even though there's a sticky, a lot of the posts are older so maybe there is something newer on the market? I have my fancy schmancy Temple Audio 24 but I am thinking I need a smaller travel one. Fer instance I have an audition tonight or for practice where all I really need is another...

    Road cases for amp head

    I'm starting to think a soft case is more than sufficient for my needs. I have a roll of bubbles that I may use this weekend for the ride down in the truck :)

    Gripped tone knobs

    Hey all as I get used to my LP after years of playing Fender and Ibbys I find it hard to quickly and easily grab the volume tone caps. I saw pictures of tone knobs with rubber grips if you will. It seems that it is only the Ibanez knobs that have this. I am willing to by a couple of knobs so I...

    Road cases for amp head

    So I figure since I dropped a small fortune (relatively speaking) on my Friedman head just carrying it from gig to gig with no protection is a foolish idea. It's not going to be traveling by air, truck or sea just by me gig to gig. I know a guy at Whirlwind who is going to spec out a case for it...

    Friedman DS40 just stopped working?!?

    Thanks all, it was simple but a little detective work was done and in fact it was the pre-amp tube! Alls well that ends well!

    Friedman DS40 just stopped working?!?

    Understood. At the very least the way the guy is set up I can watch him do the troubleshooting and might well learn something so that I can do it in the future. I also have a friend that lives and breathes this stuff, but for a first time repair I'll take it to the approved tech first. Then...

    Friedman DS40 just stopped working?!?

    Dave Friedman was good enough to write me back with his troubleshooting method. I will be dropping it off to the amp tech I use and let him mess with it so I don't F' it up :D

    Friedman DS40 just stopped working?!?

    Thanks. Both fuses are intact so if it's the rectifier tube it will have to be someone else fixing it. And after a year of owning it I finally have a gig coming up. I'd better be able to use it or I shall be an unhappy camper!

    Friedman DS40 just stopped working?!?

    All tubes are glowing, fuse is intact. I tried turning all the knobs and oddly enough the only sound I got was when I turned the presence knob I got a scratching sound through the speaker.

    Friedman DS40 just stopped working?!?

    HELP! My DS40 does not seem to want to play. First I should say it is at home and has not moved an inch. I played it yesterday all was fine. I keep the volume way down. The first thing I did was make sure the pedalboard was working. Then I checked the speaker connections. Then I isolated the...

    Which band to join?

    The band was building a following 3 years ago and disbanded as I understand because a couple of members wanted to go more classic rock. Another leading southern rock style band is getting long in the tooth now so this band hopes to take that place in so far as go to southern rock gigs. I have...

    Which band to join?

    I understand what you're saying and I would tend to agree with you, but surprisingly enough the old stuff remains popular around here.

    So keep your name on the guest list or not? :run:

    Which band to join?

    If I could sing and play too we probably wouldn't be having this conversation because at that point it would be MY band and everyone else "hired guns" :)

    Which band to join?

    I can tell you this. I feel like I have a limited vocabulary. I can play my limited vocabulary over a wide variety of styles and more or less fit in. But one fear is that this particular band, as talented as they are, I would be playing the same thing over and over without a break in musical...
