    Marshall Class5 & G10 Greenback

    I know a few of you guys have dropped one of these in your C5 combo.. did you have to do any work to get it to fit? I understand it's a bit deeper than the stock speaker.

    Going through strings...

    I'm using DR DDT 12-60 to compensate for drop Bb (feels like using 10's in standard), and I am breaking one at the 4 week mark regularly. By 3 weeks they sound dead. I do play a lot, probably 10 solid hours a week, and I use .88 picks but man! I spend a lot of money on strings! Kickass tone...

    Feels like a marathon (Collecting delays)

    At Christmas I collected a bunch of giftcards to L&M.. and I've been really wanting to snag a nice delay pedal, so I went shopping. First, I play in church so the kinds of delay sounds I'm aiming for is stuff like you hear throughout this video. Warning - Christian content.. don't turn this into...

    Anybody use an EQ pedal to compensate for a tele?

    So I normally use a prs singlecut into a class 5, and ride the volumes to get all my tones. I also bring my HH tele around with me and am finding I'd like to give it a little low end hunk because I have to dial the low end down so far with the PRS. Anybody ever run a parametric (or other) EQ to...

    Rolling Tubes - Post your favs

    (Seriously, why isn't there a thread for this?) Anyways, I just picked up a grab bag of 25 tubes and am sorting them. I found some cool stuff amongst it and was wondering if anybody here had some input on them because I've never used them. There's a bunch of JAN 12ax7s, some JAN 12ax7WA's, an...

    Cool Dr Boogey pedal

    I built this pedal a few years ago and it seems to have changed hands a few times and gotten some awesome authentic battle damage along the way. I came across somebody selling it on ebay this morning and thought I'd share. Mesa Sound Dr Boogey Boogie Distortion Pedal Warzone | eBay It's...

    Anybody using a Weber Mass III or 200 with their amp?

    Some background: I just converted my jcm900 dual reverb to a tube preamp (arguably) and am about to change it over to EL34's instead of 6L6's as well, and figured why not get the most out of this thing and upgrade my attenuator too! Right now I'm using a resistor-based model I built that drops...

    Triangle muff tone

    I used a triangle muff on the lead tone on this track, but I think it could be better.. there's something in the upper mids or highs I don't like. I'm thinking of modding it to a ram's head version, but idk if that will fix it. Maybe I want a tonebender. What do you guys think? :S...

    Using a compressor as a clean channel

    Anybody do this? I saw a guitar rig video one time and the guitarist was doing this and ever since I've been running my class 5 this way.. it's really pretty ideal for a single channel amp. What you do is set the compression to pretty light and then set the compressor's volume below unity. I...

    Dad's 68 Tele

    Back in the early 70's, my dad acquired this guitar and modified it on his own (and on a student's budget, no less) with some really sweet electronics, and then he went on to tour Canada with it and pretty much play it into oblivion for the next 40 years. Well now he's given it to me and I want...

    MXR Phase 90

    Whew, just borrowed one from a buddy and it pulled this track out of me: http://ghostsauce.net/random/Class%205%20-%20Phase%2090.m4a Tele-ish guitar > Phase 90 > Class 5 on the left channel. Right has no phase, and lead has some reverb. Thinking about buying one now... but I'm about to...

    Nice little clean combo to back up the class 5?

    In the market for something roughly the size of the Class 5 to bring around with me, for hopefully $400 or less. The only thing I really care about are nice clean tone for this amp.. Reverb would be nice but if I can save a little money here I probably will. I guess 20w or under so that it's...

    BBE Green Screamer

    Anybody here tried one? I got one in a swap a few days ago and haven't really had a chance to try it out yet, but I have a germanium bufferless tube screamer that sounds great into my class 5 so I figured this would too. And if not I can mod it cause I've got a buttload of the right parts...

    Videogame music with my Class 5

    So, I do animation for videogames for a living and I've been doing music lately as well... It's a small operation and I hardly have a professional setup, but that's besides the point. Anyway, today I used my Class 5 and I am really happy with the way it turned out! (This music will be looped...

    Biasing with an improperly fused DMM

    Sounds bad right? But will it blow the amp or the multimeter or both if something goes wrong? My multimeter takes a .2A / 250V fuse, and I'm about to replace it with a .315A / 250V fuse... using a bias probe to take a reading in mA. Now, to me it sounds like if something goes wrong it could...

    The elusive Dr Boogey pedal

    Anyone here build/own one? Pedal demo - DBU-28 Bunker Buster (Dr Boogey) - YouTube This is similar to the one I built for myself but I did a few other things to it, and it sounds even better through a good amp. I use it with my class 5 and I am in love. Anyway, I'm just wondering if...

    JJ EL844 + Class 5

    So we all know the Class 5 comes with a JJ EL84.. I love the amp and tone I get but as I only play in churches, most of the time it doesn't get cranked as high as I would prefer. So I ordered an 844 and plugged it in today -- hardly any volume difference to speak of (as expected), but wow...
