    Giving money to the BLM

    Next month I have to give money to the BLM (Bureau of Land Management). It will be time to pay the yearly maintenance fees for our mining claim. I wish I could find somebody that is interested in mining it. At 64 (will be 65 in November), I just can't mine it myself anymore. There is a bear...

    I got my Marshall Code 25 today.

    I got my Marshall Code 25 today. The bluetooth is almost worthless. I get it paired to my iPad Air. After I get it connected to my iPad, about 5-10 minutes the amp acts like it "times out" of the bluetooth connection. I made sure that nothing else was connected to my iPad by bluetooth. I...

    FRFR speakers

    I need something explained to me. I understand the need for a flat response speaker so that you don't color the sound of the different amp/speaker combinations. But why the hell do you need a full range? It is still a guitar being plugged into the amp/preamp/modeling whatever. I just do not...

    modeling amps and feedback

    When you crank a tube amp to right on the edge of feedback and as you turn your guitar towards the amp you get this incredibly long sustain. Are any of the modeling amps able to emulate this but at a reduced volume for home use?

    I need to start building my own cables. Commercial cables are either too long or too short. Which brands of 1/4" TS plugs and RCA plugs do you like to use? Amphenol, Neutrik, Switchcraft or a different brand? What about that brand do you like or dislike?
