    WTB - Metropoulos 100W Head

    Looking to buy a Metropoulos 100W head, either a JTM45/100 "Super 100" or 10,000 / 12,000 Series. Not looking for a kit, but one built by George. Cash in hand.

    Pre-NAD Sundragon Standard

    After lurking for a long, long time I finally pulled the trigger and ordered the Sundragon Standard amp from Mitch Colby. I'm beyond excited, so much so I had to post a pre-NAD NAD post. They reached out to me and let me know it would more than likely be done before the 12 week build period. So...

    1959HW Shrill Issue

    So I just got my 2020 Marshall 1959HW head back from warranty repair. I was playing, and suddenly the sound cut out. Broken / low volume. I checked the fuses, swapped the tubes, then took it to repair, thinking it was a PT or OT or something. When I picked it up, the guys at the shop told me it...

    Marshall 1959HW Preamp Tube Blown

    EDIT: Fixed. Was the ECC83 in V1. Playing my 1959HW today and the volume suddenly dropped. Testing the amp, the Normal Channel seems to be fine but the Hi Treble makes no noise. Is it safe to assume this is a preamp tube? Or is something else possibly at play?

    Almost NAD - 1959HW & 1960AHW

    I’ve been on a bit of an amp quest the last few years, originally migrating from Marshall to Supro, then a slew of other amps, searching for my Holy Grail tone. Well, I’ve ended up back where I started. Walked into GC two weeks ago and found this beauty and I was smitten. Things have been on...

    Think we take this tone thing a little too far?

    Do you guys ever feel like you're chasing the tone a little too hard, and that it negatively effects your playing? I feel that a lot of the classic tones we're chasing after were created simply because an artist picked up a guitar, plugged into an amp, and went "That sounds good. Cool" and...

    Master Volume Amps & Usable Volumes

    Let's say I have two identical amps. One is 100W, the other is 18W. Both have a high quality PPIMV. Skipping past the argument if I need a 100W amp in the first place...Could I get the same, usable Bedroom / Recording volumes out of each? I know this is inherently a stupid question and a very...

    Who likes em' Big?

    Pedals and effects that is. Idk why, but I find myself gravitating towards the bigger pedals lately. Not that there's anything wrong with MXR/Boss sized pedals or even the mini pedals. But I really enjoy the look of a full sized Tonebender, a hefty delay box or a big ol' wah. Anyone prefer the...

    NAD - Marshall 1974X Handwired

    A guy that I often trade / sell gear with offered me a killer deal on a 1974X Handwired Combo and I couldn't turn him down. Got it today, plugged it in, cranked it up... and I played so good the neighbors called the cops to come listen. No Joke. Amazing amp, super stoked. Looks great with my...

    Hey Guys, I just bought a Rx Effects Yardbox and I love it. But I was wondering if anyone had a manual, or any documentation for it. I understand that Prescription Effects isn't around anymore and I can't find a manual anywhere. Thanks in advance.

    Marshall Studio Vintage Speaker Swap

    Anyone swapped out speakers on their Studio Vintage yet? I had the rare chance to play a JTM45/100 Re-issue yesterday. It was an earth leveling, mind blowing experience. Really liked the openness and dynamics and the clarity. I know part of that has to do with the Alnico speakers in the cabs...

    Guitar Straps

    What straps are you guys using with your Historics? Any advice on what I should buy? Preferably one that would help relieve weight / pressure on the shoulder / back when playing.

    Keeley DDR!

    I ordered two Keeley DDR’s the day they came out and just received them. I have to say that these are sick! Super versatile and sound great. Vintage and modern reverb, Delay, and two drive pedals in one.

    Marshall Studio Vintage High Treble -- Too High Treble?

    Hey Guys, I'm going to post a NAD soon with pics of my new Marshall Studio Vintage 20 Combo which I absolutely adore, but until then, I have a quick question to any SV20H or C owners. I know that Marshall's are known for their pronounced treble, but I feel like the High Treble input on the...
