    Axefx AX8 - still worth it in 2022?

    I've had the Ax8 since it first came out. I currently gig mainly with my Splawn Competition, and have 3 Splawns (no Quick Rod though) . I've found my programming of the Splawn was 1 of my favorites on the ax8. My favorite though was the Atomica. I did NOT even come close to using stock...

    Favorite speakers for Splawn amps?

    That went on my early Street Rod too.. I screwed up the repair, but luckily a local tech fixed it easily :) Glad you were able to do it. Very cheap fix Eric

    Jose preamp

    I have 1 (different knobs though) that I bought straight from Ossie. . I'd sell it for 200.00 if anyone was interested, but couldn't ship til after Memorial Day Weekend. I have wayyyyyy too much gear. It sounds great into a power amp (definitely best played loud, or really killer into my Nux...

    What’s wrong with my Blackback speaker?

    No kidding, I'll see if mine has the vent. I used to have G12-80's with the Vent also. Thanks for the info Eric

    What’s wrong with my Blackback speaker?

    I still have 1 of those Marshall Vintage Speakers. Love them. They preceeded the V30 if I remember right? I'm all set too, but I'm gonna keep that one! Eric

    What’s wrong with my Blackback speaker?

    Hey if I was you I'd stick with those ultimate cabinets you have and not worry about any more! lol... I'm going to sell a few of mine as although I collected them for years, I just tend to use the same ones at all my gigs. I definitely wasn't insinuating Naylor was screwing anyone either...

    What’s wrong with my Blackback speaker?

    So yea your slants/speakers were different than mine.. . Off topic, but I can't help but to have noticed the 2021 Naylor sd60 in your signature as incoming.. Is this really still incoming? It's been awhile right? Keep in mind I got my 30 watter blackback slant in about 1980-1981. I was...

    What’s wrong with my Blackback speaker?

    There's also 55 hz , and 75hz H magnet (30 watter) Blackbacks and M magnet, 25 watters. . Mine were the 30 watters , 75hz. Eric

    What’s wrong with my Blackback speaker?

    Is this a 4x12? Are the handles plastic or metal? My handles in my 70's Marshall 4x12 ended up rattling since they were plastic and old, and I needed to replace. Also make sure it's definitely not a dirty jack. Other than that, if definitely the speakers, you'll have to isolate and...

    What’s wrong with my Blackback speaker?

    Not my experience, but 1 Blackback doesn't equal another Blackback. . .I had 4 30 watt Blackbacks in my late 70's Marshall 4x12, and they were absolutely great at all volumes but too bright for me. Of course I could hear back then. . haha. . I got it in the mid 80's probably and ended up...

    Quickrod Issue with tone at higher volume

    To be honest, it didn't matter if the EQ was in front of the amp, or in the fx loop (for eq'ing) If someone wanted to use it for a solo boost, it definitely needs to be in a loop, but all my Splawns have the best solo boost feature already. I'd just experiment and see what works best for...

    Quickrod Issue with tone at higher volume

    Well I followed up this 'experiment' today with my Mini Competition and it acted totally differently than the Super Comp. As I bring the VOL up from scratch, it retains the SAME tone, whereas the SUper Comp's lo-end/resonance takes over that sweet hi-end that's at up to 8:00. I did find I can...

    Quickrod Issue with tone at higher volume

    I have 3 Splawns (no Quick Rod) . I had read your post last week, and thought to myself I don't ever play that low-volume with mine, and I have no clue what he's talking about, but tonight for fun I played my SuperComp (it's a 50 watter with el34's) at low volumes . At first when you crack the...
