    EL84 amp owners: have you tried the Dr Z/Trainwreck 6n14n?

    I've got a set in my Friedman WW20 and they sound GREAT. Brighter, perhaps, and punchier than the JJ's.

    San Dimas - How slinky is too slinky?

    Thank you! That's really interesting, few other friends mentioned the Opitwebs. I'm using Super Slinky 9-42 right now. Over the last 15ish years I moved from those 9's to the hybrid slinky 9-46 set. But I went back to 9's on this guitar for the Eb tuning because 80's, right? But I want to...

    The broad (and fantastic) range of responses here really back that up!

    I think you have opportunity by the tail there, sir!

    San Dimas - How slinky is too slinky?

    Yeah, no, I caught it the first time. I would have slung it back if you weren't on to something. :)

    San Dimas - How slinky is too slinky?

    Ok, yeah, I should have commented on that part - the axe has never sounded as good as it does right now. Part of why I've been making an effort to adapt to it. And outrageous 80's vibrato is pretty effortless. But doublestops are landing sour more often, for sure.

    San Dimas - How slinky is too slinky?

    I recently resetup my San Dimas with 9's tuned down a half step. I was using 9's before and I knew it would get a little looser feeling but woha, it's looooose at Eb. Not too much so, but on the edge of too much so if you know what I mean. After a few weeks with it I've grown to like it, most...

    JJ Jr with two Friedman 2x12 cabs?

    Wow - that must have been quite a stack! I used to run two 2x12's but I eventually went to a single 4x12 for my 20w Friedman.

    JJ Jr with two Friedman 2x12 cabs?

    MetalheadMike is right, you can run two 16ohm cabs (with the switch at 8ohms) on the JJ jr but two 8 ohm cabs will present 4ohms to the output transformer. I've heard there is a unused 4ohm tap on the transformer, you could ask Dave to rewire it for you. Or you could make a little box with...

    WOW! Crazy nice. I'll give you my neighbor's kids - both of them.

    Recommendations Needed for High gain amp and cab

    Hard tones to get with small bottles, but the Friedman PT-20 sounds HUGE and nails that type of driven marshal hard rock / light metal. You could get a used PT-20 and quality 4x12 for under $2k. You would crap yourself. Assuming a local cab find, that is. Those are crazy expensive to ship. I...

    Good god @DistortED ! Thank you for giving me a sense of what that scheme looks like in the Candy Apple Blue. And thank you for blowing my damn mind - that's an insane axe. Is that a custom shop? Woah. Actually, should I even bother at this point? I think you won the blue Charvel contest -...

    NGD! White (modded by me) Charvel USA!

    Right on!! Yep, exactly the plan. Maybe the 1984 OFR. I've been trying to visualize it - appreciate the positive feedback. Think these would work? (link) '08! Nice!! Holy grail year!
