    The best 5150 ever made?

    I have three 5150 but the first 50w Peavey Combo was the best. The Block/Signature comes second on par with the Stealth 100 that is a beast. I also have the EL34S that is a different iteration but it's too nasal for my ear.

    Tube or modeling amp for regular gigging?

    To me the difference from real amps and modellers lies in the feel with the instrument: most guitarists talk a lot about dynamics but modellers flatten my playing a lot, so much so that I have a hard time switching from modeller to real amplifier that becomes more difficult for me. Therefore I...

    Tone you don't like but works for bands you love

    Pantera. That guitar tone alone would be terrible in every other context.

    Langner pre-amp

    I have one and it's a beast, more gain than you'll ever use: pair it with delay and you have sustain for days: it has one of the best lead sounds out of my amps. It's a two channel preamp with a boosted lead channel but there's a pot on the back that you can use to also have a crunch sound...

    Jackson PC1..Thoughts?

    I've had one for years but sold it because I never used it. From a construction point of view it is an exceptional guitar and comes from the factory with a perfect setting. The neck is quartersawn but although my hands are not large I felt comfortable with it because the fretboard is quite...

    SLO vs. the ripoff Rev C Dual Recto- Have you actually played them both?

    I have the SLO, the Recto, 5150 and two 5153 (6L6 and EL34) and i must say that the blue channel of the 5153 6L6 is the most similar to lead channel of the SLO. That said, all the 3 amps above sound different. Small changes in the layout could do huge difference in sound. In fact I tried the...

    New Bogner Uberschall coming?

    Although I have an Uberschall and I can say that I like it a lot, I hope the new version improves it in those little aspects that don't make me prefer it over other amps: volume jump between channels, overall sponginess and other.

    Pre-amp tubes life span

    Hello, according to some people you must change 12ax7 tubes every two or three times you change the power tubes. I read on a site that their life span cannot be determined and could be almost infinite so that they could be changed only when you want to change the tone of the (pre)amplifier...
