    Seeing the Eagles tonight in SF

    Enjoy! Saw them way back in 2002; one of the best live shows ever.

    Can you use a Bogner 101B XTC head w/a 100 watt Marshall cab without blowing something ?

    It’s not about need my friend. It’s about what crushing volume does to those poor crying Celestions…pushing a tube amp/speaker cab to its limits is a beautiful thing. If only for a short time anyway.

    To be safe I would run 2 cabs. I did run my 72 SuperTrem through the 72 Pulsonic cab very briefly to hear it alone but for like 10 seconds…didn’t blow anything but since then I’ve either run it with my G12 65 cab alone or together with the 72 cab. I’d be on the safe side with vintage speakers...

    Beginner gear...

    I’m thinking a newer Fender Bassman combo; they’re cheap enough and she could just hit it with a boost pedal for some dirt with guitar. A few on GC used for 150-250. My experience has been guitar amps don’t do very well with Bass; while Bass amps with a pedal can sound decent enough for guitar.

    Deal of the day: 1960BV cabinet from Sweetwater: 625 bucks

    I usually only play slants since I need to hear myself best playing out. I owned many B cabs (still have one, the 83) but playing out I’d always end up setting the amp on a chair and tilt the B cab upwards lol…too much hassle so slants for me

    Deal of the day: 1960BV cabinet from Sweetwater: 625 bucks

    I’d keep the 79. These older Marshall cabs sound great and are very consistent ime. The newer ones seem to be more hit/miss.

    Deal of the day: 1960BV cabinet from Sweetwater: 625 bucks

    Sheesh. Sure am glad I have my Marshall cab needs covered with my 72, 74, 79 and 1983 cabs. Oh, I did find Minty Mesa Traditional slant with hang tags for 699 not too long ago. Good time to be a seller, bad time to be a buyer.

    Question for the low wattage amp guys here about playing those things

    I have a 1972 Marshall. Sounds great on 0. With a pedal. I also have an F Triple. Also sounds great on .00001. No pedal necessary. Bonus….they can also destroy small towns with volume; if needed.

    Heads up on the newer Boss SD-1

    Waza is a great SD1 and every bit as good as the older MIJ versions; I have an 86. The MIT version sounds a little less dynamic maybe but they get the job done. This new version, sounds like it might be an improvement over the MIT version. Might have to try one

    Should a $3000 guitar come with a case?

    I agree with everyone else…absolutely should come with a case. No excuse imo esp when you can buy one for 60 bucks shipped…no it’s not a G&G but it will get the job done protecting in shipping from the dealer/seller.

    Random NAD

    Those knobs look like the Crate Stealth knobs so I’m gonna bet this is a Lee Jackson amp. He worked with SLM designing the Stealth and Ampeg VLs. If it’s popping fuses it might be a bad EL34..throw another pair in and see.

    !!!!!CRAZY DEAL ALERTS!!!!!

    Heads up on the newer Boss SD-1

    You should be able to find an older MIT version to mod. They are everywhere.

    Question for the high wattage amp guys here about playing at home

    You still have your 67 plexi correct? You're still a part of the big boy club.

    Anyone see Kansas Live?

    Fantastic live. Saw them back in the early 90s, Morse is unreal. Mr Walsh may be the most underrated vocalist to come out of the 70s.
