    Cab to pair with 5150 iii 50?

    This is very true. I was digging my EVH 6l6 50 watt but it wasn't until I dropped the presence to 9 o'clock and treble below noon that it started to sing. Also with this amp, I can have the mids up way higher than where I normally put them.

    OMFG White Lion is stuck in my head…

    Like a lot if others here, I grew up to hair metal. I was about 14 when Crue and Ratt got huge and then watched Dokken, Loudness, T.N.T, etc get big. Then hair metal started becoming huge and mainstream. Around that time, 87-88 you got the next wave with White Lion and then Warrant, etc. I was...

    OMFG White Lion is stuck in my head…

    I remember years ago reading about how he jacked up his wrist playing classical guitar while laying down or something like that.

    Finally put a deposit down on a chubtone

    Dude, you will not be disappointed. I got mine about a year ago and I swear I don't think I have had to tune it. It never goes out of tune and blows my mind. Lol. Just remember that they get super busy so he doesn't do a lot of answering questions, etc. I have known Curt since the mid 2000s and...

    JCM800 style dirt pedals

    I really dig my Keeley El Rey Dorado but I think it is based on Robert's own Maeshall Plexi. Could be an 800 though. I've heard great things about the Friedman Smallbox too.

    Suhr Doug Aldrich pickups question for those who use them.

    I had a 2008 Gibson Standard and put one of those in the bridge. My band did classic rock up to hard rock and metal and o could cover them all. Such a singing, sweet tone from the Aldrich and not what people would expect.

    Recording software for an idiot

    I have used Reaper for years and don't even know what a "bus" is with recording, etc. I use the basics and haven't delved into all of the things it can do. I keep it simple. At $50 you can't go wrong and condtant updates. I do recordings just for fun and can keep it cheap and simple. I...

    FBF: Post your favorite flashback bands!

    I've often wondered where that feel came out of when they did those two albums and makes more sense now. I bet James was getting so into their music and burned out on the full on metal that he used C.O.C. as a template.

    Anyone own a Shure SM7B? How big of an improvement does a mic make?

    I actually got a mic pre boost that they say works really well and only $30

    BE-100 Deluxe Plexi channel vs Smallbox ??

    I always imagined that Dave kind of did the Smallbox with that channel as the focus and then felt like he needed to add the other one because people would be requesting it. Although Friedman's are going to have similar DNA, I've always loved that Dave doesn't really do a lot of duplicating with...

    Anyone own a Shure SM7B? How big of an improvement does a mic make?

    Still a good mic but would love to have something that translates my voice better

    Anyone own a Shure SM7B? How big of an improvement does a mic make?

    It is the AT1 I think it is called? It was part of a starter kit. It is ok but picks up sound way beyond the immediate space and is a bit "crisp"

    Anyone own a Shure SM7B? How big of an improvement does a mic make?

    About two years ago I started doing vocals on my songs and just had grabbed a Rode microphone kit. It has been a great tool for recordings but obviously a mic around the $100 range isn't going to compare with a more expensive one. I get a lot of background sounds bleeding thru with the Rode but...
