    What 5 Production Amps would you buy if you won the lottery?

    Nada. Got every amp I could ever dream of wanting - and have been through all the others. Zero GAS. None.

    NAD VHT Deliverance 120

    Many players could save many amps and many thousands of dollars if they'd just try a D60 or D120 right off the bat. VERY underrated amps. And VERY killer. Congratz!

    Yo Monkey man, can we flag necros so dumbasses like me...

    One thing necro-bumps offer me is the fact my opinion on matters hasn't changed much if at all over the course of the last 13 years. Kinda funny to read a NB and get into it - oblivious of the date it got re-upped - only to formulate an answer to the thread aaaaaaaaaaand... ...then see I'd...

    New XTC & Preamp tubes

    I actually kinda puckered when I saw all the tube prices going ape-shit. Then I went into my storage shelves... Ya, I've not looked at tubes online since then. I'm good for, oh, probably 50 years of playing without worrying about glass.

    Favorite stoner metal riffs?

    Been enjoying Uncle Acid & The Deadbeats and this kinda seriously hard-hitting 60s 70s acid raunch vibe lately. Just great to hear hard slop stoner goodness blasting the airwaves nowadays, least for me.

    Help with red plating VH4

    Did you flick the chassis switch to 6L6?? And 65mA is for PAIRS of tubes, not singular.

    So, what do you guys do for a living?

    Super early retirement from my professional foray Now? Working with clinical integration of entheogens in new therapies for a host of shitty ailments people can lose if they're so inclined to do so. Cutting edge medicine. Slowly SLOWLY getting recognized and approved piece by piece by the...

    What's a great Riff Raff type pickup for double cut guitars into a VH4?

    I found the VH4 didn't dig a lot of other high-output pups... But the RYs are different - in all aspects - they work AMAZINGLY well with my VH4 - in addition to my Hagen, D-Moll, Shiva and XTC. My main amps. Like I said - I've outfitted 3 of my top Lesters with RYs - why?? They really show...

    The new Gibson guitar...

    Just tapping into a prospective rehash of a fashionable re-trend - the "Incense and Peppermint" 60s vibe. It's taking hold in a lot of other markets - so I see how Gibby would wanna do this as well. Everything cycles every 30-40 years, so... maybe this is a 30x2 years attempt at rekindling...

    What's a great Riff Raff type pickup for double cut guitars into a VH4?

    3 Les Pauls now. Started with my No.2 player. Then I installed a set in my No.3 Then I went head and tried another set in my No.1 I love them. SUPER sensitive to pup/pole-piece height adjustment, extremely versatile with pot controls, and they just sound perfect through all my amps and for...
