    EL34's & screen voltage

    I reached out to TAD about what EL34's they'd recommend for an amp that sits around 520V at the plates w/the screens around the same. I don't know the exact screen reading, but it's on an older modded Marshall and I've always heard Marshall screen voltages tend to only be a few volts below the...

    Rebel Yell vs Garuda

    I know the MCP Garuda very well and like it quite a bit, but the Rebel Yell is one that has interested off and on over the years. Have any of you all compared a Rebel Yell and Garuda in the same guitar? Bonus points if it was in a single cut style guitar. What I'm basically wondering: - Which...

    Reamp ground loop issue

    Hey, you all. I'm brand new to reamping and have been getting some ground loop hum. The noise floor is of a similar volume level to plugging straight into the amp, but when I have it set up to reamp I get this underlying ground loop hum. I've exhausted everything I know to try, so figured I'd...

    Favorite Flying V pickups

    Inspired by the current Flying V thread, I thought I'd post a thread to see what pickups you all like in your V's. I find they're sometimes a little more particular about pickups than your typical super strat or single cut. Here are some I've tried over the years that I thought were good: MCP...

    FT: MCP Detroiter for a 2nd dbb

    I have a MCP Detroiter bridge pickup I’m looking to trade. It’s 50mm spacing, short leg, 4 conductor, and it has plenty of lead left on it. It works fine with no issues. I will get more pictures tomorrow after I remove it. I’m looking for an uncovered MCP 2nd Degree Black Belt bridge pickup. It...

    Tell me about the Scumback BM75-LD...

    Just like the title says, what’s the story on these? There is a clip on YouTube with it compared to a G12-65 and both sound great, but the BM75-LD had something to it I really liked. Do these hold up well with fast riffing and lots of gain? Do the hold together tuned to D and drop C?

    Mesa Rectifier Multiwatt?

    It’s been 19 years since I’ve owned a rectifier, and I’m considering checking out a multiwatt. I’m mainly curious about the loop and volume. I can play loud where I’m at, but I do prefer something that can sound good at manageable levels too. - Can these sound good at bedroom level and does...

    Greenbacks: reissue and heritage/evh

    I've done some digging on these speakers and have a general understanding on the difference with these speakers. I feel like I run across more posts with players favoring the reissue. That said, I'm wondering if there is anyone here who has compared these speakers while playing something like a...

    MCP Nasty Nasty in a strat?

    Hey, have any of you tried a Nasty Nasty in an alder strat of some sort? I have one and have had it in a couple of LP’s but never a strat. I’ve been thinking of swapping it in my super strat, but i’m wondering if anyone here already has and what your thoughts were? Was it too tight in a strat or...

    Motor City Hellbaby clip

    The past few months I've been on a pickup swap rampage revisiting ones I have in my stash that I haven't played in a while. The most recent one has been the Motor City Hellbaby. It's such a great pickup. Tonally it's a very balanced pickup with lots of clarity and string separation for a hot...

    Running a load and cab simultaneously?

    In situations where you need/want to play loud and you have an amp that pushes more than a speaker cab can handle, have any of you all ever ran one of the amp’s speaker outputs to a load and another output to a cab so as to reduce the wattage to the cab? Any reason this wouldn’t work? Would the...

    Telefunken M80 & M81 Mic Comparison

    I've had the Telefunken M80 and M81 about a year now and I have to say they're really great mics. Definitely worth checking out if you're looking for a different flavor dynamic. The M81 is warm with an open mid range. There's a little dip in the upper mids and a slight raise in the presence...
