    What are you using for a volume boost in the loop?

    I need something for a few dbs of boost for leads. I was using a 10-band EQ but got tired of the sliders shifting when transporting the board around. I could get a simple Micro Amp but looking to see what's out there that is more interesting or does something I didn't know I needed. I was...

    Was NAMM a total bust this year?

    I haven't seen much hubbub on NAMM this year. There's some talk about the Two Notes revolt preamp thing, which seems like a cool toy, and AmpX is still causing a commotion although it's still vaporware at this point. I haven't seen much talk at all otherwise. A lot fo big players pulled out...

    What amps are in the new Decapitated music video?

    Glowing "V" logo, but I can't make out much.

    Shure GLXD vs SLXD

    I bought a Shure GLXD16 tuner/wireless about a year ago, and it’s served me well. I was going to go grab the rack version, GLXD14, and apparently they’ve recently been discontinued. I emailed Shure to see what the replacement might be, and was suggested the SLXD14. But checking out the...

    What strap locks are worth a damn?

    I had Schallers for years but got annoying with tightening the nut and how it made the strap sit oddly far from the guitar. I went to Loxx for awhile but one day one of those little nipples sheared off, so I don't trust them anymore. I've been using rubber gaskets for the past couple years...

    Say something bad about the Shure GLXD16 wireless

    Talk me out of spending 500 bucks on this thing.

    Who's make affordable but quality snakes?

    I'm trying to get four channels TS from board to amp, plus a 120v if possible. I never really liked the Pedal Snake style where you have a bunch of changeable ends, and it's priced a little high. If I can find a snake, that'd be perfect, otherwise I'll just bundle up some cables in a Pedal...

    Is a G Major 2 still the best buy for rack fx?

    Just looking for my best option for rack reverb and delay that’s simple to program and be affordable. I’m surprised nobody has come out with a 1U rack effect for a decent price in the past decade.

    Who's making the best Kemper packs for high gain?

    I finally snagged a Kemper and want to start out the gate with some A+ quality profiles. It should be here in a couple days. I don't mind spending a little bit of cash. I definitely need Recto patches and Mark IV, both DI for use with a guitar cab, and studio for recording. I guess I could...

    Tell me why the Kemper sucks

    I have a handful of great amps that all basically do one thing. I’ve been on a hunt for a 3+ channel amp to cover more ground, and off some of the shit I have sitting around. I just haven’t found the right amp. I’m considering just going with a powered Kemper, direct profiling my amps for...

    Give me amp gas. 3-channel, 2203 flavored but modern?

    I adore my JMP2204 and Suhr RL combo for like 90% of my tonal needs. Fantastic cleans, medium gain is the sound of rock n roll, and with an OD808 it’s the sound of thrash. I haven’t had strong GAS for an amp in a long time, but as I get away from modelers for the sake of simplicity, I’d like...

    Favorite Greenback IR?

    I have a bunch of Ownhammer stuff but haven’t explored too much from other companies. I love the OH Mesa IRs for heavy guitars, but I need something more in the Greenback world. The OH options I have are good, but I want to test the waters. RedWirez, ML, 3 Signa are all names I’ve seen...

    Talk to me about Forte style 2x12s

    I've been considering going back to a vertical 2x12, loading my typically mic'd speaker (Vintage 30) on the bottom, and something that's slightly less piercing on the top, maybe a Creamback H75. I would get the partially removable back, because sometimes I do play house shows and other small...

    Avatar went all black?

    You apparently can't choose telex and grill cloth to suite your amps or anything anymore. I could understand a cost factor of having all that material around, but dang that doesn't seem like the best business move since that was a major appeal of going with Avatar. They've been doing custom...

    I just want an affordable 2204 with a small footprint.

    I want a 50w JCM800 in a small 19" or less headshell (to fit on a vertical 2x12), with an at least usable master volume when stage boys tell me turn down. I have a JMP2204 and it's master absolutely neuters the amp. I wouldn't mind being a touch hotrodded or something like Fargen's decade...

    Does anybody know what casters are used on Framus cabinets?

    I bought a used Framus cab that has pop-in caster bases, but not sure which will fit.

    Smooth speaker for versatile open back 1x12

    I have a open back 1x12 cabinet and want a versatile speaker for overdriven and clean tones, but simultaneously smooth and mid-present. It will be paired with a Bad Cat Hot Cat 50w with EL34s. It currently has a standard Vintage 30, not the Bad Cat version V30, which I’m not a fan of alone. I...

    So, what high gain pedals are the real deal?

    I am 100% an amplifier guy when it comes to high gain. I want everything from the tubes, and generally prefer not even using a boost unless it's a more oldschool flavored Marshall or something. But, what if you can only carry a pedalboard and use an unpredictable backline? What pedal would...
