    VHT 2150 Bias Question

    Please forgive me in advance if this question seems newbish. I’m not a tech savvy guy. So I got recently a 2150 and want to now try out some of my various vintage 6550’s I’ve got in it. I know how to bias amps (have done it many times now), but am just trying to be more cautious now when I do it...

    Blackback Advice

    So I’m considering giving blackbacks a shot and wanted to ask which version you guys like best? I didn’t actually like the way they sounded in the comparison clips I’ve heard of them vs other stuff, but I know a lot of guys here (including Larry) really love them, so wanna give them a chance. I...

    SOLD: 1995 Naylor SuperDrive 60

    Here’s a 1995 Naylor SuperDrive 60. What you see in my pics is the chassis from the 212 combo it came in. I’ve always had it outside like this because it was just too much of a pain to carry around as a bulky 212. I’ve got also 2017 SD 100 head I’ll be selling (lots of great gear that I gotta...

    SOLD: 1979 Marshall JMP2203

    Here’s a 1979 JMP2203 in quite good shape for its age. You can see from the pics it’s been modded in the past, but is totally stock now and had my tech go through it a year ago to make sure all is good with it (one of the best techs in the country in my opinion). The red light on the powerswitch...

    McInturff Glory Standard

    Here’s a McInturff Glory in Tiger Eye finish. It has lots of dings, scratches and wear as you can see in the pics and so is priced accordingly.

    Selling my Carolina Custom. It has some little dings and wear that you can see in the pics, mainly on the back and the edge of the headstock, but otherwise in great shape.

The body & neck is all carbon fiber and the the fretboard, frets and nut is all stainless steel. Weighs just 6.05 lbs and sounds very tight, punchy and even. Wasn’t...

    NPD: Fortin modded Maxon OD808

    So I bought this pedal just to scratch that itch since I wanna try them all and am surprisingly impressed. Was expecting to just try it, sell it and move on, but it’s looking to actually be a keeper along with the 5 other boosts I’ve kept (of over 140 boosts I’ve been through). Besides this...

    So according to their website Naylor’s like my 2017 SD100 should be able to take EL34’s or 6550’s. For those who’ve tried it, do I just simply put the tubes in and set the bias pot within the recommend numbers range on the website or is there anything additional that needs to be done? I’ve tried...

    So the other day I was in a bit of a hurry (had an appointment to go to) and was turning on my Naylor SD100 for a very quick run before leaving and accidentally put the speaker cable into one of the fx loop jacks rather than the speaker ones. I was like why is there no sound and quickly caught...
