    can i connect my engl e530 preamp to a PA monitor?

    Great advice here. I gigged a 530 for a little while about 15 years ago (until I upgraded to the 570 SE pre), and I found it needed a warm tube power amp to tame some of the top end sizzle and give it some low end punch. I wouldn't have wanted to run it straight into the board, but that was in...

    PRS into a Dual & Mini Rectifier (the 'nu metal' sound)

    Beautiful SC58! I had a Stripped 58 for several years, and it was a great one, too. I prefer the bigger necks on these. Congrats on scoring such a fine axe! Nice tones on your video. The 57/08s are very versatile pickups, as I'm sure you've already figured out. The do low gain stuff well, too.

    UPS broke a 2:90 I shipped.

    I hate to say it, but UPS probably won't pay on the claim. They have an exclusion clause in their insurance for electronics. It's complete BS, because they accept your money when you buy the insurance, but then you get nothing. Sorry this happened to you, OP.

    I can't believe I just bought a Boss dirt pedal

    Let me get this out of the way first - I'm a tone snob, like many of you here. I've owned a stable of boutique amps from all the big names, and also Marshalls modded by Dave Friedman, Mike Fortin, Voodoo, etc. I've played just about every dirt pedal made and rejected most of them as unworthy. I...

    Hello RT!!! Long time, eh? I've been out of it for a while. I went back to school to get a Master's degree, and now I have it. Gotta get back into da brootalz. What's been going on here? I see nobody has burned the place to the ground yet, so that's a good sign. I've been jamming my Kemper...

    SOLD - Sonic Research Turbo Tuner ST-200

    SOLD. Hey gang, I have two Turbo Tuners, and I don't need both. The first is on my board, and this one has been sitting in the box as a backup, but these pedals are tanks. I don't foresee the need for a second one, so I'm letting this one go. This one is in mint/new condition, and comes with...

    Vintage gear prices are only going lower

    Don't you think? As the number of vintage players dies off and our numbers continue to decline, the demand should continue to drop. I read an article earlier this year about Elvis memorabilia. It used to be a rock-solid (no pun intended) investment, but now shit is getting only half what it...

    New Fortin Pedal Day!

    I just got my Fortin Fredrik Thordendal sig 33 pedal and it is AMAZING! :rock: I dunno why it's called the '33'. It gives 22 dB boost and that special EQ to give your dirty amp that classic Fortin grindy tone. It cuts the low mids and boosts the high mids and the highs so you cut through...

    Have you ever bought a piece of gear (or at least been noticeably influenced to) due to its name? Be honest. Now I realize the gear had to be at least decent or you wouldn't lay money down for it, but something has to get your attention. Or, have you decided not to even look into a piece of...

    New Gig Rig

    Here's the new gig rig. It's a far cry from the days when I gigged with two heads, two cabs, and a monster sized pedalboard. I've got all my amps profiled in here and use many of them at gigs now. My tone has never been better.

    EDIT: IT'S HERE!!!! I just have to get my ass home and unpack it! I sold my Kemper lunchbox head last year before the move, and I thought I would be out of playing guitar for awhile. WRONG! Thanks to a timely tax refund, I now have a new Kemper rack heading my way. Woohoo!
