I have a set in my RG7421. I love them for metal tones but it's correct to say that's about it in terms of tonal versatility. They came with the guitar (bought dirt cheap second hand) so I don't feel let down by them but maybe I would have done if I had paid the full new price of £400 for them
Jackson KE1. Always wanted one since I was first into Megadeth. Only ever came across one in Polar White but I was only a little kid and couldn't afford it.
Gothic Explorer. Had the V in the past but the Explorer is the one I've always wanted
My Strat which I've had since 2000 was bought for around £350. Now they're selling for £1000, but mine is so modified it wouldn't be worth any where near that.
All my Jacksons I sold are now going for nearly three times the amount I sold them for a few years ago.
And recently, my Mark IV which...
It’s why I stayed away from the JCM2000 series for a long time. I assumed they were all like that.
We compared our amps through the same cab. His TSL60 and my Jcm900 2100, his TSL just lacked bottom end and sounded really hissy/fizzy in comparison
Not played with a 122 but in an old band I was in, the other guitarist had a TSL60 and that thing sounded awful. I've heard a lot of people say the same thing. Never heard a bad thing about the TSL100 tone though
Wouldn't surprise me if they looked at how Mesa dealt with Gibson and thought it was a good move for themselves. Brings in money for future R&D and makes them more secure. They haven't exactly been pushing the envelope or brought anything out that caught peoples attention like when they released...
Thanks Jon. If I remember right, it was you who I bought my first Powerball from years ago.
I think I may give the Marshalls a miss, I’ve heard nothing but great clips but I don’t think I want the hassle of something like a dodgy pcb.
I think after much thinking I’m going to narrow it down to...
I had the JSX about 5 years ago. When I was gigging with it I put in a set of KT77s. All I had to do was adjust the bias and it sounded glorious.
Another amp has come on the radar for a good price. EVH 5150iii 100 watt. Weren't these unreliable some what? I remember trying one out when they...
I'm on the hunt for a new amp. I'm selling my current amp (Brunetti) and looking for something that can spit fire, scare the neighbours but also not be an annoying hissy mess.
Currently, I've got these in mind:
Peavey JSX - I had one of these and loved it, so high on my list
Marshall JVM 205H...
