Re: Guitar/Bass Amps - roll call.

I love my Tech-21 Trademark. It's a really good sounding solid state amp. For quiet home use only. All my dirt pedals sound great through the Fender channel which is important as I have dozens of fuzzes and such. Get a good full sound at comfortable level. Can't say much about it at uncomfortable levels. It doesn't go all that loud I think.

I keep considering one of those low watt tube heads like the Orange Tiny Terror. Even those are pretty loud.

I love my Fender DeVille 4x10, with a LP running through it. But to get serious metal tones I have to run my guitar through plugins or pedals.

Re: Guitar/Bass Amps - roll call.

I have a amp I got from davison guitars because it came with my electric guitar, it's a hollinger BC-08
it works great, I made a few tweaks to it and got rid of every bit of amp noise.

Re: Guitar/Bass Amps - roll call.

Posting here instead of opening a new thread.
I've tried a dark terror at the shop near here and man it's so heavy!
Also tried the Jim root version and surprisingly found it a little more versatile in that it sounded better clean than the dark terror.
Sadly neither have a recording out that I could tell.
Any one know of a lunch box style amp with a recording output and similar sound to the 2 I tried?
Also I've been finding that my favourite tones I get from the sg are usin the lead pickup in double coil and tapping the rythm pickup, I am wondering if anyone tried getting a single coil pickup installed on an sg? Curious if it would be an issue due to size. Not the most mechanical person so I figured I'd ask.
Cheers

Re: Guitar/Bass Amps - roll call.

Here is last week's haul. Amp may look a bit dirty but I've cleaned it thoroughly inside and out as well as re-soldered some of the switches and jacks. Needs a coat of vinyl cleaner to bring out the shine.

Found the amp cheap, 75 bucks. I am already making modifications to it. It's originally open-back, I went and purchased some 1/2" birch ply and got a cut made to fit the amp, it's already fastened to it and works well, and I ordered some Peavey tolex to cover it, should be here Wednesday. I moved the power cable outlet hole to exit out the back instead of the bottom, had to drill it out and put the grommet in there, looks good so far. I might buy a power cable receptacle like so:

And instead of a hard-wired cable there'd be a way to unplug and put the cable away. The existing power cable was supremely brittle and just fucked, missing the ground pin, so I had to buy a new one and wire that in.

It's not some fancy tube amp, just a 1987 solid state amp and it's not going to be my main rig, just a specific type of sound that these things did well (Swedish death metal late 80s/ early 90s- Entombed's first two albums)...hence the SD-1 and HM-2 pedal being there. Tghe speaker is an original Peavey Scorpion circa 1987, which surprisingly sounds good even after 30 years. Thinking about getting a Celestion V-Type 70 watt and trying that out to see if it's better. Here's a playtest video I did last night of the setup.


Sorry for the long winded post, I figure at least Chase will be interested slightly in this stuff, most of the ppl on my facebook dont have much to say about it...:killme:

Re: Guitar/Bass Amps - roll call.

Oh wow, that takes me straight back to high school. Classic amp. I remember hating Peavey when it was all I could afford because they were really just glorified practice/workhorse amps until the mid 90s when they started doing 5150s and Ultras. The cool guys had Marshalls with that balls out tube distortion but it was years before I had the cash for that. That solid state sound is so iconic. It's kind of a one trick pony nowadays but it's still cool. I'd say you made out like...wait for it...yeah, a Bandit.

Calling solid state Peaveys vintage is like seeing a classic car tag on a Geo Tracker - it just seems weird to me even if it's legit. If probably owned 10 or so Peaveys over the years (including a 2x12 Classic that I regret selling), the one I've held on to is a piece of shit 1x10 Envoy that has a fucked up reverb tank and makes this incredible crashing sound when you kick it hard enough. It's also a pretty good monitor at low volumes. One thing Peavey really got right is longevity - you just can't kill those old solid state bastards.

Oh, and you totally nailed the Entombed riffing. Straight out of Clandestine!

Re: Guitar/Bass Amps - roll call.

I'm on the lookout for a used SM58 to properly record this thing(yes, 58 not a 57- it's what Entombed used or so I've read), sorry bout the shitty phone mic audio, definitely doesn't do it justice.

Re: Guitar/Bass Amps - roll call.

I've been experimenting this morning w running my Stereo Chorus as a simple impedance matched splitter, sending one signal through my big muff into the bass channel of my Fender Bassman, the other signal through a zoom tri-metal (think metalzone) into the guitar channel.

The bassier side (oh i play way drop tuned, drop A) through the fuzz and the bass channel for a darker tone combined w more of a high gain treble on the guitar side is really fucking satisfying, though it makes me want to get an attenuator so i can really drive the tubes.

sort of non-conventional but really cool tone, great for big open chords a la Jesu.

Re: Guitar/Bass Amps - roll call.

If I remember correctly, Broadrick has mentioned running a POD XT through some mighty high end tube compressors (Avalon maybe?) to get that thick Jesu sound. I'd guess that gain staging a fuzz into breaking tubes is providing enough analog compression that it'd be really similar. Sounds pretty awesome - I'd love to hear a sample of what you're doing if you get time. That kind of experimentation is what's fun about metal. \m/

Re: Guitar/Bass Amps - roll call.

Interesting. I pretty much only use my POD as a fancy DI, as the heavy tones in Guitar Rig are far superior.

Def worth looking into tho.

I'll track some stuff when i get it dialed in a bit. (:

Dug it up. It's old and probably only a little relevent but there you have it.

I seem to remember a bunch of people on forums talking shit because at some point he was misrepresented as just using a Pod and then people find out he's pushing the Pod through $5k of outboard and they feel somehow tricked. But anyway there's some interesting technical discussion there which I found cool.

Regarding the Tri-Metal, is it really unique? I've heard conflicting reports as to its vitalness in a chain. I've considered either buying or building one but that's either pricey or time consuming. Just wondering if it's close to other options or really brings the magic.

Re: Guitar/Bass Amps - roll call.

its a metalzone clone.

currently im running the pregain at 4, anything else gets into really fizzy territory, also, using the mid contour as a boost to avoid that "bedroom guitarists scooped mid" sort of sound.

Re: Guitar/Bass Amps - roll call.

update. this shit is sounding awesome.

top end of the tri-metal really adding the presence that was lacking with the Big Muff alone, the Big Muff takes up a lot of space sonically but w the settings I am using it doesn't cut. Big ballsy stoner tone out of the Big Muff into the bass channel of my amp, definition w the TriMetal on the guitar side.

I'd like to take it to a rehearsal space to hear how it sounds really driving the amp and pushing some air.

Also, its not horribly noisy... so WIN.

Re: Guitar/Bass Amps - roll call.

As if I never replied to this.

Using a Two Rock Kimock for dirt mostly. It's one of five that has dual tube rectifier instead of the SS rectifier that was initially spec in it's release. That through a 1x12 with an EV12L

My clean machine is a Bludotone Hi Plains Drifter. 150watts out of four 6550. Clean for days. Through a 2x12 with two austin speakerworks kts-70s.

Been using a line 6 helix lately for fx only. Still using my amps preamps and power.

I've been using guitar rig for recording and now I want to take this to the stage.
I've been borrowing amps to play live and need my own setup!

I play both guitar and bass.

Lets hear it ppl.
Bassman is a good call. Could see you with a Friedman Brown Eye for your doom but I could see wanting something spongier for the post rock.
