Re: What Amp Are You Using Now?

Still using my Valve Jr with A POD in front (over 10 years now). Bought a VHT Special 6 a few weeks ago and its not bad, but it ain't no Vj. Does Fender Models a bit better, but I prefer the british voice of the Valve Jr.

Re: help with gear

Hey, I too am getting back into playing after being down for a while due to medical issues. I just got a POD HD Bean used upgrade to my POD XTLive. What I can tell you is is that modeling has advanced lightyears since the XT. Huge improvements in tone quality and a lot better computer editing softwa...

Re: Playing live- solutions you would choose?

From the sounds of it you already answered your own question. You obviously like the Marshall 1/2 stacks and Peavey bass amp. Go with what you like.

Re: Distortion pedals

There is alot out there to choose from. I tried a fulltone OCD through a Valve king and liked it alot. Continued my research and started hearing about the Wampler SuperPlextortion and after listening to alot of youtube demos bought it. Been about a year and I rarely turn that pedal off. Best bet is ...

Re: Valve Jr. in band?

I just went through that last year when i stood in for a guitarist in a dokken cover band. I had to mic mine through a PA in most instances, but it worked out great. I was playing a Variax 700 into a POD XT Live and used the vj as the power amp. I wish i knew then what i know now. The Vj can get out...

Re: How to get that tube sound!

i got well over 200 hrs of use out of the tubes in my Valve Junior. So it's not that big a deal. I replaced them with better tubes and the improvement was impressive. So you always have the option of tweaking with different brand tubes and some mods that are available for certain tube amps. In the e...

Re: How to get that tube sound!

In my opinion it really can't be done. I'm really into the modeling stuff and have been for about 3 years. I started with SS stuff (including a PA) and like you just wasn't satisfied. Pretty much by accident i plugged my POD XT Live into a Valve Junior (purchased the little combo for my G/F when she...

Re: pedals

I'm a little late to the party here, but i'm also running a POD XT Live (had it going on 3 years). Your problem is most likely in your A.I.R. settings. You don't necessarily have to turn them off, but the right one is important. I'd suggest adjusting your mic placement and cab models first. Now havi...

Re: low watt amp

I've got a POD XT Live plugged into my Valve Junior and the volume control takes it down to almost nothing with very little effect on tone. Perfect for low volume applications.

Re: What Size Speakers?

I've been thinking of speakers alot lately also and i've kinda come to the conclusion I don't care for 12's that much.Pretty subjective and my experience is limited, but i love the tones through a 2x10 and 1x15, but 12's just don't float my boat as much. Not sure why.

Re: how long, what music, what guitar...

Been playing for 3 years. 7 guitars, a POD XT Live and 4 amps and a PA. can play alot of different styles. Not great, but can keep up with the guys around here. My main love in music is Pink Floyd and probably practice it 80% of the time. Throw in some AC/DC,Led Zepplin, Dokken, Neil Young and some ...

Re: Good compressor

I've had the dyna comp for a couple of months and it's pretty good for low cost.
Unfortunately I plugged into a Keeley a few weeks ago. No contest. You get

Re: What Are You Currently Working On?

^I'm a gilmour fan also. Just about have Coming back to life and sorrow down. Lot of trem work on the later. Been wearing out the pulse dvd learning to play them. Got the tone down pretty well with my POD/Variax.

Re: A question of tone . . .

I'm interested in getting a set of EMG SA's to be put in a strat. Not exactly humbuckers, but they are active
and it does seem to even the odds a bit.
