Topics I've Started

  1. Does anybody here watch the Johan Segeborn's YouTube channel?

    23 August 2017 - 08:47 PM

    Most likey has been posted before, but the search function is useless here on this forum.

    I've been watching his channel lately, what a fantastic collection of amps this guy have.

    Here's and example
  2. New attenuator day

    18 August 2017 - 10:40 AM

    Well, after all these years I finally decided to get an attenuator, my two largest amps have master volumes but I also have a few other small amps that do not.

    I ended up going with a Weber Mini Mass because of its features, 4,8,16 ohms that covers all my amps, I went with the 50 watt model since the highest output amp I have is my Mesa 5:25 that can crank 30 watts and since I do want to attenuate the output quite a bit is safer to have extra capacity on the attenuator.

    I also like the direct out output, I will be record through it and see how it sounds, it gets good reviews on this.

    The treble compensation switch works really well too. I am happy with it and essentially for the cost of a pedal I should have bought one long ago.

  3. London-Nashville direct flight coming in 2018

    10 August 2017 - 08:37 AM

    Some excitement going on in town since British Airways has made the official announcement that there will be a direct flight to London starting around may 2018.

    I think it is great not just for the obvious reasons but also as a way to get to Europe.

    This may not be big news to folks in large cities but it is a big deal around here.
  4. SongBirds Museum in Chattanooga

    28 July 2017 - 08:40 PM

    So I stopped at the new Songbirds Museum in Chattanooga on the way back from a Metallica concert in Atlanta.

    What a great collection of guitars, so many and so incredible.

    A bit pricey, there are several options but essentially you can have a self-guided experience for under $20 but, you get to see only one '59 Les Paul, the rest are part of the guided tour option which is right under $40 and takes you to the vault where there are some more bursts and other expensive stuff.

    I have been to other guitar/music museums but this is a really nice collection of guitars under one roof, simply incredible.

    I sneaked in a few pics when I was by myself.

  5. New Amp Day

    19 July 2017 - 04:38 PM

    I picked up this head locally for a mere $300 essentially brand new including footswitch.

    The clean channel is really nice and the distortion channel is a scorcher but there are some easy mods that work great to tame the gain. I already swapped the tube on V1 for a Tung Sol.

    It is nice to finally have a nice head for my 4x10 Marshall Cab.

    First time trying Flickr, not sure if the pick will show.

    Hi! I saw the Fender Champ head that you've built and I think it's an amazing job you did!!! I'd like to do the same for a Victoria 518-T (copy of a Fender Champ 57) Could you provide any help? Or even, would you want to build another that I would buy from you?

    Great. Unknwon is a great act and guitarist, not a lot of people get into him on this forum though. I plan to see him every time he is in town. I have seen him 3 times now.
