Topics I've Started

  1. Can I get some help with a low wattage amp/speaker?

    Yesterday, 11:36 AM

    I have a series 1 Warmnfat 1 watt microamp ( that I am trying to set up as a practice amp. However, I can't get enough volume from the rig to be heard over an acoustic strumming! I know it is only one watt but I thought there would be more volume. It is plugged into a Weber Blue Pup speaker. When I looked at the speaker there was a label that read, "Weber Blue 10A-8-20 watts" and on the input that that connects the amp to the speaker is labeled "8 ohms 20 watts". My questions are; Do I have the wrong speaker, is there another issue leading to the low volume, and finally what 10 inch speaker might be a good choice for a one watt amp. Money isn't really an issue. Thanks.
  2. Pairing a J-45

    Yesterday, 08:17 AM

    I was reading another post of the fellow that wanted to buy an AJ to compliment his J-50 and it got me thinking. If you had a J-45 ONLY, what guitar would you buy next? Something completely different for contrast? A small guitar? A J-50??? I am thinking along the lines of pairing food with wine. I'll go first; I'd take a LG-2 or a Martin 00-17. I would go small but not leave mahogany. There is nothing better to sing with for my voice.
  3. Anyone have or played a J-200M?

    20 April 2017 - 11:14 AM

    There is a J-200M (The "M" stands for mini) for sale not too far away. I wondered if anyone can tell me about them. I am considering driving a few hours away to try it out. Specifically, I have a bad right shoulder from decades of guitar playing and falling off of motorcycles. I can no longer sit in a chair and play unless the guitar is small enough that I can rest my right arm in a relaxed position. I am looking for guitars that can accommodate my disability. Right now I already have a Spring Hill Fender mini jumbo in sitka/maple but the 16 inch wide lower bout aggravates my right shoulder when I sit and play. The J-200M has a 15 in. lower bout which is a step in the right direction but the only guitar that I can sit and play comfortably has a 14 inch lower bout. I am simply unsure if the guitar will allow me to enjoy playing without discomfort. Also, for those that have tried out one of these, how is it compared to a standard J-200? Will I be "missing out" too much from a standard?
  4. What would you do with an old Gibson with an adj. bridge?

    12 April 2017 - 02:30 PM

    There is a 68' Hummingbird for sale on CL in my area. 68' is my birth year too but I'll be upfront and say that like women with a pulse, I like all guitars on CL. However, it looked rough and it has the adjustable bridge which I don't like. So I got to thinking that maybe I SHOULD go look at it because you should never judge a book by it's cover. My mind on the other hand contemplates having the bridge replaced and making it into a nice, beat up player that will sound far better than it looks. So, would you change out the bridge or leave an old Gibson "preserved" for the next generation?
  5. pedals and ma

    19 March 2017 - 11:32 AM

    I am looking to buy an isolated power source for my pedal board and am having some confusion regarding the ma. Most of the pedals I have are 9v 100ma. So far it looks like the 1 Spot Truetone will fit my needs the best. However, two of the inputs are rated at 250 ma and another at 500ma. Can plug a 9v 100ma pedal into the 250ma or the 500ma inputs or will that not work or damage anything? I am shooting for 8-10 inputs @ 9v 100ma and the Truetone will only work for me if it can use all of the 9 volt inputs. Thanks!
