Topics I've Started

  1. Can I get a reccomendation for a speaker/cab please?

    09 September 2017 - 09:40 AM

    Hi! I'm trying to build a rig that is LP > Marshall 18 watt > 1x12. It's going in my practice room as a toy. I don't gig. I am going for classic rock/blues tones so I think I need a Marshall 1x12 and a Greenback? I've never done this before and know little about the speaker/cab part of the equation. Whatever I am looking for has to be wide enough to support the head and an open back. What am I looking for?
  2. The fallout from the guitar safari

    27 August 2017 - 11:20 AM

    On Friday I want on a Joe Bonamassa inspired "guitar safari", got home at 2:30 in the morning with a nearly empty fuel tank and a trunk full of gear. Then I stayed up until sunrise playing with my toys and woke up a few hours later fully realizing that I am not a young man anymore. Friday goes in the books as one of the top 10 days of my life and the kicker is.... I ain't even done yet. This rabbit hole goes on until I am done. I am in the process of building a Pink Floyd rig (circa 1972). I have the guitar, amp, and some of the pedals. Now I need to turn my attention to the cabinet and speakers. I know David used Hiwatt cabs with Fane speakers but I will not be playing Wembley Stadium. I need something applicable to an 11x22 foot room without going deaf or sterile. SO any suggestions for cabinets, speakers, or solutions you've found through the process would be very appreciated. I would be open to anything from a 1x10 to 2x12 and honestly, a 2x12 is overkill since this will be exclusively a home rig. Speakers and cabs are a black art to me. Thanks!
  3. Guitar Safari

    26 August 2017 - 03:38 AM

    I'm tired. Somehow the stars aligned and it all came together. I am down one tank of fuel and up one Hiwatt, a Marshall, a Gibson, and a Tokai. My eyes are red. Curse you Joe Bonamassa for putting that idea in my head! I'm too old for this but I am so very, very happy. Each person I met was an exceptional human being and things could not have gone smoother. Today goes in the top ten list. I'm going to go play with my toys. Phew!
  4. Newbie 335 Qs

    19 August 2017 - 08:51 PM

    For the first time in my life I can see owning a 335 as a killer blues guitar. I know nothing about them though. Are they consistent enough in tone, materials, and build quality to buy sight unseen or are they as individual as Les Pauls and Gibson acoustics?
  5. What is the best Gibson for soulful blues?

    17 August 2017 - 11:27 AM

    Okay, this is just out of curiosity. Yes, it's the Indian, not the arrow and tone is in the fingers blah blah blah. I just want to hear your preferences.
