Bluz, did you not just see him recently, like 6 months ago or so.
What's he doing just touring the states over and over again. It has been 25 years since I went to a Frank Marino concert (I was 14).

Hi Joe Well, that is actually kind of what I was thinking... The AD30 has that one great awesome sound but the R30 was more versatile and useful (but I did not like the single element in the combo) so my thinking is that the RV50 (though different) is a build on the R30 without getting the same amp,...

So GAS has left me not owning an amp at all (I sold my stuff to buy an amp that turned out not to be a good match for me). So I have spent the last two weeks shopping for another. I have found that when I walk into a shop, cash in hand, I am actually more careful and rational about what I want. This...

Currently rediscovering Iggy Pop in my car.
Right now it is American Ceasar - and I keep playing the beginning of 'Louie Louie' because it is the coolest guitar sound ever.

A wad = roughly € 1700 (approx USD 2200). I am however conscious in that I would like to make my aquisitions in a way that I can recover most of the money when I move on. So I either like to buy 'second hand' or make other arrangements. As in the case of the Vintage Modern, I would order it fr...

Matamp King Street definitely seems like a great choice and yes I do believe it would be right up my street.
But:
1) I would have to buy it untried
2) The lead time - as I said, I am ampless NOW

-Maybe I will keep my eyes out for some used ones.

So I sold my AD30R to get a Marshall 2061X - which did not work out. So now I have NO amp and am not dead set on anything specific. Basically, I would like a Head/cab set up (preferable 4X12), and no more than 50 watts. I have now come to realize that I am not hard enough to consider non-master volu...

So what is in those?

I am currently ampless (once the 2061X went back) and one of my options I am considering is a Silver Jubilee 50W with cab. The cab has G12(T)-75 elements and I do not know much about them.

I am with Corky in that I actually feel it is the KIND of sound (although great) that is a large part of the problem rather than just the volume itself. If you are going to get hit in the head by a baseball bat, the wood in the bat will make a difference (not the best of analogies, but nevertheless....

So it will be going back to the shop. Yes, the sounds are great but I have had the worst ear ache this week and I am pretty sure it is the amp. I have even done some bandrehersals without earplugs when I had the AD and it never really bothered me. Now I am having pain from playing around alone (and ...

Going to university was the absolutely best thing, by a very long shot, that I have ever done.
