Re: OFFICIAL ORANGE SOUND CLIP THREAD

Band just released a new single called "Something Else". Free stream / free download on our website (at the bottom): http://www.cadetsandkings.com . NOT SPAMMING! - it's all an Orange TH30 through a PPC212OB and I'd like to share it to show that the TH30 is not just a downtuned metal kind of amp. Rh...

TH30 and Greenbacks?

Has anyone played a TH30 through Greenbacks? I usually go for a low to mid gain setting and I don't scoop much. I like what I'm getting out of a 1960B and also a PPC212OB but I have been jonesing for a 1960AX with the checkerboard cloth. I like Greenbacks with vintage-styled Marshalls but I haven't ...

Re: Les Paul Query

You said you checked all the solder joints and wiring, but did you clean them too? Dust in a switch is like dust in a potentiometer, and can cause intermittent connections that are curable without using a soldering iron.

Re: I hate my Gibson Hummingbird...

Earvana or similar. Seriously. It's a problem with every guitar.

I have had problems with Gibson nuts, though, as the typical factory job on the guitars from them is far from ready. If that doesn't fix it, look into a compensated nut.

Yeah, seriously, that's the toughest part about this. You'd think stores would be more into selling these: cheap and they are rumored to actually play well, unlike some of the junk out there (Squier stuff very much included, ever play a Bullet guitar? :( ) My experience has been that they sell out ...

not even cut, stamped. that might be part of the story but there's likely more to it, as other big names (e.g. fender, prs) will also have a crappy nut from the factory but won't tune as poorly as a gibbie with those cheapo vintage-style tuners. stevo, they do tune poorly, but I maintain that they ...

I have been told by a luthier and I believe that tuners are very rarely the problem when a guitar is having tuning issues. Think about the force required to pull on even a 14:1 tuner. It's incredible. Especially considering that we're talking about Gibsons, you're probably experiencing a poorly-cut ...

It's a 1960 slim taper, and should be like your Special. Gibby necks are prone to breakage because of the headstock angle, and a great price might indicate that the headstock has been snapped off and reglued. While it wouldn't make the guitar something to completely avoid, it would explain the good ...

The Rocker 30 is EL34, not sure on the DTT though. We had a topic a few weeks ago about if the DTT would put the AD30 out of production since they would both be EL84 30 watt amps... hey guys, check this out. it looks like the DTT is in fact an EL34 amp. But ill probabaly got with the rocker anyway....

Didn't someone do a test where alleged audiophiles ended up not being able to tell the difference between Monster cables and wire coathangers?

The Rocker 30 and TT/DTT are EL84 amps, not EL34 amps. That is, if I'm not mistaken.

Bluz, what's the red Tele? And what's the exact color, is it Dakota Red or low lighting on a dark Fiesta Red?
