Re: Worst expensive amp I've ever played...

This is one of my current favorite bands. His tone is unreal. Its a gold top lester through a Mesa markIII and an open back mesa 4x10 cab. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6mIP_kjJeNs&feature=list_related&playnext=1&list=SPA8FC9AC1762DC0B4" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false; If you like Hu...

Re: I knew we were getting screwed but...

+1 for Thomann, bought a lot of gear from them while living in Europe and they were always top notch. Of course, coming from the states I could never get over how MUCH stuff cost over there, so I am glad you are getting the opposite effect!!

Re: best "first amp" for a kid...?

I will put in another vote for the Fender Mustang. I bought one for my son and he really gets into programing the pedals, making distorted sounds that he can crank to piss off his mom, jamming on songs with his buddies, etc. Note that I quite like playing around on it too. Beats the hell out of the ...

Re: Flying with your guitar. What do you guys do?

Yep, I would rather show up with it in a hard case and be forced to baggage check it than get stuffed and with a gig-bag. You've flown with a flight style case and had no real issues bringing it on then? Funny, I'm flying into Dallas with the LP from Burbank. But flying out of San Antonio on my ret...

Re: Flying with your guitar. What do you guys do?

I for one do not do the gig bag on board routine, since other folks seem to think that shovey pushy smashy is an acceptable way of stowing overhead bags! This is also a contingency against getting hosed and being forced to check the guitar. I have had some major wars at the check in counter about th...

Re: Orange Content! Witch Feet (my band) new single out FREE!

This made me wax nostalgic. The video for this song should be the lead off for a primetime return of 120 Minutes...wouldn't that be cool?

Re: AD30 - Head/Cab, or Combo

I have the AD30HTC and love the fact that I can pair it with lots of different speaker configurations, which is pretty handy if you play in venues of various sizes or just like to tinker with things. I also like front facing controls, so double bonus there. The nice thing about the AD30 combo is tha...

Re: Best Buy sells gear?

I got my Epiphone Slash LP Goldtop from Best Buy for $699 new in box instead of $999 at Guitar Center for a floor model. I wouldn't have bought it if it wasn't on super-duper clearance. This, rather than super salesperson guitar knowledge, is the reason for stopping by. I have picked up a Fender st...

Re: Best Buy sells gear?

The nice thing about Best Buy is that their clearance prices are super low - like more than 30% off of regular street price. They only sell musical instruments in select stores, so your local store may not have anything. Yes to this... If you find one close by, just go in every couple of weeks, som...
