NAD, First Orange

Post by phildaman » Mon May 18, 2015 8:47 pm

Greetings,

I recently unloaded a Marshall DSL100H and acquired a Jim Root #4 Signature Terror. The Marshall was a decent amp, but was just too much for pretty much any gig I'll be playing in the near future. I haven't had the chance to play the JRT with my band yet, but I have played a few gigs with a standard TT, and it worked well. I plan to swap out V1 and V2 with 5751s this evening to get a little more play with the gain. Overall, I'm excited to get into a gig with this new beast. I will run it through a 4x12 a lot of times, but I realize it will probably sound good with any speaker combination. In fact, I plugged it into a 1x12 with an Eminence Screamin' Eagle, and was pretty darn impressed. I'm looking forward to much fun with my new amp.

Pics!!! And congrats!!!!

But seriously, pics!!!!


Yeah 100w is a lot of power. Pretty big change though. The dsl is extremely tight, the #4 less so... But warmer and thicker.

Let us know how it goes with your band!!!

You'll find it plenty loud to play with a band. I swear it's rated about 5-10 watts lower than it really is. Kinda funny that we both got rid of the same amp to get the #4.

Still working on the pics. I'll get them posted, I promise. I installed the 5751s last night, and with about 10 minutes playtime, I could already tell that I like them better. In response to Hogie34, I'm confident that the No. 4 will work with the band. I've used a standard Tiny Terror with the group before, so I have no doubts. Rehearsal tomorrow, gig this weekend. I'll update after I give her a run for her money.
