  1. What pots would you buy to replace Hamer pots?

    Those ^^ are more or less CTS 'G450 Vintage' pots...
  2. What pots would you buy to replace Hamer pots?

    I'd bet a pound to a penny that CTS vintage are close! That said, I prefer the sweep on Bourns audio taper pots myself nowadays after being a CTS Vintage (G450) user for many years...

    Yamaha THR10* series all the way for me
  6. Boosting a Dirty Amp for Leads.

    Again, Nu-X Drive Core pedal! $40 delivered. It's an overdrive + boost in one. Use either or both. Does a great job... or eBay has: https://www.ebay.com/itm/Dec-Buffer-Booster-Electric-Guitar-Effect-Pedal-Clean-Boost-True-Bypass-A8N2/322170949518?epid=24003944854&hash=item4b02e28f8e:g:HtwAAOSwc1FXX2FF $20 https://www.ebay.com/itm/XP-Booster-Electric-Guitar-Effect-Pedal-with-Clean-Boost-True-Bypass-Free-Ship/131762840569?epid=2181280296&hash=item1eadad63f9:g:8V4AAOSwzvlW9gY- $20 Joyo $21 https://www.ebay.com/itm/Jf-38-Electric-Violao-Guitar-Parts-Effect-Pedal-Roll-Boost-Volume-True-Bypass/162689556742?hash=item25e10da106:g:Hs8AAOSwCV5ZzJw3
  7. Help me choose a new practice amp

    I think the guy needs an anp for band practice not home practice! A THR 10 will not be loud enough for band practice. I love my 10X though
  8. PSA - 84 Scarab on Reverb

    That's a weird looking single coil pick-up
  9. Boosting a Dirty Amp for Leads.

    I just bought a Nu-X (New Cross) Drive Core pedal and it's cheap and great! It has boost or drive options and you can have both on at the same time using the Mix position on the 3-way switch (Boost | Mix | Drive)! Great little pedal. Mine cost around $19 delivered (new)...
  10. Help me choose a new practice amp

    I bought a Yamaha THR 10X and within a week solde every other amp I had (my big ones)...
  11. Low volume/wattage amp that still sounds killer?

    So, what's the verdict?
  12. Low volume/wattage amp that still sounds killer?

    Trust me; you won't get a better small amp than a Yamaha THR 10*. I've tried everything...
  13. Low volume/wattage amp that still sounds killer?

    Rob likes his THR5 so much, he told us 3 times
  14. Low volume/wattage amp that still sounds killer?

    Good? GOOD? You'll be sending all of us that recommended the THR gift vouchers man
  15. Low volume/wattage amp that still sounds killer?

    It has lots of FX built in but it also takes pedals well. Google it
