  1. I remember pics of that one getting fixed on here along time ago. Beat just like I like them.
  2. Got it and it sounded like horrible, ordered new tubes and put in the preamp tubes and sounds great, need to put the new power tubes in n and bias. 50 watts to el34 and 6 12ax7. Has two channels with two effect loops. Has half power switch, vintage and modern switch, boost for each channel. Has a clean channel and a distortion n channel, like 70 hard rock, not fizzy. It’s all hand wired and got it for $625. His amps are like $3000 for a new one.

  6. Pedals - Neverendingrabbitthole

    My first setup was early 70s with a big muff into a traynor yba-1 with a les paul jr. thats the only pedal i ever used. Then i quit and sold everything to pay the divorce lawyer in 1986. Started up again around 2000 and just used amps straight in. Finally after couple years i got the pedal bug and went over to that other site and read everything out there got into d*a*m pedals from england talked to the captain and for my matamp he suggested s red rooster treble booster and a meathead fuzz.they were perfect. Tried a couple other treble boosters and even an orginal 70’s. Big muff. Not as good. Sold off everthing again when mom got sick but the red rooster wish i would have kept the meathead. I need a good matamp flavored stooner pedal so again did a bunch of research and the dunwich da 120 looks like the one, ordered s custom ones dince they sold out. Only other thing i want is a delay/reverb and thats it, minimal pedals. The amount if pedal manufacturer is unbelievable
  7. Thanks I’ve been scouting reverb and eBay. The ones on reverb are too nice. I have 2 looking for a third.
  8. What's Spinnin' ..

    I left ohio in 1970, my family wanted me to go to college , we couldn’t afford it so in California college was free just books so we sold or house and left ohio for Chino California were the Priwon were Timothy Leary and the mason Girls were held.. We lived across the street from the prison in a mobile home next to corn fields. We left in 1972 when my dad was killed in a motorcycle accident, we came back to ohio and the first concert I went to th fist week I was back was Rory Gallagher opening for Robin Trower at the old Clevland Agora, liked then both but wow Rory was just some kind of freaking blues punk, I saw hm after that every year until he died. my favorite “punk” blues guy. Cranked this up tonight because I had the blues, dad, mom and Rory all gone but not fror gotten. RIP. But kick ass.
  9. Well , man I have a talking volume amp, works great but sometimes you want to play a real valve amp with some freaking volume, these modern modelers don’t do that. I’ve tried the axe and the Kemper and for a talking volume amp they are great but for the price and value the Yamaha thr is just as good. Like I did I don’t need the big iron, 89% of the time Yamaha works great but for that Saturday night or when ever you want to let it rip for me nothing is better than some big iron, matamp gt120, orange or 120, Marshal JMP or , Sunn Beta Lead or Ampeg V4 cranking through a 4x12. I’m really too old for it but it really is the shit. so thanks for the feedback but I’m buying it.
  10. Ok I play my Yamaha thr10 about 80-90 per cent of the time. But very occasionally I like to play thru a proper head turned up thru a Reeves 2x12 ported with my 25 dB reducing earplugs! I sold all of my cool amps and keep this old Randall Rg100es amp around for that purpose, well the pots on the two gain channel are messed up, like you turn it way past we’re you think thy should it be, still works but it’s digital and a tight, stiff, metal amp. And I get an occasional crackle. So the exact amp I sold 15 years ago is up for sale and I always like it it but moved on and regretted selling it. I don’t need it I’m happy with the Yamaha, it’s pretty cheap like 1/2 what I sold it for, should I do it. But I’m thinking I should get it and trash the Randall, it’s tube, 50 watts, 1/2 power switch, 2 channel and handwired. I’ve looked at most of the new stuff out, expensive and PCB. Plus the tone is modern which I’m not into, this is more classic. Builder is still around for service if I ever need it. It’s boutique amp not from the majors. Have you ever bought an amp back, how did it end.
