  1. GLWTS! That's really sharp.
  2. Don't have to drop coin on the Bose brand to get a good "enough" sound. It's amazing. I've had really good luck with this one from Monoprice (the 25 watt version is about the same price as the Marshall and I returned the first one I got since it didn't work) ... and I can plug a CD / DVD into it which really adds some richness to what comes through... https://www.amazon.com/Monoprice-Bluetooth-50-watt-Stereo-Hybrid/dp/B016YS9CSW?SubscriptionId=AKIAILSHYYTFIVPWUY6Q&tag=duckduckgo-ffsb-20&linkCode=xm2&camp=2025&creative=165953&creativeASIN=B01N3YIGXZ&th=1 The Marshall logo/tolex does look cool. But I also dig the glowing tubes.
  3. Upcoming NGD, Hamer content

    I had one just like that. It really was a super strat. Such a versatile guitar. Great tones in all positions. If I didn't find out how much more I like thicker necks I'd still have one. Enjoy!
  4. Got my tickets. I'm ready for the show.
  5. What's been going on in the shop - next chapter

    Seriously? That's just jaw dropping.
  6. Would it be worth transplanting the guts in a box that holds a bigger speaker?
  7. I like those suggestions. At various times, both of them took up space in an ash Daytonas I had. The Hot Rails was really good and, if you were willing to roll back vol and tone knobs, surprisingly versatile. Come to think of it, the JB Jr. was pretty versatile too. I sold the one with the HR and kept the one with the JB Jr. Of course, now in my only Daytona are plucky Bill n' Becky pups that are nothing like those other two. YMMV
  8. Tom Petty in bad shape

    This^!!!! I can't think of a single album that Jeff Lynne touched that didn't have an overly compressed sound. Gawdawful. That sound trumped whatever merits what could be mined from Lynne's pop sensibilities.
  9. I hate this place. Every time I think I can figure out a way to not spend on gear something like this has to show up.
  10. Roseanne Cash

    I looked up his wiki bio - you're spot on.
  11. Roseanne Cash

    Saw her and her hubby play in a small venue last night. Her voice was in great shape. Her hubby is a great guitarist. He was very smart and tasteful in accompanying his wife. Here's a cover of a tom petty tune that originally showed up on the streets of fire soundtrack. If you like country music that's more on the thoughtful quiet side (not full on twang or rawk) check her out on tour. Not my video...
  12. Incoming Gibson NHC

    That's funny. It was the early & mid 90s Gibsons that made me look for an alternative which ultimately led me to Hamers.
  13. Nothing but love and respect for JP. Just no L nor R for the institution called the RRHF
  14. Incoming Gibson NHC

    Single cut fever has set in.
