  1. PE is just that, a killer solid state power amp..,the TM60 has the sansamp preamps built in. Both are great at what they do.

    Yet another stellar example of Shishkov craftsmanship. How does it sound? What pickups?

    What attenuators do you like?

    Another vote for the MiniMASS. I used one for years until I needed more than I moved to a 50 watt MASSLite. I still have the Lite and a Badcat Unleash.

    Some heavy shit.

    I get the Freebird thing. Let’s face it, it is am incredibly awesome guitar song.. pretty chimey rhythm, great slide part, then the chunky outgrow rhythm and those triplets & repeating riffs. Allen Collins did the entire solo in one pass in the studio. But like our Sharky, I dig the live version where Collins and Gaines are cookin’ together. it is a jam and we used to work on it for hours. It is a great rhythm to improvise over. Ballroom Blitz by Sweet was huge to me. I was a kid into 70s AM radio and that song has killin’ rhythm guitars that are actually the lead. Very crunchy and a classic rock-star riff. It was one of so many that made me wanna play....Fool For The City Wang Dang sweet Poontang, Walk This Way, Won’r Get Fooled Again, etc, etc. The 70s was a GREAT decade for aspiring guitar players. Iron Man, Smoke on The Water, Whipping Post.....

    Billy at Darryl's

    I play 10s on everything except my bass....someday I’ll try a set of 8s. But not on my Strat....Strats eat strings as it is....you know, I need to try some flats...but I digress.
