  1. Hello Teleman, I'm very interested in your DRRI with the CR speaker. I love DRRI's and I would be very grateful if you could please share with me your enlightened insights on the sonic differences and distinctions between the stock Jensen and your Cannabis Rex speaker upgrade. 

    Perhaps it would be relevant to share that I play primarily blues with a strat and praise and worship music with a Tele.

    Thank you very much Teleman!

    Blessings, Westley wjklinger@comcast.net

      While the Jensen is a nice speaker, once it is broken in, the Cannabis Rex compliments the DRRI more.  It tames the the high end on the virbrato channel buts still retains nice articulation.  For tele fans this works out well as the "ice pick in the the ear" associated with the bridge pickup on teles and also strats is smoothed out.  The speaker also rounds out the tone and doesn't "flap out" on the low end like the Jensen.  It also makes the amp sound better with OD pedals by removing the harshness that is common with the stock setup.  If you look at posts on the web,the CRex is one of the most recommended speakers for the DRRI.

  2. First let me say that the Monaco Elite Mahogany is a tone machine! No bling and all zing! Someone got a spetacular buy on that guitar. Secondly, there is good resale in "collectable" Hamers. Price a Virtuoso if you can find one. Standards and Sunbursts from the 70's bring very repectable prices and prices for older Hamers are rising. Albeit not like a rocket but they are going up. Been pricing T51 or Daytona's lately? I bought many of them not too lang ago for $300 to $400. They routinely fetch $750 + in good shape an I recently saw a NOS T51 that someone bought for $1000. New Hamers a
  3. There are some clean Talladega tone in this clip. http://www.premierguitar.com/Video/2007102..._Talladega.aspx
  4. I agree that with all of the reference to tele like tones the Tally can cop there are no clean clips out there. Maybe if Arnie Z will let me pay him a visit we can put some down. Not that he couldn't do it; I just want to play his Tally! He has one sweet Tally.
  5. for me the two best are : Paul McCartney and Chris Squire.
  6. A "Better" tele is really subjective. I've owned a bunch of them from just about ever manufacturer you could think of (Fender, Hamer T51, Suhr, Anderson, Robin, Melancon, Nash, G&L, Rose....etc..) But for me it has come back full circle to Fenders being the best tele. Everything else is really a copy or spinoff of the design.
  7. Kiz..Hilarious but oh so true. i did the same thing with a strat. Option #3 is the best advice.
  8. I sure hope they don't handle Hamer like the rest of their line. If so we'l be seeing the likes of American Series Artist, MIJ Artist, MIM Artist, Squire Artist, FSR Artist, etc........
