  1. Those cymbals are something new to cut down on volume. The Remo heads are something I have not seen, but there is another company doing cloth heads to dampen drums. I have seen fiberglass shields in front of drums. I have seen drums turned sideways from the audience. I have also seen drummers who can control their volume.
  2. Madonna has been a whore all her life. Speculate on how she got her video on MTV.
  3. The guitar is what gets the girls. Guitars are essential because of that.
  4. Was that a Clair Brothers monitor she was damaging? That is inexcusable.
  5. Go to 7:38 in the second video to see Mike. Everyone else is doing great stuff, too.
  6. I'm with @Jakeboy on the possible cause. Cymbals in small jam rooms have been the bane of guitar players for decades. 1993 was a transition year for neck thickness. They were still thin until later in the year.
  7. Even before I bought any recording gear it was known that a Neve console was top of the line.
  8. I almost got to see UFO a year ago when they were on a double bill with Blue Oyster Cult in Atlanta, but Phil was feeling ill which caused UFO to pull out of the show. That was going to be my only opportunity to see them. BOC played a double set.
  9. The lights should be from the factory. Adding them later would require pulling off the fretboard and replacing it. Not many people would do that.
  10. I have seen six shows after February of last year.
  11. A bedroom amp is not what I want. My 50 watt Frankenstein heads are OK to me without attenuators, but rarely get cranked wide open anymore. My search is for a real Marshall tone. The Studio series can be bought in head and cab combinations for less than a reissue head. In a year the Studio amps might be more common as used amps. By next year I might end up wanting a couple of 100 watt stacks with the tall cabs. Now it is time to start looking for a Rockcrusher.
  12. We used to have someone here who tried to unload his fake. Things did not go well for him.
  13. Every Music Man feels great. I wish I had bought as many of them as I have Hamers.
  14. Attenuators can only do so much. They are not meant for turning 50 watt or 100 watt amps into bedroom level amps. Then the speaker needs to work a little, too. Part of the magic of a 100 watt amp being cranked is getting the speakers to break up a little. Only the real thing will do when you want to be a purist. A 20 watt or 5 watt amp with an attenuator might be a little more tolerable tonewise, but I would want to crank it anyway. It is going to be at least a year before I can realistically buy another amp. It may happen sooner if the right deal comes along.
  15. At a historic site nearby there is an old house made in part of "hard pine" that the tour guide said no longer grows. That pine species has not been eaten by termites since the 19th Century.
  16. A friend with a few Marshalls suggested buying the real thing because the cost is not that much more, sort of like buying an import Hamer versus buying a used USA Hamer. Some of you are suggesting different tubes, but then we get into the ballpark of Marshall tone. Those EL34s are part of what makes a Marshall a Marshall.
  17. Offer anyone a Suhr guitar and see how fast they start talking how high quality it is. Any wood he uses will be good stuff that the Suhr reputation will ride on.
  18. Does anyone have experience with the Marshall Studio amps? They made the Plexi, JCM 800, and Silver Jubilee into small combos and quarter stacks. They have printed circuit boards instead of point to point wiring, but Randall Smith at Boogie defended PCB construction years ago. I still want to shake walls once in a while to prove it can be done, but if the sound of these amps is in the ball park of what they are emulating the smaller size and lower volume would be nice. I want a Marshall amp instead of a Marshall-ish amp.
  19. Is your G&L that rare? If you were to sell the Les Paul could you buy another G&L like yours and have some extra cash in the end?
  20. That ought to get you a vacation right there.
  21. Golden Earring's guitar player has to leave the band over health reasons. Here is an article from February 5th. On another message board someone has said George has ALS. Golden Earring has not played North America in decades, but they have been going strong in Europe. Their setlists have had very little, if any, 70s music in recent years. They band kept putting out new music and played that instead.
  22. A lot of the bands in the 60s were teenagers, so many of them are the same age as the guys who made it in the 70s.
  23. I have been aware of them for at least 10 years, too. There is a CD around here somewhere.
