  1. Not butt-rock, RobB, we are wishing for a return to the heavy blues-rock pre-MTV era...
  2. He would really do well in that genre.
  3. His voice has definitely changed,but whose hasn’t? Maybe Frampton? Anyway I did like their earlier blues-rock stuff better but hey, I dig NEW good guitar rock. It’s playing HEAVY on the nostalgia factor but the playing was great andI thought it was a fun tune....but of course I also wrote a song called “Cold Beer Here” so what do I know lol? I wasn’t big into hair metal in the 80s at all, but I will buy this if the rest of the album rocks.

    PAF goodness right there.....
  5. I believe the KT66s were easier to source in England. I can check my Bluesbreaker history book.
  6. I have a set of original TungSol 5881s from the 60s and OMG they blow away the Philips 6l6wgbs that I have and any NOS 6l6gc that I have. There is a certain sweetness about them...no harshness at all. I would LOVE to try some new 5881s if they are indeed real 5881s.
  7. The girl, the music, the video content, or all of the above?

    Installing Minihums on a Studio

    Ahhh....I missed the P90s part. When I tried the birds in my P90s Firenza I bought mounting rings from Guitarfetish that worked. They were tight in the cavity (!) But they worked.
  9. Thanks BubbaVO! Anytime I ca approach the groove and swagger of 70s ‘smith, I’m happy.
  10. I knew you would! 0054 did a great job with the covers!

    Installing Minihums on a Studio

    I put Firebird minis in my Artist, which was designed for full size buckers. I found black plastic mounting rings on eBay. They are also out there in chrome. Here is a pic:
  12. Now that my new album is on YouTube Music, Apple, & Spotify, I can post a couple links. This is the last song we recorded and it came I just under the wire in December. AC brought it to me done except for lead guitar and vocals. So the solo guitar is 0006 into a treble booster into a Marshall JMP cranked . Enola Shlabotnik was screaming! AC played either his 336 or Les Paul On the rhythm tracks. Enjoy...this is one of my faves on the album. I love the sustaining Shishkov note that hangs on the intro right into the vocals starting. https://music.youtube.com/watch?v=Tb9xtS2m9Sk
