  1. I went from a Kustom 200 315c to a Vox Westminster with two 18 cabinets. Absolutely no improvement in sound (1970). That Vox sure looked good. Most locals used a Peavey 215 and a Peavy head. This was a fairly loud,reliable amp. When I got 2 SVT cabinets in1975 people started to take notice. Little amps never were as good. Now my ABM 610 sounds as good as the Ampeg- I just can't lift it !
  2. Keith played a white one on a live DVD and even GAVE one to Buddy Guy on stage in NY. That Varitone switch looks cool , players ( like Keith) prefer no Varitone.
  3. If you like that SG you will like the new LP Jr. with one P-90 also.
  4. The Series 1 caught my attention as I read the Alembic price list. It might be $10,000 or so with regular wood. How many new 'Bics are sold each year ? 100? or 1000 ? There are more than 10 models.
  5. I like the green ones also on bass and the yellow for gtr. They are unbreakable like nylon but harder (percussive like a piano ) . Tortex is good for me.
  6. I don't like that tune much either , check out the high bassey notes on "Rain". You don't hear that sort of sound anymore. Also listen to the high notes on "With A Little Help From My Friends". Is that some phaser or chorus effect that makes it stand out ? Go back to Rubber Soul for his best parts that drive the song.
  7. The Ashdown RM 500/210 combo has an 8 ohm extension speaker jack . The e.q. is good and the compressor is useful. I have the RM 500 head and it has not seemed lacking in tone or power.
  8. I like my RM 115 cabinets. The RM 500 head has crisper treble than my ABM 600.
  9. I would get this in a 5 string. Also a mapleglow Rickenbacker 4003. I already have a 2017 4 string USA Ray. Of course a Dolphin Warwick or a Thumb might cost that much and be good but they are heavy.
  10. My Ripper is long gone but I liked to use a good bit more treble and then picked it close to the neck for some mellowness. I foolishly had an EB-3 bridge pickup put in the middle. Added a volume control too ! It only cost $375 from Mannys Music in NY. Rip on...
  11. Do the new ones have that pull switch for "vintage" or "modern" sound ? I like both sounds.
  12. They will probably have a new color coming out but I like blue best ! My 'Backer is Fireglow (red-yellow burst). Your new bass looks great !
  13. your tribute band has better vocal harmony than most of the originals ! tastey Warwick also !Do you use much bass e.q. boost on the Ampeg (ultra low maybe ?) There is not much pick sound.
  14. I did the same as fleabag , with 4 wide screws through a mount plate. Over the years I have found that 4" wheels will go over bumps and cords easier. I like the mounts all the way to the front edge and back edge of the cabinet so it will be harder to tip over.
  15. I have a "wide" MAG 300 and a regular MAG 300 head. Just for fun I plugged in my Les Paul gtr in the wide one (with 410 Marshall gtr cabinet). The warmth made the tone pretty good with a tad of extra gain.
