    using a small amount of copper on steel studs

    I have steel studs and steel inserts that have been in there for a long time. I was just doing a little work on a few things and found out that the studs were just about seized in the inserts. My question is can you get away with a small amount of copper seize to keep the parts free without...

Haven't decided what cab and speaker to use yet so any thoughts would be helpful. I am testing it through an Ampeg fliptop cab loaded with a fender jbl d140f 15inch...

    I just can't believe it

    Why in the world would tech 21 stop making the trademark 10? It is such a great little amp and can do so much and is so easy to move around and store. The cleans are very nice for a ss amp. Great slinky spring reverb. And gives a great showing of a lot of great overdriven larger amps at small...

    Metro jtm 45/100 plexi at the Austin amp show

    I have to say the Metro 45/100 stack is the best tone to my ears I have ever heard. It is a monster and nails that old school tone in spades. From the first chord it is massive and kills any marshall being made now. And George is first rate and a Gracious host at the show. Killer room metro amps.

    55ri blackbeauty wraptail

    I called a dealer about one of these and They told me that the 4799.99 price was non negotable. I have to tell you that seems really really high for a non burst custom shop. What do you men think? Too high.

    Help with Ideas for a new build

    I am in the process of building a 45/100 and I am seriously thinking about putting this chassis in a combo type cabinet with two Celestion golds. My question is will the 2/ 12 combo in a cabinet that is a little bigger than the average cabinet, sound big enough to bring the goods out of the...
