New Amp Setup, Maybe the Best I have Heard

In Bali now and all of my good stuff is back in the US (VH4, Triamp and Dr. Z gear). I also have Vox and Tech21 with Cremeback and V30 here.

Just picked this setup in Jakarta and had it shipped here.

This Friedman JJ Jr. pumping through just 2 V30s open back upper and 2 Voice of the World closed back lower is insane. I tried an Anniversary and a Cremeback in the upper cabinet paired with a V30s and the V30s by themselves was just tighter and a perfect match for this little 20 watt screamin freakin demon.

I have played through a lot of stuff since I started gigging professionally in 84 and this may be one of the best tones I have heard just as it sits, dry.

Many gigs in Bali?
As many as we want. I have a female vocalist from Germany we are now grooming. One of the best natural talents/voice I have heard. Guitar player from Suicidal Tendencies and I are writing for her now and about to take her into the studio as I can get her signed pretty quickly back home once we have a catalogue for her.

I am in one super heavy band with some pretty famous recording artists now living here in Bali. We have about 15 originals and the other half is covers from Sound Garden, Tool, Godsmack, Alice in Chains and etc.

My other band with the German female singer uses her as lead for about 1/3 of our songs, but we do Blink, Greenday, 311, Blur. Shaggy, Sublime and etc. with him and songs like Zombie, What's Up, Give me One Reason and etc. for her. We have club/bar owners wanting this band to play weekly, but we don't want to.

We can play out 3 or 4 times a month with both bands.

Nice place too, eh?
I once met a dentist from West Virginia who would fix teeth for 5 or 6 months and go to Bali for the other 6 or 7...he was totally in love with the place.

Love it. Could not pay me enough to set foot back in the US. I have stuff there I still need bring over such as music gear and own 6 houses there, but no way I would go back as I am afraid something would happen and I would get stuck there with all the crazy stuff going on.

You really don't realize just how bad the US is until you and move some place cool.
