New Gear day for Ags
« on: January 05, 2013, 08:03:20 PM »
   Hello,  Just came home from Guitar center had to pick my acoustic which was getting some set up work .
Last month or so I've been looking at adding a new Mic to the toy room .
   
   I have had my eye on one brand in particular. I don't know why maybe some time back I remember a talk show host using one and I liked it.
 
   I  knew about the brand but not much else. So I kept seeing them in the music catalogs  and online and I always was drawn to them . Most likely because they looked cool.

   So here I am with it and I hope to put it to use soon in the mean time a unwrap vid :) and I poke some fun at myself LOL

The Architects office where I first started (over 25 years ago) had the drafting department in an upstairs loft in an old house. It was separate from the rest of the offices and we could crank the music up. The other two draftsmen were musicians also and were crazy Zappa heads. We played Zappa records (remember them) non stop all day, with a little Zep and Floyd in for good measure. They were also big into the band XTC and turned me onto their music as well.

That's cool ... Oh by the way the Mic is orange not Red .... so that makes it a blue orange hahahaha maybe it will do good on blues LOL


I did a few rough takes of a new tune with a stereo set up using the Blue and my MXL V63M and the new guitar it sounded good . But like most here I need a dang man cave !

HI all hope all's well .


I love my wife why you ask because with all the cash we been spending out which as you all know is hell to build back up let me get a new amp  ;D  Been without a good amp meaning all around sound gain wise LOL like forever and after quite a while going over reviews and sound bits and the likes I went as cheap as possible really like option for option it's the cheapest I've seen LMAO But ! it worth it's weight in gold for tube sound ... fingers crossed. News tubes will be a must from all research but that's no problem . Anyway here's what it is .... Hey Spiral funny thing huh after our earlier conversation  :o [size=78%] [/size] :D

Hey all I got my new amp and it's ... interesting LOL but I like it .


  few things .. first I rant a bit as you know I can;t think and type at the same time so the same here LMAO
The clean still has a bit of bite some of the amp mod's cover the fact that there is bleed in from the gain channel . There is amazing amount of mod work done to this head and the JCA20 and the fact that's it is so affordable and built so well that is desirable for tweaking mod's


  What the mod's are , there a few my eye is on taming the demon which not by name LOL will add a depth pod also adding stuff to make the clean channel a real clean channel . there is a bunch of info best left to the pro's which if your an amp geek you can find here  http://www.guitarampboard.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=5&t=1615&start=600

  As well on you tube. Fact of the matter is this amp is a high gain monster out of control ! LMAO I do now know for a fact that my stock Ibanez pick ups lack a bit and my sound here on the demo sounds pretty close at least in my head to the v-amp3 LMAO

  Ok So s for the demo it's just muck stuff was not really feeling anything till the last piece ...WARNING it is louder why ? heck I don't know I just added 2 new tracks and Bam it was louder nothing I did ... Hey JOOM LMAO it's Reason ? Na I think it was because I used a template.

  last thing It's 11 minutes of blah the last jam is me again expression my confusion of life solo wise bad notes are meant to be there ! And just to say at the end the feed back is from a setting of ( Pre = 6 ) and ( master = 1) and I was 6 ft a way from the amp ... Holy crap!

 I posted here to avoid unnecessary downloading ... I hate doing that just to listen to something !

Missed this franks thanks :)
 
I just took apart my lexicon io-42 all the pots where scratchy was a little bit a afraid not want to break any thing ! but I did a poor mans take down did want to separate the board from the outer face plate  the pot nuts where small and I was not wanting extra scratches or broken cables though well built and I mean it inside and out the cable wire were on the delicate side from the looks and would not meld well with my giant pipe wrench LOL


Anyway all went well no dust to see but air blasted anyway and then went nuts with the control contact cleaner and lub so for the moment , she's now purring like kitten instead of finger nails against a blackboard   hahahahaha beer time :)


Oh here's a pic of the new amp :)

  So is it fixed ? not sure yet but I just plugged it up and will start to record tomorrow that will tell fingers crossed . I really like this unit so I hope she stays strong LOL otherwise ................... my wife will leave me she can only take so much ! LOL
