Ask Myles or Chad - amp or live playing questions


walt: Played guitar for the first time in about 5 weeks(moving prep)and was pleasently surprised to find I still know some chord shapes Jan 13, 2019 14:28:44 GMT -7
tylerfromeverett: "Even the Edge doesn't use an effects loop" is one of the funniest things I've ever read. Jan 14, 2019 18:23:31 GMT -7 *
roscoenyc: Thanks Tylerfromeverett, I'm here for you. Jan 15, 2019 10:42:14 GMT -7
The Bad Poodle: How can i get more headroom? Jan 15, 2019 17:06:10 GMT -7
GuitarZ: 22 windows ripped out & replaced this week in the freezing NE cold. Marriage is still in tact. Wife didn't have a coronary. Cat didn't have a coronary. I only slept on the couch one night. Contractors were cool. Hallelujah! I'm sleeping in tomorrow. Jan 18, 2019 18:38:19 GMT -7
John E.: Simple, to get more headroom, just buy a bigger hat. Jan 21, 2019 10:04:38 GMT -7
roscoenyc: Who started this effects loop baloney anyway? I don't know any pros who use one. Now because of some no playing guy on TGP we have to pay an extra hundred bucks for every amp. Argh!. Jan 25, 2019 12:14:13 GMT -7
TeeDawg: I have never used the effects loop either. Jan 29, 2019 9:46:38 GMT -7
roscoenyc: A guitar is not a prop! Feb 4, 2019 7:04:32 GMT -7
KeithA: I think the effects loop thing is valid...the caveat is that its only in relation to one type of amp. High gain modded Marshall-type amps that have up to 6 preamp gain stages. Little or no benefit in traditional amps that get most grind from power tubes. Feb 6, 2019 5:39:39 GMT -7 *
The Bad Poodle: and a prop is not a guitar... ("guitar" hero my a$$) Feb 6, 2019 10:28:19 GMT -7 *
FleaLux: Agree with KeithA. I've owned a couple of high gain amps (Soldano, Friedman) and the loops were pretty much mandatory if you were running time-based effects. But running that way is also a pain given the extra cabling, etc.--more stuff to trip over. Feb 9, 2019 7:41:45 GMT -7
premiumplus (Dave): A fully developed poser needs good props! Feb 9, 2019 13:25:22 GMT -7
KeithA: Yeah Flealux, I just ordered a high gain Bogner and I think the buffered loop is a must (there are. 6 gain stages on the 3rd channel). Of all the amps I looked at in that style a loop was a must. I have 9 or 10 Zs and IMHO I don't need a loop in those. Feb 9, 2019 17:46:01 GMT -7
The Bad Poodle: "I call this next song 'A Loud And Annoying Search For Talent And Purpose'...." Feb 11, 2019 8:58:22 GMT -7
walt: I call ALL of them that! Feb 13, 2019 20:18:27 GMT -7
GuitarZ: Is it Irony that it's snowing tonight and my contractors are supposed to start our Sun Room tomorrow? Or, is it simply Perfect Irony? :) Mar 3, 2019 17:46:28 GMT -7
GuitarZ: Did j'ever to show up to buy your new car, start the walk-around, and find a nice ding! Well, no new car tonight. But, I think it will work out. Mar 12, 2019 18:51:17 GMT -7
hayesgary307: Just got my first Dr. Z last Friday. Never played through one before. It is and older Galaxie w/o a Master Vol. I got into Victoria's a few years ago and still love them, but this Galaxie ROCKS.Please forgive me for all the questions I'll soon be asking. Mar 18, 2019 15:12:11 GMT -7
markT: Hey Dave....glad you dig it and hope it sounds even better with some play time on it. Great to chat with you about better days. 😉 Mar 19, 2019 19:50:53 GMT -7
