This past Saturday i got to play my new Stang Ray for the 1st time at a gig. I have to say, it sounded AWESOME!!! I didn't even use my Brake Lite. I had the volume on 1-1/2 and that was plenty loud! Everyone in the band LOVED it and said it sounded crystal clear compared to my old amp. (Peavey Classic 30) My Boss Dual OD pedal sounded good through it too! I will be getting a new OD pedal though. That amp just kicks A$$!!! Here's a pic of my road case that matches my amp. My new nickname for my Stang Ray is THE BIG RED MACHINE!!!

Congrats! The Ray is an amazing amp - the greatest clean tone I've ever heard. That's why I bought one. Over time you are really going to dig it even more. Did you play in the Low or Hi input? Did you use the loop at all? Just curious how others use their Rays.

Greg, I tried using the effects loop when I brought the amp home, but I didn't really hear any difference so I'm just running my delay/reverb in the front. I also used both high/low input, but at the gig I used high. I need to mess with the brake lite some more. I haven't really discovered everything that amp is capable of yet. It's so addicting just plugging into that beast! It's like a drug! LOL Jason

Jessml02, You will not be disapointed in the Ray, It will Get the Same tones with say a Timmy and any other ODPedal But The wreck probably wont clean up Like the Ray Does, If I had the $$$ For the Wreck in Silver Id go for it, But for alot less $$$ The Ray will stand strong next to the Wreck with Ease, By the way Congrats on the Awesome RED RED RED!!! I have lots of Red Myself it screams Tone! ;D

GuitarZ: Needed some noise to fill a break in a tune I'm recording. It was too quiet. Just happened to have some High Quality Dr Z Ghia noise to fill the void. "Heal Your Sound with Dr Z! It's not just a guitar tone prescription!"

GuitarZ: Must be great to be a skunk. Eating bird food about 10' from our sun room. I'm clapping and yelling. At best, it might have given me one "yea what?" look while continuing to dine. At one point, there were two skunks and two racoons.

easyed: Guitar Z, I encountered to ultimate garbage raiding combo once. We'd been having problems with the garbage cans being raided by raccoons for weeks. Late in the evening I heard rattling at the cans. I went out and found that he'd allied with a skunk. "OK"

GuitarZ: EasyEd - Someone at work topped us both. The inside of their car had been somewhat ransacked. They were blaming their son. They checked the video. It was a Bear! I'll stick with the racoons, skunks, foxes, and squirrels.

bigboki: In this age and time when everybody are struggling and especially S&Ms I am amazed to see that kind of ignorance. I am really sorry for your experience dear Dr Z but it is for the better. You don't want to do business with those kind of people anyway.

GuitarZ: Didn't want to restart the plumbing thread, so I figured I'd ShoutBox this. How the heck does cleaning the aerator on a faucet cause a leak to start under the faucet? Huh? Arggggh!!!!
Jul 10, 2020 7:40:17 GMT -7
The Bad Poodle Experience: well, Mike, it shouldn't have been the cause of a leak. double-check your work.
Jul 10, 2020 12:56:49 GMT -7
GuitarZ: I updated in the Plumbing thread that the Moen website says that a faulty aerator can cause a handle/base leak. Eiyy! I really don't understand how plumbing works. I was ready to double check all connections. But, the leaking stopped with cleaned Aerator.
