    NAD. Vox AC 10 again!

    Used to have one when they first came out. I was fond of it when it worked, but after it let me down 3 times (various problems) it went back to Vox under guarantee. I swore I would never have another. I now use a SS Peavey for live work. Well I did until March! Whatever, I fancied a valve amp...

    Recording audio for ipad video's.

    I've started video recording some of my performances at home for posting on Facebook, Twitter, and various forums. I'm using an ipad. I'm quite happy with video quality, but the audio quality using the ipad mic is only just about OK and could be improved. What I'd like to do is feed a couple of...

    Never thought I'd go back to valves, but............

    After 11 happy years with a Fender Blues deluxe (and the same set of valves throughout) I got fed up with the weight and sold it. I thought i'd find it easy to replace with one of the low powered, lighter valve amps currently on offer. I was wrong! Laney cub - reverb only lasted a week and then...

    How do you pronounce............

    I've just ordered a Weissenborn with a Wenge fingerboard. Anyone know how to pronounce 'Wenge'?

    Help! Peavey Studio Pro 112 problem

    I've recently bought a nineties Peavey Studio pro 112, which I like very much. When I power down it makes an almighty bang when I flick the switch. Does anyone know if there is a solution to this? I've very ignorant when it comes to electronics, so if it's not something a simpleton can fix, I'll...

    Peavey Transtube SS - I'm a convert!

    I've seen a lot of praise here for Peavey Transtube amps, and when I saw a Teal stripe Envoy 110 for a silly price at my local Cash Converter I just couldn't resist. You folks were right as usual. What an amp! Rich, articulate, loud, responsive etc. and they are so solidly built. What superb...

    Headstock Strap collar

    Have any of you folks come across one of these? I've found them to be the best solution for attaching a strap to the headstock, but I can't find one anywhere. I think I picked that one up at a guitar fair in the UK about 10 years ago. I'd love another couple.

    A question for those who use a wound third.

    I've started using a wound third on my telebration empress. I'm a bit heavy handed being mainly an acoustic player, and a wound third solves my intonation problems. However it does mean that the third string is not as loud as the other strings. The pole pieces on my pickups are flat. If I...

    Advice needed from wound third string users

    I play a 60th anniversary Empress telecaster. Very happy with how it plays and sounds. However, I've recently started using a wound third, as I'm mainly an acoustic player, and I always have tuning and intonation problems with a plain third. I guess I'm a bit heavy handed. It does have one...

    A question for Peavey Studio Pro 112 owners

    I'm hoping to buy a Peavey SS amp in the next few weeks for small pub and club gigs. I wondered if an owner of a Peavey Studio Pro 112 would kindly weigh it for me? I have a permanent back injury and need to be wary of amplifier weights. I know a Bandit is around 40 pounds, and the Studio Pro is...

    Laney Cub 8 (Monoprice) versus Juketone

    Folks, I want to ask your advice:- I've got a Laney Cub 8, which I play around the house. It's a little bit boxy and middly, but it's good fun. Here in the UK, a company called Juketone offer a 5f2a, made in China, tweed clone. It's similar (I think) to the laney; maybe some components are...

    Vox AC10 - frying bacon

    Hello Folks. My AC10 has developed the sound of sizzling frying bacon when it's first turned on. It lasts a couple of minutes and then slowly fades away. If I turn the amp off and go away for a couple of hours, it doesn't make this sound. It only happens when the amp has been cold for 12 hours...

    Anyone using Auria? I need some advice.

    For the last few years I've been recording to a Zoom 16 track hardware recorder, and mastering to CD. I've just started recording to an ipad via a focusrite idock, using Auria. I'm really impressed with this set-up - it's small portable and sounds great. There's a big learning curve with Auria...
