    Could be a relevant parameter to the answer. Am I driving an EV? Am I wearing my seatbelt?

    Essential Tremor Query

    Propranolol (inderal) is most commonly used beta blocker for this. I'd discuss trying a different beta blocker before a different class of drug. Primidone is a pro-drug for phenobarbital (your body metabolized primidone to phenobarbital). Phenobarbital is a barbiturate that causes drowsiness...

    Tooth Pulled

    Unless you find an "older" dentist, you probably won't find one willing to do a bridge these days. My father and grandfather were both dentists, and I've had to have a couple extractions over the last 5-10 years due to motorcycle accident (2011) during which I hit my teeth together with enough...

    Essential Tremor Query

    Many times, a beta blocker (commonly used for heart rate or increased BP) will be used for essential tremor. Most have little/no side effects. I didn't stay at a Holiday Inn Express last night, but did practice pharmacy for 41 years before retiring recently.

    68 Custom deluxe amp

    I've had one for about 5 years. Like you, I'd heard about the hiss at idle. I found one in local mom and pop store, A/B'd against the 65 DRRI and came home with the 68 Custom. Mine is very quiet at idle. The two distinct channels (that are in phase, so can be jumped), reverb/trem on both...

    Melody Maker Club.....

    I had a 1970 just like the one you're holding. Only negative thing I remember about it was the sliding pickup selector switch. You could shut both pickups off if you hit just the "wrong" spot. I don't remember the dreaded SG neck dive issue with it, but that was long before the internet. 🙄...

    I wanted to love the new ToneMasters

    I've tried out the DR when they first hit the stores. It was "close", but not quite. Maybe in a live situation/band mix, I'd have a different outlook. I've owned two blackface vintage DRs (1964 and 1966) and currently have a 68 Custom DR. I love the idea of power attenuation and xlr out to...

    68 Custom Princeton Reverb

    I put a Celestion Greenback in mine. Big improvement over stock. My 68 Custom Deluxe Reverb came with a Celestion V type. There is now a 10 inch V type and if I was changing, that's what I'd use. The V type in the DR has plenty of highs. It's the best speaker I've used in any DR, and I've had a...

    Fender Blues Jr advice for beginner

    I've had a Blues Jr. (Tweed/NOS) for about 9 years. It's not the typical Fender Blackface sound, but you can get fairly close and I've had 2 BF Deluxe Reverbs (1964 and 1966) and a Blackface PR (1964) to compare to. The "fat" button is your friend (especially with single coils) to get a fuller...

    New Country Music?

    I did enjoy seeing Brooks and Dunn...wasn't crazy about pulling in guests to sing (Hootie and Blowfish ex front guy and Jason Aldean-earrings). Ronnie Dunn can still sing rings around everybody with one vocal cord tied behind his back...

    Watching live music show from Nashville on NYE. Several using single cutaway solid body Gretsch. What are they like/similar to? Filtertron pickups? Sound like? Are they solid bodies or just no f holes? I notice a single knob on lower bout/cutaway and then three control knobs in usual...
