    Valve stocking

    Considering the recent international situation, the fact that shuguang hasn't produced a single valve for at least 2 years, I've just gone in and ordered a quad of JJ 6V6s for my Orange Rockerverb 50 in case they become difficult to source later. I'm wondering how New Sensor will manage to ship...

    Ohhhhh! Another ASAT thread! :D

    I'm the owner of a G&L ASAT Special Tribute, and I've got to admit those pick ups are some of my favorite. Absolutely love the big jumbo MFD pick ups. It's my cheapest guitar, and after some fret work, hangs in there with its more expensive stable siblings. The jumbo MFD pick ups have got me...

    To glue, to hammer or to file.....

    I've got an almost perfectly lovely G&L tribute ASAT Special. Got a great deal on it as B Stock with atrocious fret work. The deal was good enough it justified buying fret levelling and crowning tools I already needed for another guitar. I hammered some raised frets in, leveled and crowned...

    Nut files recommendations

    Basic guitar maintenance really. 3 of my guitars have 1 or 2 strings occasionally binding in the nut. I don't plan to increase my stock. So whilst I need to take care of this problem, it's pretty much going to be a one off for each guitar as I'm pretty set on string gauges. I'm pretty...

    Swapping pick up magnets

    I have a lovely 2012 SG 70s Tribute with mini humbuckers. So it has these pretty amazing 70s Tribute mini humbuckers set. Very warm, rounded, mellow. Really great.:p Yet..... I prefer the burstbucker Pro V in terms of bite and attack. Those have an alnico V magnet. The minis are more in...

    It looks like I'm addicted to the bottle....

    I've cracked again. Bam. I just couldn't resist. Had to put a reasonable offer in. https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/0?mpre=https://www.ebay.com/ulk/itm/323819697257 I'm weak. Edit: the valves I've bought are the RSD branded listing, not mullard reissue. It looks like what people see in the...

    Need help dating RSD branded Tungsram ECC83

    I managed to obtain 5 Tungsram ECC83 for a very reasonable price, with 5 more soon on the way. I just can't date them. The code on the foil tag doesn't add up. Instead of letters or letter and numbers, I get single or double digit numbers. Here's, in theory, a welded plate from the late...

    A clean amp..... from Orange? With tremolo and reverb!

    Ade Emsley had been speaking about developing a tremolo amp for a while a few years back, so I guess he took his time to get it right. It sounds pretty phenomenal IMO. Interesting!!!!

    How many multiple amps have you owned?

    I've just scored an Orange AD5. I sold my 1st one 5 years ago. Been hankering for one for the last few years, and my eBay stars finally aligned yesterday. I've also owned 2 Orange AD15 at the same time... one sounded slightly better (even more so after swapping valves from one another to make...

    String trees options

    I've got a G&L ASAT Special Tribute that I really like, but I've always disliked the appearance of budget squiers/MIM Fender's or G&L tribute string tree / retainer. For all intents and purposes, it's fully functional, and that butterfly string retainer is solid (I've seen some on cheaper...

    RFT 12AX7 and EL34

    I have a possible line to score some NOS 60s RFT valves, 12AX7 and EL34, from east Germany. They would be more expensive than new production valves, but not that much more- 12AX7 would be 50% more than ordinary ones, and EL34 around twice the price of regular new EL34. I'm on the fence - they...

    FX Loop line level to instrument level convertor?

    I hope you guys have some good recommendations for me. I've got an amp (Genz Benz Black Pearl 30) with a line leve FX loop. I really need to make it work at instrument level. At the moment, as would be expected, my loop FX sound crap through it. So..... I need something that will convert...

    Let's stop that PRRI and DRRI nonsense. Who plays an Orange?

    Actually, I'll admit the PRRI and DRRI are really cool amps, I've always been fond of them. Little use for them though..... .... as I love my mids on the dark side. :D I rock through Orange AD15, Orange Rockerverb 50, and Orange Rocker 30. I like cleans.... but I don't always like my cleans...

    In your opinion - who makes the best Tele?

    The Tele isn't a fender exclusive anymore. A number of its designs are backward and outdated even (doesn't mean it doesn't make for a great guitar, just that die hard tele fans (like Les Paul fans) can be very conservative, at time in spite of common sense). As an example, the 3 saddle tele...

    NGD on the way......

    I'm pretty stocked I must say. I currently have a LP standard faded, a SG 70s Tribute with mini humbuckers, a Vigier Expert Retro 54 (improved strat), and an old MIJ Aria Pro II RS X80. All great guitars that I should be plenty happy with. However........:D I have bought and sold 3 Tele in...
