    It sounds like he’s Teleing you to give his wife a Dumble in the hay, which might solve his problem.

    Do I need a weatherman to know which way the wind blows?

    I don't really need another amp, but I was looking at blackface Bassman heads. They for 1000-2000 Euros. You'd have to be very lucky to get something from the lower end.

    Say if I were to get a US model, I would really prefer a Euro transformer. And a replacement output transformer would be better so I could use more different cabs, and I'd need to replace the caps. Maybe I'd want to drill a hole for a mod.

    So to build one makes more sense, even if it ends up costing 600-700 for all the parts with a replacement head cab.

    But that’s my answer to “Will my Princeton sound like a Twin Reverb at bedroom volumes?”

    Whilst I am in-line with the general gambit of the OP.
    It's all tied in with our basic human needs and approbation is always nice to get.
    So, no surprise folk want other folk to comment on how great something is or whether it's a good idea to do/buy this/that/or the other.

    Something that could at least make folk think about the question they're asking ... Before you can create a new thread you have to have searched for 'tags' using the same words?
    But, of course, that requires folk to have previously completed the 'tag' boxes when creating a thread!

    No, Google is not your friend. They will follow you and censor you.

    Q: "I want to do voice overs for commercials. What mic should I buy?"

    A: "You must treat your room first acoustically. At least, that's what I've always heard, I didn't treat mine and I sound fine, but you HAVE TO TREAT YOUR ROOM."

    I asked the forum members for their opinions and i am really upset with the people who express opinions different from mine.

    We can safely stop making all these suggestions only when new humans stop hatching.

    Ignorance (not a pejorative term here) is perpetual because not everyone has the same experiences.


    But I'll add one anyway: "The thinner the finish, the better the tone--because the guitar can 'breathe'." [whatever that means]

    If that were a fact, the person making the claim (and every professional guitarist) would be playing a guitar that never had any finish applied to it.

    What a load.

    I think this one's kinda backwards. Usually it's "I'm looking to spend $400 on a Super Champ X2" and people are telling them to get a vintage Princeton or something like that.

    If you use the ignore function enough, your problem will go away.

    If we could I would be making music on a much bigger stage than my bedroom where my biggest fans are the content of my closet.

    That is so untrue it's not even funny. Why would anyone suggest that?

    On adjusting the truss rod...

    "Give it a quarter turn, let it rest a few hours (or days), come back and check it, repeat..."

    That's like telling an archer to pull back on the string an inch, hold it for 10 minutes, pull back another inch, hold it.... 99% of the movement happens WHILE you are turning the wrench. No need for long periods between turns. As long as it is turning freely you're not going to hurt it. Some truss rods respond to very small turns, some require more.
