  1. @veeRob was at the Nile Show where Mark threw his bass at him. I wonder if Rob has any pics of the backup sticker strat?
  2. I just finished my replica of Tom DeLonge's 1999 Surf Green Fender Custom Shop Stratocaster.
  3. @mil182 There's a VL-502 on ebay right now, good price. https://www.ebay.com/itm/Vintage-Ampeg-VL-502-All-Tube-Guitar-Amp-Head-By-Lee-Jackson-Made-In-USA/124359872606?hash=item1cf46d105e:g:wkoAAOSwOGdfdPJD
  4. I want a Marshall Jubilee. They sound so good.
  5. Right. I think it would be fun to compare them all. I think my most recent post and test is the closest I'll get just playing in my house and recording with my phone. I think it sounds pretty good.
  6. Last try today. I think this is as close as I'll get it raw in my house. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vxZuVf24zjA Settings:
  7. @mil182 I watched your tone part 2 video noted your JCM 800 settings: Drive/Gain - 7 Bass - 1.9 Mids - 1.9 Treble - 8 Presence- 6.5 Knowing the Ampeg VL-502/1002 are just modded JCM 800s with more gain, I decided to dial back my gain. I also decided to dial back the lows, which were maxed and add a little bit more treble. Here are the results: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0txmgbYPjAw Settings: I then tried one more test, using the exact same settings as above EXCEPT I moved the frequency knob up from 3 to 4: Video: https://www.youtu
  8. Best tube amp is totally subjective and based on what a person needs/is looking for. We just fan boy on this amp because of who used it and what records they used it on. It is really versatile though. For now I keep trying to nail that DR tone.

  11. @Q182 and I were bouncing DR tone ideas for the Ampeg VLs. I tried out 3, with slight changes to the preamp settings. Don't mind my shitty playing. I had to do this quick, my son was going for a nap soon. Also, shitty cellphone recordings because I don't have any recording gear. Here's tone test 1: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vfYn6JVZjyM Settings:
  12. It's totally one the best amps ever. Yeah I've been messing around more. Low/high maxed isn't terrible. I'm gonna try your low, mid, high settings but with my gain dialed back a little as it is.
  13. Here's my current settings. I took @daveyjones settings and dropped the frequency knob from 5 to 4 and just dialed the gain back a little. I tried dialing back the preamp knob too but it sounds tighter with it maxed, which makes sense. The preamp knob is basically just a built in OD pedal as I understand it.
