so this makes Yamaha amps king of solid state amps!

I've got to try one with a bigger cab.  Tried Sushi's before..

How's about that Roland JC Amp?  any guitar celeb who used or continues to use 'em?

Frank Gambale, s.s. amp user din. On his recordings and live performances he uses ss amps.

yeah i read in a mag that he's annoyed by the snobs who think that SS sucks. yung sa article lumalabas na, to him, tubes are a step back because they're ancient in terms of technology.  :evil:

he uses a carvin SS preamp by the way

- Greg Ginn of Black Flag used SS amps and hated tube based amps because tube amps didn't sound aggressive enough for him.

I was going to throw out that name into the open as well.

Talaga??  I could almost swear he uses a tube amp after Jay Leno's monologue.  Thick fat tone..    8-)

I thought i'd share...

I let go my Fender Hotrod few months ago. I've been so used to the tube tone, having have used JCMs and twins and AC30's and a couple others in gigs and recordings, so I still keep looking for one somehow - the yearning is there. Pero whenever I hear players like these cats, it makes me want to venture the SS realm somehow.


So I bought a Roland microcube (with amp sims) rightafter and although it was ok, it didn't sound as delicate as a tube amp, IMHO it lacks the subtle nuances that tube amps have.


Now I'm with a Roland JC120... I've been with it for quite a little while palang naman. I think it sounds considerable AND very different than the tube tone we know. Pero the main thing I guess is that it has a sound its own...and it's a sound whose overlooked beauty is worth discovering. Kaso andaming factors to obtain an objectively decent tone... lalo na yung tipong tunog that connects to you artistically - guitar/pedal/amp 'compatibility, amp's flexibility with genres, amps response with your techniques....i could go on.


I think I'm up to take this tonal direction (in the meantime atleast) and see what I can come up with.


I think i'm at the point where I've gotten over the traditional tonal pedagogy... wanting to to try something different instead.

I dunno, wala lang, I'm just pondering I guess. :-)

Speaking of Kings, BB King uses a Lab Series 2x12 solid state. :D

Yan ba yung ginamit nya sa The Thrill is Gone? I soooo dig that tone!

Yung sa recent collab kasi nila ni Clapton very fender-ish tunog nya dun eh. And it sounds too 'accurate', perhaps a little hi-fi-ish (it should be the nature of the album's production). Didn't love it as much as his Thrill is Gone record.

Reb Beach? Actaully he uses a Hartke Bass Amp head. Only for his clean sounds.hehehe

Yeah, Reb's tone is great.

Another great SS tone I like is Dimebag's, before he switched to Krank tube amps. Damn! I like that tone in Cemetery Gates.

probably because of his korg multi-effects.

though I like dimebag's guitar playing, i never liked his tone.
