the EC-1000 is way more expensive parang double nga yung price niya sa MK I'm not really sure kasi sa website ng lyric hindi nila nilagay yung price, ang nakasabi lang is "available upon inquiry". IMO mas worth it talaga ang EC-1000 but the MK is also pretty though.

nagka mk na ako bro, panalo din siya para sa price sulit na sulit sa quality. pero binenta ko din siya kagad to upgrade. ngayon i have the ec1000 and eclipse 2. so my vote goes to the ec1000. ito yung mga tipo ng guitar na for keeps IMO

PRICES:
MK- 20k (RJ's price)
LTD EC1000 47k sale price, normal pricing nasa 60+ (LYRIC's price)

Hmm, this makes my decision easier. I'm looking for a good guitar that I won't be paranoid about taking to gigs or using for practice at home. Currently, the only guitar I own is my Ibanez RGA121 Prestige. I need a "B" guitar that's not as expensive but still good for recording and gigs. The ESP is practically in the same price range as the Ibanez which defeats the purpose I guess.

Salamat po guys!

Tanong ko lang din, regarding the MK, how do the Rockfield pups compare to the more common Seymour Duncans, EMGs or Dimarzios? And how is the neck?

As for the ESP, I'm thinking of getting a cheaper model instead -- any suggestions?

+1. Dime wah covers lots of range from throaty to trebly sweep. Looks "cliche", though. :oops:

But I don't give a damn! I'm keeping mine... For now. :evil:

Among the three, I'd choose 535q. "Synonymous" to Dime Wah.

Dime was using the 535q before he had his signature wah. The Dime wah is a tweaked version of the 535Q.

Post by: mollenejosh on November 17, 2011, 07:45:30 AM
if i were you i'd go for ibanez. isipin mo na lang mga endorsers nito: steve vai, joe satriani, paul gilbert, etc.
una kong naging gitara yung ibanez gio 270bkn. i think ito ang pinaka-cheapest na 24 frets/floading bridge/H-S-H nila. got it for around 11k. solve na. pwede nang main axe for gigs. audio sample > http://soundcloud.com/daveabad/samp/ (distortion: boston eng'g. amp: marshall 10watts valvestate) nabenta ko na pala ito last year pa.
may nabili din ako dati dito sa philmusic na seller na ibanez rg350dx.

btw, di ko pa natry yung yamaha, pero sa tingin ko maganda rin naman ang yamaha. yan ang brand na gamit ni jack thammarat ngayon

Aria Pro II. no idea, so no comment.  :-)

dapat tinanong mo kung ano mga body ng 3 guitar na yan. at i feel mo muna kung ano ang swabe sa kamay mo.

kung alder maganda yan mga aria kasi alder karamihan mahirap magkaroon ng dings matibay na kahoy at katamtaman ang tunog ang basswood naman very soft hehe more in treble at middle kaya karamihan leadista itong gamit..

pero sa akin alder ang da best.
Title: Re: yamaha? ibanez? o Aria Pro II ?
Post by: porksisig on November 17, 2011, 10:11:55 AM
ario pro user here. and for 5k, it's a steal. it really depends on how you choose your guitar. for me, it really doesn't matter. kaya ko sya binili is para hindi ako manghinayang pag inupgrade ko yung parts nung guitar, a lot of ibanez parts are already ok na naman e kaya they're pricey.

thanks guys..I really like the CAE model..but its a little hard to find here..and a bit pricier..Im more of a bedroom hobbyist..so..I guess..the 535q is just enough for that wah craving every once in a while..

Sometimes a certain pedal would give you more than what you need. If you tweak the sweet spot you like , that's it! Likely you won't be changing the settings. But again a versatile wah is good to have, it's just like having a Swiss Army Knife.

Post by: lordpogi on November 17, 2011, 06:02:57 PM
that's your choice to make IMHO, go and try them out. better if you could do a a/b/c comparison, but go for the axe that you feel comfortable with sound and feel-wise.no two guitars are the same so weigh them based on their individuals strengths. BTW i got an ibanez RG and S series and a Aria semi hollow, I am currently eyeing a yamaha SG for christmas! cheers!

Autowah = space on your board.


I dunno.. I just like the control that a wah pedal offers. It just makes sense to me, especially if you want to go from cocked wah sound to some movement quickly.
Or maybe I just haven't tried the better auto wahs out there (3 Leaf Audio, Mad Professor).
Title: Re: wah or auto wah?

meron ding auto wah na parang phaser na steady ang rythm nia like the behringer ultra-wah. Good for funky clean rythms na gsto mo steady lang ang pag wah nia at hindi mo na kelngan pang apak apakan (nakakapagod) lalo na kapag sa buong kanta mo ilalagay.

pedal wah is more versatile because manual nga sia. :P hahaha anything goes from it.

Hey Ian :-) to start things off.. lyric or melody?

Are you talking about EA cables? Go for the Lyric HG, I say. Killer in clarity. EA cables aren't very flexible though, so that might be an inconvenience. Go for Vovox Sonorus Protect A or Van Den Hul Integration Hybrid instead. I've been using Vovox Link Protect A cables for the past three years and I haven't looked back since.

Lava doesn't carry Vovox anymore but here's a link to the new distributor of Vovox:

Zoom GFX-5 vs Zoom G2.1u.

Is it worth it to upgrade from g2.1u to gfx-5?

Pahelp naman.
Ano mga pros & cons ng gfx-5.
Di kaya ako luge pag nitrade ko sa gfx-5 ang G2.1u ko?

Help!

Help!
Need your opinions mga master.

Pros (vs. G2.1u): More effects
Cons: No improvement in the distortion/OD/fuzz tone

It's not much of an upgrade. A G7.1ut would be a good upgrade. Or maybe a GT-6/GT-8-GT-10.

I personally like the aqua puss better, just wanna know what you guys think about these 2 pedals.

I'd choose and still have the Carbon Copy because of:

- Longer delay times (CC's <= 600ms vs. AP's <= 300ms)
- Built-in modulation
- Smaller enclosure (if that really matters)

... And those first two factors are NECESSARY for the music I play.

Anyway, both pedals are designed by Jorge Tripps and true bypass (for the purists).

YMMV

Personally, I liked the Aqua Puss better. It seemed clearer to me. Although yun nga lang, up to 300 ms lang siya. And it will take more space. It really just sounded better to me.

I have a review in the delay thread here :)

'Di ko talaga gagamitin siya as a delay pedal, gagamitin ko siya pa tubig dun sa tone kapag solo time na, so 'di masyadong malaking factor para sakin yung delay..
Yung enclosure, oo nga ang laki niya compared sa mxr. :lol:

Cub10. Has a good master vol,you get to play with pre-amp and output gain staging a lil bit,also has class A/B power advantage so you'll probably be cleaner and louder than with the class A choices,moot point though if you mic when playing out.

Habol mo ba ang consistent na LP shape?

Kasi as far as I know, ibang-iba ang shape ng Agile AL compared sa tunay na LP. At least kung Epiphone, andun yung tunay na shape, save for the headstock.

Pero kung hindi naman factor yung consistency sa shape, them I'd also like to bet on the Agile. I've read nothing but good things on their 3000 series models, with respect to the price of course.

Quick poll lang guys, I'm currently in the process of setting up a new pedalboard (kakagaling lang sa multi)...
suggestions naman, ok lang kahit walang paliwanag pero kung sinisipag kayo magtype ok din :)...

I'm thinking of a pedalboard that would be good enough for a garage sound type (pero medyo clean at times) na bagsakan...oo contradicting haha...
plus a setup that would be versatile enough if ever magiba ng tugtugan in the future (evil laugh) haha...
anyway,baka 'di ko lang mapigilan GAS ko, parang gusto ko sila kunin lahat, but that would not be feasible...madami gastusin aside from gears...

so with that situation divide ko lang into two sections yung poll on where i need help...

sa Distortion + OD side ng board it's...

VS Jekyll and Hyde (as a package) versus VS Son of Hyde and VS Route 808 combo? (i know same brand pero may difference pa din siya malamang)
   or :-o
MXR Distortion+ versus Pro Co Rat 2 (distortion battle)
   or
BOSS OD-3 versus VS Route 808 (na naman?) (Overdrive standoff...'di ko na consider ang Ibanez TS dahil malamang 'yun ang mananalo) :wave:

sa Echo/Delay part...

BOSS DD-3 versus Digitech Digidelay (pwede ko 'din ilagay both compared to pedals listed below)
   or
Danelectro Reel Echo versus EH Memory Man (tape vs analog) :money:
   or
BOSS DD20 versus BOSS RT-20   :-o(malayo i know for delay vs leslie speaker, it's more like kung ano mas ok gastusan...masyado kasi mahal yung H&K Rotosphere, yun sana eh hehe)

and last part...

Transformer type PSU vs One Spot (joke lang, baka pati ito patulan nyo)

Ok, so ayun nga... I have some of the pedals stated above, pinagiisipan ko kung ano dapat i-dispose,ipamigay,itago,bilhin,i-swap,ilagay sa bubong etc...

marunong din naman po ako kumilatis ng audio quality...and I know the sound that i want...
ginawa ko lang itong poll pampalipas oras (and considering na baka wala din kayo magawa ay maisipan nyo magcomment/mag-suggest/mag-react(good or bad) it's all welcome.
another reason ay kung gagastusan ko ba ito o hindi hehehe...(aside from the reasons stated above)

factors that can be considered are quality,versatility/functionality, and of course its price...

fire away mga koya! hehehe

P.S. kung may masuggest kayo na ibang brands as alternative to the pedals stated oks din, sana mas mura ahehe...

Thanks!!!  :wave: :wave: :wave:

Title: Re: BOSS DD-20, LINE 6 DL4 or TC Nova Delay? Which is a better delay pedal/looper?

Budget?
Gusto ko ng malupit na looper. I'm thinking of buying a DL-4 because this video inspired me a lot.

I'm into looping kasi and DL-4 really got me. But nagbasa ako ng reviews sobrang ganda daw ng TC Nova Delay. Help me here folks. :)

Imo, if you want looping, get a dedicated looper instead :)

That said, I'm liking the long looper of my Timeline. Sayang lang walang "undo" feature.

Sa DD20 and DL4 kase may mga nakita akong 9.5k lang na 2nd hand. Alam ko ang Nova Delay 11k lang brand new.

thanks everyone for the replies!

opted for a Peavey Vypyr amp either the 75w or the 60w tube version. listened to the Valveking, and while the  tone was better, the Vypyr seemed better suited to my needs for the moment. the headphone out / USB output is a plus since I can't really make loud sounds in my place, while the 60w/75w output is loud enough for gigs.

it is weird how a Peavey Valveking 112 and a Marshall Class 5 differ so much in specs but are almost the same in price  :) tone is a really expensive thing to pay for...

Around 6.5k pag cash. :) Yung Cub kasi, low att na tube. Madali yung mag break up kaya yung cleans nun mas malamang sa hindi na talaga clean. Lalo pag HB-equipped ang gitara mo.

Cub10 na lang, if you want cleans.  Of the three cubs, this has the topography for what you need.  Class A single-ended amps are meant to be pushed.  If you run through pedals a lot, and especially OD pedals, the right tube amp will be better than any solid-state counterpart.  r_chino18 may say otherwise (peace tayo bro :-D, I know you like your PF's the way I like peavey transtubes), but at this point, all-tube is the right choice.. unless you're breaching into 40watts and above with solid-state options.

Hahaha. If the Cub10 was among the options, it'd be a tough choice between a PF15 or that. Pero since Cub8 vs PF15, I do think that the PF can dish out more versatility and toanz.

Having owned the PF15R and AC4TV (both of them already gone), I honestly miss the PF more. Haha. EQ is crazy good on that amp as opposed to a single "Tone" knob.

Yes bro. Really.

Naiisip ko nun, lamang lang yung AC4TV sa speaker size at mas maganda yung tunog niya (overdriven). Pero kung sa timpla timpla, mas madali sa PF. Feeling ko nga mas malakas din yung clean volume ng PF eh. Kasi sa AC4TV, mabilis talaga magbreakup yung tunog sa HBs (kahit nasa 4-watts na). Sa PF, useful yung Gain+Volume na knob niya kasi kung gusto mo talagang clean, babaan mo lang yung gain tapos taasan yung volume.

Tinalo ng PF15R sa clean volume yung Marshall MG30 nung minsan na tumugtog kami sa stage (open gym). Hahaha!


Hindi ko naman masyadong pine-praise yung PF15R, pero mas nagustuhan ko talaga siya kesa AC4TV. Bonus pa yung tremolo niya at spring reverb. :)
Try mo sa Audiophile Festival Mall, Alabang. Baka meron pa silang mga PF dun.

Hehe. Kaya nga sabi ko mas gusto ko yung AC4TV pag overdriven. Hindi ko naman sinasabing panget ang drive ng PF15R, kasi medyo ok naman siya pag naka 12" speaker ka. Pag 8", hindi lang ganun kaganda. Pero yung slight break up niya ay ok naman.

Kaya ang recommendation ko rin sa blues/rock setup mo ay PF15R+pedal.. hehe.. kasi maganda at pedal friendly talaga ang front ng PF. :)

Post by: siore on January 04, 2012, 04:21:48 PM
Yes bro. Really.

Naiisip ko nun, lamang lang yung AC4TV sa speaker size at mas maganda yung tunog niya (overdriven). Pero kung sa timpla timpla, mas madali sa PF. Feeling ko nga mas malakas din yung clean volume ng PF eh. Kasi sa AC4TV, mabilis talaga magbreakup yung tunog sa HBs (kahit nasa 4-watts na). Sa PF, useful yung Gain+Volume na knob niya kasi kung gusto mo talagang clean, babaan mo lang yung gain tapos taasan yung volume.

Tinalo ng PF15R sa clean volume yung Marshall MG30 nung minsan na tumugtog kami sa stage (open gym). Hahaha!


Hindi ko naman masyadong pine-praise yung PF15R, pero mas nagustuhan ko talaga siya kesa AC4TV. Bonus pa yung tremolo niya at spring reverb. :)
Try mo sa Audiophile Festival Mall, Alabang. Baka meron pa silang mga PF dun.

Re: Rage 258
Sorry bro, hindi ko pa nattry. Si Siore siguro mas mabibigyan ka ng insights jan. :)

Hehehe the silver transtubes are a touch brighter than the red ones.  But you can still set 'em up for a balanced clean sound.  Nice crunch tones still IMO, the touch dynamics are there, whether you play low to mid gain or mid gain to high gain, there's a lot of tones to enjoy especially with the voicings available..

somebody here wants to trade his bb preamp for the sansamp gt2.

i only use the gt2 for unknown situations and panget tlga amp and it has been proven to be effective for me. though naghihiss cya pag single coil gamit ko and naguup ng gain, its manageable. now i have an amp coming that will render this useless and im keen on the trade.. panalo na sa value kasi eh hehehe

how would you describe the bb preamp?  i heard its better than the bb+...  :roll:

I've never played them one after the other with the same guitar, gear, and at the same place/time. So I guess a more detailed comparison is not really in order.

That said, I've used Tortex since.. forever. haha they're cheap, great, and easily replaceable. I just recommend what I use and like. :)

If you really want a pick with very discernible differences, check out the Vpicks line. I use them almost exclusively these days.

Please help me choose between Roland CUBE-15XL, Line 6 Spider IV 15, Orange Crush PiX Series CR12L, Marshall MG15 or any good amps close to P6000 or less.

What I want:
- A loud amp for rehearsals.
- Works well with a distortion and reverb effects pedal without sounding like crap at high volumes.
- Not too expensive.

*built in effects (like distortion, tremolo, phazer, reverb) are not important since i have my own effects pedals.
*to be used in a medium sized room. a little bigger than the common rehearsal rooms.

So far, I'm interested on buying the Roland CUBE-15XL for P5900. But i haven't tried it yet because i am too shy to test it on high volumes. And the sales guy wanted me to get the P7000 Line6. Can anyone help me choose or suggest a better amp?

Get the Marshall Valvestate 8020 in the classifieds. :idea:  Marshall are loud, and they do sound better at high volume.  The valvestate will do you better than the MG series, IMO of course, and assuming it's in good condition.. And judging from your needs, you don't want a modeller.

You can find a Power Screamer for ~4k. :)

A close contender against the Route 808 would be the Vintage Screamer, since both are TS style pedals. Ultimate Drive is like a Fulltone OCD.

Since you want a Power Screamer, the best option would be the Visual Sound 808.

I tested the Visual Sound 808, but the Visual Sound Open Road is better. So I went for the Open Road instead.

Headroom.

In layman's terms, eto yung volume kung saan yung tunog mo ay "clean" pa rin. Kung meron kang dalawang solid state amp, yung isa 15 watts at yung isa 100 watts, pwedeng kaya nila makipagsabayan in terms of volume.

Pero at a given volume, mas "clean" yung tunog nung mas mataas ang wattage. Kunwari nilakasan mo, makakasabay yung 15-watter in terms of volume pero mapapansin mo na yung sound quality niya ay medyo madumi na or nagcclip at distorted kahit nasa clean channel ka lang. Pero yung 100-watter, clean pa rin ang tunog sa ganung volume.

Gets?

RJ. More consistent. More heft to it. And the body carve is closer to LP spec. Get the setneck standard or custom. It's king in that price range. But for your sake, save up to the 15k or so range for a used MIJ. The RJ headstock will always get flak. If you don't mind that go for it. At least with a MIJ guitar you can get better re-sale, regardless of tone or playability.

How much are the RJ's guitar btw, sir Siore, the ever helpful one? :D I thought they were still in the 8k-10k price range. I also thought the Fernandos are around 7k-9k. Am I right or am I so outdated? Thanks!

Both are good pedals. :)

JnH might be more versatile having 2 channels or pedals in one - OD and dist. If you like an Ibanez Tubscreamer and a Marshall Shredmaster, go for it.

Yung OCD naman, medyo high gain OD siya na maganda mag clean up sa volume knob. Kaya in essence, kung medyo malaro ka sa volume knob, parang two in one pedal na rin siya. Max volume for full gain, roll it down for a bit subtle gain and slightly soiled tones. Ika nga sa OCD, parang cranked plexi.

I see. The EP is great as an "always on" pedal (check out the threads on other forums and on here). That's how I used it. It isn't a totally clean boost - in fact, I wouldn't call it a clean boost even. I'd say it's more of a boost that can sweeten your sound (much like what the echoplex, which it emulates, does). It will not get as dirty as a COT. It won't get dirt much talaga. Siguro it can add grit/an edge to your clean tone, pero any dirt you might hear would be from your amp probably. I look at the COT as more of an od.

Hope that helps :)

Post by: siore on February 22, 2012, 12:32:24 PM
The cub12R and 8040 cover almost the same brit type tones.  But the laney comes with a 12"speaker, <1watt jack for low volume practicing, and all-tube signal path.  It will take gain boosts or OD pedals better.  The 8040 is a good amp too, but I firmly believe if the two are both affordable to you, you should get the cub12R.  The wattage isn't an issue, and I think they should be close in terms of volume and headroom.

The Empress has lots of tweaking options. The Source Audio one has presets though, seems cool. Price is right too. I've heard people say the Fromel Shape is good, especially with the buffer switch.

I just sold an old Maxon Parametric eq that was also pretty good.

The MXR graphic eqs are decent.

I guess it depends on your budget/needs.

Boss or MXR EQs are bang for the buck, IMHO. If budget is tight, Boston EQ will do the job.

I rarely see EQs on advanced pedalboards. Maybe their pedals or amps are enough for shaping.

for sound shaping, or for boost?

For sound shaping, go for graphic EQs.  A good cheap one is the Danelectro Fish and Chips. 

For boost, go for parametric EQs.  Parametric EQs have fewer frequency band options, but  you can set a specific center frequency, and adjust boost width.   Artec has a parametric EQ.

These are the cheapest I know of... I just don't know kung pasok sa budget mo.

I would go for the DD20. Para sakin, tonewise is better. DL4 has a volume drop. Although ok din tunog niya and there are more delays with the DL4, DD20 can still keep up. Ok rin lagyan ng external switch for more control.

LP or Strat? - just betweem, durability, maintenance, how long can you play it with it's weight, but more on the maintenance side, like i'm just wondering there are only few relic LP's and i can see more of strat relic's, is it because LP's don't look that good when relic'ed?

I think a tastefully done relic job on a LP is a thing of beauty. :)

That said, they're totally different guitars, imo. Tone, feel, weight, looks, etc are pretty different. Comes down to personal taste. I personally like Strats (grew up with them) but I do dig LP tones and looks.. Maybe I should pick one up in the future. haha

Seriously, it's comparing apples to oranges eh. Better to have both. In terms of which is more durable, that's really subjective. Depende yan sa klase ng hardware at sa pagkakagawa mismo nung gitara. Couple that with how the owner takes care/maintains/abuses his stuff.

the GAS answer.. haha

TC Electronics Polytune
Hardwire HT-6
Korg Pitchblack Poly

Which is the best polyphonic tuner among this bunch?

I haven't tried all three.. pero decent naman yung polytune that I had. Looks cool too.

That said, I can tune faster and more conveniently with my Turbo Tuner now :D After some time, the poly feature just seemed like a gimmick to me.. Di rin gaano kaeffective in terms of lessening tuning time. The TT just tracks much faster (no need to wait for the note to "lock on" or "catch up"). I'm not sure how much time that exactly saves, pero it does seem faster and less frustrating to me.

On a somewhat related note.. I find the iOS app ng polytune to be pretty good. Can't get it to work with my Apogee Jam for some reason, pero ok naman siya even with the mic ng phone lang.

I think the Hardwire looks.. bad. haha looks lang yun, never tried one

I'm gassing for an overdrive pedal to boost my HT5R Combo.  :-o

a. Xotic AC Booster
b. Maxon OD9
c. Xotic RC Booster

Napansin ko po sa paggamit ko ng SD-1 as booster sa OD channel, nasa 3 o'clock na po yung level nya, pero yung gain niya minimal lang, tapos gain po nung amp ko nasa 3 o'clock. Clean boost settings po ba yun? Parang sa pandinig ko po kasi di ko medyo nagustuhan kung sa SD-1 ako kukuha ng additional gain tapos set ko po amp gain ko sa 12 o'clock. Di ko nga lang po talaga sure kung maganda as gain booster yung AC, RC, or OD9.

Mas mahirap po pala mamili kapag malapit na dumating yung pambili mo ng gear.  :eek:

as far as i know (folks correct me if i'm wrong), the RC Booster is more of a clean boost. the AC Booster has the most gain among your 3 choices. the Maxon is a tubescreamer.

i'd go with the Maxon. i've read in a lot of reviews that it's one of the best tubescreamers around.

Yung gainawa mo dun na mataas ang level ng SD-1 tapos almost zero ang drive, that can be considered as a clean boost. Pero hindi naman magandang clean booster ang mga Tubescreamer-type pedals. Pero basically, ganyan maeexperience mo pag clean boost ginamit mo.

Mas maganda gamitin ang clean booster kung ang amp mo ay clean ay slightly overdriven lang. As in slightly. Ipupush mo lang talaga siya konti.

Kaya parang minimal lang yung difference na narining mo sa "clean boost" ng SD-1, kasi sobrang dami nang gain nung Blackstar mo.

Gets mo ba?

Kumbaga, what's more to add sa gain eh ang dami na niyang gain. Read on headroom.

You don't use a clean booster sa front ng amp na maraming gain kasi wala kang maririnig na difference.

If I were you, scrap ko na ang RC (Really Clean) Booster at AC (Almost Clean) Booster ng Xotic kasi ganyan lang din makukuha mong tunog. Hindi mo lang din magugustuhan. Most people use those pedal for subtle gain stuff, hindi "pang enhance ng super high gain tone". Kung ilalagay mo ang clean booster sa effects loop, ang magiging function nun ay volume boost.

If you were to get a Maxon OD9, parang extra fancy SD-1 lang siya. Your choice. Kung ano naibibigay sayo ngayon ng SD-1, baka halos ganun lang din maibigay ng OD9 +/- a few fine tuning.

not necessarily a review but the features of each one. with a price difference that big (about $400 in MF), there's bound to be significant difference in terms of features. why don't you start by comparing that, instead of looking for reviews and demos?

I'll answer your PM tomorrow. Medyo busy lang ako ngayon sa manuscript bro.

If you want that kind of 3-channel amp setup....just go for a POD HD.. Kahit HD300 or 400.

Pero as before, you can get that 2nd and 3rd channel sa effective na pag roll ng volume pot.
Or just set your amp's gain to max for #3. Then use your SD-1 for #2.

Tried the snark.  I thought it's pretty good.  Although my comparison was based on that and my Korg Pitchjack (plugs into guitar).  Mabilis sya gamitin.  Although I'm more keen to rely on the pitchjack.  Sometimes kasi the Snark doesn't pick up the vibrations well, and you may have moments that you get no reading.  Sandali ko lang sinubukan, mind you.  But I think that's the best way to try out tuners that you'll use in live situations, if you find it quick and easy to use right off the bat.  I think the Snark is just that.  Price is hella nice too.

Mismo. Minsan kahit ang lakas na ng pluck mo sa string, wala pa ring reading yung Snark. That's on thing kaya natatalo siya ng Samson CT20, imo. Kasi sa Samson mabilis at madali magtrack ng vibrations.

Aling models mismo sir? You know that changing pickups to "branded" ones don't necessarily mean an upgrade. It changes the tone. But sometimes, it may or may not be called an upgrade.

Cube 15xl has more functionalities than the PF15R. kung habol mo ang moooooooooooore lead, may extreme and metal setting ang 15XL.  pwedeng pwede sayo yun.

IMO not always. there are pickups that have a distinct voice that remains the same across all amps.

I was torn din sa dalawang yan bago ako bumili. Nagbasa-basa rin ako sa ibang forums kung alin mas maganda. 80% would always say na mas maganda yung Mean 90. "Basura" (no offense sa users) daw yung Dream90 kumpara sa Mean90. Actually, kinukumpara din yung Mean90 sa ibang branded na HB-sized P90 (Phat Cats, Gibson P94(?), etc...). Ang sinasabi nila eh para sa presyo ng Mean90, sulit na sulit na daw siya in comparison dun sa mga ibang mas mahal na branded.

I had a pair of Mean 90s din dati.

I'm looking for the best bang for buck, pedal-friendly, low-watt head plus stack combo not more than $1000USD to replace my Roland Cube 20XL. I mostly play classic heavy/thrash/power metal and a sucker for classical music. I realized that I need an entry level head & stack first to practice with and get a general feel of tube amps in general before acquiring those mid/high end Marshalls, Mesa Boogies, etc.

Orange Tiny Terror + PPC112 Cab
Laney Cub Head + Cub Cab
Marshall Class 5 + C110 Cab
Blackstar Ministack HT5
Fender Super Champ X2 + SC112 Cab
Peavey ValveKing 100 + 412 Cab
Vox Night Train NT50H + V112NT Cab

This is just the preliminary list I came up with after some short browsing. I would prefer the experts' advice on this matter, thanks :)

If the amp drive sounds better than my distortion pedal then why not? Generally I'm not a big fan of putting a distortion pedal when the amp head's drive is already adequate. I just noticed that some of the heads I browsed have like 3-4 knobs with no gain knob/clean channel only.

Amp drive = good enough/better -> throw distortion pedal out of the loop
Amp drive = none/suck -> keep dirt pedal in the loop

Maybe it's just me but among the options, I'd definitely go for the VK head + 4x12 cab.

Thanks sir but those options are just the first stuff I've seen so if you've got your own personal suggestions I would like to hear it  :cute:

my vote goes to the Vox NT50H. Vox chimey cleans and sick drive channel.  :)

The Valveking and the Night Train both have high wattages. My second choice would be the Vox, though.

I went with the VK because of the wattage. You'll never know when you'll need that extra power. Syempre, the effects loop is always handy sa amp. Downside lang ay yung 4x12 cab. Maybe you can get away with a 2x12 cab para mas madali itransport at mas friendly sa medyo tight spaces.

The VK also has an ok drive channel with lots of gain. May potential lang yung amp na yun para sa akin. Lalo na para dun sa mga nabanggit mong genre na medyo leaning towards a "heavy" sound. Definitely the VK will deliver.

good sir pray tell that you heed my advice
the marshall class 5's gain will not suffice
if you play the brootz choose the blackstar
'tis the amp for metal guitar.

between what is excessive and what is not
it depends on the show that you will have wrought

From your choices...
Tone-wise, go for Boss.
if you save a little bit more, better go for the ME70.

Other peoples' opinion are ok, but it will boil down to your personal preference.
The internet has lots of info you need.
Manufacturer websites have audio samples for you to try & check for yourself.
See & compare specs as well (side-by-side-by-side) for this matter.
So, get all your info on the net before deciding.

But if its possible to sample the gear personally, go ahead.
Don't worry about the sales person, as long as you have your money ready. Its always good to try out the gear first-hand.
and let your ear be the critic & decide.

happy multi-effects hunting :D

 ive tried ME-70 nahirapan ako medyo nabitinan ako sa options.maganda tunog nya effects wise. sa dirt lang nya ang di ko gusto.
 sa digitech naman hirap itimpla di ako makakuha ng high gain. saka pala pangit ng footswitch ng 355. brand new yung akin pagsobra sa tapak umiipit. damn. naalala ko magaadlib nako saka siya umipit naglilipat ng patches. haha. kakahiya.

Post by: gandydancer123 on March 19, 2012, 11:07:29 PM
I have a G3, ok kasi parang analog yung interface..heavy wah user ka ba?or kailangan mo ba ng volume pedal sa songs ninyo? kung ganun..mag Boss ka na built in na yung expression pedal..palagay ko ok na yung Boss Me25 sa iyo..I mean sa gig ilang pang effects ang gagamitin mo the most 5 emulations lang..and totoo take into consideration yung ease of transport..peeve ko din yung super complikado at malalaking gears na bitbitbit..kesa magenjoy ka kasama tropa after gig kailangan mo magbitbit..

Im very happy with the G3, so many great patches..and effects pedals to choose from...I never gigged with it yet though..first time ko lang kasi makaiskor ng multi eh..so di ko pa gamay..play safe muna ako sa analogs...

Actually ngayon..yung modulations dun ko kinukuha..last on my chain yung G3..plus saya gamitin yung rhythm and looper..If you want the feel of pedals..go G3....actually sanayan lang kahit ano mabili mo..I think these 3 are pretty much in par with each other...goodluck!

I think i can butt in i had 2 me-25 before na dumaan sa mga palad ko, yung isa traded kay sir moncseb para sa rp355 niya the other one binenta ko 2 months ago, then i had a G3 na tnrade ko kay sir KASALANAN para sa Line6 m13 niya kasi mashado daw bulky yung m13. .Ok! eto ang findings ko it all depends on your music,

ME25 good drives like the rectifier tone w/ a metal core in front, pero bitin sa delays kasi isang class lang ng delay w/c is digital delay, modulation ok naman, yung boost parang walang kwenta, reverbs basic lang, pero madaling itweak

RP355 good amp sim, nice cleans, rectifier tone ang ganda comparable sa PODHD500 ko ngaun yun lang mejo may digital fizz na siya ganda ng EQ din may feature for MID boost pati MID scooped para di mo mo na kelangan mag tweak ng EQ iturn mo lang yung knob nka scooped kana or nka boost, ganda ng editing software din neto, as far as i remember wala yatang tap tempo to for delays, ganda rin ng reverbs almost studio grade ang reverbs, daming amp sim pero konti lang ang usefull, daming modulation at delays, puede pa yung stompbox mode na walang kwenta hehe :)

ZOOM G3 Amp sim for cleans ang ganda like the AC30, fender vibro, pero di siya talaga clean na clean may konting breakup & dark siya w/c i personally like hehe, delay ganda all kinds of delays, reverb ganda rin good for ambient swells, tubescreamer ganda rin pero mashadong harsh, nice unit pero BITIN! yung mga high gain amps niya di bale nalang hehe puro fizz, kelangan talga may external stomp ka for your dirt im using sansamp gt2 for my dirt and modulation pati delays lang talaga yung g3. .

ayan kung ako papipiliin G3 w/ external dirt ako based on tone preference yan ha kasi obvious namn sa functionality pati flexibility kulang ang g3 pero tone wise? Go for G3 yun lang :)

Post by: bellcross on March 20, 2012, 12:15:11 PM
tone, functionality and ease of use wise, go for the ME70 na!, on manual mode you will have 4 different pedals + expression + pre-amp + separate reverb and finally a Noise gate... in one box... been using mine for almost 2 years, and awsome tlga ang tunog, dirts are comparable to regular boss stomps, Looper is sooo useful, and also comes with a Tap delay good for dotted 8ths, add in a FS-6, you could turn on and off the pre-amp and make it a separate dirt, also turn on and off the reverb.. you could also use it for recording purposes with its direct record out.

go for the ME70!!!  :-D\m/


and....

paPLUG na din! haha bka lng interested ka... i'm selling my mint condish Me70... hehe... di ka magsisisi bro, im just selling it kasi di ko na xa nagagamit, wala gano gigs, sayang naman... :razz: :razz:

Salamat po sa lahat ng nagbigay ng inputs..as of now pinag iisipan ko pa rin po mabuti..i tried na po yung G3 at Rp355.
So far mas ok sa akin ang tunog ng G3,or maybe hindi ko lang natweak ng maayos ang rp355..hehehehehe. 1st impression ko pa
lang sa zoom eh good agad..but still i need to try boss me 25,then soon mgdedecide na rin ako..Talagang meron mga downsides
ang bawat isa,pero importante lang naman kung anong magfifit sa preferences ko. Yun as of now G3 ang nasa top ng list ko..
Salamat again sa lahat!

I have a Biyang Aqua Chorus..and I must say..its pretty generic..it doesnt blow your mind away..so so..I havent heard the line 6 yet it looks more bang for the buck...build wise the biyang chorus is pretty much your average chinese pedal..similar to belcats and joyos..its small and light (which is good) graphics and paint are just so so...the knobs are cheapish..and pots are quite loose..so a little touch of your shoe could move the knobs a bit...looking at the line six, its built like a tank..Id say if you could get a biyang for presyong addict go for it..its your usual chorus pedal..but if sold higher Id rather choose the line 6 even I havent listened to how its sounds like yet..hahaha basing on its looks and "brand name"
Thanks bro. Both are being sold to me at the same price. Naturnoff lang ako dun sa line6 kasi kelangan daw isolated yung power supply. One spot gamit ko e. That would be an incovenience.

Isolated dahil? iba yung voltage? or may quirkiness siya? anyway..you could try the biyang..gets the job done naman..magaan, pero very mass produced -chinesey yung build quality..

Anyone here had experience in using the Line 6 M9/M13 and the TC Electronics Nova System? I read the the nova system has better drives then pair it digital modulation and time effects that made TC Electronics famous. Line 6 M series has a looper, line 6 also made great delays and reverbs.

I was reading up and i didn't see any amp sim or both, or maybe i just missed it.

thoughts would be very much appreciated  :)

It depends on what you need.  Can you give an example of analog?  Yung analog for me means yung may pendulum and walang battery na ginagamit usually with piano.  medyo malaki sya and bulky.  i think you commonly have only digital.  I think what's more important in a metronome is if madidinig mo sya habang nagp practice ka.  If you need portability, go digital.

"This or that" question:

I have tried the Laney Ironheart 120watts head with the Ironheart 4x12 cab today, and I was blown away.  I want to buy the head, but the 4x12 cab is just too much for me.

If I buy a 2x12 cab, say Blackstar, VHT, Fender, or r_chino's DIY cab, will the sound be that far from the Laney 4x12 cab? (it uses custom HH speakers).  If for example I just connect the head to the 16 ohm speaker of my Valveking VK112, will that also work?  And how far will the sound be using the VK112's chasis vs. other 2x12s?

I'm also considering the Ironheart combo with 2x12, pero the Ironheart Head looks 10x cooler  :-D

Appreciate any inputs to this "this or that" question

There's a VHT 2x1`2 cab sa classifieds ngayon for around 16k neg. I'd definitely put it on my list. It's sporting a pair of Celestion G12H-30 speaker. AFAIK, birch ply din ang gamit dun sa VHT cab na yun. Definitely better than mine, if you ask me.

For the other question, that would work. There's a certain hugeness of sound that a 2x12 provides which is really different from an open back 1x12.  :-)
Parang mas may surround.

Yup.  I tried the IRT120 head and 4x12 cab at Park Square.  Then meron sila 60watts 2x12 combo sa MOA.

Maganda yung amp, very versatile.  It is advertised as a metal amp, but I think it can also do other things.

Mr. Siore, I tried the Ironheart combo.  It's okay, but I ended up buying the Blackstar HT40.  For me, leaps and bounds yung difference sa sound.  You can do so much more with the HT40.  It's the first time in 10 yrs that I really understood the term "invest in a good amp".  This is the first amp I had worthy of mic'ing (or not because of the emulated output). I have always recorded guitars using software modeling (line6, boss, digitech).

Post by: siore on March 29, 2012, 10:04:48 AM
Congrats on the NAD!!  It's certainly a well-designed amp with truly usable features.  IMHO I think it's one of the amps that can do high-gain really well, in a price range that's reasonable.  Others in that range tend to need pedals to do what the Blackstar HT series can.

Baka SG G-400 yang 20-24k na yan. I doubt kung G-310 yun kasi low end lang ang 310. Around $250 lang yan.

My opinion, parang walang dating ang SG na dot inlays. Iba pa rin pag Standard siya na may trapeze inlays at bound neck. Kaya para sa akin, I'd look for an SG sporting those features muna before trying out the playability and whatnot.

+1000. I agree.

In addition, IMO, I think the general consensus is that the Korean Grass Roots are better than the China even korean Epiphones. You can say that i'm being bias since i'm selling a  grassroots SG.18K reasonable for a grassroots SG? I'd say it will be worth it. You can purchase a cheap price grassroots SG for 12,+++ php years back at ishibashi but the shipping(tokyo to Philippines) will cost you a lot + the custom tax you have to pay upon pickup of your guitar. This goes for all the guitar that you will order from their site. Currently they are selling this brand at around 18-20K both in ishibashi and rakuten. If you want to have a price comparison between the two, i'd say you check ebay international where you would find a real deal. As for the epiphone G-310, i never own one so i guess no comment ako..PM me if you're already decided.hahaha.

All of those are nice pedal platforms, but I'd go cub10 for the all-tube circuitry. You'll never benchmark a solidstate amp if you haven't had a nice tube combo to appreciate. As well as being a clean platform for dirt, you can also set it on the verge of crunch, and push the input or power section over the top with an overdrive, for a more dynamic and responsive playing setup. You'll learn also how important it is to balance the different elements in the gain stages of a tube amp, rather than just an analog device trying to mimic how it responds. Ex. What happens to tone and picking sensitivity as you push the gain? Where's the sweet spot in the master volume? At what point does it turn everything to mush, and i should be careful around with? How do different tubes affect the character? Etc. Etc.

Assuming you have the same price ranges to consider, the tube amp gives you the best value IMO. It just takes time to find tone that works, and analog might leave you second-guessing whether you should have gotten a tube amp instead. With tube gain stages, all it takes now is how you shape it, from your guitar, pickups, amp controls, speakers, tubes, and cables. Tone is much more personal, and believe me it inspires more. Although, kung gusto mo makamura, the cheaper solidstate amps can also sound good and deliver what you need. If you're considering PF15, you might look into peavey transtubes. I had a blazer 158 before, and when I hooked it to a 2x12 cab, it was a beast!

so my options are valveking 112 20k, peavey bandit 18k, and ibanez tsa30 16k

i got my prices from the facebook page of audiophile sm north edsa  :lol: i'm pretty sure these can all do metal and are loud enough for band situations but i'm just gonna ask you guys what you think  ^-^

Yung head and amp, mga 17,900 yata - TSA15H + cab.  Pero kasi meron din nung combo.  TSA30 is 17k I think, and then yung TSA15 combo should be cheaper, baka 14 or 15k yata.

E Burst is the way to go. Tried one and loved it. Beyond my price range though (like most things) You can also go for TS808 for a smoother OD. You can use it for a boost, too.

Actually, OK na yang FD2. What happened to the Timmy GAS?

I GASed for Jekyll and Hyde for quite some time, and what attracted me was the two stage distortion.  Sobrang gusto ko talaga.  pero when I checked youtube for demo (when they released version 2), medyo mas Fuzz yung sound nya so after that, nawalan na ako ng interest.  So I can relate to what you said.  I guess depends on what people like.  I think the distortion it produces is suitable for some genres of modern rock music.  The other scoop that I heard when buying OD-20 from a forumite is that the guitarist of Urban Dub now uses Jekyll & Hyde, kaya sumisikat yung pedal.  Before daw kasi, OD-20 yung gamit nya, tapos biglang benta nung OD-20 when the guy from Urban Dub (not sure if the vocalist or the other guitarist) switched to Jekyll & Hyde.

RP355!  I have tried both.  What's good about 355 vs. me-25. 
- Usability - when editing patches, you know what you are editing.  With ME-25, you have to memorize some of the parameters because you only have the two digit LED display.  Also, the patch names can be remembered better with RP355 because you can put names.
- Usability - you have patch and stomp mode and you have amp/EQ A and B in one patch
- Usability - it has a usable mixer out (line or XLR) and it sounds better than the phones out of ME-25
- And more importantly - RP355 sounds good right out of the box, not a lot of tweaking needed
Other comparison points:
- Both have sound library, so easy to quickly dial a sound
- ME-25 has a freeze pedal, which RP355 do not have, I guess yun lang yung advantage nya.

Talaga bro?  Snark is the best clip tuner I found, and I bought multiple snarks for my guitars.  It's the fastest one that I found, and it is cheap.  My snark tunes faster than my Ibanez LU20, and as fast as my TC Electronic Polytune (snark is more accurate than my polytune in poly mode).

Nahirapan kasi ako nung nakatry ako ng snark. When I tried it, I wasnt just tuning. I was actually restringing a guitar at medyo nahirapan ako. Ayun din siguro sa intonation. Mas gugustuhin mo mayroon akong malaking screen for tuning.

Keeley Boss BD-2 or Fulltone OCD?

I'm thinking between those two. and ok ba yung Keeley mod ni MarkV sa BD2? I'm playing at church, more of Hillsong tugtugan kaya TS type pedal gamit ko (TS9 and Fulldrive 2 mosfet). but I'm planning to add a pretty transparent and different character OD. sa 2 yan ang bagsak ko. hehe.. or if you have any suggestions on what pedal can give different character on my sound.  yung medyo affordable.. from 3 - 6k lang ang budget. hehe..

consider mo din sir na unahin yung delay bago reverb. you can do more with a delay pedal than a reverb.

+1 most amps have a reverb, it might be enough for your needs, so delay would be a good next pedal.

+1 sa Aqua Puss

But you must know it's limitations. Sobrang iksi ng delay time niya. Parang mala slapback lang. It won't be able to do long or lengthy delays kung yun ang hanap niya. But it's a cool delay pedal for it's application, ganda pa ng enclosure.

Depends on what you really want if they're on the same price range.

Ibanez S320: Mahogany body
Custom 350: Basswood with flamed maple top

I like mahogany better, but I want the flamed maple top. It's just so sexy.

Ibanez S320: ZR trem
Custom 350: Floyd Rose Special

Haven't really tried the ZR trem, but the FRS seems to keep the guitar in tune.

Ibanez S320: without coil tap
Custom 350: with coil tap

I don't really use coil tap, but you might find it usable. Compare mo na lang yung dalawa kung ano talaga mas gusto mo. For sure sa dalawang yan, may mas matimbang para sayo. :-)

it will always depend on the type of music you play. from my experience, the satchurator works best with humbuckers. sa single coils, hindi ko masyado nagustuhan pag stand-alone siya. but it's a perfect gain booster for another OD.

After diving through countless pages here in PhilMusic and beyond, I ask upon the experts in this forum on which of these H-S-H combinations would work best theoretically on a standard superstrat (Alder body, 24 frets, rosewood, floyd rose, etc.). I'm also open to suggestions, preferably from SD and Dimarzio users here :)

Seymour Duncan SH-2N (N) - Classic Stack Plus (M) - SH-4 JB (B)
Bareknuckle Warpig (N) - BK Trilogy (M) - BK Warpig (B) <- Tim of BKP also suggested using the Painkiller set as an alternative to the Warpigs
Dimarzio DP103 PAF (N) - DP 117 HS-3 (M) - DP100 SD (B)

I still haven't received a reply from WCR yet, I really liked those Ice Buckers but I'm lost on which single coil to get so I asked them :)

Try looking for D.I.Y. Phasers it will set you back at most 2k and then get a tuner like a Snark or Pitchclip for around 550-800

lately, i've seen the following at the local malls:

Takamine G Series
Ibanez Artwood, EW and AEL Series
a Fender CD60CE

i have a maximum budget of 15k. Any insights and suggestions would be of great help.

Ibanez acoustics have the worst electronics, di pa kagandahan ng setup. They sound good (plugged) but are entirely unreliable. Baka bigla kang mamatayan sa gig, kahit bago battery. I dare say, stay away from them. Unless you have plans to invest a couple thousand more for a better and more reliable set of electronics.

+3 ako dito.  I bought AEL10, my friend AEL40, and my cousin AEL20, lahat ng preamps namin sira na (o diba Ibanez fans kami, hehe).  Even yung Euphoria EP9 ko, minsan sinusumpong, hindi tumutunog buti na lang di pa nasisira.  I don't know lang if the new pre amps are any better.

Yung Takamine naman, experience ko with the midrange models, hindi masyado pulido ang gawa.  I have a friend na G series, ang dami inayos ni Mang Jun sa setup at sukat.  My Acoustic bass na Takamine ganun din.  Get a Yamaha, in my experience sya yung pinaka matibay, even the pre-amp.  I had an APX3 before 7 yrs na ayus na ayus pa din.  And I have APX5NA and LLX6A - never ako nagka problem.  And yung last two guitars, in all my guitars yun lang sabi ni Mang Jun na di na kelangan i-setup kasi walang problem.  Problem lang with Yamaha is hindi masyado pogi, simple lang, hehe (Except the CPX series).

Bro, you can go to yupangco, baka meron may naka sale.  I know their APX500 goes down to 15k, especially summer swing out sale ngayon.  Or you can check out sulit and Philmusic classifieds for used gear.

Can't comment about the Takamine vs. Ovation, but I know a friend who has an Applause slim body Ovation, ok pa din yung guitar nya until now.  And so far naman, yung electronics nung Takamine ko is still working fine (medyo 1+ year na sya).

Anyway, try each one out, kung saan ka mag bond, that's what you buy.  By the way, I just saw the AEL10 last night and they changed the preamps na.  Maybe the electronics improved already.  The thing with Ibanez is that they look and sound so good it is so hard to resist.

questions to anyone who tried them both already

Crowther Hotcake vs fulltone OCD

I love the ocd, and fits my playing and setup well, but been gassing for a hotcake for a while
how do they differ?, or the similarities, even though I know both are totally different.

I know both of them can go from low gain to more distortion territory
also based on what i read about the hotcake, that it can retain the bass freq well, same as the OCD.
the picking dynamic is what i dont know, ocd is pretty sensitive to your pick attack, does the hotcake have those properties too?
or its more like a ts ?.

im not really gonna ditch the ocd, but the hot cake is pretty, and im just gassing haha,.

Stick with the OCD if you found your tone already. If they have almost the same sound and you think think the Hotcake is more pretty then it's just GAS attack and not tone preference.

kung pagbabasehan ko ang line6 spider 3 na 30watts [1x12 combo] ng kabarkada ko na nagbaband rehearsal sa kwarto ng drummer e no problem. yung drummer pa pati e hard hitting at tugtugan pa nila e hard rock/grunge. so malaki ang chance na makakayanan din ng marshall 30 watts yan. try mo sa JB lakasan tanchahin mo na lang.

hhmmm siguro kaya rin kasi same lang yung watts e mas maganda lang siguro yung bass response ng 12" speaker. pero para sigurado try mo yung mga at least 60 watts solid state kung tube baka 20-30 watts. antay pa tayo ng mga reply ng mga experts. kasi ako kung may 12" speaker combo sa studio binababa ko rin yung bass eq tapos halos 3 oclock ang mids so baka ok na rin yung 10". base kasi sa experience ko ang lamang ng 12" speaker mas ma-bass in general.

Mga 7-8k ($150-170).  Not sure if meron dito sa pinas though.  Baka sa JB, pero I'm sure mas mahal.  Try mo din shippers dito sa Philmusic (e.g. Bossingboss).  They can buy and ship the items to you, pero syempre may shipping fee, so baka umabot ka ng mga 10k.  Sulit na yun, kasi it looks like the MC404 is a two-in-one wah :-)

Gamit ko RG350DX (Tone Zone; FRED) tsaka Blackstar HT-5R combo.

Gamitin ko sana pangboost sa OD Channel.
Yung RC Booster ko kasi, as a gain boost, may additional na gain,
pero wala gaanong attack tsaka tightness sa sound.

Habol kong sound yung parang kay PG.

Di ko rin sure kung sa speaker, pero magupgrade din ako to celestion v30 or eminence.

of if you can't try them out yourself, you can listen to video demos of each pedal to give you an idea on how they sound and their possible applications.

Marshall 8080 or 8040.

Ayon sa nabasa ko mas maganda daw talaga sounds nung mga original at unang valvestate series.
Pedal friendly, lakas pa.
Kaya lang di pa ako nakagamit ng AVT50 kaya di ko macompare.

Peavey Blazer, Line6 Spider III, Peavey bandit, tsaka 8080  pa lang nagamit kong solid state.

Kinain ng 8080 yung Blazer tsaka Spider III, (wala nga namang laban yung 8in. sa 12in speaker..)  :eek:

pero bandit tsaka 8080 halos parehong maganda sounds.  :razz:

Maganda ang fd2 Kung medyo classic low od hanap mo, transparent yan although maraming switch very little ang difference. Mas usable sa kin ang fd2 for live/loud application, di masyado pang bedroom.

Yun OCD distortion na sya. Medyo fizzy pag high gain mo gamitin. Pero pag subtle LNG with a little gain from amp ayos sin sya.

Naka mini stack ka ba? If yes Bili ka ng maganda ng speaker cable, olats yun stock cable ng ht5.

Gamitin ko po sana yung mga overdrive options ko po sa OD Channel po nung amp ko, mga nasa mid gain settings po sir.

HT-5R combo po yung amp ko sir. Balak ko nga po sana bumili ng V30 sa ads, ala nga lang pong lumalabas. medyo masikip daw ung V30 sa combo, halos dikit na sa power tubes yung magnet structure diameter. gusto ko sana yung eminence, kaya lang di ako sure kung kakasya yung Governor sa HT-5R.  :cry:

Peavey Bandit 112 or Blackstar HT-5RH with HT-112 cab?

Gusto ko na ng Blackstar, but the thing is, takot ako sa maintenance ng tube amp (tube replacement that requires biasing). Tapos meron pa posts sa Blackstar thread regarding some issues at problema.

Should I take the risk and get the Blackstar? or for my peace of mind, get the Bandit?

Sa HT5, talo ka sa headroom. That's all I can think of. Baka lumubog din sa mix unless naka mic.

Blackstar.

Halos 8months na yung HT-5R combo ko pero wala pa namang problema sa tubes niya.
Yun nga lang sa kwarto ko lang ginagamit, around 9am yung volume.
Pero nalabas ko na siya para sa rehearsal.
Pwede namang imic kung meron.

Nakatry na ako nung Bandit tsaka ng Valvestate 8080 bago pa ako magkablackstar.
Pero nung nakuha ko yung amp ko, yun na!  :razz:

Well, ayun nga, baka mahirapan ka lang with headroom with the HT5, depending on your uses.

The Bandit's pretty reliable. Ganun yung laging nasa rehearsal spaces at naaabuso talaga sila.

Don't be worried about tube amp maintenance.. It's probably not as bad as yout hink (or not bad at all). These things can last a generation without severe abuse. :)

+1.  I've had tube amps for a while, and wala pa naman nasira.  And about headroom, I compared my friend's TSA15 15W tube amp vs. my 40watts blackstar HT40.  His volume is 3 o'clock (75%) almost breaking up, while my HT40 is only at 9 o'clock (25%), and the volume is not yet band volume.  So a 5-watt HT might have a problem with headroom if you play with a band (although theoretical lang yung sagot ko, check the blackstar thread for HT5 users).  Small bar amp volume with band is around 50% of a 50-watt tube amp in my experience.

Blackstar HT5 and HT-20 won't require any bias adjustment pag nagpalit ng tubes. Plug and play ka lang ng tubes dun. Sa HT-40 and up ka pa magbbias pag papalitan ang poweramp tubes.

Regarding maintenance, it does require some from time to time.. for a low-watt tube amp, hindi siya kasing hhigh maintenance ng mga mas matataas ang wattage.. Not to mention, hindi masyadong masakit sa bulsa pag magpapalit ng tubes kasi kokonti lang tubes niya..

If I were to choose, the Bandit would be fine and would be more versatile lalo na kung may intention na gamitin for unmic'd gigs..  :-)

Help mga sir!

I'm looking for my 3rd OD. Gusto ko sana yung ok kapag pang-clean boost with a little bit of overdriven sound on it. Tight budget ako sa mga panahon ito hehe, mga 2k to 2,5k lang budget eh. I'm eyeing on GFS Greenie Classic Overdrive and Boss SD1. Ano ba mas ok sa kanila? I have Fulltone Fulldrive II Mosfet and Ibanez TS9 on my board, pero naiinis ako na yuyuko pa kapag iseset lang FD2 ko for lower gain, kasi i preferred na Mid gain drive and pang boost ko for solos yung TS9.. so i need another drive.. i love TS type pedal BTW.hahaha..

any suggestion?? thanks!

Gusto ko sana ng VL Sparkle Drive pero ang mahal eh, hehe. almost 6k. tight budget.  :-(

Sir tanong lang, buying a brands new effects pedal. Namimili po ako sa Zoom G1xn at sa Digiteh Rp90, how would you compare the two in features, and the ease of use (playing live) and durability. Thanks :)  :-D

Hindi redundant ts drives for you?

The sd1 kinda fits the bill. :) or pwede rin
