  • Carvin X-100B

    Carvin X-100B - "Series IV- A Top Amp at Any Price Point"

    07/18/18

    The Carvin X100B Series IV amp is a terrific all-around amp that does everything well. While previous versions of the X-amp had some quirks, they got it right with the Series IV. Very loud amp, beautiful warm clean tone, very nice complex high gain l…

    Soldano Hot Rod 50 - "Fantastic Amp- Killer Tones"

    07/18/18

    My first +$1000 amp was a 1994 single channel Soldano Hot Rod 50. Fantastic amp. Granted it was hard to get clean tones out of it at any loud volume, the overdriven tones were wonderful. Mid focused, squishy complex tones. Great, great lead tones. I'…

    Soldano SLO-100 Super Lead Overdrive - "A Legendary Amp For a Reason"

    07/18/18

    Mike Soldano builds wonderful products. The SLO is a legend for a reason....killer tones and robust build quality. In recent years I've owned Soldano SLOs (2), Soldano Hot Rod 50, Bogner Ecstasy, Carvins, Peaveys, etc and can attest that every amp ha…

    Peavey Classic 50/410 - Tweed - "Very Nice Amp- Great Value"

    07/18/18

    First, the review posted by iamqman here is dead on, this amp has a beautiful warm clean with a mild EL84 overdrive on Channel 2. Very much targeted at country and mild rock applications (great tones for jazz too). I have the 4x10, and depending on t…

    DigiTech RP100 - "A Nice Value For the Money"

    07/18/18

    Considering this unit has a little built in drum machine, for the low price (available used for $20-$50), its a great value. Nothing like playing along to drum tracks to improve your playing and improvisation. As a multi effects unit, it has alot of …

    Mapex VENUS SERIES - "This has got to be the best beginner kit out there?!?" has images

    07/17/18

    Okay, I would be very surprised to find a better entry-level kit especially after seeing that you can buy these for $200!! I originally bought mine for drummers to come over and jam with me on guitar.….I replaced the original snare with a 1960's Slin…

    Dr. Scientist BitQuest! - "Dozens of sounds for multiple patches - a tweakers dream!" has images

    07/16/18

    SOUND: Below is a YouTube video that demonstrates some multi-layering of tracks while using each of the patches or effects: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B-RsjcjyWEQ Many of the patches are very unique in what they offer or can offer (as you…

  • Rainger FX Reverb-X

    Rainger FX Reverb-X - "Plenty of features in a micro-sized pedal" has images

    07/16/18

    SOUND: The Reverb-X by Rainger FX is is very basic in terms of the reverb ‘sound,’ as well as being clear and obvious (certainly not muddy). Some reverbs can be too much and necessitate a clean guitar signal – otherwise, the tone gets lost. Reverb…

    Marshall Shred Master - "So glad I held onto this pedal!"

    07/05/18

    I bought this from a friend along with a Roland JC 120 a long time ago now, it was my first "bigger" amp and with this pedal I was in heaven. Not too long after I started making payments on my first Marshall halfstack, a 1st gen 8100 with an 8412 cab…
