P.s Looking to buy a new head next month (starting to collect high gain amp heads) which do u think i should purchase first???? Thanks!!!!
-Soldano Hot Rod 50 plus
Nice rig! Looks like you definitely like to collect gear like myself. I'm also thinking about a high gain head next. Currently I have a Budda Superdrive 30. I was considering a 5150 (because they are pretty cheap used), 6505, engl, etc.... also. Are you leaning towards one or another right now?
I have never tried the Budda head, though ive heard good things about it. How do u like it? You know, im very stuck on which to purchase first. I eventually want to pick all 3 throughout the year but dont know what particular order.
Each head has its own unique positive qualities. I used the Hot Rod+ in the studio and it was amazing. Its one of the smoothest sounds i've ever heard with a great punchiness to it. The 6505/5150 has an unmistakable bite; think Bullet For My Valentine's album guitar tone. AMAZING!
Lastly the powerball is just a CRAZY amp. Its probably the most versatile of the 3. you can really get alot out of it, a nice bassy jazz tone to a searing tight monster low end crunch. I may endorse ENGL so the Powerball might come first.
As you can see its a hard decision! What do you guys think!!?
I may have to give the Budda a test drive! Yes, the Engl people are great and i am looking forwards to hopefully working with them in the near future.
I am actually in a popular New Jersey band called Amora Bliss (currently on a break while members are working on side projects), working on a side project with Nuclear Blast Records Swashbuckle drummer (discovered by Bumblefoot, funny story), and produce around the area (next project is a solo artist with a John Mayer type vibe, minus the killer blues aspect ha) im very involved in the Jersey scene. I have played Warped tour dates, and singed to producer/engineer Kato Katsawanna's (paramore, red jumpsuit apperatus) label Burning Records out of NYC with my old band, now defunct, Clover Hill. I would love to be able to discuss some gear. im a big fan of the site!
The JVM is a real fun amp to play. You can pretty much get any Marshall tone ever from that head. The cleans are the best I've heard, better than my blues jr and channel 4 can get pretty high gain. Def worth checking out.
I've also added to my rig.
- Bogner Uberschall Twin Jet w kt88's
- Bogner Uberkab w vintage 30's and 75w celestions
- Peavey 6505+

Thanks man! I'm actually in the process of starting a new project which is always fun and exciting. Yes, the Uberschall is my main dirty sound and I also run the JVM for cleans and light gain tones. I use one of those tonebone pedals to run both together. Both heads go through the Bogner Uberkab which I had modded to stereo. Bogner cabs come mono so I had a Marshall jcm 1960 backplate installed in order to run it in stereo. As far as guitars go I'm using the fender jim root teles and strats exclusively. They are the best guitars I've come across. As always I'll take any opportunity to talk about gear!
