Equipment

New postby Bud » Sat Feb 28, 2009 12:58 pm

Since it seems I'm still nursing a severe case of GAS (Gear Acquisition Syndrom), I thought I'd start a thread on musical equipment. And, what better way to start if off than a cool video demonstrating the amp and cabinet I'd like to ultimately get.

As long as I'm doing Rush gear and demos, here's an impressive one: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qgRdvB-6pEo

:shock: I wish you hadn't said that. :shock:

It hadn't even occured to me, but now it's all I can see. :P

Maybe it's evil Jeff, the one who traded his soul for skill with a guitar.

I can't believe Jeff hasn't made a comment.

Here's my new guitar speaker cabinet:

It has 4, 12 inch 25W classic-rock-style speakers (Celestion G12M "Greenbacks" if that means anything to you) for 100Watts of power handling. It should arrive in a few days.

This should be a really sweet sounding cabinet. Now... to start saving for the H&K amplifier. :)

Check out my new toy:

Here's a Triamp MKII demo. This dude's playing a Stratocaster, so it'll sound a little different on my Les Paul. Also, I've got that killer classic-voiced 4x12 cabinet, so mine will generally sound warmer. Here's someonewith a little closer to my equipment (and taste in music), although he still greatly exceeds my skill.

It should arrive next week.

Probably, but it'd sound like crap. :P

The AMP?
The Keyboard/AMP combination?
The Keyboard alone?
Bill's Playing of this combination?
Bill's and your playing using the same AMP?
Could you be a little more specific?

Bud, You're a wee smug ass!

Now, is the Amp not able to take keyboards?

Yes, he is a wee smug ass. He keeps getting wee-er every year.

I think he said something along the lines of it would sound like crap. So I surmise the answer is Yes, you can plug a keyboard into it. But it wouldn't be worth the effort. That's my take from it anyway.
