Well it´s been some time I could really participate at this forum as some of you might remember that I had to stop playing guitar because of a "guitar arm" (the same as a tennis arm but on the left arm dry.gif ).
It´s getting better now and the pain is slowly fading.....very carefully I can start practising/playing again.
To reward me for 3 (THREE!!!) weeks of No-Guitar I picked up some pedals I think EVERYONE should own...a Compressor and a serious Fuzz! laugh.gif

Here are the pics:

I just bought the EHX pedals today....man I love the Fuzz! biggrin.gif

Just thought I share this with you - keep on rocking (and ALWAYS warm up before serious playing!!!!)

It´s actually my first real amp but I think the clean channel is really nice and crisp. My teacher who is a professional jazz player also has one (besides others) and commented positivly about the clean channel. Really worth a try (and THAT does not cost money wink.gif )

It´s the 50W Combo Version with the 2 Celestion Speakers in the Cab.
I´m attaching another pic because I really recommend getting one of those black boxes on top of the cab as well! wink.gif
The Master Volume Settings you see on my pic is the one I use and are only possible IF you use a good attenuator.

If I had to make the decision again I would immediately buy it again BUT I would buy the Head/Cab version - it needs more or less the same space but you are more flexible.

Thanks all for your kind feedback - BTW I´m not loving the fuzz only but also the tube driven compressor. Has anyone else experience with the Black Finger?!

Cheers all

Hi Ivan - thanks for your feedback!

About the Silencer:
Here´s my long answer to your short question: tongue.gif - jump down to "conclusion" for a straight answer smile.gif

I was considering buying an attenuator because I could not turn up the master volume more than to "1". It was just too loud for ME (and I´m sure my neighbours as well). But what use is a powerful tube amp if you can not use it´s potential (even at home)?
So I started out looking for technical help and attenuators seemed to be the solution I was looking for.
I had a thread about this at the GMC Forum as well ( https://www.guitarmasterclass.net/guitar_fo...howtopic=36098)
The "man! it sucks tone big time" did throw me off for some time.... wink.gif

But then the idea got stronger that with a attenuator with a LOAD box option would be a perfect solution for getting the Full Tube Amp sound into my recording gear bypassing the amp cab completely - so if I choose I could just practice with my headphones and my amp full on (not just the pre amp section of the Marshall).

3 main options:
1) THD Hot Plate
2) SPL Cabulator
3) TAD Silencer


I was about to order the most expensive one (Cabulator) but luck had it that at this moment a new review was launched at YouTube
([url=https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8FOinA9HrO4) - it was shockingly bad. huh.gif
I got in contact with the designer of the Cabulator and he told me that no one has ever managed to let this gear sound sooo bad, but my faith was a bit shaken. A few days later I saw the new review about the Silencer ( https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1DY-GdXsIJA...eature=related) and that one was quite good.


Conclusion:
Well I bought it and I´m VERY happy with it because it just delivers what it should. Bypassing the Amps cabinet I get TWO signals in my audio interface - a direct line out and a TAD F.A.N.T.A (Cab sim) signal - so now I can either choose the signal or have "real" stereo when routing it into a amp simulator (which is mainly GR 4 Control room without any effects of course).

I also have to say that any dial between -2db and -10db does not make a real difference to me (maybe I´m deaf already) but that might be due to the fact that I have the master volume up to 5 and thus any setting like -4 or -10db is still unbearable loud smile.gif

I heard it´s quite good in/on a live setting as well and you can channel your guitar signal via Silencer to the mixer or just get fine tube amp sound without over powering your band mates.

I would buy this again without hesitation - the sound you get out of the line out/f.a.n.t.a is brilliant and the "tone sucking" when playing life is tweak able by a good EQ.

I´d say Go for it Ivan - here´s the link to the specs page from TAD http://www.tubeampdoctor.com/product_info....products_id=385!

Cheers & Sorry for the round about story - seems to me I was just in "writing mood" laugh.gif

One is more affordable than the other wink.gif
I just can tell you that the PRS is really, REALLY worth it´s money!
I think I will try & probably buy a PRS Dc3 as well - sounds/looks like a Mega Strat! smile.gif

So, how much did you pay for the PRS? I've been thinking about getting the SE 25th Anniversary Custom 24.

It was about 3.300 € (or currently 4.300 US$) for a 10Top model - worth every penny. I think the SE Models are cheaper without loosing any crafting/tone quality. Worth trying it out!
Keep us posted! wink.gif

Wow, it's expensive. But it's a great guitar indeed. I heard PRS Tremonti Sig, and played just a bit PRS SC, and they rock hard smile.gif
