    New valves

    Just ordered a valve kit for my ENGL head, I read online that EL84 ran amps do not need to be biased because of their design and modern valving etc etc. So in theory I should be able to just pop the new valves in and blow the house down rite?

    Going from ENGL to Friedman??

    Absolutely man! It was like that when I got the ENGL, I tried everything and nothing had the balls I wanted on tap if I wanted to use it. The ENGL does everything well so will be going into it with the same mindset

    Going from ENGL to Friedman??

    I understand what ya saying man, I'd spend 1800 on a head no problem, get what you pay for as you say it will be quality for the money. Just looking for an all rounder, don't use the clean chanel too much but like the lead chanel to be light drive like acdc, to harder drive like Sabbath and...

    Going from ENGL to Friedman??

    Hey guys Im in a bit of a brain fart mood and wonder if you could help. I have an ENGL Ironball which i love but Ive only had it 3-4 years and its broken down twice in the last 6 months. It sounds like the volume is going up & down by itself and loosing gain when doing it, I took it to an amp...

    D'Addario Cleaning Kit

    I don't mind a good scratch or ding, you should see the back of my custom lol, but my Black Beauty was covered in gunk and sweat as lovely as that sounds and my gibson polish wasnt cutting through it so I ordered the new kit but because of lockdown it took weeks to come.

    I know this is probably the most borning thing to review/read but i was so impressed i had to share! I did a trial restore & polish on my old Strat which had a couple of patches in the paint that looked matte, the restoring liquid has given the Strat new life and the matte areas are shining...

    NGD - Deja Vu all Over Again

    Thats awesome man, you got a great deal then! Sometimes guitar shops are not as knowledgable as we think they are (i know that sounds arsey) but years ago i took a rare Strat Plus Deluxe with a temolo on it that fender and floyd rose collaberated on, had lace sensor pickups and locking tuners...

    Id like to try one of those Maybach LP style guitars. I love both my customs but sometimes i think about having them re-fretted with jumbo fret wire as the fretless wonder tiny frets they used to use really are teeny tiny and dont allow for much grab!

    Beautiful top on that LP man!! I find that you have to put more work in with a Les Paul, maybe its just me lol But i find they may not be the easiest guitar to play but the reward in sound & tone in priceless :-)
