Trying to dial things in with a bunch of new gear in a ne...

Yesterday, 06:29 PM

Posted by jimsoloway in Heritage Guitars

We moved to Vancouver Island last week which means yet another new room.  It's harder to get my hands on gear here so I stocked up on a bunch of new toys before we left the lower mainland.  I've been testing things out all day and I've really struggled to contain the low end.  This is the first thing I've cut that feels even close.


The setup is my custom H575 into a TC Electronics Arena reverb pedal into a Gallien Krueger MB200 head powering an Earcandy ported 1x8 Mr Watts cab loaded with an Eminence Beta 8A speaker.  I recorded it with a Sennheiser e609.

NAD: '89 Boogie .50 Caliber+

21 Nov 2015

Posted by Conneazoo in Amplification and Effects
Yeah, the 80s called me and I decided to answer. Its been awhile since I've spoke with them and, honestly, I've missed them a little bit.

1988/1989 (board date '88 and chassis date '89) Mesa/Boogie .50 Caliber Plus. Red python tolex, brand new handles, corners, casters, and paperwork from M/B denoting recent service and clean bill of health.

Head is loaded with 2 brand new JJ 6L6s and all new JJ 12AX7s with V1 being a gold pin.

Cab is loaded with Eminence Red Coat 12s. It can be configured as full closed, half and half, or full open back. It's wired 8 ohm mono.

Sorry about the crappy iPad pictures, but I was in a hurry to share!!




So far the tone is absolutely monstrous, especially with the EQ in the mix. However, I'm used to a four channel Roadster, so getting used to only 2 channels may prove to be something to overcome.

The cabinet is a different story. It WILL become part of my live rig. Compared to the angled Marshall JCM900 Lead-1960 I've been using, the only word that really comes to mind is "focused". This is the tightest sounding cab that I've ever played through. It's a smaller 4x12 compared to the Marshall, but it sounds a lot bigger! It's heavier than the Marshall as well, despite it's size.

New H-137

24 Nov 2015

Posted by rwinking in Heritage Guitars

Apparently I was the high bidder on a "Floor Model" H-137. I was looking for one and there were a couple around here for $1100- !700. I got this TV Yellow one for $900 from a shop in Dallas that had 100% customer ratings. I am pretty darned excited about it. i am surprised that there were no other real bidders on this, which makes me wonder.....However it came from a shop in Dallas and when I was an Austin guitarist, I had never seen a heritage, so I would wonder how popular they are. I notice a lot of you guys are out of Michigan, Wisconsin, illinois, etc. which is close to the plant.

Six months ago I bought my first two and now I am up to four.
