NGD for Cryoman

Yesterday, 08:54 PM

Posted by Cryoman in Heritage Guitars
CNSB (Chestnut Sunburst) is what they call it. Looks better than the photos show, really a fiery color with more flame than evident. I'm very pleased with it so far and newly inspired to play, play, play.

Has Seth Lovers and is very resonant (acoustically). Likely the most resonant electric I've ever owned. I think I like the Tone-Pros gear over the older Schaller. I may install a Faber post set, however.

So pleased to have a 2nd Heritage in my small collection (having sold my 150 ("Winey") and my 157 a few years back.)

Now where are my bone nut blanks..? This Micarta/Corian is just too white for me.



PS. The cat's pretty happy with the new guitar too.

Heritage Prospect, Beautiful guitar, Great price, Cherry...

Not exactly ebay but their competition. This is my Heritage Prospect and I think it's priced really well. A brand new Prospect is more than twice this. Funny thing is, I can't tell if it is floating block construction or solid block like the Blues Deluxe. One side of the block is touching the back of the guitar and one side is not. So… a half-floating block? (Guitar was sold to me as solid block, btw.)

Amps in the Stable

26 Nov 2014

Posted by DetroitBlues in Amplification and Effects

I've had a whirlwind of year with guitars and amps.  I've never swapped, sold, modified, or otherwise parted and obtained so much gear in such a short amout of time.


I think I'm done for a while, hopefully, a long while.


The Marshal DSL40C is a great amp.  I find I only use the clean/crunch channel really nails that vintage Marshall goodness.  I don't care for the OD1/OD2 channels as they sound really compressed.   The amps volume is perfect for bedroom and gigs.  I like the effects loops and the ability to cut the wattage from 40 to 20.  The digital Reverb is really lacking unless you use the clean channel.  Mostly it sounds like a hint of delay than a reverb.  But that's ok.  I have the Mr. Black Deluxe Plus running through the effects loop.  An interesting thing about this amp verses the older Haze 40 and other lower wattage Super leads is the power section is two EL-34's, not four EL-84's.  I find this is an excellent amp, matches well with any guitar I have, particularily with the Les Paul.


The Peavey Valve King II Micro Head.  This is a great verstile amp for anything I want to play.  Its clean and overdrive channels are fantastic.  The digital reverb is much better than my Marshall.   The effects loop is great and I like the ability to line out to headphones or to an XLR interface.  Not to mention I can switch between 1, 5, and 20 watts.


Finally, the Peavey Bandit 112 Redstripe USA model.  This is the best analog solid-state amp I've ever heard.  Both the clean channel and the overdrive channel sound great.  Maybe its my lack of hearing great tones or maybe its truth, but the overdrive on the Peavey really does sound just like my Marshall.  No one would of guessed that huh?  Best amp investment I've ever made.  Great for clean blues and for some classic rock.  Reverb sounds great (since its a full sized USA made two-spring Accutronics tank), but only when it wants to work.  Can't figure out why it does that.  Doesn't matter though, it works great otherwise.


I've got some great stuff going on.  Can't see a need for anything else...


Hope you all have a great Thanksgiving... I'm very thankful for what I have.
