  1. This is really nice. However, when he went into the kind of overdriven tone I didn't much care for it. It lacked the fluidity that he has on his other tone. The whole thing sounded kind of like Miles Bitches brew era along with Metheny, Weather Report and the acoustic sound of Oregon.....heck, everything I like about that style! I can see why Towner would want to play stuff with him.
  2. Definely…….Towner is one of my heroes. He made it musically Ok for me to use dissonant chords years ago. Oregon always reminded me of a kind of acoustic Weather Report.
  3. Amazing sense of Harmony! I think it's time for me to quit playing guitar.
  4. Why am I thinking of Deliverance?
  5. That's how they get guitarists to turn down as we all know.
  6. I replaced all of the Schaller's on my Heritages, but those were all solid bodies like the 150, 140, Stat, etc. My 535 came with Seth's already and sounded fine. I think if my 576 had Schaller's I would have left them on as they sound great on a hollow body guitar. In this video they had a wonderful sheen that the Seth's did not. I still really dislike the Schaller's on a solid body as they seem to lack the grit or something that I need when playing R&B or R&R. However, they are flat out wonderful on a "jazz" guitar and I am thinking of going back to them on my 576 after hearing the video sounds. Since I took them out of all of the solids, I probably have some laying around! Lastly, that guy Rich is a really great player! damn! What a nice touch, and his voicings were wonderful! I am now a fan and have subscribed to his channel.
  7. I think about how it will look in my room with my other amps.
  8. I was actually joking about this. One of my all time favorite jazz guys is Ed Bickert, who played with Paul Desmond and made an age worn Tele sound like God.
  9. Who knows? I may have to send my amps to Cleveland if my new guys doesn't work out. I live in a very expensive tragically hip mountain town and there is nobody that can repair tube amps. I just sent an amp 160 miles away to Billings as there is an old guy that apparently does tube amps. The only guy in my town is an old marine electronics guy who lives and breathes tubes and can do great work as long as the amp was designed before 1970. He admits he is lost on anything fairly modern with things like MIDI switching or FX loops.
  10. OMG! YOu got me all paranoid! I am going to look at all of my axes with stingers and see if anyone tried to cover a break!
  11. If I am reading you right, I agree. Changing speakers instead of ams makes the most difference for me right now. If an amp just doesn't sound right I am finding that there is a good possibility that swapping out speakers may be the answer. Like I said, I feel like I have a new amp! I think that a JBL clone in a fender amp is the bomb.....
  12. So I swapped out a Celestion Creamback today. After reading this thread I put a ceramic Weber California in the amp. I was so used to the Celestion, I forgot that a different speaker turns it into a completely different amp. I did that more often in my younger years but have not recently. Damn…..now I may be hooked on speakers. I give up cocaine and my alcohol consumption goes up. I give up alcohol and my guitar purchases go up. I stop that and now it is about speakers. Where will it end? My life is unmanageable.
  13. I love Webers. I have a couple of the California 12s that are their JBL D120 clones. One of them is acting up after years and years of usage. I just found out that Weber does re-cones of their speakers for only $30! What a deal!
  14. I don't know about this....clean they both sound wonderful but cranked I hear a world of difference. BTW. when I see NAD for the thread topic I can't help but think of Beavis and Butthead.....
  15. I wonder if Synergy Amps were in there? All of those boutique amp builders are involved in building the Synergy module tube preamps. They were just starting to take off especially after Vai had his signature model. Friedman, Egnater, Soldano, Bogner and Morgan all build those suckers for Synergy. What a set back!
  16. I love it when you post dirty pictures,
  17. Prospects are way cool. I have a Prospect 12 string and it is amazing. Someday I will find a matching six string.
  18. I may have posted this before but can’t remember....A bass player I work with a lot is the engineer for a public radio show called Live From the Divide. They bring in people from Steve Earle, Tommy Emmanuel, David Wilcox, etc....some pretty heavy hitters. A lot of these folks have a rider wanting a Deluxe. Doc picked up a tonemaster deluxe for the show and didn’t tell the players until after the shows. All were completely fooled having no idea they were playing through a modeled amp. Instead of using the processing power to do multiple things, all of the power is dedicated to one thing....the sound of a fender deluxe. The only drawback I have heard about is that you don’t get a choice of speakers as this one is designed specifically for the tonemaster and putting a celestial or Weber or whatever in it just doesn’t sound better.
