In the first part of this series, I presented some budget tube combos. In the second part, I started a small overview of several heads. And finally, I would like to end up this series with some last recommendations. Continue reading “Lunchbox Tube Amps Part III”
In the first part of this series, I presented some budget tube combos. Here, I would like to give a small overview of several heads. They are even more handy and you can connect every speaker you like. Mini heads are pretty functional and flexible. Besides, they are (mostly) cost-effective and fit in almost every gig bag. Continue reading “Lunchbox Tube Amps Part II”
Small tube amps are pretty popular at the moment. And mostly, they are not much quieter than their big brothers. But of course, they offer a little less clean headroom. They can be carried easily and they are so much more than just a little toy. Perfect for a jam-session at home or for recording. In the Studio, even Led Zeppelin did not use a Marshall full stack but a small Supro amp. Mostly, the prices of these little amps are comparable with the effort for a good effect pedal.
The 80s are back on the agenda. Whether fashion or music. And although the music business (as well as the fashion designers) committed some really bad crimes during the 1980s, the LoFi sounds of the 80s game consoles have been permanently engraved in our minds and ears. Far away from the perfect sound, always accompanied by some dirt and a slight tendency to kitsch. Pure nostalgia. Therefore, in this article, I would like to present some pedals that are able to create such an Arcade sound. Continue reading “16-bit Arcade sounds – revival of the 80s”
If you are looking for the perfect headphones on the internet, you will frequently find recommendations like: more is always better. But this does definitively not work for every kind of use. Continue reading “The impedance of headphones”
The Yamaha NS-10 Studio Monitor is still the most famous speaker in record studios all over the world. Although many, while using the NS-10 for the first time, are pretty disappointed. It does not provide the perfect sound that makes every mix sound brilliant. Quite the contrary: the first hearing impression mostly reveals a thin sound with less bass and too many mids. But it also offers some advantages. Continue reading “Yamaha NS-10 Studio Monitor”
The Dunlop Echoplex EP 103 is a pedalboard-friendly digital delay. By connecting the external tap footswitch, the 750 ms of maximum delay time can be extended up to 4 seconds. Continue reading “Dunlop Echoplex EP 103”
One loves the Tubescreamer, the other hates it. It is impossible to keep everyone happy. While to one guitarist the overdrive pedal sounds perfect, stresses the mids in an optimal way and creates the ultimate range of distortion, the same pedal seems hollow with the bass cut quite too much to another guitar player. Continue reading “Effect pedals interacting with the whole setup”
This is a comparison of two different 12″ speakers which have been (one by one) built into the same Fender Silverface Deluxe Reverb amp. The first one is a Jensen C12 N Ceramic (current model). The second one is a Vintage Oxford speaker. Because I am the DelayDude, I do (self-evident) use a delay for this comparison.
„Synthesizer“ – this word and everything associated with it give shivers of horror to many guitarists and bass players. Instantly, the horrible sounds of the 80s come to one’s mind and the keyboarders actually have never been the popular members of a band. Continue reading “Synthesizer – more than 80s sounds”
