tired of fixin/waitin for my tube amps to warm up. I want to get a jazz chorus, quilter, powerstage 170 or one of the darkglass amps and be done with it. hearing great things about all of them but I'm not sure which way to go yet. any favorites around here? wouldn't mind going in the hole for a microtubes 500 but that might be too much for now (will probably be a good pair to a v4 when getting raunchy tho eh?). not gigging at the moment but that will change later down the year
i'm glad i can call you a friend. even if i'll never see you again

I always love a Jazz Chorus but haven't tried any of the rest. I'm super tempted by a quilter for myself (and will probably buy one this year) for convenience practicing and gigging.

Seen a bit of love for the Quilters around here lately. JC's are a classic choice of course.

heard super good things about the quilter from a few guys locally.

I still have an AC15 floating about but I play almost exclusively solid state lately. Mostly a First Act V-stack combo set to the vox setting.

You could look into some of the tech21 stuff as well- light weight and pretty rugged.

So, the new Count to 5 i bought has been shipped from Canada on the 5th of February and it is still stucked somewhere in the custom offices in Italy. I sold my previous one (older and without quantize switch) to finance this, so now I am Ct5 orphan and I have a gig tomorrow. Last night I spent like 2 hours to find out how to cover the parts I usually use it to (and I use it a lot) without any decent result.

Plus, the Rubberneck I am waiting for apparently has been sent to the wrong address.

If you have any shops arond you that carry Zoom products, go look for a Zoom MS-70cdr. The Ice Delay mode should get you there for 100-130 dollars, and you can just return it after your gig.

Don't think I will have time to grab it but thanks for the advice. I could grab one and keep it for the emergencies in the future.

I got a Quilter 101 and I'm really satisfied with it. Got an old JC-120 in the studio and that sounds good as well. But the Quilter is my go-to amp atm.

How does it hold up playing with a drummer? I'm seriously considering one, sort of pending how my current setup sounds when we have our first band practice since me and the singer swapped over bass and guitar.

Nice. I'm curious about the slap chorus (maybe a regular chorus with a predelay?) and the "Special FX" program bank.

I'm curious on a few things, and I wanted a standard bread and butter stereo reverb for things (as much as I love the Midiverb II, it does one thing, and that's not it).

Nabbed a small box Worm for 64 bucks on reverb with power supply. It's just what I needed for a specific tone (Iommi's phase tone on the solo/ending of Megalomania), as well as the modulated wah being absolutely perfect with my fuzzes. The vibrato is nice and Magnatone-y (I can use my Memory Boy as a standalone modulation unit for batshit vibrato). The trem is pretty tame, which is all I need in a trem, so it's a great fit for my current setup. All I need now to have every phaser sound I ever wanted is a Bad Stone RI.
