^ I definitely need some good ear plugs too ! I saw APTBS last week, they were so loud ! I usually don't use earplugs but this time I had no choice, 2 different pairs a the venue and I was pretty pissed, one was kinda hurting me ears and sounded bad and the more expensive one cutted out litterally all the guitar frequencies, especially the mids ! I was shocked, I literally only heard the drum and bass..

Good earplugs are super worth it! I never go to a show or band practice without them.

After a decade of feeling my eardrums disintegrating earplugs are pretty much a necessity for me now. :idk:
I hate the general foam kind though, they cut out too many frequencies and that foam is pretty much a haven for bacteria which isn't good for me because I'm really prone to getting ear infections. These are the kind I ended up getting. They're super comfy and the high end loss, to me anyway, seems very minimal. I've only used them for one practice so far and the clarity was so much better than anything else I've used. Initially I thought my amp was having volume issues so I popped one of them out for a sec and regrettably realized my amp was working just fine. :lol:

They're washable too which is a huge plus for me.

Yeah it's worth investing in good quality washable plugs. Construction site foam ones ruin music.

Vaccaro X-Ray. Made with the Kramer aluminum necks.
I love mine, but would kill for a EGC or Travis Bean.

The SVP is basically the front end of an SVT-3 PRO. Either that, or it came first and the SVT-3 uses its design.

I use the 4 preamp and SVP simultaneously. 4 for clean, SVP for nasty.

New Amp Day.

Got the Dr. Z Z-Best the other day at a fire-sale price of $300. A collector of vintage amps had it, needed the space, and I was at the right place at the right time.

Got the Mesa Boogie F50 just yesterday in trade, he got my 5 watt Bad Cat Cougar 5.

This is the best deal on the baddest amp rig I've ever seen.

The previous owner of the Mesa just found out that he's gonna be a dad. So he still needs killer tones, only quieter. My kids are adults now, so I'm rehearsing a Doomy Ambient Post-Rock Instrumental project and therefore need a fire-breathing dragon of an amp with lucious huge and deep clean tones....

I admit to having done no research on this amp prior to the trade. The only thing I knew is that it was dual 6L6 and 50 Watts. The more I'm reading about it, the more excited I get, it's apparently heralded as the best clean tones Mesa ever produced. And clean tones are what I need if I'm going to be looping this much. I can't wait to get some spare time to dive into it.

Had a Mesa F-100. It was pretty fucking awesome. The downside is that it has a Parallel FX loop. If you use the loop you may not be super into that.

Might be able to find an Ampeg GVT-52H.

I love my GVT-15H. They pop up sometimes, but they weren't made long.
