Ask Tallkien Thread
Since Neo is tightening on "off-topic posts" i thought this thread would be a great idea. You can ask tallkien about anything gear related.
My first query:
How much would a 2x12 cab with some average speakers cost me?
Firstly, asking tallkien is not always the best way to go since his ideas are usually quite one-tracked and can misguide at times. Tallkien does not claim to be an authority on any subject and is not a goto for answers. This is a discussion forum and tallkien prefers to participate in that spirit. That said, The threads can indeed be tightened up with less innuendo and I think everybody should be responsible for that. If you actually use the search function it becomes quickly apparent how much singal to noise ratio there is on this forum
Which speakers are you talking about. The Sammis are twice the cost of the Samras but they are still way cheaper than Celestions. I'm getting two or three for myself but at the same time I want to try these local one's too. The Samras are cheap so that'll cost you 2x1400 and for a cab you'll need to check with these cab makers (should be under 5k totally). I'll probably get a few Samras made for combo options but all that depends on demand. I know nothing about cabinet acoustics. :(
Ok, because im going to invest in a cab before i invest on a head. Seems more logical to me. I can use the cab for my laney tfx1 till i get an all-tube head.
And you are our "go-to" guy. So get used to it! lol
I assume the Laney has provisions for an extension cabinet. If not you may be pushing the amp. but a speaker cab is indeed a good idea, and if they're good and easily available they'll make for a great amp upgrade
Note: Samra speakers have to be custom made to order. They are not available across the counter
Yep, my laney has a cab ext. Ill let u know when/if i can buy.
The Line Out is the cab extension right?
Minimum 8OHM Impedence
the"()" is the hole to plug the cable in.
I get that. I am sure you get my sarcastic tone on this post. ()
Tallkien can u make a 20-30watt JCM800 combo
JCM800 pre with a 20W power stage yes. What kind of music do you play?
Usually play hard rock/metal stuff, recently getting quite an affinity for blues...BB.King, SRV etc
BTW Dude, I read somewhere that u met with an accident, How are you now ?
hey there. hope u r doing fine.
i wnt to get a new electric guitar + amp + processor (if in budget). my total budget is 18-20k. i stay in noida.
the other day i wnt to delhi and checkd out the following
yamaha pacifica 112 (2 coil pickup, 2 humbucking) ~ 11-12k
fender squir strat (3 c) ~ 9.5k
Ibanez [cudnt remember the model] (1 c, 4 h) ~ 11.5k
Ibanez GRG 270 (1 c, 4 h, floyd rose) ~ 15k
fender also has a combo for 13k...squir strat+amp 10/15watts.
i didnt check anyother models of any company. went to on-stage, and most of the shops of dariyaganj.
have to get a decent amp too - around 3-4k.
one store told me to go for zoom 505. i dnt knw hw is it. though tht can be looked into later.
please suggest wht cn be a good option fr me ? processor can b skipped for now. i'll buy 'em as soon as i make up my mind.
no accident, just a little cosmetic type surgery. I'm fine, Thanks for asking...
A JCM 800 pre is a pretty high gain preamp and with a 20W 6V6 power stage it will create most of its distortion in the preamp itself, as opposed to an 18W where most distortion is handled by the Poweramp stage.
The 18 has more of that traditional Marshall growl when dimed while the 20 watter could sound a bit fizzy (at least in comparison). This amp hasn't been prototyped just yet so I can't comment on its sound, but there are similar 20 watters that are floating around.
I'm personally on a quest to find something that sounds like this right now
Said amp is 35 watt adaptation of what I'm trying to achieve with the 18. Same Tubes. That's the low volume power amp crunch that I'm aiming for
With a booster and some reverb my HO sounds a bit like that. Actally the BB King version is almost spot on. Love those EL84s
hello guys !! replies please !
im thinking of getting a combo of the jcm800 and a peavey 4X12 cabinet........................views?
its what i think tom morello uses
