we all know about rock solid amps around here.

derek sells great stuff. i have a splawn promod 100 and an engl powerball(just purchased from rock solidamps btw)

derek is a great guy to do business with. he hooked me up with UNBEATABLE deals on my recent shopping spree. and he stands by his shit. he's not shady and he's not out to rip anyone off. you don't see any "economic" begginer crap there. it's only top notch gear that he feels is worthy of being called "rock solid".

the clips section is very helpful.

i had a choice.
$1,300 shipped with the old stock engl tubes.
$1,390 shipped with the tung sol 5881's and jj ecc83s.

now this wasnt new as in "NIB" it was new like floor demo or something. mint condish, with better tubes, all biased up right.

total with the z-11, z-12, isp decimator pro rack G, and powerball... like $2,100 and some change, shipped.

plus i got a free rsa t shirt and some skull key chains.

the difference in sound is very little. different treble taper. basically the knob at 7 on the v2 is what v1 sounds like at 5.

the gain fine tuning isnt audible, it's just to help against feedback, and they improved the noise gate.

so if you think those clips are amazing. don't think you can't get them from the v1 powerball.

ok ive heard of them on here but not much. they get mixed reviews.
how are the celestion g12t-75 speakers. i hear they have a scooped sound and that is not what i want. i want that HONKIN mid punch. i need 4x12's and i see them (g12t-75) go for 200 on ebay all the time. cant seem to find any other 4x12s at once. i can only spend 200 on speakers. i try to find 2 sets of 2x12s and pair em or even 4 diff speakers (that'll work together) but its too expensive that way.

i love the g12t-75's. lots of lows and crisp highs. not much in the midrange area. sounds great with midrangey heads. in my main cab i have two g12t-75's and two rola g12-65's(replaced the v30's). and i love the sound.

Wasn't saying that the V1's couldn't get brutal tone . I'd love to hear a clip of you playing your Powerball.

the guy who reviewed the behringer head at harmony central :

"I have owned Marshall JCM's and Mesa Boogies and none of them impressed me quite like my V-Ampire head."

Maybe behringer is pulling a Krank and sending out their employees to bump up the reviews.

Which reminds me the other day I was in MCC(local music store) and some guy asked about the Krank and the sales person told him that it was the best sounding amp in the place when there was like a wall of marshalls not 25 feet away.

Ah yes and thanks for the signature quote there.

as far as this one is about brutal tone and i dont wanna start a new thread i will just post my question here.

if been constantly working on my tone the last 3 weeks. overall my tone seems perferct to me except for the low e and maybe the a string. my lead sounds on all other strings are screaming but sill clear in their definition. the problem is that my low strings dont have enough treble and bite. they seem a bit muddy. i alrdy got lots of treble and mids and a hell lot of distortion and this works fine for all the other strings but my low end keeps being muddy. if i turn up the treble on my eq in order to raise the treble on my low strings all my other strings have too much highs. im still not sure what to do. maybe someone of you guys got an idea.

sry for the mistakes im drunk ..

you could try an eq pedal. set up your amp for the low chuggy strings, then step on the eq pedal for your lead sound.
