    Anyone sell all their tube amps?

    Nope - you're not alone - bought a SLO 30 - and just for the fun of it, an Orange Super Crush 100, which actually way exceeded my expectations. I love my Axe fx - but still love amps and pedals too.

    Matrix GT1000FX Amp failure and Customer Support

    Beato Book Interactive

    I have the Beato book - as others have said - its more of a reference. I don't think teaching is one of his strong points. He's kind of the teacher thats like, " here - just do this - (insert crazy lick or chord progression here) " And I'm like - wtf is he doing ? He doesn't really explain what...

    FRFR for loud Hi Gain tone

    Matrix 1600 power amp - run two 1x12's with EV 12L's. Not really FRFR - but could be based on the EV's very neutral character. The EV's are VERY loud and while not that light - would be lighter than a 2x12 - and they can take, and love high volumes. I have a Xitone as well and its great - but...

    What's the longest time you've spent learning a song and getting it right?

    Exactly - I like to take one or two difficult measures, put the metronome on slow and work on it that way. Your learning the song and improving a technique.

    Very interesting tone wood experiment

    First video I have seen of this guy - very interesting experiments on whether tone wood matters. If you haven't seen it, its a good watch.

    Best automatic Espresso machine?

    I've tried 2 different kinds of fully automatic ones in the past 15 years - the Saeco and Nespresso. Neither one lasted more than 2 years - I went back to a Breville thats not fully automatic and it has lasted almost 10 years and still going strong. Not sure if fully auto ones have improved...
