DREAM COME TRUE by FROZEN GHOST

I have seen this request several times, and have scowered the net for a long while now. The only place I found that had a link to it was on this site, but that was over a year ago and that site has gone down. If someone could please either email or post where the tab can be found, it would be VERY VERY much appreciated.

Thanks in advance,

Peavey or Marshall......please help!

I'm on the verge of doing something increadibly stupid or the best thing I've ever done. What to do if I can get a Peavey Bandit 112 (second edition) new for 390 euro; 100 watts, 2 channels, solid state or a Marshall JCM 2000 DSL 401 for £150; 40 watts, 3 channels, valve state.....the only problem is that I live in Belgium and I would have to make arrangements to ship the Marshall from England while I'm at the beach 1200km away from home. Whereas I could deal with the Peavey later on without any worries. Complicated, innit?

Re: Peavey or Marshall......please help!

If I were you I would do anything I could to get my hands on that Marshall. I own a Marshall Valvestate 2000 Avt 100 and another guy in my band owns a peavey 112. Whilst the peavey does a good job, the Marshall kicks it's arse tone wise and he wishes he owned one. If the 40watts is a concern, don't worry you can always mic it.

Well, it seems that only a marshall sounds like a marshall, but as a amp tech, I can tell you from too much experience that all of the marshall amps, except perhaps the plexi, are made like crap, bad designs, bad components, and difficult to work on. Good thing they come with a five year warranty, they need 'em, but I wont do any more marshall (korg) warranties, the company is always trying to screw the techs. Nope, those repairs will cost!

Re: Peavey or Marshall......please help!

I have to agree,as an amp tech Marshall valvestates have become my bread and butter.The only amps I've seen break down more are Crate amps.Love to see the crappy workmanship they are building into these amps lately.All the overseas labor really helps people like me.I won't work on any new Fender crap anymore.I still use Peavey because it's still built tough,unlike the trucks using the same slogan.I would never consider doing marshall for a warranty center.How fast things change,bottom line....forget all the new bells and whistles...go for what you know(and rarely is it built in korea or mexico)

General reply to who's the best.

Hi everybody, nice site; didn't have a chance to surf it yet but this topic sort of caught my eye.

Some "heavy" names have been mentioned and ALL very worthy of such a title; however, one name seems to be absent from those that I've seen so far. Mike Bloomfield, who was the "first" guitar hero and preceeded many "old timer" names by as much as 4 years with outstanding guitar work that caught the eyes of "all" those other names mentioned. Just some food for thought.

However, if I was to choose "MY" favorite I would pick Jeff Beck; for his sheer brillance, speed, and knowledge of the instrument/effects I believe he is unsurpassed in his field.

Re: General reply to who's the best.

Hmm.It's hard to say who's THE BEST.There were so many bad mofos,that makes it hard to narrow it down to ONE person.It's like asking,which is more dangerous,the grizzly bear or polar bear? They're BOTH very dangerous.

Boss MT-2

Hi. I currently own an electric guitar that has 2 single coil and a humbucker. My amp has a overdrive effect. Do you think that it is worth to buy the MT-2 pedal effect or switch to dual humbucker guitar? I would like to have Metallica sound. Please advise. Thanks

Re: Boss MT-2

no don't get the metal zone they suck.
my friend has one and after playing it for about half an hour the novelty wore off and i realised that they were a waste off money.
if you want the metallica sound buy the same gear they have

help needed in composing better songs

its been 2 months since i started playing the guitar [self taught] n ive composed a lot of songs by combining various chords together, but i don't seem to get diversity in my songs...i think i require more knowledge of chord combinations...help needed!

Re: help needed in composing better songs

Get a music degree, that is what i did.

Re: help needed in composing better songs

Just get a chord reference book or download one and spend some time every day learing new ones and differnt voicings, thats an easy way to start and after playing adound like that for a while you will naturally figure out how chords are formed and to come up with alternate voicings on your own. Good luck and have fun.

Looking for Bassman 10 repair help

Equipment: 1979 Bassman 10; 2 channels (Bass/Guitar).

I am getting an extreme annoying loud crackling sound from the Bass channel and have found out that the 100K resistor/resistors are bad. After the amp warms up (about an hour) the sound “sometimes” goes away, it always dissipates to lower levels however.

My question is this:

I have noticed that the interior seems to be “waxed” or coated with some sort of substance, when I heat the solder to remove the old/bad resistors what effect will this waxy substance have on the resolder project. It seems to me that the wax (if that’s what it is) will interfere with making a good solder. If this is a problem, what is an effective way to remove and clean up this waxy material.

Thanks for any help,

Re: Looking for Bassman 10 repair help

Found the answer. The wax will not interfer with soldering.

Should I rebuild my silvertone amp

Hi

Can you help me please? I own a Silvertone Model 1472. It's in very good condition. All original parts. I bought it around 1980. I've used it very little since I have own it. I have started to use it more and more as a practice amp connected to my Boss GT5 and 1982 Gibson Les Paul custom. I recently bought new tubes and I'm thinking about installing a new speaker, new capacitors and maybe resistors because everything is so old. When I hit hi's on my guitar the speaker starts to vibrate.
My question is what kind of speaker should I replace the old one with and should I replace the electronics. Is it a 4 ohm speaker? I have no intention of throwing the old parts away. I feel like if I do this I will change the sound along with the old parts and it won't be original anymore.Any advice is appreciated.

Thanks
Erne

Re: Should I rebuild my silvertone amp

Replace the speaker first and then see what you got, I wouldn't mess with the electronics unless your having serious noise problems, you'll be surprised how long those resistors will last.

Most technicians are using Jensen's for replacement speakers, but Celection's are also good; I like the old Fender speakers when and if they can be found.

Re: Should I rebuild my silvertone amp

I also have one of the Silvertone 1472 guitar amps that had a intermittent problem. I took the chassis out and found a solder joint on the wiper of the tremolo speed pot had never been soldered !!.
On an older amp like this it is good to check/replace the filter caps. *If there is a lot of 120Hz hum when it is turned "ON", the power supply filters are going out. Yo can also look to see if they are bulging, or leaking some ooze (bad sign / change them). Use the same voltage or higher rated versions at a similar or a bit higher capacitance value.
The 12inch speaker in that model amp is rated for 3.2 Ohms. A 4 Ohm model is more common.
Here is a listing for a schematic for that model:
