I think the big three-knobbed one is a Dunwich Fuzz Throne and the one above may be a splitter.

Looks like a hex phase wizard.

I’m sorry, what were you saying? I could not hear you over how loud this looks.

"What are your though s on the peavey 5150 I I ?"

Asked by barrilex

Not my bag but if it were it’s probably what I’d use

"What are your thoughts on EHX tubes, are they reliable?"

Asked by andrewxsethlord

Yeah not bad, I have a few of their 12AX7s in my V4

"Ive used a V4 and SVT cl at separate times through my 215b. Don't turn it up to 10."

Asked by Anonymous

I would still advocate replacing the stock drivers. That way you don’t have to feel uneasy about it every time you power the darn thing up

"So I have a Peavey Vulcan that puts out 250w at 2 ohms, but I'm looking into getting a sunn 2x15 that's rated for 160 rms at 4 ohms. Will this fry the speakers in the sunn or fuck up the amp head at all? Thinking about rewiring the sunn to 2 ohms eventually. Should I replace the speakers as well?"

Asked by Anonymous

Won’t fuck up the amp head.

Speakers should be fine, but if this is going to be a long-term setup for you, it would be wise to replace the speakers with something that can handle a little more. That is, if you do a lot of loud shit often.

"Can anyone comment on the Peavey Max Bass amp? It is a cs800 power amp with a bass preamp, according to what I've been able to dig up online."

Asked by Anonymous

Hm. I’d say so.

"hi, there's a 70's silverface bassman 100 for sale in my area for a decent price, are these amps good for guitar?"

Asked by Anonymous

Hm. I’d say so.

"Is it worth it shelling out an extra 300 for an ampeg 8x10 over an acoustic 8x10?"

Asked by Anonymous

Hm. I’d say so.

"what is the word on carvin amps? they seem to be neglected thus far and might be had for cheap?"

Asked by Anonymous

I’m a fan of the X100B.

"The AXL Akita 40 is a good amp, and a trip though. It's a dark and high gain AC/AD30 type amp. Made by the company that makes Johnson guitars. It could use better speakers and a baffle that doesn't cover half the speakers though."

Asked by andchildrenandchildren

"what are your thoughts on the AXL Akita series amps?"

Asked by soldxsoul

never heard of it!

"Do you know if there's any way to roughly calculate the power output of a solid state head going into a speaker load higher than the amp's minimum load impedance? I.E. a Sunn Concert Lead was rated 200 watts @ 2 ohms back in the day, but those amps can barely handle a 2 ohm load safely now-a-days, if ever. So you run the amp on 4 ohms or 8 or 16 ohms and lose a bit of power. How much power? 25 watts? 50 watts? 75 watts?"

Asked by andchildrenandchildren

I don’t know, and I’ve always wondered. At first I thought it would be halved/quartered/etc. as the impedance was doubled/quadrupled/etc., but that doesn’t seem right.

"I'm sort of surprised I don't see more people using Avatar 4x12's. Is there any reason why?"

Asked by Anonymous

I don’t know. I see a lot of the 2x12s around. But maybe their 4x12s are just priced a little high when there are lots of good used non-custom cabs out there.
