Jazz III Picks

Jazz III Picks Comparison – Which One’s the Best Pick?

A long time ago I started using Dunlop Jazz III guitar picks. It’s been so long that I don’t remember how or when it happened, but in my opinion there is no better pick than the Jazz III. They last so long that I hadn’t bought a new pack in years, and when I went […]

Quick Review: Harley Benton G212 Vintage Cabinet with Celestion V30s

A couple months ago I bought a cheap Harley Benton 2×12 cabinet to pair with a Peavey 6505 MH mini amp that I recently got. The cab turned out to sound pretty good for the price so I wanted to post a quick, half-assed review of it. Why half-assed, you ask? Well, I don’t feel […]

Peavey 6505 MH + JJ 12AX7 Preamp Tubes = Better Tone

Earlier in the month I posted a preliminary review of the Peavey 6505 MH mini amp head, and for the most part I like it, especially at lower volume, but I didn’t like the tone of the distortion with the amp turned up above bedroom volume. It would get a harsh, brittle edge to it, […]

Peavey 6505 MH Mini Amp Review – Part 1

After posting an article with a list of mini amps last month, I ended up buying a Peavey 6505 MH, a 20 watt mini version of its high-watt counterpart. I’ve been using it for a couple of weeks now so I thought I’d write down a first impressions review. There are some things I really […]

AmpliTube vs Thermionik Dual Rectifier Comparison

AmpliTube vs Thermionik Dual Rectifier Amp Sim Shootout (Video)

Today I put together a video comparing the 3 channel Mesa Boogie dual rectifier amp sims from Amplitube and Kazrog to try and determined which one I like better. I’ve tried a bunch of different amp sims over the past couple years and I really dig the tone of Mesa rectifiers for the style of […]
