  • Beautiful! That thing looks squeaky clean. Musical is a good way to describe a lot of that old, silver gear. It just makes everything sound good and feel right to me. Makes me want to keep listening and I guess that's the whole point.  Congrats!
  • Gotta bump this one.  Was at Guitar Center killing time and thought: What the hell, why not check out headphones? I took my time, listened to every pair on display. Pioneer, Yamaha, Sony, Sennheiser, Shure, AKG, Beyer Dynamic and Audio-Technica we…
  • All of this indeed! There have been times when physical injury has made me hang up the guitar for a while during the healing process. As I began to get back into it, I found myself experimenting with open and alternate tunings more, using effects i…
  • Yes. The SX-780 is badass. Much more powerful sounding than it's 45 WPC would suggest. High quality parts inside. Excellent amp layout. The Phono pre is excellent too.

  • Whoa. I hadn't heard that. Good looking out. IIRC, the Sansui 771, and its various wattage counterparts in the same line, were marketed as the first generation of receivers that used PCBs. They were supposedly more inherently reliable than other am…

  • It looks like it has Taylor's Expression System just going by the location of the controls. Early 2000's would be my guess but I don't know exactly. Taylor experts? 
  • I don't really drink beer, so....  Also, I fold every type of food that I can. Having trouble with soup, though. Good luck with the trade!

  • I think I have a stack of Pitts holding up a corner of my piano. If I give you a damaged one, can I just move in with you?

  • Yeah, Pure Mode only for music on the Yamaha. We play music through the Yamaha when we have parties or are doing things around the house since it's on the main floor of the house. It doesn't sound bad at all and concert DVDs and Blu-Ray discs sound …
  • mrussel1 said: For the same cost is the key, good call.  That Marantz you have, restored, is probably about $600 if purchased today, right?  For that price, you are in the mid-level category of  NAD, Yamaha or Marantz integrated amps.  I be…
  • My home theater is modern. (Yamaha Aventage). Two-channel system is vintage, except for the CD player. Solid state power amps, vintage or modern, should all sound pretty similar if all is functioning correctly and you are comparing amps in the sam…
  • If I can help, shoot me a PM. I'll walk you through whatever I can. Good luck!
  • dudeman said: Well, I dropped my Marantz 2245 off for someone else to work on. It is time for recapping, alignment and restoring factory bias, offset and idle settings. I just don't have the time to do it myself. Pretty nervous about it but the…
  • Hey OP. Did you ever get to the bottom of this?
  • Nice guitar! I like your idea about the brass saddles and pickups too. If it were mine, I would probably install SD Quarter Pounders, but I like a hot Tele tone. They wouldn't be great if most of your playing is clean or "edge of breakup" but they …
  • Loujoe said: dudeman said: Got a Mumford and a Williams. $35.00 each. Today was a good day! Nice when you get hooked up.  Yeah man! One of my clients talked her boyfriend into selling them to me for face. Very grate…
  • cmalisze said: I know someone with a klausen Looking to sell?
  • dudeman said: bootlegger10 said: You might clarify which Alpine Valley '11 you want. There are several.  I don't have anything to sell but just an FYI. Good call. Any of them except Hampton.  Thank you!
  • I'm still on board. Probably going to watch to the end.  The show isn't what it used to be for sure, though. Since TWD and FTWD are the only shows I watch, it has become like a guilty pleasure. I still buy PJ albums too but LD isn't to the same s…
  • Looking for Cleveland '10, too.
  • Listened to LABB's last night. Sounded pretty damn good to me. I get what you mean about live Toadies releases, though. "Live from Paradise" is pretty ragged. "Rock Show" is a little better, but still not great. "Billy Bob's" is the best live recor…
  • Basement music room/studio/cave for me. I only have posters from some of the shows I've attended so I don't have a massive collection like some of you. Starting to run out of wall space though!

  • If Jacksonville is still available, I'll take it.
