Peter
You will be surprised what you can play. This time last year my response would have been similar to yours but not now. I would encourage you to record and listen back to what you can do.

Just as an example here is a short excerpt from a current work in progress which I started yesterday. This is my SC400 lead on one track, strat backing on two tracks, the Trio playing rhythm section of bass and drums. All played through my 6L6 amp with lead via my valve overdrive pedal.

Intro and middle section today I hope, resulting in a 4 minute piece.

Sorry Peter. Our responses must have crossed while I was fiddling making a small enough file. So instead of pics you got sounds.

I probably have pics so will attach something.

The valve spring reverb is great for what it does, i.e. surfy type reverb. It also does a nice subtle low level reverb for adding width to your tone. It also has the disadvantage of spring noise as they all can be susceptible to, to one degree or another.

Tried to attach pic(s) but need to re-size them.

VOX AmPlug miniamp

Unread post by Buzzard » Sun Feb 14, 2016 3:22 pm

VOX AmPlug and miniamp ............ a halfstack that you can fit into ANY room. :wink:
Image

It's small compared to a guitar ...........
Image

It's tiny compared to a fullsize double stack .......
Image

So what's the BIG deal :?:
Mainly the AmPlugs, the mini cabinet itself is cute, but sound quality really makes you apreciate your Yamaha THR-10
The cabinet can run on a 9volt battery or an ordinary 9volt powersupply for pedals.
AmPlugs run on two AAA bateries only, powersupply cannot be connected, unless you make mods.
At the moment I only have two AmPlugs: Twin and Acoustic.
Image
The AmPlugs are amp emulators with a built in STEREO headphone amp.

The "Twin" emulates a Fender blackface amp with a bit of chorus and reverb giving a roomy stereo sound when using headphones,
and it can actually play loud enough to overload your ears, be careful. Still, a fairly good headphone practice amp. :)
This one sounds ok. (Y)

The "Acoustic" should emulate an acoustic guitar when used with an electric, and this barely has anything even close to an acoustic simulator.
I f you want that, there are so many good acoustic emulators out there, anyone is better than the VOX AmPlug.

I still look forward to test the VOX AC-30 AmPlug hoping that this one will sound a bit like the real deal with headphones.
That will pretty much be the "keep or sell" mark for me using AmPlugs in the future.

The new "series 2" AmPlugs have a plug that rotates to fit better in all types of guitars, and more FX/effects than the "series 1" shown

Here's the most versatile of the AmPlugs: viewtopic.php?f=24&t=8444&p#p46448

More AmPlugs:

If you consider collecting the lot, the grand total probably exceeds the price of a GREAT amp.

EHX MEL9 Tape Replay Machine

Electro Harmonics have been very creative since the B9 organ machine hit the shops. :D

Here's a gadget giving guitarists another shot at emulating keyboards, this time the early samplers such as the Mellotron.

I have not use my other amps much since buying the THR-10 amp, nor the Zoom G5 effects processor. I recently purchased this mint condition DG Stomp complete in box.(power supply not shown but was included) I plan on using this with my other amps to give me that same great sound at higher volumes. I have heard a lot of good about this unit and will post my results as soon as I can give it a good workout.

Nice one Jeff , even with original box. (Y)

Once you get familiar with the DG-Stomp , and if it takes to your liking ........
I recommend to get a Yamaha FC-7 expression pedal for volume control, they are fairly cheap second hand.

Peter,
So far I really like the Stomp, I haven't accessed half of it's functionality yet but really like it so far. I've spent but about 2 hours with it now, running it through a Fender Frontman amp. and have made up my mind it was a good investment. Thank-You for the suggestion, I can see where that would be nice to have.

Jeff

Sadly I seem to have lost my DG Stomp last week. I took it to band practice and plugged it in to a different wall socket than usual. It worked properly for a few minutes but I turned it off and unplugged my guitar to reroute some cables. When I plugged it back in and turned it on the display showed 3 vertical lines for a few minutes but no sound. I fiddle around with the cables and power button a bit and then no display at all.

I took it to an electrical repair shop and the guy said there is power everywhere except nothing coming out of the CPU. There is one other shop in the area I may take it there for a 2nd opinion but sadly I think it may be done. :(

I have a workshop manual for the DG stomp, if you need it, I'll mail it to you

Fixing vintage pedals with processors may be hard work, and if nothing helps, get another .... the can still be bought fairly cheap.
