Awesome demo Pickmaster!...and excellent playing
Great sound on headphones...and the Hammond sounded awesome at the end too! heh
Pretty good for a camcorder mic
Makes me hang out all the more for the Tele I'm waiting on,
a Mark Jenny gold relic
I was gonna put a Warmoth strat neck on it, but relented and
bought a matching relic'd tele neck
I did have a strat years ago with a tele neck which was cool

More clips please Pickmaster!

I was specifically referencing the very lo-fi sounds of the Mothers of Invention era (see We Are Only in it for the Money and Weasels Ripped My Flesh).  Which is quintessential late-'60's garage band sound; quite literally textbook, there is usually a picture of the Mothers on the same page as a description of the scene. Let's keep in mind that The Doors and the Grateful Dead were both considered part of the same "garage band sound."

I suppose I've never quite understood the classicifation of 'garage band sound', especially when applied to those particular bands. The first Zappa album (produced by Tom Wilson) & 1st Doors album (produced by Paul Rothschild) were both sonic masterpieces of their time '66-'67. I can see commonalites with the guitar sound on a lot of sixties stuff, because it was usually pointy sounding, thin & too much reverb. If that's the criteria for 'garage' then you'd have to lump Paul Kantler in there, and most of the psychedelic and rockabilly acts of the fifties and sixties.

Anyway, this is off-topic...heh

Octopussy, I noticed you have a 18 watt Ceriatone....I don't think any expensive boutique amp is gonna
trounce on that amp in particular. They might be different, but not necessarily better
I would just keep it...and buy a couple of different circuit based Ceriatones
You could have your 18 watter, a Prinzetone and a Bluesbreaker and still have change in your pocket
rather than have one overpriced 'single-sound' amp
(that's what I plan to do myself anyway...just supplement my BF Super Reverb and Ceriatone Tweed Twin with other, different amps...hopefully a Bluesmaster, 36 watt, and a Prinzetone for the bedroom!)

Yeah, I agree some of the earlier Mother's sounds were a bit garage sounding and it does have it's charm
Frank did have some great hi-fi guitar sounds later...even as early as Roxy he was getting a great sound
Sorry I assumed you were judging Frank on the 60's hype perception...a lot of people do that
I only saw him in '76 with Terry Bozzio...it was fairly loud & feedback laden...heh

Yeah, I tried to find a pic of Frank's rack, but could only find Dweezil's replica
I'm not worried about Dweezil...I'm better at Frank than him and he knows it LOL

Here's a pic of Zappa's 'garage band' guitar rig as replicated by Dweezil

 Zappa was much more than 'the guy who sat on the toilet with the weird hair'
Zappa only made fun of garage bands in 'Joe's Garage', he did 70 + albums besides that one
He did a lot to advance guitar technology...helped Duncan develop the Stack pickups....introduced
Clapton to the wah pedal...was the first to record mutron mag & piezo on the acoustic etc.

That's great hywelg, well done!
It's a nice font... I feel it may be a bit small for guitarists to read from the audience,
but the glowing oval would be quite recognisable once people knew what it was
I think that design, in a large 'Marshall style' plastic logo would look good on the heads,
I just think that for Nik's amps to get really famous the logo has to be big
The inset oval is great, but a lot of Nik's models would have nowhere to put it
You could have an anodised oval plate with the red on the grille, but you wouldn't
 want the oval too big, it would clash with the geometry
Looks great on the Marshall style though

Yeah, Greg I have seen JC77's...I forgot about them
Still can't recall ever seeing a JC90...
I might get one later...still haven't got the Bluesmaster
I did just pick up one of Nik's Tweed Twins off eBay....should have that in a week
I'm pretty excited....my first Ceriatone!
Next on the list is a Bluesbreaker ('cos I have a cab for that)
Then I'll have to get a Bluesmaster of course!
22  Community / Gear / Re: Some of my Guitars and Amps on: February 25, 2012, 02:26:32 AM
I've always been too fat to play Les Pauls
I did have a nice 'burst Classic once and a custom Gilet 'burst
but my stomach got in the way
I love the look of the minihumbucker on the black
I'm thinking about a Warmoth L5-S with minihumbuckers
I just think mini's look cool and sound great...i'd get Antiquities

Even though I'm fat, I'm still jealous though....awesome collection!
23  Community / Gear / Re: Got my Roland Jazz Chorus 90 Today on: February 25, 2012, 01:25:38 AM
Hey Gregg ...nice amp
I don't remember the JC90 though...maybe they didn't sell many in Oz
I've seen JC 160, 120, 80 & 55's...and the 160 & 120 heads
I think the 80 was the model that didn't sound good ├žos it was mono with a 15"
There's been a few JC55's for sale here...maybe I should get one
24  Community / Gear / Re: My little music room.... on: February 25, 2012, 01:19:47 AM
Cool setup...love the vintage keys..
I had a rare Hohner Pianette Duo once...Clavinette & Pianette in one
That Hammond looks nice too...and lighter than a B3!
Nice ...but yeah...I'd get a big rug for that floor!
25  British Style / 18 Watt / found a cab for a 36 watter...woohoo! on: October 15, 2011, 07:50:17 AM
At first I was getting excited about fitting a Bluesbreaker in this cab...
but soon discovered it was the 'Reissue' size cab that won't take the KT66's
Still...I've seen some raves here about the 36 watter...don't think I'll be disappointed
The chassis height in the cab is 7.67" ...I think it might be about 0.4" deeper than the
Marshall reissue....I'll have to check with Nik on the height to see if I can actually fit a BB

26  Community / Gear / Re: Got my PRS SE Santana.... on: September 25, 2011, 05:58:47 AM
Hey Gregg....nice PRS! (I love that colour)
I'm super impressed with the SE's as well
My friend just bought an SE1 (Korina)...it's awesome!
I'm tempted to get a Korina myself, I love the resonance
The SE Orianthe looks interesting with the Korina & maple top
(but I think it only comes in Red Sparkle)

The SE1 is the best out-of-the-box deal I've seen
(and my friend saved $400 buying it online from the US)
I did have a 10 top charcoal PRS years ago...I think the SE necks are better...not as clubby
27  Ceriatone / Overtone / Re: HELP!!! Bluesmaster coming soon... need opinions! on: September 22, 2011, 10:57:54 PM
Hey Gregg, thanks for the info on the Delta Pro..worth a look!
I was looking for 10" Delta Pro's for the Super Reverb cab...if they sound like EV's
it would be a good way to get the SRV tone without the weight
It seems the Delta's are half the weight of the EV's
Unfortunately I think they only do the 'Pro' in the 12" the 10" is more a bass speaker

I would try the 12" Delta's in my Laney box, although Eminence ain't that cheap in Australia,
so it's probably a marginal saving over secondhand EVM's

I'm still surprised how good the HH Invader speakers sound with the Super Reverb,
so playloudd, if you see a cheap Laney slant 2x12 cab, give it a try


28  Website, Store / Ceriatone.com / Re: Ceriatone OTS stolen, Brisbane, Australia need help on: September 19, 2011, 03:42:11 AM
I was watching that amp....the guy's story was suss as
I'd also let eBay know about that listing

29  Community / Gear / My BF Super Reverb rig on: September 17, 2011, 08:10:16 AM

Here's my current rig.. I hadn't plugged the Super in for 10 years, but it sounds great (after a half hour of crackly settlin'in) I had a couple of old Groove tubes I whacked in (may be slightly better than the other valves that were in it)
 I just picked up the Laney box from ebay & it's surprisingly good with the stock HH Invaders.
So it's a great sound with just the Blue Boy Deluxe plugged in, but adding the Tube Rotosphere & Mutron muddies it a bit...still fun tho'.
When I get an OTS I'll use it with the Laney with a couple of EV 12"s (I've got a Mojo Super Reverb cab waiting for the Fender)

Hey thanks fatfretter...I've got a similar prob..been out of work since Xmas
I had guitars & amp head but no box...I only just snaffled up the Laney box...had to
bring it back to the mountains on the train LOL
I'm just ebayin' some of my unwanted stuff to get the cash for an OTS
Yeah, I'm sure any version OTS would make me smile too

But I need a car....decisions...decisions...OTS or car?
