I would guess Richard Barratt who still holds the gig. A fine and smokin guitar player imho.

Re: Virtual Jeff

I'd like to hear this in person. It seems to sound more natural than the Digitech Whammy, Eventide Pitch Shifter devices but Youtube's audio is not the finest representation. Be f'in great if it was built with the ability to store some open tunings too. Great way to turn your regular gat into a 12 o...

Re: Talk me down!

You may strip the poly and be disappointed with what's revealed. How many piece is it? Are they uniformly spaced, centralised and sized? It's a gamble. As Mr Suhr said, paint doesn't have tone. Indeed paint doesn't have tone, that's the problem no ? The number of pieces constituting the body could ...

Re: Hiwatt vs Marshall

Big difference in feel and perceived volume. I've been in a band with both 100 Marshall and a 50 watt Hiwatt to choose from and went for the Marshall in every live situation. Even though the Marshall was rated at double the wattage it was easy to coax into it's sweet spot whereas the Hiwatt would ju...

Re: Big glass, big iron & god?

I wonder what the actual power output of this monster is? It might be beyond the capabilities of most attenuators! When Audio34 (amp tech) had the amp in for tube replacement they measured output as: 81 watts RMS clip point & 132 watts RMS max So perhaps not as formidable as it may appear. Inte...

Re: JTM 45/100

That looks seriously great but I'd be inclined to overlook the authenticity factor and use a standard 100 watter top vent for the box. Big bottle 66's chuck out a fair amount of heat and obviously far more is generated than in an AC30 ( and they get hot enough )..

Re: Valuation resources

Reinhardt used to get a lot of love on the Gear Page - maybe ask on there (though that would only get you a feel for the US market)? Selling boutique stuff is tough. I imagine the liquidity for Reinhardts in the US is similar to the liquidity for vintage Marshalls here, or worse (Reverb only shows ...

Re: Marshall Amplification - their greatest year

IME there's no such thing as Marshall's greatest year. You can find a spectacular sounding beast of an amp from pretty much any year but it will require endless patience wading through a skip load of mediocre ones until you find it. Best I've ever had was a mid 70's 4 holer, same cosmetics as your 2...

Re: Best way to courier/ship a guitar with no case in NZ?

If its insured, it really should be treated like the Bledisloe Cup lol. The shipping terms state that items should be packed in the same materials the item shipped in originally ( or equivalent ) I believe. Otherwise it wont meet the insurance requirements. Trust me, they will determinedly avoid pa...

Re: Best way to courier/ship a guitar with no case in NZ?

Not suggesting you do this, but I wonder if you put a guitar in a clear plastic bag would it be treated with care since they could clearly see that it's fragile. Yeah, I've had a couple of items sent without significant package which surprisingly arrived in perfect shape. At the time i attributed i...

Re: Synth Chat

This is a good buy: Juno 106 https://www.trademe.co.nz/3681204887 If I could get the voice chips upgraded at a reasonable price, I'd be all over it. Unfortunately the best tech ( and one with the correct parts ) for old Roland kit is in the states. A mate sent his Juno over and it came back soundin...
