    I’m loving that Marshall. That’s just beautiful!

    Absolutely beautiful, and paired with the perfect guitar.

    Another pair of great parings, and I couldn’t agree more.
    Only if you let me play them. :)

    Y'all got some nice toys!!!!!!!!!!!


    My QSC's are 8's. That's a Alto12 up top. I use the QSC's for stereo and have the 12 blended to both channels for a little bottom end and overall boost. It's turned down really low. Just there for a little fullness. I tried a sub. It did make a difference, but only slight in my mind. I couldn't justify the expense for the difference. That sucker was heavy too!.

    Yes I spend hours finding great sounds with my Apollo Twin.
    I have a Vox AC10, but with only one channel, it's not great on growl..so I bought a Vox stomp box, and a Ibenez Tube Screamer to play around with as I practice..still learning. Tube Screamer will arrive Friday..can't wait.

    I do the same with the Zen Tour. These new interfaces and emulations simulations whatever they are sound very good.

    Sounds fun! Nice to hear there's another Apollo Twin user and that it works. My guitar should be shipping on 1 April and I've got the Twin all fixed up ready!

    There's a JCM900 plugin in Reaper that works magic on the clean signal out of my Quilters' line out. Another one called 'Rednef Twin' that I use a lot.

    I use Logic prox but apparently, there is a way to use the sound files from a profiler in some of the daw's. I haven't tried. A friend was all hot to try it with his recording rig but he needed a plugin he wasn't willing to pay for, he uses protools. Some of the Logic amps are nice as well but it is just easier for me to use the fpga amps and cabs with my interface so it is doing all the work instead of my computer.

    Wow!
    But why does this 56 look more voluptuous than any other 6120..? Or is it just me... Like it has club or falcon dimentions, rather than 6120's.

    But what a great set!

    Nothing wrong, it's a normal size 16" body, it's how this picture is made to make it more impressive, haha...

    Absolutely nothing wrong! each and everyone of us here are admirers of the voluptuous. Otherwise were on the wrong board.

    It could be the angle indeed. But whatever angle, orange hollowbodies are always delicious.

    I’m sure you’re right, but for some reason it looks Country Club sized.
    Very funny, antipode dude. :)
