Well I should also mention hydrogen. There's a lot of it in the atmosphere. And people have skin. And this apparently is the no point to anything thread. And robots are nice to have. Sometimes I poot.

Dunno what to think of this amp.

https://www.guitarcenter.com/Marshall/Studio-Classic-20W-Tube-Guitar-Amp-Head.gc



Marshall has a very interesting new little 20 watt JCM800 ($1,299.99) which costs more than any of the DSL's or any of the JCM800's, JCM900's, or JCM2000's did when they were current from what I remember. Fuckin' inflation and greed for ya. ::)

JCM 800's sound great if you want a no bullshit 1 channel Marshall amp for playing hard rock and classic rock. But I dunno how confident I am in this thing to sound right. Or to last. It's the size of their little 15 watt DSL portable heads, but it's actually made in England rather than in Vietnam like all the DSL series.

My head scratching starts here: It's got 2 EL34's in the power section. Not EL84's like I expected, and that's good because EL84's tend to overdrive sooner and sound a little mushier with less clarity in the midrange than EL34's. But usually you see 1 EL34 for every 20 to 25 watts of power, and all the old 50 watt JCM800's have 2 EL34's. So... how does a "20 watt" amp possess 2 EL34's in it's power section and run them hot enough to achieve the right sound? If tubes run too cold, they probably don't compress the signal like they're supposed to, and they certainly don't overdrive.

If they'd just price their fucking JCM800 reissues at something god damned REASONABLE, they wouldn't HAVE to make these cheaper lunchbox heads to rake in business, they'd just sell more of the fucking full sized JCM800's. $2,599.99 they have JCM800 100w reissues priced at right now. Fucking INSANE.

Been listening to these guys a good bit lately. You probably remember The Black Crowes. Brothers Chris and Rich Robinson parted ways and vocalist Chris started his own band. Chris actually plays guitar now, and is pretty good at it too. More on the lighter side than Black Crowes were, and very 70's sounding. I love bands that can sound as good live as they do on their albums.

LOVE the lead guitarists guitar too. There's another video online by Premier Guitar where he talks about how it was somewhat modeled after Jerry Garcia's old "Wolf" guitar. I guess that peculiar sound he and Jerry Garcia got might've had a lot to do with the brass plate that the pickups are mounted in.

Focalor's prediction was lame enough to imagine, but now it's the team who got to the Superbowl on a no call vs the team who picked heads in OT as well.

 :raincloud:

I know. It's fucking awesome, isn't it. :D

If you didn't stop watching NFL because of the "taking a knee" bullshit, you can stop watching it because it's so fucking predictable.

What a bunch of douchebags. I'd rather stub my barefooted toe on a brick stair step and rip half my toenail off than hang out with any of those lame fuckers for any length of time. What a bunch of lame fucking whiney buzzkills. Ugh. Get the fuck away!

Yeah, Iron Curtain dude hit the nail on the head. These fucking morons don't realize that FORCED diversity (rather than genuine diversity), white shaming, etc, just helps push more white folks away and some instead move closer towards attitudes of racism BECAUSE of this social movement bullshit.

God, I sure did like the late 90's. Racism came to the forefront in the Rodney King thing, people went fucking nuts and burned down half of LA and Atlanta, and then we finally got some god damned justice when they re-tried those pieces of shit and found them guilty. But on the whole, by the late 90's, open and obvious racism was totally uncool and unacceptable. It looked for a while like maybe we were heading towards a place where color honestly didn't matter and was never even talked about anymore,... and I kinda THOUGHT that was the goal of civil rights, for everyone to be equal and color to be a non-issue.  But I guess... color MUST matter for some people. And it's really fuckin' peculiar to me that these people who insist on talking about how people are not color blind... are the only ones bringing up the subject of color to begin with.

And I guess this is where white people get pushed back into racist sentiments and attitudes. Because it's my opinion that this movement is largely driven by those who wish to see the institution of racist policies against whites as a "fuck you" for all the shit they've read in history books about whites concerning slavery and native americans. But... I guess that's just my racism talking. ::)
