Thanks again everyone for your thoughts. I decided on a Fender Super Sonic Combo. Pretty faithful aproximations to the Bassman and Vibrolux tones to my ears (I A/Bed them with the real things in the store), and a scortching dirty channel! Now, time to ration my supply of Ramen noodles to last me a f...

Thanks for all the input, guys! I think I may have to delve further into the world of quality pedals via that awesome pedal thread that's floating around on the board. All of mine sound like shit, no matter what amp I run them through. I got them at yard sales in Tempe from starving media arts stude...

According to the guitargeeks site, Alan Sparhawk of Low uses a 60s Fender "Vibroverb". Never seen one of those. So anyhow, my friend is out of town for awhile and allowed me to sort through and test amps from his modest collection. Today I brought home a Fender Deville to try. I really love the clea...

Best All-Around Guitar Amp ~$1000

Hey guys. I'm in the market for a new guitar amp, something that's versatile in the sounds it produces. I probably don't need anything over 40 watts, something that could be driven effectively for recording and sound good projected out into a small club setting. I play a fender strat with two stock ...

Way to use your ears! ... I love him, but I will agree that the vast majority of his solo material is lacking. My favorite tracks with his new band were on one of those EPs he released (I think one of them was called "Dog"), but I found out later these were early Ben Folds Five demos, so that explai...

It might have been "Cannonball" by Damien Rice. I remember it being in the movie somewhere.

I had no clue about that rerelease! I'm a big Of Montreal buff, and I just put it on and listened to "Baby", so I guess I have the original version. I've always enjoyed the personality the basslines have had in their songs, it's like they're talking.

Mic Stands.

So, I am more than a little fed up with my cheap lightweight tripod stands, and need to up my collection anyways so I don't have to resort to using a tree branch and chewing gum. So I was wondering what kind of sturdy stands y'all use, and where you get them from? Also, any ideas of how to make the ...

Thanks for all the replies! You've all given me a lot to think about. And the Fender Pro Junior WAS the one I was trying to think of. I think I may try and hunt down a good deal on one of those.
