since the valve jr is a 5w amp you should go with the 30w speaker.. if you put the 80w in there your amp will be working harder to push a heavier speaker, possibly distorting more.. i've never played through a valve jr, but generally these little 5w amps are designed to be cranked open and tend to b...

don't know if it would fix impedence mismatches..
i've always heard that it's possible to turn a DI box around and use it backwards to reamp.. though i've never tried it myself (i have a reamp box)

i love my rhythm ace. also the classic that you hear a lot in sly stone's stuff, and elsewhere is the maestro rhythm king.. you can get extra variations from these by playing two patterns at once or changing the rhythm 1/2 way through each pattern.

if you are fond of your dano, why not just keep it and wait until you can afford to pick up a gemini. they are still a bargain if you ask me. i have a late 60's gemini 11. it is great, has incredible percussive vibrato and nice reverb. no doubt more rugged than the dano.. but im sure the dano gives ...

I'VE USED A CROWN DC-300A SERIES 2 WITH NS-10'S AND A SUB FOR ABOUT 4 YEARS NOW. NO COMPLAINTS REALLY. NOT WHAT YOU WOULD CALL HI-FI BUT SOLID AND FAIRLY ACCURATE. CAN GET FATIGUING AFTER A FEW HOURS. IT'S A CLASSIC AMP, I WILL UPGRADE ONE DAY (PROBABLY TO BRYSTON) BUT I WILL ALWAYS KEEP MY DC3. BEE...

Can be had used for $250-$350. Has standard mount for cartridge and super strong direct drive motor. I currently own 6...
