Damon Johnson takes his job very seriously. Not that he doesn’t have a great time writing songs and performing them with Black Star Riders, he definitely does, but he’s also fiercely proud and protective of all that that means. It’s a band that rose from the remnants of the legendary Thin Lizzy, and in spite of many world tours, and now two great albums under the new name, there may still be those who cannot make the leap from the past to the present, but Johnson more than understands it, he even manages to be humbly appreciative of the feelings of those with whom he may not see eye to eye. Listen along on Soundcloud! The Killer Instinct is Black Star Riders’ sophomore release, recorded in conjunction with new producer Nick Raskulinecz, and this record sees the ante upped – their debut album set the bar high with it’s great selection of songs and performances, but after a lengthy stint on the road, and a second trip into the recording studio, Black Star Riders have emerged as a much stronger and cohesive unit. The trepidation of writing for a possible Thin Lizzy album is no longer a hinderance, and the songwriting team of Ricky Warwick and Damon Johnson are now committed to creating a new legacy with a bloodline, but its own name. This might be the first great album of , and in any case it’ll be a tough act to follow. I started off by congratulating Damon on a job well done on the band’s new album:

Biography[ edit ] Van Leeuwen has a Dutch surname he has ancestors from the Netherlands and has described himself as a third-generation American. His first big influence in learning how to play rock came through listening to Led Zeppelin records. Playing drums initially, Van Leeuwen sought to imitate Zeppelin drummer, John Bonham ,  but later switched to guitar and discovered that he had an aptitude for it. He cites Jimmy Page as a big influence: I would have to say that Jimmy Page was the first influence I had as a guitar player.
There were so many textures and different sounds that he got. The riffs that he made were undeniably great. Every one of them. Even the mistakes he made were great. So to me, that was a great first influence. Jester released an EP, which is the earliest and most rare recording of a year-old Van Leeuwen. He then played in a small band called Little Boots, with which he recorded a number of demos and played a few shows before the band’s breakup.

It all started around I used to play small clubs with both heads and cabs — we had to be ridiculously loud. Vintage Montgomery Ward Combo Anyway, I was taking a girl out on a first date into Boston and I was looking for something to do after dinner.
Peavey Electronics revolutionized the modeling amp industry with the world’s first Variable Instrument Performance amplifier, the VYPYR® VIP — the world’s first amp that contains electric guitar, bass guitar, and acoustic guitar amplifier models.
Neville used the guitar with the Fruit Eating Bears. One was taken for the compilation CD. The other was taken in at Jackson studios Rickmansworth whilst recording tracks for the said album. I used it all the time on gigs as a back up guitar, when strings went on the telecaster, the most notable occasion being the Chelmsford Rock punk festival when John Peel took photos of me playing it with blood dripping from my fingers.
I mean the action s not that bad. He says he still has the photo, but can t find it. Anyway the Rapier still looks the same today, 25 years on.

Feb 11, Kubler’s live tone is great. Memphis was my first sober THS set so I could actually analyze his gear a little. He was running a Fender Blues Jr. I’m pretty sure the BobAmp is an 18 watt Marshall clone.
A cab designed to compliment the rock-hard look of Marshall’s Carbon Fiber series. The 8-ohm, W MG Series MGCF Guitar Speaker Cabinet is loaded with 4 – 12″ custom-voiced Marshall/Celestion speakers that really crank out that authentic Marshall tone.
Dating back to , Acoustic Amplification has had a wild history even by music industry standards. They were huge in the ’70s, finding a following in guitarists as renowned as Robby Krieger of the Doors. After enjoying some time in the spotlight, Acoustic Amplification laid low for a while – but now they’re back with a selection of amps that’s as appealing as ever.
For day-to-day gigging at clubs and other small to midsize venues, there’s no substitute for a good combo amp. Gear up with a unit from Acoustic’s Lead Guitar Series and you’ll be ready to take the stage anytime. These run all the way from the compact, 10W G10 – a 1×8 speaker combo amp perfect for rehearsal and studio use – to the G DSP, a mean amp with plenty of power to back up your best riffs. You’ll also find a second breed of combo amp in Acoustic’s lineup: Like the electric combo amps, these come in an array of sizes.
The smallest is the AG15, which uses a 15W 1×8 driver configuration you’ll appreciate when you want something extra-portable. When power becomes a priority, turn it up to the AG S. This combo amp packs twin 60W power amps driving a pair of 8″ speakers to give you plenty of juice. Speaking of juice, maybe a combo amp isn’t what you’re looking for – maybe you’d rather build yourself a half stack? Together, these make an impressive team that’s ready to take on the larger venues in your calendar.
After their impressive start decades ago, it was only a matter of time until Acoustic Amplifiers would manage to recapture the world’s attention.

Speaker size and cabinet construction directly affect the sound of the amp. A Marshall 1 x 12 still have great low end but keep a tightness to the sound and are much more compact, good for portability. At the other end of the spectrum is the Marshall 4 x 12, a bigger cab incurs more bass end, creating a wall of sound on stage or in the ‘s the epitome of that classic Marshall sound.
It is not documented when he bought the amps but most likely sometime during July as the band was vacant for most of the month. Dave Reeves, who had been working for Sound City between , had started his own company called Hiwatt and by January he began making custom w heads for local musicians and bands like Jethro Tull and The Who are seen using Hiwatts in May later that year. David later got these placed in a custom rack in early Controls for normal volume, brilliance volume, bass, middle, treble, presence and master.
During the Dark Side of the Moon tour David would have four Hiwatt heads on a custom rig to his right on the stage. David had over ten Hiwatt heads on the Dark Side of the Moon tours in and he always performed soundcheck on them all himself to make sure they sounded right. A roadie tells a story from one of the shows that David complained about one of the heads but no one could hear a difference.
Annoyed, the roadie carried the head backstage and brought it back. He played too loud for the arena! A common trick to make the rather dark British amps sound a bit brighter without loosing the lower frequencies. This was also the case in for the Momentary Lapse of Reason album and tour, but he soon replaced the Fenders in favour of his old Hiwatts prior to the second leg of the tour in By now, Pete Cornish had modified the amps adding extra input points allowing David to just use the power amp stage with the Alembic F-2B acting as the main preamp for the whole rig.
All heads had the preamp section either removed or disconnected as in with the Alembic serving as the main preamp for the rig. One powered the Heil Talk Talk box, while the two remaining powered the Doppola rotating speakers.
And thus, he founded,,,Fleetwood Mac. Back then, when Jimmy Page was barely out of his session musician days and first achieving fame with the soon-to-be-over Yardbirds, Peter Green was the ace, ripping heavy blues player in London, adored by his fans, who saw in Feetwood Mac a band that was more edgy and faithful to the blues than bigger names such as The Rolling Stones. The song was later covered by Santana and became a worldwide smash.
But worse was to come.
No head! I have a Marshall MGA Half Stack. What head is the best to use on this type of cabinet? – Marshall MGHDFX Watt Amplifier question.
This amp still has its original grey RS Caps which pre date the Mustards. The four inputs are closer together than the later models and these early amps also had a polarity switch like the Early Bassmans that inspired Jim. All chassis anchor’s are internal. Its interesting that the indicator light on these early models are very small the oval ring RS will not fit the amps also have regular gold string that’s stapled into the top and bottom route line where as speaker cabs from this period often have mini gold T piece not stringing.
Above is 38 Jan note the polarity switch was replaced with a fuse holder. This amp still has its original gray RS Caps which pre date the Mustards. All chassis anchor’s were now external “four holes through each bent lip of the Ally”.
The internet killed the electric guitar The guitar has taken a step back and become the supporting role again, being layered with effects to make it not even sound like a guitar anymore. So how could that possibly kill it?
I had to sell my baby, a Parker Nitefly S/A tobacco burst as well as most of my pedals and my amp, a carvin xb head and Marshall 4×12 cab. We got through the rough patch and decided financially it was better to move back east to live closer to my family where cost of living was cheaper.
A little furry and a lottle tired. It’s just a number, but something about yesterday felt special, being Day On the way to the studio, I don’t know why he did this, but Owen decided to turn the dial to this Christian radio station here in town called WayFM. Owen and Nate were laughing, but I was just sitting in the back seat getting more and more pissed off because every single song we heard, the guitar track was a diluted version of every U2 guitar track dating back to I can’t imagine The Edge would be happy if he heard his sound bastardized like that.
If any “christian rockers” are reading this, the type who routinely drenches their signal in multi-tap delays, please, for the Love of God, grow a set and start playing guitars that sound like guitars again.
