Amp Rx Part 1 - The Peavey Windsor Studio

Hey tone brothers and sisters! I promised a guy a while back that I would do a little research and see what WGS model most improves a Peavey Windsor Studio amp.  Well wait no longer!  Vaughn’s Rx for a small, sterile and lifeless Peavey Windsor Studio: 1. Switch the EL34 to a 6L6 and 2. Install a WGS ET65.  The result: more useable headroom and bottom end, and a much more three-dimensional sounding amp.  Here is the video, next week, we tackle another tone-challenged tube amp, the Gibson GA20-RVT (reissue).  Oh, and one update, since I did the video, I...

Andy Rooney

If you have liked even one single thing that I have written in the past year and a half of this blog, I almost certainly stole it from Andy Rooney.  Andy has been my writing mentor for decades now; not officially of course; Mr. Rooney doesn’t do that type of thing.  His take on the whole idea would be something to the effect of "I’d never mentor any one so ignorant as to want me as a mentor".  Rooney has taught by example.  I, like generations of Americans, grew up mesmerized by his ability to distill big concepts down to a few flawlessly chosen words ... small...

Pic Wars - The Phantom Menace (quest for the ultimate plectrum)

Hey guitar folks, ready to delve in to some serious pic discussion?  This is a blog that I’ve been simmering on the back burner for many weeks now; ever since the summer NAMM show.  At the NAMM show I did something quite out of character for me, I actually dropped ten bucks and purchased a meager four "V-picks".  They were enticing, with oh-so cool looks, and promises to improve my tone and speed, and not fall out of my fingers.  Right then and there, I decided I could make one heck of a blog outta comparing these new-fangeled picks to old standards.  Later that...

And Now, A Rare mid-blog Update:

Howdy Gang!  A couple items of business here:  First, concerning my last blog on "wood wars".  I’m going to clarify something here.  This topic is relevant and made it into my blog for two reasons: 1. it affects guitar players and, 2. it affects US manufacturing.  It was not intended to be political; a few of you seem to have taken it that way.  Please note that I did not mention that in 2008, when the Lacey Act was expanded to include plant species and Gibson was first raided, George Bush, a conservative Republican, was the president.  I also did...

Wood Wars (This Is Totally Whacked)

The big story in this week’s Tennessean Sunday Paper (Sept 4, 2011) was on Nashville Based Gibson Guitars.  The story wasn’t about how wonderful it was to have one of the world’s premier guitar builders in Nashville.  In fact, it wasn’t about the guitars at all; it was about the wood they are made from.  It seems the Fish and Game department has just raided the Gibson plant for the second time, once again confiscating guitars, files, computers, and yes, wood.  When it comes to guitars and the wood they are made from, Big Brother is indeed watching.  What do...
