I've tried several brands and I really like GHS Boommers. .09-.11-.16-.26-.36-.46

I must confess that I really don't think there is really a big diff between brands of the same wound and material!

You have to special order them through GC. Smallest quanity is $36 usd for a 24 pack. Pay for the picks, get the reciept, come back and grab them when they call you and tell you that they have arrived.

It will be well worth it my friend.

twice a week at rehearsal I get to crank it for a few hours. Other than that it's bedroom levels. But I practice like six(6) hours a day, somedays more.

Maybe a year or less for the tubes? good to know.

I understand that it's a bit harder to do it that way. But when you do make up your mind you will save $$$ by buying direct from the factory.

Some company's like Carvin will send you a demo dvd to check out.

Good Luck.

Well I think there's an amp for everybodys taste. The Workhorse fits my taste and needs exactly! It's a botique amp and I love it. I was searching for tone, not cost....I do understand that this is only MY opinion thou. I was just giving him another amp option to have fun with. As far as the powertu...

It's not the pedal alone with a tube amp. You use the pedal to really push the tubes into overdrive. the pedal just boosts and EQ's the signal from your guitars pickups before it gets to the tubes. I agree that lots of great tube amps out there has great gain sounds alot. But why do all or most of t...

It comes with the Jekle and Hyde overdrive/distortion pedal. Such a shame to corrupt an all valve signal path with horrid solid state pedals! Do your research. Most PROs get their distortion from good pedals on top of their amps distortion than the amp alone. THAT IS A FACT MY FRIEND!!! Even Steve ...
