Re: Tube amp under $1000

Hey, if you're looking for a GREAT, ONBOARD, dirty channel, the Supersonic 22 is fantastic. You don't even need a drive pedal with that amp. I own it and also a Supersonic 60 because it's louder and has more headroom, for gigging with my band. Should be able to find a used '22 around $600? It's real...

Re: Pre-amps? Power-amps? Integrated amps???

IMO, it's not a step "up", just a step "sideways". It allows you to get, say, the preamp of a Vox AC30 and the power amp section of a Marshall. Or vice-versa. It's just a different way to achieve the tones you are after. When I saw that NAMM video of Steve demo-ing those preamp modules, I thought "e...

Re: NEW STUDIO ALBUM FOR 2018?

I'm probably the only one thinking this, LOL, but as much as I have seen Vai lately giving lectures on things OTHER than playing... life, energy, intent, etc.... I think it would interesting for him to merge his love for music/guitar and his mental/spiritual disciplines, into a sort of, for lack of ...

Re: Your connection with your favorite Guitarist

Going to see him in concert on October!!! Good to see the Richie love on a Vai forum!!! LOL He's my #1 as well. I was probably 16 whe...

Re: A thank you letter to Steve

She "beat it"... for now.... I guess 5 years is what everyone is waiting for... hers had metastasized, which in the case of ovarian cancer, is a 30% survival rate. But that's THREE in ten! Praying she's one of the 3.

You hang in there.

Re: A thank you letter to Steve

I wish this forum had a "like" button. Good luck, Jenn. Prayers said for you. One of my best friends just went through ovarian cancer, and my mom just had a cancer scare (3 months later we found out it wasn't cancer).... another friend the same: a 3-month journey to finally discover it wasn't cancer...

Best Vai DVD?

I just watched "Stillness in Motion", and the "front & Center" show... both were great. But I know Vai has several live DVDs.... just wondering what the Vai fans think is his best one? For example, the Astoria one looks cool, probably has alot of the older stuff on it, and Billy Sheehan on bass? But...

Pickups: Gravity Storm/Dark Matter vs Dark Matter 2

Correct me if I'm wrong... There's Gravity Storm, then Dark Matter is just GS with the metal cover? And then the DM2 pickups were designed specifically for the new woodie? I'm not a Jem owner, but am looking to put a set of Vai pickups into my old Charvel... and had decided on the Gravity Storms. Ho...
