Preferred Series 7025 Audio Tubes

Although the tubes that were in there don’t suck, I do like the new ones better. My initial reaction was that they’re brighter, but it’s not quite that simple. With the neck pickup selected, when strumming an open E chord, the old tubes actually have a more boomy sound, with the low E and A strings dominating the sound, covering up the high B and E strings a bit. When alternating between the low E, A & D strings, it sounded a little fuzzy & undefined, with a bit of a “Grind”. The new tubes allow the higher notes to really ring out on the open chords, but the low notes are still full sounding. The lows don’t quite drone as much, but they sound a bit tighter–more controlled, and without the grind. These tubes overdrive just as soon, but they do it more “Gracefully”. With individual notes picked, especially higher notes, this is where it’s somewhat surprising. Although open chords sound brighter, solo lines sound warmer. With the old tubes, notes on the higher strings sound more brittle and tinny–especially on the G & B strings. With the new tubes, they sound bright but smooth–cleaner & “Quieter”, if you will. It’s kind of a paradox that they they’re both brighter and less brittle & harsh at the same time. The differences translate into the high gain channels, but I wanted to use the clean channel as a starting point, since it’s less likely to cover things up. The mod that Jerry Pinnelli at FJA Mods did on my preamp is PHENOMENAL sounding–more along the lines of a modded Marshall JCM800 now. The new tubes really go well with the mod, and give me the sound I was looking for.

Keisman Pedals – Custom Guitar Effects

There are a number of sources that can lead to signal degradation resulting in high end loss in your tone. If you’re running over 18.5 feet of cable, even without pedals, you’re going to lose some of the high end in your signal. If that’s the case, you will benefit from running a buffer. It will bring that high end back into your signal taking it back to it’s original, lovely tone. Another source can be a pedal it’s self! For example, a certain popular volume pedal is notorious for sucking your tone and leaving you with a flat, floppy, lifeless signal. By placing a buffer like our J-Buff on your board, you can alleviate that loss in tone and still be able to use that particular pedal causing the issue. We suggest running the buffer at the very end of your pedalboard for a couple of reasons. Number one, this puts it closest to the amp preventing you from losing more signal after the buffer due to cable length. Second, buffers tend to not play nice if placed in front of some pedals, especially fuzz pedals, so placing them after allows the fuzz to get hit with the original signal and go through the buffer retaining it’s original sound. As with any pedal, experimentation is the best way to figure out what works best for you. All buffers are not made equal either, you’ll find some of the internal buffers in effects pedals are not doing their job quite as well as a dedicated buffer like ours can. At trade shows we often showcase this by allowing someone to play our demo board through an amp with a popular buffered pedal at the end of the board. We then pull that pedal off and replace it with our buffer and let the person play through the board again and this typically converts people to using a dedicated buffer like ours.

Divided by 13 JRT 9/15 Guitar Amplifier Head

I have owned and played many Divided by 13 amplifiers, and the JRT has to be one of the most versatile and beautifully voiced of the line. The option of either 6V6 and EL84 power tubes, volume dials on 2 different voiced 5879 pentodes that may be blended, a 6 position “Bright cap” dial, and a high cut control… YES! You’ll find so many gorgeous tones in this low wattage amp! I am only letting it go because I unfortunately need to replace a broken home appliance with the sale of this item. Included is the Divided by 13 head cover and a power cord. I will ship it in its original padded box as well for safe delivery. Get this near mint Divided by 13 JRT 9/15 at a bargain price while you can! Good luck! Take a moment to see the items I have sold on eBay/Reverb and my customers’ feedback. If payment is not received within 24 hours of an accepted bid, I will cancel the order. With an overly stout and painstakingly developed power supply made to accommodate two sets of power tubes, the JRT 9/15 offers the biggest sound in a low wattage amplifier heard to date. Starting from right to left, the single input of the amplifier feeds the inputs of two 5879 Pentodes, each with its own volume control and blendable. Each is voiced differently: one is brighter with more clean headroom while the other is gainier and thicker in the low mids. Added to this volume is a 6 position switch which offers a “Bright cap” selection. The last knob is a high cut for the overall amplifier. The “Mode” toggle provides a selection of either 9+ Watts with 6V6s, or 15+ Watts with EL84s, offering and exceeding the best tones available in some of our favorite late 50’s American 6V6 amplifiers, and our favorite EL84/EL34 English amplifiers. Don’t be fooled by its size; this one sounds huge!

1067 E Montague Ave, Charleston, SC

The chips were topped with cheese, black beans, salsa and jalapeños; We added grilled chicken for an extra $2. The taste and the price was that of typical Nachos, however some tortillas were burned. The quesadilla contains sautéed onions, steak and “Fresh jalapeños”, the lunch special is served with a side of tortilla chips, salsa and sour cream. My first impression was that they provided me with a pretty good amount of food considering it was a lunch special. After tasting the quesadillas I felt they were ok, they state that they use fresh ingredients on their site, perhaps they do but I would have expected bolder flavors, instead it was somewhat bland, but the tortilla chips were REALLY good, I could not stop eating them. Fun atmosphere, good food! Corn chips and a fun variety of salsas to choose. It’s a fantastic place for a happy hour meetup! The triple dipper is really good and I’ve never had anything less than great customer service. We love good Mexican, coming from the southwest, and are always excited at the chance for good tacos. Our taco and burrito meals were pretty good, though. We love this place, it’s our new regular spot! Salsa choices are great! The burrito is “Slap your grandma” good. I’ve heard good things from several people so maybe this was an off night. We made it in time for happy hour and got the mason jar margarita special for $6 – good deal on a big ol’ margarita but it was kind of bland and also melted fast in the heat – ended up tasting like sugar water. I’m pretty sure the guacamole is from a container – not good. The few times that I have been the service has been friendly but slow and forgetful( waited a good while for drinks even though it wasn’t busy and I was seated at the bar…). I will keep giving it a shot because the food and drinks are so good. My boyfriend got the mo Burrito that he said was very good and very filling.

Sweetgrass Social Event & Design

The name on your tickets must match the name on your passport, and since changing the name on your passport requires a marriage certificate and a wait of about three weeks, you probably won’t have a chance to make the update before you leave for your honeymoon. Writing out thank-you notes by hand can wait until you’re back from the honeymoon, but not much longer so make a note to yourself to get on it right when you’re back. In the meantime, post a mass thank you to your wedding guests on your Facebook page. Guests will appreciate a sort of ‘wrap-up’ to your wedding. Assuming you plan to keep your wedding dress in some way or another, it’s important to get it cleaned by a wedding dress specialists as soon as possible. If you plan to freeze the top tier of your wedding cake, make sure to move it from the fridge to the freezer before you leave. If you wait to return rented suits or tuxedos until you return from your honeymoon, you’re likely to rack up some extra fees. Don’t leave any presents at your wedding venue or anywhere else guests could have dropped them off. If you’re not going home after the wedding, ask your parents if they’ll take them until you get back from your honeymoon. This may seem a little trite compared to the other items on the list, but your hands are going to be getting a lot of play in honeymoon photos. Your wedding mani/pedi will probably get a little worn on the big day, so a refresh can’t hurt. For your honeymoon, pick a light natural or clear color that will grow out well and match everything. Don’t wait until after your wedding to pack-you’ll be way too tired/excited/emotional/any other possible feeling. You do not want to get sick on your honeymoon and staying healthy on vacation starts with healthy habits at home. Eat right and stay fit in the days, weeks and months leading up to your honeymoon.

We spent two days on the beach and due to bad weather, two days wandering around the city with the girls. Children are terrible, impatient shoppers and after the second cocktail, people start judging. Within 10 minutes, we turned to each other and agreed we were coming back as soon as possible sans children so we could do all the fun grown up stuff. On the carriage tour, we passed the Civil War era city jail which our children subsequently became OBSESSED with. At one point the tour guide asked if anyone had any questions and our seven year old’s hand shot up. The food in Charleston was amazing! Everyone told us to go to The Ordinary and we ended up having to cancel two separate reservations due to either exhausted children or meltdowns, both the child and adult varieties. In any event, The Ordinary is definitely top of the list when we go back, sans children. My husband took this picture of our seven year old pondering the end of life as she stands before a fallen tree. 1500 years old and 65 feet tall, it was so beautiful. Within 10 minutes of arriving, my husband had convinced our 9 year old to attend SCAD and had selected the square where we will be purchasing our retirement home. Over the years they have been buying up historic buildings throughout the city and and using them for housing, classrooms etc. Some ladies Google image Channing Tatum shirtless, I Google search “Cheryl and Griff Day.” I have cooked my way through their cook book and did a blog posts on their best ever chocolate cake.

Columbia SC project to bring homes, restaurants, stores, more

A 70-acre development with homes, stores, restaurants, parks and more is being planned for North Main Street, potentially becoming a catalyst for economic growth in north Columbia, city leaders say. All those components depend on market demand as the development is built out over several years. City leaders believe the North Main corridor is ripe for these things. “It’s our turn,” said Cecil Hannibal, director of the city’s Eau Claire Development Corporation, which guides and encourages development in north Columbia. The corporation is helping a private developer, WAT Properties, move the Azurest project forward. Details of the project are contained in documents filed with the city. The project will be officially announced at 9:30 Thursday morning at the Greenview Plaza parking lot at 6820 N. Main St. The planned elements of Azurest are a reflection of what members of the surrounding community have asked for, said Willie Tompkins, owner of WAT Properties. “It’s important to get the right mix, what the community wants, what it’s lacking and asking for. … We want businesses that will actually enhance the community.” The Azurest development is a continuation of “All the development and investments we’re doing in north Columbia and throughout the city, for that matter,” said City Councilman Sam Davis, who represents the north Columbia area. He, Hannibal and Tompkins expect it could be a catalyst for more economic development in the area. Seventy acres of development is big for any part of Columbia. By comparison, the large CanalSide apartment community in downtown Columbia, beside the Columbia Canal, is about 20 acres. North Columbia has the advantage of space to develop plus the benefit of tens of thousands of cars that daily travel I-20, which offers prime access to the Azurest site, Hannibal noted. At this point, the development is being financed entirely by private funds, Tompkins said. He declined to provide an estimated cost of the development but said it would “Create literally hundreds of jobs and millions of dollars of investment.”
