I also have an od808 ! awesome pedal
I love my Framus cab man. It has a ton of low end, but it stays pretty tight at the same time. I'm probably going to end up getting rid of the Mesa 4x12 actually, the full stack is kind of overkill and the Framus gets the job done fine. I just got rid of the Dual Rectifier and got the JSX in today... I think it sounds killer. The Dual Rec was cool, but it's not the best amp for fast, tight riffs and it wasn't really suiting my tastes anymore. The JSX's Ultra channel is awesome for tight rhythm stuff, and I use the Crunch channel for leads... it's smooth as hell. Clean channel is tight too. I'd definitely recommend it... the OD808 goes awesome with it.

What are some good acoustic guitars? I'm just looking for one that's not very pricey and that I could use for casual jam sessions.

Epiphone EJ-200...awesome, HUGE sound. I could send you some stuff that my friend recorded using one.

Do you have a link to the guitar? $160 is around what I want to spend, just on a decent acoustic.

...

If you want to buy a great acoustic, get a Cole Clark.

Best around, ahead of Taylor, Gibson, Martin, etc.

I did some recording on a Sonor kit that the guy in the studio had hydaulics on. They actually sounded fine, even on the recordings. It especially helped on the 16x16 killing that ten minute long ringing.

I used to have a 20" Projection Ride. Awesome cymbal, and it makes an awesome crash/ride too. I don't know if the newer ones are the same, but mine had a killer bell.


Come to think of it, the guy in the studio had a weird way of deadening the bass drum. He left off the front head and put a piece of railroad track in the bass drum. literally. A 70-some peice of metal. It worked, and the thing sounded like a cannon. How the hell do you think of that though?

I chucked some groovetube tubes in my 5150 II and JJ's preamp tubes and my tone changed heaps if that helps.

On another note, any Framus cobra owners here had their amps biased hotter? did it clear up most of the "fuzzy" tone

Paul doesn't use the Sonic Maximizer, I don't think it's even in his rack anymore. As far as comparisons between those amps... I don't have much experience with the Cobra, but I'd imagine ENGLs are quite a bit tighter sounding in general than a Dual Rec would be. It all depends on what kind of sound you're going for. Rectifiers can sound plenty tight with an OD pedal running in front though... I'd recommend a Maxon OD808 or an Ibanez TS9. You don't need to use it for distortion though... I run an OD808 in front of my JSX (and my Dual Rec, when I had one) with the slightest bit of gain added. It's more for just coloring the distortion and giving it definition.

just IMO you should have thought about this before you bought your dual rec. i'd take an engl over any other amp ever. i'll never forget how incredible the sound was when i heard shai hulud AND the red chord both play through ENGLs when i saw them last year. i almost shed a tear the tone was so awesome.

I would say Mesa is a better rock amp...it just has the right color for mid-gain rock stuff.

Everyone does it...i know, but i really like the tone of my dual rec with a ts808 in front of it. If i could do it all over again though I would have just saved an ass load of money and bought a used 5150 on ebay like 5 years ago when i purchased the mesa. They weren't discontinued yet, and half stacks sold used on ebay for like 600 bucks. ENGLs and Bogners sound fucking amazing, but for the money i don't think anything beats a 5150. It will forever be one of my favorite amp tones.

the ts808 in front of the mesa is really the only way for it to get the sound i like...my biggest problem with the rectos is that the store bought ones all sound like ass, i found this out because Jake has an endorsee model, and it sounds, reacts, and plays completely differently from any recto i have played in a store. Its basically a different amp in the same shell. But yeah his recto kicks serious ass and fixes any issues i had with rectos in the first place, its not buzzy, its not farty, the eq works (GASP!), its tight (no im serious!), and the clean channel which normally sounds like ultra shit on a triple actually sounds damn godly! Its all warm and bluesy! go figure...but yeah i dont like that mesa seems to build their amps to two standards like that...

engls and bogners are in completely differnt categories, engls are well priced, bogners are way too fucking expensive for what you get but both companies make excellent products.
5150 is the cheapest nice sounding amp you can get especially when you get it used, i think i got my 5150II for 570 bucks, but i sold it as soon as i got my powerball cuz i just stopped playin it...

and as for diezels, at least for the sound i go for, i think they are terrible, they are horribly expensive and sound like they have a cheap compressor set on full all the time. it really fucks with your attack, but i guess for more open chords and stuff like that it would work better maybe...still there are way better amps for way less...
