26 Jul The Admin post

Update as per July 26th, 2012 by Banane (Franz)

Dear members,

well, here we go. Forum is online. You can find it in the “Members content” menu. While it looks a bit different, it’s a full featured forum with everything a forum need. You can start your own discussions there, write your own articles and search for earlier posted stuff.  Please tell me, if you need another category or file upload to publish your own mp3s, images or whatever.

We did a few more updates to the menu, and we’re planning an own “Beginners section”, dedicated to all beginners, hosted by our own Andre, JaiminhoPagina.

As usual, please tell us what you think, either in the comments or in the forum :)

Thanks,

Your solodallas.com Team

Hello Ladies and Guys,

as Fil always said, this site is not only about him, but also about you, the members.

So, if anybody here wants to show off and discuss his/her gear and publish tone or video examples in an own article here at solodallas.com? Just mail me at banane@exception.at then.

Cheers,

Franz

Hello Guys,

Question: what do you think about a full searchable knowledge database page?

We already have many small pieces of information here and there in the comments that are hard to find. What is the tuning frequency for a “half step down tuning?” Which Amps did AC/DC use for “Powerage”? Such things. Wouldnt it be great to be able to write such information down somewhere where its easy to find 2 months later?

Please tell me in the comments if this is of interest for you.

Cheers,

Franz

 

Initial posting by Banane (Franz) on 14th April 2011

Hello Guys,

this posting will inform you about technical and organizational changes here at solodallas.com.

As some users requested, it would be nice to see who of us is online here at the site now.

So now we have a nice new side bar plugin at the right top showing all members who are currently here.

Work for an advanced comment editor and our file space is currently under progress. I will keep you updated.

Have a nice day,

Franz

25 Jul The Big Speaker Shootout

In my belief, speakers are the most important part of your tone. They are not only devices which convert electric current into sound. All speakers have their unique voice, they all sound and feel different. Because of this, I have always thought about them as an instrument. A good speaker actually acts just like an instrument, reacting to your picking dynamics, creating feedback, co-operating with your amp and your guitar in a way that can yield very pleasing results – if you use them properly. A good speaker has this mojo which cannot be written down in words. :)

 Just in case you missed the terrific post about the history of Celestion by JaiminhoPagina, you can find it right here

Why am I telling this to you? Because it connects directly to this one. I think that post is worth a reading before digging into this one, as it sums up the history of celestion, and the speaker models, cones etc. over the time very well, which I think is very important before you listen to them and judge. And now let’s get to the topic 😛

A long long time ago in a galaxy far away… there was a forum thread on thegearpage.net, started by Scumback Speakers, which contained amazing soundclips of different speakers. To be more specific, it is a comparison between original pre-rola celestions, new celestions, as well as several celestion clones, like Scumbacks.

Unfortunately the links became dead, so the clips were unavailable for some time. Recently I contacted Scumback Speakers, and I asked them to update the links, so that the clips are once again available to everyone! (more…)
