Ahhh you know, its just another toy. ;)

Never owned a vox type module, so this is something new to play around with. Don't really have any specific expectations of it.

The CC30 a lot different? Just curious.

The last time I ordered from Doug's I splurged on matched sides on the Ruby HG+. A couple of the tubes I tested when they arrived tested worn. I emailed Doug and received this response, I dug up the old email. "Hi Drew, We guaranty our tubes to work in the circuit they were designed for, and to pas...

Hmm, I've spent a lot of money with tubedepot over the years and had no problems, well I did have one but they were very helpful at resolving it. As far as tube up-charges, if your expecting too much improvement you will be let down. I equate them to buying a new TV and the salesman is trying despe...

Hopefully this doesn't hi-jack the thread, but it's kind of pertinent.... I think we can all agree matched/balanced is, for the average guy, not worth the extra coin. But, how is the "low noise/microphonics" upcharge - especially with common brands like EH and JJ? For point of reference, Tube Depot...

Just to double up on drew's comment. Matched/Balanced is just another word for rip off. You rarely get what you pay for. They count on the fact that most people cant test them to verify they got what they paid for. If you're someone like me, and test the s*&t out of your tubes after they show up at your house, when I call them, and I'm like... "WTF?!?" They just say... Send em back, and we'll replace em. No "sorry for your trouble", no anything... rip off... If you find a place where you actually get what you paid for, the price is usually double... the thing is.. most tubes made these days don't have a lot of variance. I mean... there is some, but instead of paying the extra money for balanced/matched, you're better off just buying more tubes. More likely to get some good ones that way. ...and the best test for a tube is your ears. Good luck!

RM4 is a little quieter/cleaner and has more clarity than the RM100 Bruce. That's what you gain by getting an RM4 for the studio over the RM100 Edit: The RM4 is missing some ass though (no matter what power amp you connect it to) compared to the 100. In the studio I'd still prefer the RM4 for those ...

JayDA wrote:I've always liked the RM50 better than the RM100s I had, but I never put a Foglifter or did any mods to an RM100 like I did the RM50. The RM100s always felt "stiff" to me, for lack of a better descriptor.
I own 1 RM50 and 2 RM100's. The 50 and one of the 100's both have MDA boards in them. The other 100 was Modded by Rob w a Foglifter and his Neg. Feedback Control. RM100's BOTH Win over the RM50 by far. So maybe it's because JayDA had stock 100's is why he prefers the 50? I dunno. To me it's obvious. The only reason I keep the 50 is 'cause it's convenient to have something small to drag out to jam at a friends house. Otherwise I wouldn't own one.

I have not directly compared the Foglifter and the MDA boards, but the Neg Feedback Control is WoW!!! Massive bang for your buck on that Mod.

Also tube selection is gonna play in here too Bruce. Some guys that comment could be comparing RM100's w s*&t tubes to a 50 with awesome tubes (and the reverse could be true too). To me the 50 sounds like a practice amp compared to either of my 100's. ...and it doesn't matter what tubes I have in it or etc. It just lacks the power... and I can hear and feel that.

Edit: ..and yeah like Spencer said they sound a bit muffly too.

Still say for a studio you gotta go with the RM4 instead of either of those heads though.

I have them both, and also some RM4's. I like the RM100 the best out of all of them as far as what it does for the tone. RM50 is a much smaller amp, and.... it sounds like it! For a studio I'd suggest you get an RM4. People will disagree, but... I'm right! ;) LoL RM50's are great if you're 65 and pl...

Bruce doesn't have much interest, finacially and developmentally speaking, in Synergy. He has pretty much handed over the reins to the new group. Not saying he isn't involved, but it isn't his baby. I'd be happy to see Synergy do well as the market for used gear would increase, I suspect. I also be...
