Re: Artisan 2x12 cab with a ID60 head?

The Artisan 2x12 cab is not the ideal cab to use with the ID amps. The ID amps being digital are designed for a 4ohm load. Look for a cab that has 2ea. 8 ohm speakers with a 4ohm jack. The Artisan is set up with 16ohm speakers and wired for 8ohms. Good for most tube amps, but not ideal for a digital...

Re: prs se tremonti custom and blackstar id 15tvp

Don Felder was using a 59Lp with stock PAF pickups, and a 57tweed amp with no pedals (no boost or OD) on most of that song to the best of my knowledge. Going to a hotter pickup like the JB would probably be headed in the opposite direction you want. A dimarzio 36th anniversary will get you close. Ch...

Re: Trouble with Artisan 412 A Cabinet

First thing " Do not plug that cab into a head and use it " until you've found the problem. If there's a issue with the cab/speakers/switch you risk cooking your head. Only way to find the problem is start checking the cab with a multimeter. Easiest way to do that is just plug a cable into the cab, ...

Re: Blackstar HT-5R + g major 2 (send return)

I don't have a HT-5R, but do have several Gmajors, and GMajor 2's that I use with other Blackstar amps. It has a "Kill Dry" switch, which will allow it to work with a Parallel or Serial loops. You'll also want a Midi Controller that's capable of sending both PC and CC commands to take advantage of a...

Re: ID 60 1x12 speaker swap?

It's a tough choice. I finally gave up and tried to keep one of just about every popular speaker around the house. Now everytime one of my buddies gets a new amp they suddenly show up wanting to try a few things. :mrgreen: Whole lot easier when you can A/B things side by side..........

Re: ID 60 8 ohm VS 16 ohm

Any load more than 4ohms will have a volume drop with the I.D. amp
Any load less than 4ohms will burn something up.

Re: ID 60 8 ohm VS 16 ohm

I think you may have misread the back of the amp or manual. On the ID60 Head the 2 jacks are wired in parallel. That means you can plug 2ea. 8ohm cabs into the amp jacks (equals 4ohm load),,, or plug 1ea. 4ohm cab into the amp (equals 4ohm load). It's also safe to plug just 1 of your 8ohm cabs in an...

I've always called him direct by phone, and never had a problem being able to speak with him. Exceptional guy to talk with. I'd definitely call him. The few emails I've had from him on pricing were usually in minutes....... -They sell a crazy amount of speakers, so usually best to get price/quotes f...
