Gear Review: Firefly FF338 Guitar

Street Price: $139.91 Hey folks!  Here is a follow up to my Firefly FF338 First Impressions post a few weeks ago.  I'll call this a thorough review now that I've spent some time with this guitar.  I'll just cut straight to the chase: this guitar is the best bang for the buck I've ever played.  BUT! It will need...

Gear Review: Vox MV50 AC

Street Price: $219.99 Overview Vox made a splash a few years ago with the release of it's MV50 series of amps.  Touting a new technology they call "Nutube,"  they are an all-analog 50 watt compact tone machines.  I'd say it's the smallest amp head I've ever encountered without being in a pedal format.  With a...

Gear Review: Mooer Radar

List Price: $147 I'll just start this review by saying this is one of the best pieces of gear I've ever bought.  It is safe to say that 95% of my guitar playing since I bought my Mooer Radar has utilized the Mooer Radar.   The world of Impulse Responses (IRs) has been growing drastically...

Gear Review: Orange Micro Dark Terror

Street Price: $189 OverviewOrange really revolutionized the amplifier market with its original Orange Tiny Terror series of "lunchbox" style guitar amps.  Typically about the size of a lunchbox, simple controls, lower power, "lunchbox" amps are great bang for the buck as far as portability, tone, and power.  Every manufacturer has a "lunchbox" amp now.  So...

Gear Review: VHT Redline 20RH

The VHT Redline 20RH Head was a budget amp I had seen periodically, but I just couldn't find much information on it.  The whole Redline series has a 20 watt head (which is what I bought), a 20 watt 1x8" combo (which is what most of the information online referenced), 40 watt head and 1x12...

Gear Review: Bugera G5 INFINIUM

Street Price: $249.99 The Bugera G5 Infinium head, to me, is the ultimate bedroom amp.   I feel like the G5 often gets overshadowed by its one-trick-pony cousin, the V5 combo, but for similar money, this head outshines the V5 in almost every way.  It is a Class A tube amplifier powered by 12BH7 power tube...
