    I did it!

    Sorry. I got it! Supposed to be delivered within the next six minutes. Somehow, I doubt that. Thanks a ton, UPS!

    I did it!

    Perhaps you missed the part where I said I had slowly changed my mind. My post includes this sentence: "I began to realize that the gator finish was really one of the better coverings for the amp." So, yes, I'm really good with the Brown Gator. I didn't mean that sentence to imply that I was...

    I did it!

    Yeah. Billy Gibbons is a Carr fan. That amp is the Carr Raleigh, a powerhouse at 3 watts.

    I did it!

    It's about two hours from me, but I've already made up my mind I'm gonna visit some day soon. It'll be a fun day trip.

    You have no idea how right you are!!!!

    I did it!

    Carr makes great amps...ask anyone who owns one. Why all the amp purchases? I came into a bit of cash a couple of months ago. When I asked my wife what I should do with it, she said: "Spend it." Now, that's something I don't need to be told twice! As it is, I've purchased a few...and sold two...

    I did it!

    I just couldn't resist. After three days surfing the web and looking and looking at Carr amps, I decided to pull the trigger. I grabbed this beauty off Reverb and got a really good deal on it. When I first saw it, the gator leather was a turn-off. It looked too showy for me. But as I visited and...

    would somebody fact check this please...

    No...wrong...decimals are a measurement of the intensity of sound. Sheesh! Everyone here should know THAT!!!! So, that means .54 decimals are just .04 louder than a half-a-sound.

    Is it possible...

    No "bother" at all! Advice and assistance like yours is one of the main reasons I come here! Thanks again.

    Is it possible...

    Thanks for all the details and encouragement, but that's a rabbit hole I am not goin' down.

    Is it possible...

    Hmm...I'll have to think this one over carefully. I'm an electronics moron.

    Is it possible...

    Oh...yeah. I didn't think of that (duh!). I need a bigger space.

    Is it possible...

    ...to find a 5e3 circuit amp that's only 5 watts? My recent experience with 20-30 watt amps proves (time and again!) that my studio space of only 160sf is just too small for anything much larger than 5-12 watts. And, no, I don't want to use an attenuator to strangle an amp that was born to sing...

    I want it painted black

    Just watched the YouTube video and I've decided: paint. Definitely paint. If this were an expensive or vintage amp, I'd probably take it to someone who does recovering. But I don't want to go down that rabbit hole on my own. So...a few careful coats of semi-gloss black — with a day or two...

    I want it painted black

    Hmmm...not confident with the recovering part, though I think the idea of taking off the old and using it as a template is a good approach. I'll watch that YouTube video linked by jvin428.

    What's a practice habit you need to break?

    I agree. That's me.

    I want it painted black

    So...I'm considering ordering one of these Monoprice 5-watt amps...almost more as a project than an amp I'd use regularly. And that project would be: taking it apart and pulling all the pieces out of the case, then painting the thing black! I know I just couldn't live with a white amp in my...

    What's a practice habit you need to break?

    Noodling is how I relax...while I'm practicing.

    What's a practice habit you need to break?

    At the end of "Sweet Home Chicago." There's another at the intro to the same song...that one took me about a month before my fingers decided to get it right!

    What's a practice habit you need to break?

    Mine is hurrying too much when trying to learn a new riff. And I practice it at too fast a speed...then have to learn that sometimes it's gonna take a L-O-N-G time to get it down. I remember one Clapton riff that took me weeks before I could play in confidently.
