Want to get a new clarine...
What is the best clarinet...
Dean Dave Mustaine VMNT v...
I am 18 and currently go to Eau Gallie High School and Brevard Community College (Dual Enrollment program). I hope to go to the Florida Institute of Technology (FIT) next fall and work towards a Masters in Mechanical/Aerospace, Mechanical/Electrical, or Electrical/Computer Engineering...i am also considering Chemical Engineering. I haven`t quite decided what i want to do, but i am pretty sure it will be some type of engineering.
I love music; it is an integral part of my life. I could not live without music. I would like to become a professional musician; a guitar vituoso. I will most likely make music in my spare time (if i end up having any!).
I love playing music, as well as listening to it. My favorite genres are melodic death metal, thrash metal, heavy metal, progressive metal, symphonic power metal, classic and modern rock, post rock (instrumental rock), blues, jazz, classical...pretty much everything except rap, hip hop, pop, and country. My favorite band at this particular moment is Dark Tranquillity.
I play a Jackson King V, but hope to get a DBZ Bolero, Cavallo, Bird of Prey, or Venom.
My amp is a Randall RM80. It is discontinued, but i got it used from someone in Indiana. It uses modular preamps that emulate specific amps (blackface=fender blackface, plexi=marshall plexi, etc). I own the 1087 (1086, Dan Donegan Signature, mod`d by Pete Tureley (Gigamods)), the Ultra Lead (also disconinued. i will eventually have Pete mod it to Mesa Mark specs), the Clean (basic Fender cleans; currently being mod`d by Anthony (Salvation) in the Czech Repuplic; he is doing his famous Loneclean mod, based on the Mesa Lone Star).
I recently switched the tubes in the amp: JJ 6V6`s (25W) to Ruby 6550C`s (80W); EH 12AX7 in the PI (phase inverter) to a JAN Phillips 5751; EH in the V1 to a Tungsol 12AX7; EH`s in the 1087 to a Penta 12AX7M and Tungsol 12AX7; and EH`s in the Clean to a Mullard 12AT7 and JAN Phillips 5751. It sounds the best it has ever sounded. Perfect metal tone. I haven`t tried cleans b/c my clean is being mod`d. Great amp series. Highly recommenced.
