I've saved up, and it's time to upgrade from my H&K Tubemeister 18 head. I like the sound of the TM, but it doesn't have quite enough clean headroom and volume to keep up with my band.

I love the sound of the Boogie Mark V:25 and want to get it, though I'm wondering if I should spring for the V:35. As far as I can tell there are three main differences:

  • Solo boost
  • Extra cab clone voicing
  • 10 more watts running through 4 power tubes

I guess the solo boost is handy, but not a huge selling point. Don't give two shits about the cab clone voicing. The third item intrigues me.

Would there be a noticeable difference in headroom? My gut instinct says no, but there has to be difference with increased wattage and more power tubes, no?

Also, I play in my bedroom about 80% of the time, so would it wear the tubes unevenly if I ran at 10 watts most of the time?

I know this question is really super nitpicky, so I thank you for any advice you can give me.

I needed a Les Paul though! I could afford a Gibson but wifey wouldn't like that. Anyways, I got this badboy in the mail yesterday from Sweetwater and I AM IN LOVE! This is my first Les Paul and holy shit this thing is so versatile and barky and just perfect for rock/blues. I fucking love it. I think it's my 2nd favorite guitar now next to my Jackson Kelly(I'm a metalhead). This thing cost $550 and it was worth every penny and then some holy shit what a guitar! Here's a link for the details of the guitar if you're interested.

I’m a social anthropologist and I’m writing a paper on impact of space exploration on culture. Wanna say a few words?

Well, my main method will be media analysis, but I would still like to include a few words from "ordinary people" and "ordinary space geeks" like myself. 🙂

Do you guys think there's a relation between space exploration and modern culture? How do you see it? How you see it's potential in the near future? Do you think space exploration have/will have an important impact on our culture? If yes, how so?

There are no wrong answers, and you can reply anything you want, if you want. 😀 Cheers!

[PLAY] My STP/Scott Weiland Tribute

Hey /r/guitar, I've posted before but never a full and complete song. When Scott Weiland died I knew it was time to finally start and finish a cover. In my mind I could keep perfecting it, but tgrough the process of recording and learning more I've gotten more and more ideas. I hope you guys enjoy it!
