I am pretty curious about her amp Shinos Luck 6V. Is it a boutique tube amp similar to Matchless and Dumble due to its price? Unfortunately, I can't see any specifications like wattage, tubes, speakers used, etc. Hope you can help me.

I have been curious too and all the info I searched for thus far had been in Japanese!

The SHINOS website ([You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]) seem to feature only the Luck 6V although at the bottom is a link to a blog that showcases a few other amps (eg WIN) made by SHINOS: [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

The Luck 6V appears to be handwired and is a 40-watt amp.



It's powered by 3x ECC83, 4x 6V6 and 2x GZ34 (rectifier) tubes/valves. The 12" speaker is a British-made [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.].



The price tag is (according to Ishibashi) is about 560,000円 (roughly USD5grand!). Hence, to answer your question - with the handwired nature, price tag and the fact that you need to order one to get one - it's a boutique amp.

For its tone, apart from what you already hear on SCANDAL recordings - SHINOS has these two YouTube vids:





I own a 1995 made in USA Fender Blues Deluxe which is also a 40-watter powered by 3x 12AX7 (ECC83) and 2x 6L6 (predecessor to the 6V6) valves, but with a solid state rectifier. It is LOUD and has a lovely tone and it's not handwired. So, looks like HARU's got herself a great amp. If you noticed, she doesn't have her SHINOS when SCANDAL goes abroad. And the spares she had onstage had been VOX or MATCHLESS - one could imagine in the band's rider, those amps would be the nearest to her Luck 6V a promoter should provide.

First off, thanks to Maharizm for giving me a translated information about Haruna's Shinos signature amp. My apologies, I don't speak and read Japanese.

Anyway, I have some more information to support cherryblossom550's post about Haruna's new toys. Please click the Thank You button to give her a credit.

Lexian and Jade: Need your help to update her rig info after reading this.

About the routing controller or commonly known as the footswitch, it is made by a Japanese company called Free the Tone. I don't want to put too much stuff, instead please visit the website.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

I think that Line6 M5 multi-effects stompbox replaces her good ol' BOSS DD5 for different types of delay which Haru is known for. Sorry, I can't put too much information so, better check the link!

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

What gives me interest most is her new pedal call Holy Fire.



Holy Fire is an overdrive and distortion preamp pedal made by an American company call creation Audio Labs.

* Controls: Gain, Overdrive and Distortion which are cleverly arranged, and a Hi-Cut filter for tone-shaping purposes and vintage speaker simulation.
* Unique LED interaction that lits from the Holy Fire" jig - indicates the transition to wave shaping.
* Solid state preamp.
* Powered by 48VDC universal 90 to 260VAC small power supply (adapter included).
* Small footprint 3.1" x 4.25"

Please check the website  and its demos for more information:

No probs - but I didn't manage to tell anything more from the SHINOS page. ^^

As for HARU's new setup - I did click on the link cherryblossom page although for some reason, I cannot see whatever photo she put up on her post. And I can't see any in yours either! I presume the photos are direct link from tha ameblo blog page?

My only comment for the Line 6 M5 - it does a whole lot more than just delay for HARU to just use it for that.  I understand the photo did not show the DD-3 but it did not capture the entire board either. I've a feeling she'd employ the other features as well. I did a poor translate of the ameblo post on Google - nothing about it replacing her DD-3. But one thing for sure, I can't see the Fulltone Fulldrive 2 - she may well have an O/D setting on the M5 as well as the delay.

META: Though, I'm thinking about tucking the less-used guitars under a spoiler. I noticed how long the first post is.

Sounds like a great idea.

Oh, I did a double take on the older photo of HARU's pedals in the main post - she already used the Holy Fire before! I also saw one with the blue Fulldrive 2, although I can't say which one predates which. Perhaps a look at the ameblo blog cherryblossom posted may help (that blogger seems to follow the band's gear with relish ^^).

At the Hall tour shows I went to last week, I noted HARUNA's second amp setup next to her SHINOS Luck6V.



She uses an EVH 5150III 50 watt head and a 2 x 12" cab.

EVH 5150III website wrote:It’s a three-channel amp; channels one and two share EQ, with gain, low, mid, high and volume controls; channel three has gain, low, mid, high, volume and master presence and resonance controls. Other features include selectable impedance (4, 8 or 16 ohms), dual parallel speaker output jacks, effects loop, headphone jack, line out and black hardware. Included four-button footswitch has 1/4” input jack; also accommodates MIDI footswitching.

On stage, the 2 x 12" cab was stood on its side.

Actually, there have been two photos to corroborate this on  S-H!

One from RINA's blog (taken during rehearsals for the tour):



The other is the BARKS photo (I've blown it up hence the v bad reso!) from the raibu in Atsugi:

Updated!

Also happy to see that SCANDAL still have some of their older instruments on deck.
Such as Haruna's wood thinline tele and Tomomi's 70s JB re-issue.

Thank you so much. Love ya.

Just asking but, would you choose this over an USA Stratocaster? I have an Epiphone SG right now with humbuckers but I'm not sure if I should get a Strat or one of those. Seems like they sound really awesome.

It's a bit off topic..
Anyway it just about personal preferences, PRS has always been considered something between a Fender and Gibson, and you can see it especially in the body shape and fretboard scale( it's 25" where Fender is 25" 1/2 and Gibson 24.75") that's why it's considered quite versatile.
If you can afford one maybe you can give it a go, but I don't own one(I whish I could afford one..) so I'm not the most competent.
If you're still interested in PRS but don't want to spend that much you could give a look at the PRS SE line it's the affordable line like epiphone and squier.
anyway the best you can do is to go to a local shop and try different guitars until you find one you like.
If you have more questions(even though I don't know much)you can pm so we don't keep going OT

Thanks for the info. Sorry for going OT again. It seems like even though im a member for months now I haven't reached the post limit for PM's yet Tongue

Man, does Haruna have a sweet taste in guitars tho. 69 Thinline, Pawn Shop Mustang and so.

The consensus seems to be that she was probably borrowing that guitar. To my knowledge, it has literally never popped up again. My guess is it was the studio's guitar. I thought we talked more about it here but maybe it was in the "Your Song" thread.

I think Mentolo was referring to the question posed by rynardhell about whether he/she would choose a PRS over a Strat when one decides to buy a guitar. Which is out of topic for this thread. ^^

Just to add (and being OT too hahaha) - a PRS proper (non-SE version) is usually more expensive than a USA Strat (unless you get some Custom Shop vintage relic job).

Yes. The guitar should be from J-Melo's studio. As they made Your Song with the J-Melo team.

The acoustic guitar HARU is currently using that was painted by the band for the 「Sisters」PV is a Guild GAD-30. Interestingly, she had played a GAD-30 before and this can be seen in the ESY Live Zepp Tokyo DVD when they played "Sayonara My Friend" (please see the [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] post for this thread). It is not known whether this is the same guitar or just another one they had to be painted.

Photo from the GiGS Oct 2015 issue:



It stands for 'Guild Acoustic Design', her GAD-30 has an orchestra-styled body and this model is currently discontinued. The GAD-30 is made in China and her specs are as follows (taken from [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]):

Spoiler:

   Auditorium body style
   Solid Sitka spruce top
   Scalloped bracing
   Solid mahogany back and sides
   1-piece mahogany neck
   Indian rosewood fretboard
   Grover Sta-Tite tuners
   Indian rosewood pin bridge
   Chrome hardware
   High-gloss polyester finish
   Dovetail neck joint,
   Mother-of-pearl position markers
   Abalone side dots
   Mother-of-pearl headstock logo,
   Ebony bridge pins with MOP dots,
   Ebony end pin with MOP dot,
   Bone nut and saddle
   Wood body bindings,
   Tortoise pickguard
   Back center wood mosaic inlay

I guess the nearest to a GAD-30 in their current 2015 catalogue would be the GAD F-130.

And that Sony studio tube/valve condenser mic is pretty dear (about USD4150 in Japan according to [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.])! ^^

Specs for the C800G/9X:

Spoiler:
■ condenser microphone
■ frequency response 20Hz-18kHz
■ omnidirectional / unidirectional switching
■ output impedance 100Ω ± 20%, balanced
■ front sensitivity
Omni-directional: -35 ± 2dB (0dB = 1V / Pa, 1kHz)
Unidirectional: -32 ± 2dB (0dB = 1V / Pa, 1kHz)
■ S / N ratio
Omni-directional: 73dB or more (1kHz, 1Pa)
Unidirectional: 76dB or more (1kHz, 1Pa)
■ self noise
Omni-directional: 21dB SPL (0dB = 2 × 10-5 square Pa)
Unidirectional: 18dB SPL (0dB = 2 × 10-5 square Pa)
■ external magnetic field induced noise 0dB SPL / 1 × 10-7 square T (1mG) below
■ maximum SPL
Omni-directional: 134dB SPL
Unidirectional: 131dB SPL
■ dynamic range 113dB or more
■ allowable operating temperature 0- + 60 ℃
■ allowable storage temperature -20- + 60 ℃

Hope Haruna didn't have to struggle between buying a new tote bag and a nice microphone haha!
It's a smart investment for her. A lot of Pro vocalists bring their own microphone to the recording studio. Most of them are much much expensive than the C800G/9X.
