D-style tone at twenty to 30 watts at the greatest. Looking for portability as well.
Has a nice ring to it.
VVT X-Model 20 watt version.
Two-Rock Jet or Jet Signature.
Portability??....forget the 20 watts..... just go Zingaro!!!!
two rock jet or a d'lite 22. the zingaro is cool but 50 watts i believe and i don't know how heavy it is. a jet or jet sig is 20-35 watts depending on tubes, and 35 lbs in a combo.
The new 2-channel Blackjack. 21-Watts of " If Dumble met Marshall, in a lunch box amp with a great digital reverb"
Fuchs ODS or Carol Ann OD-2r
No such thing on your website, tell us more!
I'm building an HRM w/Skyliner and feeding a lone EL-84. The finished combo should
allow me to tote a guitar in one hand and the amp in another without any wounding
to the feeble old fart I'm quickly becoming.
Those who know say you can only get that Dumble tone with a 100 Watter and their
point doesn't lack merit. I'm hoping that I can get close without too much disappoint-
Shall we say "coming soon" ? End of year. Maybe at North Carolina and LA amps shows, certainly at the NAMM show.
This sounds cool- I don't know if the issue is watts or the need to have 100 of them (watts) to get a certain tone..
Still- a single EL84 power stage is going to be in the 10-12 watt range?
What's the tranny set up? How 'about your gain stages to drive that single sentry of power?
Are you keeping track of your build on TAG?
As for the OP request. A standard Fuchs ODS 30 is the right answer. Further- there is a used Brownnote unit listed here that seems to fit the bill quite well. The D'lite does a 44/22 power shift so..
The other one I would look at is This Fuchs
I would look at these.....all of them can be built in a combo configuration for portability.
VVT X-Model 22 watt model
Two Rock Jet or Jet Signature
NAMM here we go!!!!!
Definately Fuchs ODS combo.
Andy...huh? what? 2 Channel Black Jack? Dumble meets Marshall? Can you elborate at least and expalin. Sounds like a dream.
I love my Fuchs modded deluxe w/EV12l
Well, currently in "working mule" configuration (a work in progress), but the basic deal should be quite interesting. It's both a non master and master volume amp: It shares tone controls between channels, it has a gain boost that works on clean and dirty (and also keeps the tone controls working in boost mode), a two knob digital reverb right out of our Verbrator and Good Verbrations (dwell and level), an OD output tone control too. The input stage is unique, and imho this guy does Fendery cleans, and the OD has an excellent D-style to Marshall range. It screams with buckers... Still toying with pricing, but likely not far from the original BJ-21/L7 price points...EL-34, 6V6 or EL-84 in the L-7, and 6V6 or EL-84 in the Blackjack.....an EL-34 40 watt version (possibly Train iron based) could be coming...now leave me alone, so I can enjoy my solder and coffee.....
