Thumbs up Blankenship VARIPLEX In Action....Clips!

thought i'd share a really cool amp that i've had the chance of banging on and hearing live a few times recently!
this is from another board posted by a friend and fellow guitar player named dave phillips here in LA....

I ran a reissue Les Paul with a Tom Holmes in the bridge into the Variplex dimed across the board dropped to 90 volts. The head went into a 70's Marshall cab with 25Watt Greenback reissues. It was then miked with a SM57. No EQ. Dry. Perfect mid-range. What you are hearing is all power tube distortion. No master volume. Hat's off to Roy Blankenship and Dave Friedman for designing an amazing amp.
