    Amp tech in Pittsburgh?

    If you can drive an hour and a half south you can find guitar CPR in Fairmont, WV. None better.

    The Best Solid State Guitar Amps Ever Made?

    I recently picked one of these up for $75! Replaced the reverb tank and it’s good to go. I really like it. There are some good demos of this model on YouTube.

    I also have one of these. They are fantastic!

    Old school Solid States

    I recently picked up a red stripe Peavey Bandit. Very cool SS. I had a Trademark 60 for a while and it was also very nice.

    Roadworn Strat Owners - did you keep the pickups or upgrade them?

    I put a 60’s RW together last year. I swapped out the Tex Amex for PV 59’s. Love them and have no plans to ever change them.

    I have one of these and they are fantastic!

    Tubescreamer alternative

    Timmy or a Wampler Euphoria are both very good. I am sure there are many other great choices - so many great pedals now days.

    Got the new reverb in. Works great. A touch of verb really adds some depth to the tone. I am digging this amp - fantastic for the price for sure!

    I took the reverb tank out today and did some investigation. The little output transformer has a broken wire. It’s too tiny to even soldier back on. I just can’t live without a little reverb. New MOD tank on the way! Even with a new tank I am still just a little over $100 in this one!

    I pulled the reverb tank out and looked it over the wires looked good. I will use a meter and give it a good check out this weekend.

    I picked up a Red Stripe Peavey Bandit (USA) yesterday for $75! Very clean and it sounds great! The reverb is not working so I need to look into that. I watched some YT videos on this amp and went looking for one. I am very impressed with it. I takes drive pedals very well. You can get some...

    I want a modeler that doesn’t require tweaking to sound good.

    Find a used eleven rack. I have had one for years. Easy to use and sounds great. I don’t use a lot of effects - just the basics. I use it for home practice with headphones. Live I use good tube amps with good pedals.
