wow - GREAT Tone - I'm in the process of buying a D'lite and I would love to know which model you playing - the 22 or the 44?
what tubes? 6L6 or 6V6.
is you amp the "super Deluxe " spec with the higher quality components?
what exactly does the term " bump the OD Trim " mean - did you turn...
Thanx for listening - I've been looking for this type of sound for 20 years.
when I first got the English I got a 2x12 Vox cab with Blues which sounds great - but there was still something missing.
There are plenty of us that are sometimes embarassed by the fact that we've dropped Thousands of...

Thanx Again - Like I said before - I love this amp - it's not a Loud Rock kinda thing but for tasteful bluesy stuff it's my favorite.
Having said all that - I'm still going to get a Komet concorde for my darker half!
Here's a more recent clip of my English through a 2x12 Celestion Blue Vox cab - PRS Santana II - Straight into amp.
Please excuse the "Familiar chord Progression" it's just to show the sound of the amp.
I was using the stock 5691 phillips Pre amp tubes and a JJ EL84 Quartet - I've recently...
