    Lets discuss the Vibro-Champ

    To double the volume of a 6W amp, you need 60W ! A 15W amp is not very much louder than a 6W amp. What gives the perception of significantly more volume is the efficiency of the speaker/s and how much more air is being moved via the cab. The tiny stock speaker is what gives the 6W Champ its...

    Do Weber Signature series alnico speakers sound good?

    > "I guess what I'm after here are (for instance) comparisons between the Weber alnico Sig 12" and say the Weber 12A125A" No comparison. The Signature is far inferior.

    Which AC-30 should I buy?

    > "They are also probably more reliable that the ones made in the U.K." Probably not, but it wouldn't be saying much if they were.

    Which AC-30 should I buy?

    > "all new AC30s are crap because they are made in China" True enough. :p Crap is a harsh word, but they ain't that great.

    Best clean tube practice amp (with choices)?

    Well, so far that's 5 votes/71.43% in favour of "Fender?", with no specific suggestions forthcoming. Is that helpful to ya? I'm not intending to be difficult, but I'm not sure how you came up with your list for your stated requirements. And if you want helpful suggestions, you maybe need to...

    Suggestions for acoustic guitar amps.

    Umm, as soon as you're talking more than one acoustic amp, surely a PA is the way to go. Multiple acoustic guitar players on a church stage with their own amps doesn't sound at all desirable. And one would think that any church needing to amplify multiple acoustic guitarists would have, or be in...

    Small tube combo, any recomendations??

    > "The best sounding, low power, all tube amp, that's surprisingly affordable, is a Zinky Blue Velvet." ...25 Watts and 45 lbs!! Hardly low power in the context of 2W, nor portable, unless being compared to the likes of a Fender Twin.

    Need Info on Trace Elliot Velocette

    Yes, there were transformer problems, but should have been sorted by now. I had a 12R. Good sounding amp, but the control panel is MIGHTY inconvenient, IMO, which is why I no longer have one.

    tell me what to buy!?

    > "If price is no object- I say grab the real thing from the company that invented the 4x12." I don't think it took them long to work out the dimensions for the smallest possible cab that you could squeeze four 12" speakers into, or rather the smallest cab you could squeeze eight 12" speakers...

    Suggestions for acoustic guitar amps.

    AER: all I've heard sound great, and they're compact and lightweight. Roland's AC-60 is their dedicated acoustic amp. IIRC, it weighs ~23 lbs. It sounds good, and is relatively inexpensive.

    '49 Champ Reissue

    > " At the price point these are coming in at, I think Fender wants some of the modding craze that happened with Epiphones VJ." Unlike the VJ, hopefully the Champion 600 will sound good out of the box, so as not to need to be modified.

    low watt bass amp for recording?

    > "If I hooked up a 12 inch speaker to a silverface Fender Champ would it sound about the same but at a lower volume?" If you hooked up a bf/sf champ to the MMB's 12" 8-Ohm Oxford ceramic, it would sound pretty similar, and at a lower volume. The volume wouldn't be that much lower due to the...

    Will a 12" speaker fit in a Champ?

    > "Btw, a Fender SF MusicMaster Bass cab is a great swap if you want a 12" speakered Champ. The MMB cab has a 12" speaker cutout, and the Champ chassis bolts right in." I have a custom Champ circuit in a SF Champ chassis that's in a MMB cab. This is how I bought my #1 amp from Winfield Thomas...

    Buddy Holly's Fender Pro Amp: 5E5 or 5E5-A ?

    THANKS! I feel so embarrassed now. :o When I read this I said to myself, "I had always thought both circuits dated to 1955, but maybe my info was wrong, and I'd better double check over at the Fender Field Guide before responding." So, I go over to the FFG, and read 1956. I'm sure I checked...
