Most of my amps don't have reverb. I have a Strymon Flint that fixes that issue quite well.
If I'm running into an amp with an effects loop, I'll put the reverb in there. I have no issues with running into the front end though (some of my amps, I don't have a choice anyway). I tend to run my...
Yup, guilty as charged! :rotflmao
I have to say, that's overall my fave amp of all time.
I also have an Antidote head, which hasn't seen a whole lot of action lately. That will change pretty soon though, with festival season approaching (that amp seems to thrive outdoors on a large stage).
True...but it might still be enough headroom for what he needs. Depends on the size of the room you're playing (if you aren't going to mic it).
I've owned both...still have the 68. The two differently voiced channels (with the ability to have reverb and vibrato on both of them) sealed the deal...
I changed out the stock speaker on mine. Not that it sounded bad at all...I just had a fave that I wanted to put in.
Depending on the situation, I'll use either channel. When I run the amp in stereo with a British-style amp, I use the Vibrato channel. When I use the amp on its' own, I use the...
I recently picked up a Fender 68 CDR. I like it well enough, but I'm not totally sold on the stock Celestion. I've been experimenting a little bit with different speakers, but surely some folks on here experiment A LOT...
So I figured I'd seek some advice.
The sound I'm looking for...
I've achieved satisfactory results with two different methods. (Both with my Dr Z Antidote, and with my father's old 50-watt Marshall MKII.)
Method A: I use a Bad Cat Unleash attenuator. It allows you to set two different levels of attenuation (and that's foot-switchable). So my rhythm volume...
There are two (very soon to be three) L&M stores in Ottawa...the only Dr Zs I've ever seen in these stores have been used models that were traded in.
Apparently they can get them...but they seem to not be a regularly-stocked product.
If you're planning a trip, you could call them and see exactly what they have in stock.
Last time I was in, they were sold out of Cures (there were more on order), but they had a Z-Luxe.
But yeah, anyway, phoning would probably be your best bet for up-to-the-minute inventory info.
I really dig my Dr. Z Antidote.
It's just a huge sounding amp. Great for playing in a power trio. (In larger ensembles, I'll tend to pick amps that don't have such a wide frequency range...the 'Dote can be overpowering in these situations.)
