    Box description in vid. Really happy with all tones. The original vid had alot more sweet bite to it prior to youtube.

    Warning-Adult humor from 1:10 to 1:15. Rest of vid is AOK.
    This is a great sounding amp. One of the best for sure.

    Dude, just checked out about 1/2 of your Youtube demos - man you've been busy! Great tones all the way around. It ain't the gear, it's the ear. You really have a broad pallette in the way that you dial stuff in to your style and touch. Great job.

    That Bassman sounds just killer with those pedals.

    Sounds great but would also be nice to hear the bassman straight.

    Did you buy that blond head that's been at Union Grove for a while? Sounds great btw. Wish I could play half as well. Cheers! /jd

    Thanks so much for the kind words and props guys!! I appreciate it.

    Joel, no, I believe that unit at Union Grove is a '62 and they are asking WAY too much for it.
    I tripped across this one at Showcase, it was Gary's private stash.
    Plugged straight in to this amp, with some volume, the tone is sublime..

    When I have a chance to crank it, I will put up some files.

    Sounds great and great playing. How about just cranking it with a little reverb or delay...so we can hear the amp and not the cocktail of pedals ahead of it? (which do sound great, BTW).

    I am doing a demo at/for the purpose of club friendly/low volumes. It is an unfortunate reality for many venues. For my Punk band, I am going to be able to crank the crap out of it an I will pull some sound files from rehearsals and put them up.

    I am typically not an effects user, but my ambient project is calling and I have to gear up again. Poor me!! :D


    The only pedals I have in front are 3 drive pedals. Any verb/delay/spatial effect is coming from the mic/PA.

    Very cool. I'll have to check out that Zvex pedal. I have a similar rig, in some respects (LP Special into '62 Bassman into Marshall basketweave 4x12). Love the heavy grind tones you're getting. Excellent playing too.

    :AOK

    Damn! I think I need a Blonde!
    Nice amp, Emee!

    I'll be interested in hearing that one cranked! Time to get a subscription up on Youtube!
    Thanks for posting!

    Nice stuff, Michael.E!

    That's the sort of tone I want to go for w/ my setup-- simple but very effective for straight ahead rock. Mine's gonna be an Esquire into a ZVex Super-Duper into a tweed 4x10 Bassman. May throw a treble booster in front of it all, but only if it needs it.

    Rock on, my friend!
