    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.

    +1

    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!
