Hi Everyone,


I was offered a trade for some old vintage parts. The amp is a Alessandro blue tick. Any comments on the amps?

Yeah I would go for it. I have had a couple of George's things and they are wonderful.

You can't go wrong with Alessandros .... hi-fi sounding amps.

I've got 3 and I like them all very much. If you can't stand a bit of hiss, you might want to be careful though. All of mine have a bit of 'wind' when they are idling.

Original Blue Ticks were 6v6 amps. More recent versions are made to accept KT66, EL34, 6l6, 6v6 without need for rebiasing. George makes excellent, excellent amps.

I did the deal and got an early production one that has 6v6's in it. Can I change the tubes? Do I need to bias it? When it is idling it does sound like the wind is blowing...is there anything that can be done to get rid of the wind?

If it is an early Blue Tick, I don't think you can change the tubes to other types. If you can, you would definitely have to rebias to do it. I think the whistling is a feature of class A amps. The Alessandros are true class A at all times.

I would check with Alessandro about these questions. Others who have picked up his amps in the secondary market have reported that he is very helpful.

I hope you enjoy the amp.

I've got a Beagle. It is a function of the design. George has told me that he can get rid of the hissing but it would change the sound of the amp. It makes no difference. When you are playing at volume you cannot hear it. If you have a specific questions, george has always been helpful to me. Send him an email or call him andyou'll get all of the info you need.

I've got a Beagle and an English, and used to own a Redbone... Great amps, all! :dude

I played a Redbone several months ago that completely blew me away. The English is a stunningly good amp as well. George's stuff is simply killer.

I'm a huge alessandor fan. His working dogs are amazing. Heard one recently and was blown back.
Unfortunately they are voiced for a style of music I don't play.

whistling? interesting way to put it...

someone correct me, but i think the first blue tick was made for Eric Johnson. George loved the product so much, he began offering as part of his line. and yes, that amp ROCKED. enough so for me to get one myself. course, by then george had them "whistling", and thankfully, no change in tone. :)

I might be convinced to purchase it from you if you did take it....

Incredibly underrated amps. I have a redbone and it's staying - have had it fro 6 months now which is a pretty long time for me.

Gorgeous cleans with that elusive "swirl" and body to the cleans. Cranked she's very plexi like - lotsa OOMPH!
