Fun stuff guys! Any of you thinking of heading to that tonefest in southern CT? I might head up there with the Bowery Tele or Artinger Blondie Jr. and giving it a go. I'm sure they'd love to see some of this magnificent pile of gear you've got collected here!

The Concorde? That's a hell of an amp. I've been getting to know that one pretty well. I have it for a few more weeks...I'm doing some clips and a review of it. Then the K19.

I liked/had good moments on all the amps yesterday- no clunkers in the bunch.

The 53 GT and 58 335 are pretty off the charts guitars. As was this 1970 tele- you can see its headstock in the first picture...the one where I've got plumber butt (pic now gone?).

There was also a Park from 196? that was looking so cool, but it's owner had to split before we could hear it.

Yep, that's a JJ bari in the background (gettin' no love yesterday)

There was a whole acoustic room too...old gibbies martins and nationals. Good stuff.

CT? I don't think so. I'll keep it local until my wife gives birth to #2 son.

You simply can't get any good tones with those amps without the UA...........now c'mon..........get it right!

There were two of Mr. Ho's attenuators with FX loops and a Richter clone (not used) Mine's in the rack and the other is on top of the Marshall in the first pic.

Jack,

I see it...................you know I am kidding.....also looks like it did not get much use.......


I bet Barry's Glaswerks would have sounded so much better with the UA....:p

No hell given man. You were just strirring up ****. Like you are now...it's OK. We know what's going on. That's just you. If you say no harm...cool.

For everyone else-


I see the UA/Ho as a must have for amps that rely on the power amp being driven and some tranny saturation as part of the tone- if volume is a concern. To me I think they benefit old Marshalls and Voxes- perhaps a tweed Fender, though I can't speak to those as I have never owned one. Amps like the GW are engineered for MV circuits from day one. Their tone is in the pre-amp and the power amp is mainly reproducing the pre tone. Yes, it may sound better when the power amp is wound up a bit, but not to the extent seen/heard in an old NMV marshall for sure.

J. Carter- As for the Komet clips, they'll be a little while, but they'll be good I promise.
