Why are they called 5e3?
Pretty much every single amp. I have yet to find "the one" that sounds and functions exactly how I want all by itself.
What amps do you prefer ??
I currently own a Bogner Goldfinger 45 Superlead and a BluGuitar Amp 1 Mercury Edition. Before being all digital for about 10 years I had an Egnater Tourmaster and a Diezel Einstein.
That's the model number.
Well I usually go for light gain through to ACDC mid gain crunch and early 80's hard rock like Scorpions and my 79, 80, and 82 2203's and 82 4104 do those sounds better than any comparable 50/100(or even 20/30) watt amp like Suhr, Landry, Engl, Orange, Egnator etc, no matter what the volume. You may have more available gain, and that gain may be smoother, darker, but none of the sounds I'm going for are smooth, dark, or any gainier than what a 2203 puts out with the Preamp on 8.
Fender Princeton Reverbs... I’ve had several, both originals and reissues - just don’t get on with them
Tweed Deluxe-types fall into the same category for me - except with a Tele, then they’re killer
I figure something is wrong with not ears.
This is the what amp every one loves but you don't.
The You are Wrong and not listening right Thread .
Not a big fan of the SLO <--------runs and hides
Fizz....... To me that’s the difference from modern Marshall’s and old Marshall’s. The last word that comes to my mind when playing good old Marshall’s, especially NMV ones, is fizz. Listen to Malcolm and Angus’s tone on back in black. Definitely wouldn’t call that fizzy.
As far as amps people love that never really worked out for me....... pretty much any el84 amp. I’ve really tried to like them when they became really popular but I’ve been disappointed most times with a boxy tone lacking balls. Not to say people haven’t gotten great tones with them. And I could see them being great for recording. But as far as playing in a live mix they just sound kinda week. I’m sure there may be some exceptions to this though
Have all the amps ever made been listed yet?
I've been playing an assload of Rush and originals lately. 53 here.
This is really a good point. I've said for a long time that when I play electric guitar the entire signal-chain is the instrument. Rather than impose my technique on the signal chain, I've had to learn how to adapt technique to get the most out of what I have. Turn the knobs, move the hand a little, whatever it takes to make it so.
Jeff Beck ruled with the JCM2000, though!
Seems to be doing pretty decent with a Pro Jr recently. Wonder if he's reading this thread and laughing a little?
I can use just about anything, but honestly the Blues series by Fender all sound like ass to me. Jr. is fine, but at even medium power amp volume it totally farts out and sounds unrefined. Not pleasantly unrefined - just horrible. The Deluxe is thin and whispy on normal gain, and the EQ is practically useless. The "more drive" section is painfully fuzzy. It sounds like a tube rectifier amp that is about to die from over-voltage or something. No clue how to describe it, but I do not like it. I haven't tried the 410 one, but if its anything like the Deluxe, I have my doubts.
I get the scoopy fender clean tone, but when you apply that to your drive channel it is truly awful. My Supersonic 22 is wonderful in this respect, as the clean channel is totally scooped, and the drive channel is beautifully mid pushed and marshall-ey.
5 is for the 50s
E is for the Deluxe within the fender amp range
3 is the iteration of the circuit
