I'm thinking about adding a SR to my rig and wondering if there are any boutique amp companies making 66 SR clones, ptp handwired, decent NOS valves and decent speakers etc...
Allen, Chicago Bluesbox, Blueverb. I'm sure there are more. Thing is, you can get a used Silverface for about $600. Stick a pedal in fromt of it, and it's pretty hard to beat.
I've been thinking about this allen old flame for a while, but there really aren't many clips I can find on the net. There are a few pretty clean clips, but nothing pure pure clean with nice reverb ,, it'd be nice to hear how this amp takes pedals as well..Be sure to check out Allen Amplification's offerings.
I have an older Old Flame and a brand new one. David is actually using Rajun Cajun's in his new ones and I love the way they sound. Not overly bright but very punchy. The older amp has Allen's own speakers which are not as powerful but are very warm and balanced. Running them both together is quite a treat. The Old Flame will certainly fit your needs.Here's a couple of Utube clips of Steve Freund playing through his Old Flame 2x10 combo:
You can't see the amp, but I was at this Jam and he is definitely playing through an Old Flame.
Old Flame + Tube Screamer will most definitely get you into SRV territory. Not sure about the speakers, but Stevie used JBL's in his SR so probably using for fairly bright, high-powered speakers is the way to go. Allen is using Eminence Copperheads so this may be a good choice. In any case, Old Flames are GREAT amps. Loud and punchy. Dial up the 'Raw' knob and you are in Tweed territory
Jack Zucker has a bunch of youtube clips that were done with an Old Flame head. You could ask him (jzucker here) specifically which ones, if the descriptions aren't clear. Some clips are Axe-FX, some are Old Flame.I've been thinking about this allen old flame for a while, but there really aren't many clips I can find on the net.
