Whatch Think Tone Monsters?

Found it on Youtube. Very nice tone. very nice indeed.
Hit the "Watch on Youtube" video on the center of the screen.
Fantastic sounding amp, no doubt about it! I love the bloom underneath the tremolo- wow!
i gave it a minute.........nothing to hear for me in there.....in any amount of uber regard.
Me too. That tr-tr-tr-tr-em-em-em-em-el-el-el-el-o-o-o-o killed the whole thing for me.
Try watching the entire video. Let it grow on you for a while.
I really luv this baby especially towards the end.
Now if Fender could have ever made an amp like that.............oh boy...
Not hearing anything special in that clip. I think the Tone King Meteor II I owned a few years back sounded much better and had a better tremolo.
As they say, tone is subjective. For me, I've heard better tones from $300 solid state amps. Not sure what "great tones" everyone else seems to be hearing that I'm not.
Wow...I always have been and probably always will be a Marshall guy, never any interest in the whole dumble mystique, but that is the best sounding dumble clip i have ever heard.
The more impressive aspects of that amp are brought out more in the last half of the clip.
I personally think the amp is awesome, although i don't know if I could gig with it, doesn't really suit my style....
Sounds nice. I will have to say though..outside of the trem..it sounsd kind of like my Fuchs ODS.
Guys.......please note this was built around 1979. Carr and many other amp builders were still eating ice cream with mommy at the time.....some were not even a wet dream yet...........
and through a set of p90's........................
I think it smokes. You could do a lot with an amp like that.
You need to spend just a bit more time with gear...........you must go through stuff like there is no tomorrow.....take the time with gear.....no rush....its a 5 minute video.......
Some nice tones there, although he seems fixated on the tremolo, which I could have done with less-of...lol. Sure sounds very live and on the edge of running away, which is cool. I suspect some of the compression is camera, some the amp being pushed. Nice though...
You're kidding, right?
Leo had built entire lines of great amps, by the time Howie was eating ice cream with Mommy. It's a cool amp, no doubt, but this holiday season give some respect to Leo Fender. I think he's earned it.
