    Fantastic sounding amp, no doubt about it! I love the bloom underneath the tremolo- wow!

    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.

    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. :nuts :bong :crazy :nuts :bong :crazy

    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....

    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.

    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. :drink It's a cool amp, no doubt, but this holiday season give some respect to Leo Fender. I think he's earned it.
