    My band Plastic Orange just got done recording our new EP.
    These clips are full band, but some of the intros are just my guitar.

    Here is my setup:
    Fender Telecaster Deluxe RI
    Ibanez Universe UV777GR

    Barber Silver LTD/Barber DDSS/Line6 Echo Park/Peterson Strobostomp/Line6 Verbzilla - Fargen Blackbird 6L6 40watt Combo

    I keep the Blackbird clean, but loud, and use the LTD for a little grit then goose it with the DDSS.

    myspace squashes things pretty bad, but you can get the idea. The Blackbird gives me a really rich organic blackface sound and takes to pedals very well.

    Ben Fargen is THE MAN!!

    I picked up a Blackbird 40 combo recently and it is fantastic. Great Fender tones that are very warm and buttery. The thing I really love is how the amp feels. Lots of things are described as responsive and touch sensitive, this amp is the first one I have owned that really is those things. And my Tim sounds killer with it too.

    you've hit it spot on. Warm, buttery, very responsive to touch.

    I love how I can barely massage the strings and it's delicate as a flower petal.... then dig in deep and it will roar like a lion.

    Yup, that's the Blackbird. The other cool thing is how the treble control can take the amp form that warm, buttery tone to more bright and sparkley if you want. I also love the reverb, less splashy than the traditional Fender BF. I find it easier to dial in just the right amount whereas the Fender reverb tends to go from off to too much very quickly.
