    Lord help me. I have the fever bad for a 65 amp. I am this close (fingers held 1/8 inch apart) to doing the unthinkable - posting ads for my Flexi head and THD 2x12 cab. For the style of music I play/enjoy (Jayhwaks, Wilco, Son Volt, Uncle Tupelo, etc), the 65 seems to be the ideal amp.

    I forgot how wicked GAS can be. Damn!!

    True.... the only problem is that they are all enablers. I don't think anyone here will talk me down. :)

    Man, I started jonesing for one after hearing it over the PHONE. You're in trouble. I can tell you now, nothing else will satisfy you til you have your very own :D

    You won't be disappointed. They are worth every thin, serrated dime of the cost.

    Hey CG,

    I like all of those bands and play in that style. I say get the London. I did and it has replaced my DC-30 as my favorite amp. Just make sure you get the cab to go with it.

    Ideal indeed. Just a great sounding amp.
    PSA-Stu at Fatsound has a used combo that's "as new"-save a few bucks and roll.

    Cg,

    I've played through that amp and the bands you list are ideal for what that amp will pump out. Get one I think you will be most happy.

    Make sure you get a Framptone or a Tonebone Switchbone to go with it. As stellar as the two channels of the 65 London are alone? Combined they are INSANE!! :eek:

    But they're out of phase, so you have to get an A/B/Y that lets you flip the phase on the second channel.

    It sounds so good, Dan and Peter should include one of these pedals as standard equipment for the amp.
     
  14. very cool amps, George at metroamps makes their boards for them and they look killer. Switchfoot is using them now too, seems they work for more than just classic rock tones.
