    Such a fun amp! I'm using an Edwards LP with Righteous Sound pickups. That amp is loud!!!! However, I am able to tame it if I use the other low input with an overdrive pedal (and 5751 in V1).

    Amp details: Marstran tranformers, Sozo caps, made-in-England G12M greenbacks, carbon comp blah blah (just repeating what I heard from my amp tech).

    Hope you like it as much as I do!



    EDIT - I am aware of the misspelling :-(

    Sounds very nice! I would like to get a good one like yours.

    I got a JTM45 RI recently and I sold it after I got my head around it, it was PCB, so since I got the basic idea I need to get a good handwired one. I made a video about a week ago I posted it in this section.

    You nailed some classic tones there, thanks for posting! What kind of tubes are you running in it?

    Love the tones in this video! FWIW, it sounds very much like my early 90s BB, which I returned to original spec filter values, disconnected trem and threw in some alnico speakers. Love me some BB!

    Thanks for posting.

    I threw the GoldLions in mine as well! Anyone who says KT66s won't fit in the 9" early 90s reissues has never tried it!

    That's what I typed first and changed it. Need to brush up on my Crowes. Great demo.
