    Okay, you asked for a clip of the Heritage Colonial, but clean.

    Here you go.

    Sorry I wasn't feeling more creative, but it's a great tune. Turn it up! :dude

    Used a bunch of guitars on this:

    Main rhythm guitar - Strat w/Wagner SRs
    Chrippy rhythm guitar - DeArmont M77-t
    Head (1st verse) - DeArmond
    Solo (first part) - Strat
    Solo (2nd part, last verse and out) - Les Paul w/Wagner Filmores

    Played the Colonial through a 1x12 /13 cab (GREAT freekin cab!) with a 65W Weber Blue Dog (alnico).

    Jeff, I know you'll ask, heheh, so here were my settings:

    Tube rectified
    Mood: 1
    Pres: 2.5
    Bass: 2.5
    Mid: 1
    Treble: 7
    Sw1: US
    Vol1: 2
    Vol2: 2
    Sw2: US

    Just got to play this amp with live musicians for the first time. Played through my 1x12 /13 cab with a 65w Weber blue dog. Sounded fantastic; cut through like nobody's bidness. Just set it clean, played my Strat and Tele and a couple pedals.

    "cut through"? how many of them were there?
    say, i'm curious about that Weber for my Heritage cab...wondering how it would go with the new Celestion Gold...
    is the Weber very Blue-like?

    :cool:

    There were two guitars, bass and drums. I think the biggest reason that the Heritage cut through so well was that I was playing it pretty clean. Even down around 2, there's plenty of volume, for my purposes...

    Jeff, the Weber Blue Dogs that I have are 65W speakers that I asked Ted to make special, about 3 years ago. I'm not sure how much they sound like other Blue Dogs, but IMO, they don't sound that much like real Cele Blues, not quite as punchy with a bit less top-end. They probably sound more like Blues than anything else, but...I've still not heard anything the is a dead nutz ringer for a real Blue. The Cele Golds are a little closer, IMO.

    That is pretty awesome, nice cleans btw on that amp too!
    Great playing. I eh might've pushed the Solo volume up a little bit in the mix to make it stand out a bit more? oh well that is just being picky I guess (plus it is a personal taste thing I imagine)

    i'll bet i could do most gigs w/the vols @ 1/4 or less, then a pedal for singery when wanted. cab choice makes all the diff, but even at low vol, it sounds rich...

    ah, was wondering, knew he did 50watters.

    the stock E34Ls are great, but next i gotta get some 5881s and really go after that Bassman/JTM sound, then tweak & flip & locate that something original in there. for me the key is in the MOOD & mids, but it was neat to use your settings for something i'd never think to try - thanks, LC

    :cool:

    Absolutely. When I do gig this bad boy, I'm certain I won't need any more volume than 2 or 2.5. Per PC's suggestion, I'm about to try some "Winged C" 6L6GCs. I'll let you know how that works out. Want to try some 6CA7s too.

    I have the same heavy cone Weber Blue Dog that they did for me a few years ago. One of my favorites.
    Nice Job Leon!
    Its great to see the Colonial finally get some props around here.
    I've been singing its praises on mostly deaf ears for nearly 2 years now.
    The ONLY reason I didn't go for one was that its mostly too loud for me to run it for they kinds of things I do.

    I'm running my Colonial with a mini-MASS in parallel with my cab. One 8ohm output to my 16 ohm cab, the other to the MM set to 16ohms.

    Drops the volume to a very reasonable (stage) level.

    Note: the MM must be set to a fixed spot on the dial (3.9 in my case). Otherwise it's not the correct ohmage.

    Very nice track, excellent playing...all the guitars sound great, but especially the LP w/Filmores.

    Nice work, Leon!
    Cleanly done...my cup of joe!
    I think a pedal steel or a fiddle would add some more nice country fried taste to this tune!
