I think one of the things that really helps with the low resale is that they are an amp that someone that hasn't been playing for a long time most likely won't appreciate. I remember playing one about ten years ago and thought it was dull and hard to play. Flash forward to playing twenty plus years and things like touch sensitivity and dynamics are ALL I care about in tone anymore. The Budda's give me what I put into them (some days that's not great) and always leave me smiling.Budda amps are, and have been for quite some time, great values for the money (used), which sure I'd rather my collection be worth double what I paid but I like that one of my favorite amps is so accessible for those willing to try one out.
The feel of these amps is not something many amps offer. Much more intentional/easy to control feel (compression, sag, etc.)
To think I posted my Dual Stage for sale on TGP once...man, I am glad no one was interested! It's mostly Superdrive 30 for me but occasional time with the Dual Stage, Stringmaster, SD80 etc. is always great. I include the V40 in that too though I believe it is slightly different than Jeff had originally intended.
Removing the reverb driver tube will make the amp somewhat punchier and less compressed, but you will obviously disable the reverb effect. It is safe to operate it this way according to Jeff Bober when I asked the same question.
The above pertains to original Verbmasters, not current production.
That said, an original Verbmaster sounds uniquely different when compared to an original Twinmaster (I have not played current production versions). They are similar, but the Twinmaster is more immediate, responsive, and seems to have more gain. The Verbmaster is a bit softer and more compressed (kind of like a Tweed Fender) but still screams aggressive bloody murder when cranked up in the High Gain input. The VM is not worse than the TM. Just a different flavor of Budda tone. I have both and they're both awesome.
I dont know if peavey changed anything but :What are the Budda 4x12 cabs like? Are they any good and are there any differences between older and newer builds?
I can't speak to the 4x12, but I have the 2x12 and the specs and description above sound pretty similar.I dont know if peavey changed anything but :
Fixed horizontal divider between the top and bottom pairs of speakers
Mid cut in a band setting, tight, punchy, good guitar range low end, not flabby.
Little more narrow than typical marshall cab but deeper if i recall correctly.
They did variations like 2x10/2x12 or 2x10/1x15 as well - those were channel assignable or just switchable with Lead Link.
That wouldn't have any negative effect at all, I use a boost pedal all the time without any issues period.Anyone using a boost pedal through the loop of a budda without any issues? I had a used SD30 series2,that I had to send back as it couldn't last a 45 minute set without blowing a fuse. I'd like to try a new SD45 but worried it may have been using a boost in the loop that caused the problem.
I use a Boss 7-band EQ pedal thru the loop that I use for a clean boost.Anyone using a boost pedal through the loop of a budda without any issues?
