    Howzat guys
    You can always rely on an amp clip from me every now and again.
    I had good help this time Cyber jamming with Forummite Blackstratblues on his JCM800.
    His setup .....Lonestar strat into Jcm800 with an sd-1 used as a boost
    My setup ....Gibson LP std into koch multitone 3rd channel into Bogner 2x12 OS(v30s)
    That's it .......a nice reflection of what the 2 amps sound like.

    And for the record so you guys know who did what and what amp sounds like what:

    0 to 46s BSB
    47 to 1:11 Rick
    1:12 to 1:27 BSB
    1:28 to 1:42 Rick
    1:43 to 1:58 BSB
    1:59 to 2:13 Rick
    2:14 to 2:22 BSB
    2:23 to 2:30 Rick
    2:31 to 3:04 BSB
    3:05 to 3:40 Rick
    3:41 to 3:55 BSB
    3:56 to 4:10 Rick
    4:11 to END BSB and Rick

    Here's the link:

    Enjoy

    Wow!!!!

    Fantastic stuff you guys. Very difficult to pick a favorite tone. I like both a lot but prefer BSB Marshall tone a little better. However, Rick's part from 1:59 to 2:13 was nothing short of breathtaking.

    You guys need to put together a tour. I would definately pay to see you guys live.

    Jim

    P.S. Would love to hear your Budda 80 on that clip

    Thanks alot Jim

    The Marshall tone does seem fatter and maybe a bit louder.........it's a great tone.

    I've got the koch always ready to go for recording ........and the Budda sd80 always ready to go whe I go gigging........so it's always extra work to do the other way round.
    I would imagine the Budda sounding a little fuller in the lower
    mids but not that much different.

    Cheers man

    Awesome clip Ricker.I love the Budda clips as well.I was considering getting a 50 watt Koch Twintone but I heard the Jensens they use are harsh.I was also interested in the new super drive 45 watter.I was concerned that the cleans in the Budda might not be punchy enough for some of my funk or chicken picken stuff.But apparently the new Budda is switchable from S.S to tube rectifier.I was also wondering what jcm 800 that was and what kind of cab/speaker config.

    Great stuff!

    That was one of the more enjoyable clips I've heard around the net.

    I'm also curious about the JCM800 info & cab type used.

    Is that 45watter finally gonna hit production??
    They been talking about that for along time now.
    Sounds like a cool amp.
    That's what I found with the sd30.........great amp but up at gig volumes wasn't as punchy as I needed.
    The 80 .....well that solves that problem........maybe the 45 with the ss will be fine.........you'll have to try it.....or get an 80 and a hotplate...he he he

    I'm not sure which 800 it is.........Warren is on the other side of the world so I'll have to ask him............I know he miked up a v30 speaker........I can find out

    If I had to choose between my sd80 or koch .....I'd take the budda ........it's an easy decision.

    Thanks for listening
    Rick

    Thanks man
    It's hard to call without hearing them in person........I know just a small movement in mic placement can give your amp a whole new voicing.

    Oh man, what great playing and tone!!! I find myself listening to this clip over and over. I could easily live with either tone (desert island choice) and I could even more easily live with your (both of your) choppage, something that sadly is not gonna happen for me this lifetime...... :rolleyes: Oh well, at least I can listen to you guys and cop some inspiration :)
