So, as much as I love vintage Fender, Vox and Marshall amps, I have always had a soft spot for total crap.. the kind of pawn shop rigs I cut my teeth on. When I was a teenager, I'd go over to my friend's house to jam... his dad had a Country Gentleman ( w/ flatwounds) and a little Marlboro brand combo amp. I liked this rig a lot then but had no clue what to do with a Bigsby equipped hollowbody at the time. Several years back, I saw a Marlboro head about to end on Ebay and sniped it for $12.50. It works perfectly and I've probably played half a dozen little gigs with it as it's loud, tiny and shockingly warm/neutral in tone... perfect pedal amp. Here's a shot of it on top of a little Mojotone 1X12 cab. It lives in my basement studio, near the couch and TV and I play along to concert DVD's and CD's with it mostly. It's a totally dry, clean tone on it's own so I recently bought a little Korg multi effect for it (see it in the photo) for $39 from MF. My thinking was that the Korg was something I wouldnt want to use in any other context and it could always live down with the Marlboro rig. Well, it sounds pretty damned good. It does pretty impressive Fender and Vox emulations, very good delay, trem and reverb effects and is quiet. Takes pedals well, too. Last week, an old friend got in touch from the west coast and asked if I would add some guitar tracks to a demo project he's working on. He sent over an mp3 mix and I overdubbed a couple of guitar tracks, which I exported, zipped and uploaded to an ftp site for him to retrieve. Of course, I used the lowly Marlboro/Korg rig. I got some pretty ripping amp tones here... It's a 335 copy- Rangemaster clone- Korg set for a Vox model- Marlboro head on 1.5-Mojo cab (which has a p.o.s. 90's Fender branded Eminence 12)-SM57. Here's a mono mp3 mix with a quick cut from the intro to an outro solo section with the lead mixed too hot. http://www.soundclick.com/util/getplayer.m3u?id=6232875&q=hi Not bad for an all digital/SS/ $75 dollar rig.
