Hey i appreciate the fact that you would take the time and point out that i'm not going to get the same sound from this amp. That says a good deal about you and your company. If it's not inappropriate to do so, can i ask you if you know of any other amps that ARE similar in circuitry to my amp? Mine is one of the New "hand made" (probably by some middle age woman with a soldering gun lol) models they started making a couple years ago, and i assume they're similar to the older ones, but honestly i know absolutely nothing about circuits and all that.CCS.
The Gibson and the Rebel are nothing alike in circuit design or sound so that is not going to work.... The Gibson amps were pretty unique in the way they did things back then and consequently have their own sort of sound.
I had been playing this amp through a Gibson VOS R0, which I had dropped Sheptone alnico 5 pickups into. The neck pickup is on the dark side, and the bridge pickup bites without an abrasive brightness.I thought about that earlier today. I went up to church and played for about 5 hours and adjusted everything a pretty good amount, and still couldn't find a tone i was happy with. I did like the tone better through my V30 Traynor Cab rather than the Egnater 1x12. I got somewhat in the vicinity of what i'm looking for, but it all still seemed too........not even sure......bright, maybe.
I got mine as well as a single page talking about the tube mix sweet spot and about the noise associated with the wattage knob was normal. Which reminds me the packaging was very nice on these two items and the little gig bag for the head is just too cool.http://www.egnateramps.com/manuals/Rebel20IM.pdf
Not sure if you guys/girls are receiving the owners manual when you buy your amp. GC has a habit of forgetting to include those. There are some suggesting settings just for a staring point and other good info. You can download it at the link above.
I used the two 15% coupons GC sent me in an email last week to get the head, 1x12 cab and a Line 6 JM4 Looper on Black Friday.Jarrett, Can I ask where you got it for $509?
