I want a small, hand-wired amp head to run with my celestion blue cab. I love the pure 60's jangle, sparkle, swirl sound as heard on early Beatles stuff. i don't want anything "VOX-ish" - I have other amps for that. i want pure old-school VOX tone.
Maybe check out Goodsell's new GC-12. It's an Ef86 based preamp that Richard describes as having a very authentic 1964 ac30 tone. All hand wired ptp of course. Comes with a WGS Alnico black & blue speaker. It's a fantastic low wattage amp.
I recommend watching the Premier Guitar Champions of Chime Shootout videos. Nicely done, and showcase alot of great amps. IMO, the Fargen Duo-Classic wins hands down, but that is me. Ben Fargen does have a great touch with building Voxy type amps. I have a Custom AC15 he built and LOVE it.
