It's your eyes, sir, that I question.
Haa!! You almost made me spill my cork sniffy cognac!!
I have heard my share of JTM 45's in my day, but.........
I am actually channeling ERIC
Eric, Vaughn......... Well he was this kid in my second grade class........
I'm gonna keep on playing.
I dunno what Bad Bob does with these amps but,
I am inspired!
Sue's tolex work............. Pure art.............. Utterly stunning work. I am serious. Stunning. M.E.
Bob is a great guy and makes a fine amp for sure, glad to hear more noise about him and his amps. I had the priviledge to test drive his EL-34 Jester aka Ampzilla, and it is a beast of an amp. We did some sound clips an I know one of them is on his website. Mrs. Bob is badass with the tolex fo sho!!
I have the Reinhardt Jester HG (high gain), and it's a butt kickin' amp for sure. It does everything from Sam and Dave all the way up to Whitesnake.
The amps vital statistics are:
*50 watt, EL34's
*Tube rectified (GZ34)
*footsitchable gain from basic hotrodded Marshall to insane. It also has trim pots for each level of gain.
*Missus Reinhardt, (Sue) even made the head box in purple with gold string trim.
I love my new amp! I took it to band practice last week and smoked a boosted JCM 800, 50 watter. It was proudest moment of my guitar playing existance.
That is freakin' killer looking! Damn!
Pic's coming soon.............
Utterly gorgeous cleans!! I have yet to delve into the drive characteristics of this amp too deeply, but I am loving it thus far. M.E.
Mmmmm........I love orange popsickles!!
how does the reinhardt compare to a germino?
Glad you're enjoying the amp!
Are you playing it with your new avatar cab?
I absolutely LOVE the amp!
I just received a Mullard GZ-34 Recto tube and I placed a Telefunken aX7 in place of the ecc81 that was in the PI position. I have just ordered a pair of ribbed plate Tele's for the other preamp positions.
Regarding the Avatar Premium w/ Blues..............
Fedex lost track of my package. ARRGH!!!!!
They did call me this morning and told me that they located it in Sacramento. I will be seeing it on Thursday. Not bad since I was told to expect it on 12/23!
I am so pleased with the amp! Thank you again for selling it to me for such a fair price! It was a pleasure meeting you.
I will post a report when I get the cabinet.
I have a rehearsal tomorrow afternoon with my ambient project, I am looking forward to letting this amp breathe a bit! M.E.
So you're saying that this is a fantastic alternative to the normal Marshall?
Per the recent 'Why shouldn't I buy a Marshall RI?'
Looks like some of them are set up for different channels, and an added boost?
