Hahahaha gotcha still have not

but a 100 watt Ceriatone OTS was enjoyed through a 8x12 full stack today.

Yep there is one in my future.

just does something different than my Plexi or Fenders. kinda a mix..,,,,,...... hard to explain.


best I can come to is clean with much easier sustain. Does not break up easy but does sustain easier.

OK here it is it sounds like an amp cranked up loud but it is not breaking up like it usually would..

worth the chance to experience if ya get a chance

I want one now but I will stay happy with my Plexi for now

I need a pool table for the new house first and maybe a swimming pool as well

and an analog board etc....


Title changed. The OTS was still a very enlightening amp.

So, a Ceriatone did that for you? Hmm, interesting. Loud and clean with easier sustain.. Sounds like Nik got some part of the circuitry right!

It was a very cool sound. It was distinct and new to my ears.

Almost all guitar players covet clear tone with endless sustain. This is part of why gain seems to be a point of context, the only problem is you get sustain, but the tone gain be mashed up and in distinct. When I think of this being done the best example I can think of is Jeff Beck and the song "Going Down". On this track the tone is crystal clear yet the guitar feedbacks at will and has endless sustain. Pretty sure it had to be crushing volumes.

Shouldn't have deceived. After I realized the bluff, I couldn't care less about what you have to say.
I'm curious what you call referring a Super Champ as a Rivera if not deceptive. Should we all not care what you have to say now too? Or what that just really silly of you to say in the first place? We are a forgiving bunch here.

He means (or at least I hope he does) a "Rivera- era" Fender Super Champ which were made from 1982-1984 and were the last hand wired amps made by Fender until recently. That's to differentiate it from the far more common, newer Super Champ XDs which a lot of people around here think are the same thing but they are not even close.

Well no duh. I'm slagging him for calling the OP deceptive for something equally benign.

If you say so, but I see a big difference between the two. Calling a Ceriatone a Dumble is not same thing as calling a Rivera-era Super Champ a "Rivera" Super Champ...Paul designed that amp and as far as I know Nic has never even met Mr Dumble.

He's not calling a Ceriatone a Dumble. In fact, his first post say he still hasn't.

Read the title. "never played a Dumble till (sic) today". If that isn't misleading, I don't know what is. Anyway, I'm done here. Enjoy reading about some amp he still hasn't played...

"Mr. Dumble".....is there some kind of hobbit-fetish man-crush going on here?


......Because I want in on that!

The fake out Dumble reference makes things murky. I guess the point was to put in some irresistible lead in to get people to read about the Ceriatone who might otherwise ignore it. It just rubs some folks the wrong way.

You only have so many "characters" to post your gear, so I made contractions, ie Gbsn instead of Gibson. It's an 80's Fender Super Champ with the Rivera design. Did you really not know that? If not, sorry. I'm not trying anything. There are many Super Champs that do/did not have Rivera's input.

This doesn't really matter to me and now I maybe wish I hadn't said anything. But I doubt that you thought he hadn't played a Dumble when you read the title. Either way, it's likely we'd all be fine if we were face to face.
