    Stunning playing Mr. D'Aloia! Do you remember your settings on the Blackverb and what speaker was in the cab?

    Dang! Sounds marvelous, in all the various modes. Chuck is a master pure and simple. Stunning in general.

    Yeah, actually thats my amp. I sent it to Henry for a bit of reworking and he had Chuck burn it in and demo it. I'm playing it right now, it's got Chuck mojo workin in it, it's a great great amp. Instrument.
    I got it back from Henry yesterday played it at a gig last night and it was inspiring and just a whole lotta fun, I found myself laughing quite alot.
    I highly recommend Redplate ampifiers and of course Henry is a great guy, completely accommodating and an amp designer who really cares about helping to make better music.

    Howdy folks, I'll join in again on this one. I haven't posted in many moons.

    I have an update on my Blues Machine. It was built last Spring, wired by the "new guy" and there have been some spooky noise problems. Henry had me send it back twice, Keith did major rework twice. Henry finally replaced the entire chassis with one Keith built from the ground up. The new guy is now the Gone Guy.

    I'm a happy guy, but more importantly Henry is a stand up guy. He stands behind his products 110%. And Keith does beautiful work.

    I made it a priority to spend some of my limited NAMM time over at the "Club" in the Redplate room. I wanted to finally meet Henry and Keith in person. There was some furious jamming going on, and Chuck D was wailing, but I couldn't linger.

    Bottom line: Redplates are the Grail. Henry and Keith are the best!

    Carry on,

    Ken

    Agreed completely,
    The fact is my power transformer burnt up, probably due to user error on my part. Regardless I sent it to RP and Henry replaced the PT and had a none other than Chuck D. put it through it's paces.
    Incidentally my amp was built by Keith and aside from my own doings has been rock solid dependable and incredible tone and performance and has never let me down on a gig tonewise or otherwise. In fact it has far surpassed my expectations and continues to.
    I don't post much but I figured I had to on this one. And thats all I have to say about that.

    I'm thinking about replacing my Tweedyverb with a Blues Machine for more versatility and to get a master volume. About a $600 difference. Opinions or comparisons welcomed.

    I was one of the guys in the early afternoon (with LeonC and Dana Olsen) at the Ayres Hotel club mtg.
    I played the Tweedy Verb, and later listened to Chuck do his thing on his sig 112 combo.
    The Tweedy Verb (with a most excellent Tele) sounded fabulous and felt fabulous to me. The sonic images of both combos were huge, considereing their Champ-like size. I also dug the Hermida Reverb pedal too. Very nice, and a good match with the RedPlates.

    I'm strongly considering getting one of these beauties.

    A while back I mentioned that I was going to do some experimenting/comparison of running a short cable in the loop on my BV versus nothing in the loop.

    Has anyone else tried this? Notice anything different?

    I'm going to get more serious about it tonight by putting a keeley looper on there so that I can switch the connection in and out on the fly to get a better idea of what it may or may not be doing.

    I've read comments relative to other amps with loops and there seems to be a lot of support for having a cable in the loop, some even recommend a higher capacitance cable.
