On the cheap-Fender Frontman 212.
I don't think I have ever seen one of those before.
I've consideed one of those pedals. I have not seen one in awhile.
Well you all have given some great suggestions. If the tone capsule I ordered does'nt do the trick then I will explore some of the suggestions given. Thanks!
Lab Series L5 can do the twin thing and a lot more... unfortunately they are getting harder to find used at reasonable prices, particularly with all of their features working and parts intact.
I have a V1 Mustang. BEAUTIFUL Fender cleans. Just gotta do some dialing.
In the late 60s Fender essentially did solid state versions of their entire basic amp line.
The "common knowledge" is that they had assembly errors or problems, and many blew up early on. They certainly didn't grab the market. I've seen a few here and there over the years. They sound more "tube-like" than later, or modern solid state amps, at least until you drive them hard. The sleeper/winner in the line is the solid state version of the outboard reverb unit. I have one that I kept, and sold my reissue brown tank.
I would love to find one,but Im sure above what I want to pay. If Im not mistaken BB King played those amps for awhile.
I like your playing too, and with respect...but that sounds absolutely nothing like a Super Reverb.
the Joyo Clean Glass and the Joyo American Sound are also perfect for getting the Fender tone...great pedals
MIJ PEARL amps are transistor versions of fenders with a great clean tone.The reverb sucks on the Pearl's though. For REAL nice spring Reverb look for a Yamaha G100 II or Randall Commander !
It is not exactly solid state but my Cube 60 on the black panel model got close enough for me to use it live. A lot. At the time I was gigging it, I owned a BFSR, a SF Vibrolux, a SFDR and a SF Twin Reverb. I had the chance to check it out against the real thing and it was close enough. Perfect? Exactly the same? No but then my Twin didn't sound like my Super Reverb, my Vlux didn't sound like Deluxe etc. And the Cube has a master volume which meant I could dial in a little lower volume loud amp response that was often missing with the NMV Fenders. At the stage volumes I was working.
I have a Roland Blues Cube now,I just ordered a tone capsule for it,hoping that it gives me the sound Im looking for.
Boss discontinued both the FDR and Bassman pedals a couple of years ago.
FWIW, when played clean or nearly clean, the response of the Quilters that I've played has been significantly more compressed and less dynamic than a blackface Fender.
Well I got my UBTC for my Blues Cube amp. I like it,but I will definetly have to dial it in to the way I want it. Its like a whole different amp for sure. So the verdict is still out if its what I am looking for.
Fender just announced solid state deluxe and twin. Check Andertons video watched today sound really good until they turned them up all the way but who does that anyway
Interesting. I sprung for the Mesa Mk V for the bell clean headroom tones, and sometimes go with an Aviator head as an option. [..same speakers]
Seems there are so many variations one night one stage to the next, not sure I've pick up on that [re the Quilter].
What about the new One Control amp ?
.........or this :
