Just our of curiosity. I would imagine it to sound like either a Bassman or a LP Twin. Close?
Well, I would say it's closer to the Bassman, but the Galaxie has it's own thing going on. You can probably find some sound clips at the Dr Z forum.
I thought it was supposed to be based loosely on the tweed super...I thought so anyhow.
I'ts definitely tweedy!
As Brad Paisley put it "it's a great tweed sound but it ain't no country amp"
The tweed side can get nice overdrive as you inch up the volume.
Hmmm... I didn't think tweed Supers had that much power. Weren't they a bit lower than 40 watts?
The narrow panel tweed Super and Bandmaster (same basic circuit, different speaker configs) from the latter half of the 50s are usually rated at around 30-35 watts. The earlier cathode-biased Supers would probably be only about 20 watts or so.
