    Pardon the repost if you've already seen this one on HCfx or BAM.


    I picked up this Lovepedal 1/2 watt classic off HCfx last week and I've been having a great time with it the last couple of days playing it through a 1 x 10 cab with a Weber blue-pup.

    I wanted to hear it with some reverb, so I took a little trip yesterday:

    To me, the whole point of the half-watter is it's portability. No EQ on the amp? No problem, just find the right room for the job...

    If eq seems really nescesary, the Antelope, Morning Dew eq works very well with the 1/2 watter as do most of my other pedals. This little amp is no novelty. I can see a lot of cool uses for it in the future.

    Sean done did good!:thu:


    An important note: The type of batteries, (Alkaline/ non-Alkaline) you use will make a noticeable difference in tone and headroom. It is definately worth experimenting with. Clip 1 (tunnel) is non-Alk. Clip 2 (bath) is using Alkaline batteries.

    cheers.

    Could we have an Epiphone Valve Junior Head (5 watts, EL84, 99 USD!) in a tunnel as well? :dude

    edit: Just realised that there´ll be no power for the amp... A soundclip of the Valve Head JR would be nice though! Anyone!?

    I just wanted to say these video's liberated me of some cash to get a 1/2 watt. Great videos, at least the money went to a TGPer. I am really digging the 1/2 watt, so its all good.

    The tunnel one is still my favorite video of yours that you have posted here and I have certainly liked all the others I have seen. I think the combination of the great spontaneous playing added percussion, really dope tunnel verb and then the three people busting through the sunlight add up to create a seriously cool vibe.

    I can't believe those people didn't say anything to you. How often do you find someone jamming in a tunnel fer cryin' out loud?

    That clip brought a smile to my face. Thank you for making my day!

    Sweet tone man! And playing.
    As a kid, I used to take my 5 watt Silvertone class A tube amp, and '52 LesPaul into my families large, all concrete garage and play for hours. It had the most incredible reverb! make the ECM folks envious :)

    To this day, I feel a great sence of loss if I don't play with some smooth 'verb goin' on. (prefer stereo) My old Lexicon never fails to make me smile
