does a tweed Deluxe count as low watt or is it 10 W or less?
yes, I know! This is from circa 2003. If you look in the photographs in The Big Come Up, Dan used the Ampeg Gemini all over that record. I can't tell if it's a Gemini I or II from this pic but I think it's a I. When I was first searching for an Ampeg, I wanted a Gemini I or an early Reverberocket. The Little Jet's nice, but it'd be nice to jump up a size and find a Gemini with the 12" speaker. Not sure if these ever came with a 5y3GT in the rectifier. Don't have the ampeg book handy to say. Most the mid-late 60s amps have solid state rectifiers. I'm sure that 66 is solid state.The big 7591A amps like 'em too - I have a '66 Gemini II here for the summer...
Well. I just found the set and forget mix/repeat thing impractical for me.Why didn't you like it?
that's a good one...one thing about vintage gretsches, you can still get good ones for a decent price compared to other vintage axes (fender, Gibson)I need to stay out of guitar shops. A local shop had a 61 Gretsch 6120 single cut. Beautiful guitar. Loved it. Would prefer a double cut, and I didn't $4500 love it, but I loved it. Darn Gretsch gas returns.
Finally getting around to posting in Thrice Revisited...
Just wondering if anyone here is using a Dr. Z amp. I took a Carmen Ghia head in partial trade on another amp a few weeks ago and the thing is loaded with alt.c approved goodness. Takes pedals like nobody's business too. A pretty loud 18 watter and though not renowned for clean headroom, you can coax a decent amount with the right approach. I actually didn't expect to like it so much, having owned a Z many moons ago that left me cold, but now have a 6V6 based Z-28 on the way to pair with the Ghia in an A/B setup.
