I love being served such a delectable slice of history.Here's mine. It's a 1624 from (IIRC) '62. When I bought it, it was 100% original, all the way down to original tubes (or at least, period correct and old - someone may have replaced them three or four decades ago). I made two mods: a three-prong plug, and a speaker interconnect so I could run it into different speaker cabinets.
Cranked, it sounds really good; much, much better into a 4 x 12 than into its own speaker. I have to be honest - I prefer my Fenders and Marshalls. It looks absolutely killer and occupies pride-of-place in my studio.
What a killer rig. You're fortunate to have found something so incredibly nice.Just picked up this used 1690T Coronado clone by Dirty Girl from Sound Pure. Packed with a Weber Alnico 10" 10A125 and a 10A125-O (the latter for earlier breakup).
I'm in love.
Here's a couple of mine! I finished a supro inspired build a couple months ago, I should make a video of that one too, it came out great!
Supros are fantastic, I end up using them all the time when recording. They sit in a mix well or stand out just perfectly depending on what you're doing
