    No pre-sets, no modeling, no silliness.

    Just Tone.

    5F4. It's the REAL deal.

    You can always drill a whole and add a blinking led light show.

    Seriously, probably one of the best amps ever.

    Will it break up as quick as a 5E3 Deluxe?

    You lucky dog! Those are magical amps. How does it compare with the Hullett?

    No, but once it breaks up, it's a sweet deal. I built it a year ago and I'm just amazed every time I fire it up. It's a scary good amp.

    Frank62: It's not that much bigger or heavier than the Hullett but it sure is louder. It's my outdoor gig amp. It's also on a fair amount of the record we made. the volume controls are even more interactive than on the Deluxe.

    Jeez, you're pretty insecure if you have to post a whole new thread to counter a modeling thread.

    Enjoy your amp. Try Ambien for the nightmares about modelers.

    ^BS, That is a real man's amp. Made in the day before metrosexual sissy amp modeling and footswitch tap dancing. A fine example of a timeless amp Pete!

    Was this a kit or did you source the parts yourself?

    I have a Victoria Super. I love it. It seems to have just the right amount of headroom--more than a Deluxe (which breaks up almost immediately), but not enought so that you can't get some good stuff happening at reasonable volume levels. It's light, portable, and the tone controls actually work too.

    Of course if you take Ambien, you'll go out smash all the modelers you can find and never remember about it the next day.

    I use pedals because some gigs make me have to, but I'm pretty happy with a guitar a cord and a Tweed.

    Hey Pete I get you and agree, but even the guy who has your gig (Rob McNelly) uses pedals! :dude

    I have a 1959 Super-Amp and a 1959 Bassman. Both are to die for and quite different from one another. Bassman is more "throaty" where the Super is a shrieking screamer. Had 'em both for 30 years. What more could a fella need, except for a matching champ!

    A reverb tank....
    Sweet set-up, I do believe you have the bases covered very well.

    Sorry fellas. My Brown Fender reverb unit is not in the pic because it is a reissue.

    I converted my 5F4 into a 5E7. As great as the amp was as a 5F4, it is even more so as a 5E7. This amp lets me hear the tones I had only imagined before. I will admit to needing some extra gain at the local blues jam -- that's the nature of the occasion. For that I plug my Tele into a Barber Silver LTD then into jumped channels with all knobs at 7 (beware: pot tapers vary!)

    I sourced the parts myself. Hoffman, JMI music and Mojo Music Supply.
