I haven't played enough vintage amps to form any sort of objective opinion so thought to ask here. I just bought an almost 50 year old Fender Concert amp for my brother...he's not on the internet and he agreed to let me keep and play it for a month or so in exchange. He may not actually get it after receiving it yesterday Great tone, warmth, sparkle but a little too much low-level background noise for my tastes (I could live with it if needed). Also a great bouncy feel to the amp. It has this transparent tone without any sort of hardness or harshness.....very, very nice. Personally I want that tone and feel but also wouldn't mind something which wasn't 50 years old - reliablity issues. Am I going to have to look for vintage amps to give me what I want? Is it possible to build a new amp with that warmth and organic feel...or is that something which comes with age and having been played a lot. I'm looking for amazing cleans at a lower than gigging level. Takes pedals well and sounds big, full and lush.....rings with lots of character. I've had: Bogner Shiva, Metropolis - Swart AST, Fuchs OD30, Victoria Deluxe, Fender modded Tweed Super, '57 Twin Re-issue, Boogie Lonestar, MK 4, F50. All of these amps sounded good - the tweed super was stellar but didn't take pedals that well. Most of these amps needed to be turned up to sound great and even then there was a certain amount of hardness present. So should I tell my brother to go find something else as I'm keeping this one warts and all....or given the right components, can a new amp be created which possess this vintage warmth and feel? You opinions and experience are appreciated.
