Say, having 2 6L6 in SE mode, maybe 20+ watts?
And if you have one, what's it like?
THD BiValve, run just about any combination of tubes, or only one, if you so desire. One 6K6 on low voltage = ~4 watts, up to a pair of KT88s, on high voltage, for ~35 watts. Effects loop, adjustable line/instrument out.
Extreamly rugged construction, and fixed for free, even if your not the original owner,,US made,,whats not to like.
That's what I use!
So how do you like it, Gary?
The Carr Vincent/Viceroy is a pair of single ended 6L6, if i recall.
Victoria Regal is worth checking out. Use one or two tubes in some kind of parallel SE mode. Can be 5 - 20 watts ranging from one 6V6 to 2 6L6. Or over 30 from 2 x EL34. Also has an efficient speaker (over 100 db) and good reverb and tremendous tremolo on board.
THD Bivalve (30ish watts) See my sig video for what it's like (black strat) but bear in mind I'd just thrown on higher gauge strings just to see and hadn't reset the guitar so the bass strings were unbalenced with the top (too dirty too early). It doesn't do Fender cleans... but the dirty notes are very pure (clean sounding) rather than fuzzy.
Edit The other guy is on a50 watt Peavey Classic 2x12...I'm just using a Marshall 2x12 1936 with G12T75 which is what I let other folks use at jams.......
Belov......not sure if he's still making amps, though.
Jackson Ampworks: pick one... Britain, Atlantic, new castle. They're all awesome.
Morgan: call joe, tell him what you need and he'll help you pick one.
If you're looking for a more tweed sound, hit up Scott from VistaLuxe Amps. He told me that pretty much if his amps don't out live you, he hasn't done his job.
Everything is gig-able with a mic.
I have had it for 10 years now and while I have a bunch of other amps to use , I seem to keep going back to the BV. I run a Celestion Blue dog and a G12h30 55hz in my 2X12 witha pair of 6v6 tubes and I have never had volume/headroom issues at any show so far.
