One of my customers today had this in their basement:







I left him my number in case he ever wants to sell it. He's a fiddle player who can't play anymore due to a stroke he had. He used the Twin for amping his fiddles. Cool guy. Had a nice conversation while I was doing his install.

Oh yeah, he plays the accordion now :) You can see it on the floor in the second pic.

Don't know why this pops into my head, but Steve Miller used to claim he ran his turntable through a Twin so when he listened to records, he could add in the reverb. I've always wanted to set that up myself...

That's a great amp - and the idea of a fiddle through it is pretty cool.

Righteous.

I wish I could find a fiddle player that had that kind of heart. Hell, and a bass player, and drummer and guitar player...

Good story! Here in my neck of the woods, everybody thought you didn't have an amp unless it was a Twin.
I was playing drums back in the 60's with this country band, and remember 4 Twins in the back line, guitar, fiddle, steel, and a booster for the Rhoads.

And I'm betting the volume knob was no higher than "3" on any of them.

Back in the glory days of the 1990's we didn't shy away from diming our stacks or Twins . From some of the war stories I've heard guys from the 60's and 70 detail, they did much the same cause if you were the opening band you wanted to blast the headliner off the stage, literally, and if you were the headliner you wanted to make sure you were twice as loud as the openers. Plus, part of the thing was having a bad ass back line. 4 Twins or 4 Bassmans and a couple of Ampeg V-4's is an awfully pretty site. You also have to remember, the sound really projects, so the audience takes the brunt of it, and bodies absorb a lot of sound vibration, as does gin soaked wood. And so the battles raged.
