Do you mean a 4x8? Or do you have a 4/10th's scale svt fridge cab? Hahaha
8 four inch drivers from some craptech stereo system.
I'd like to get my hands on a now discontinued Blackstar 4x8. I always wanted to see how it sounded as a mini-4x12.
There were actually also some 4x6" cabs made, by Crate and also Quantum.
Two brand new ones on reverb.
And one on ebay for $200 with local pickup in Delaware.
Hartke made a 4x8 and possibly a 4x6 if I recall.
Thanks... I saw that some time ago. Tempting but they are asking almost double of what they cost when widely available. $369 is a bit much for an experiment with a cheap cab. I should have snagged one at $199.
I've had one for years. It's the best small "new" amp I've used. I got a pine cabinet for mine and threw in an Eminence Legend 12".
Looking to try a 212 cab with my SCXD.
I used to drag an Acoustic 6 - 10 cabinet around. Made in the early 70's with 10" Celestians. I kept it until about 10 years ago....and I'm sorry I sold it.
Again, digital isn't a bad word anymore......people need move ahead from 15 years ago. Is it possible that Channel 1 in the SC is "all tube" and channel 2 which has the modeling is hybrid ? Some of the wording in the specs can be misconstrued, but I'm not sure on this one.
I've been using two SCXD combo's since 2009. I have replaced the speakers with Eminence Legend 105's. I routinely use the amps for shows up to 200 people. For more than that, you can always use a Mic or the Line Out. I run Electro-Harmonix tubes, and I can't believe that I've never had any reliability problems with these amps.
I still have an SCXD that I converted to a head. Owned the X2 head but preferred the XD. It covers all of my Fender bases. In fact I sold my DRRI after acquiring the XD and have not looked back. Not saying the SCXD is as good as the DRRI but it speaks Fender big time.
Nope....even channel 1 is a DSP model that's "locked" to that particular model. It's still good, but there is no "pure" tube path in this amp. However, I think it may be possible to rip out all the DSP and add a 12AX7 to convert it to a full tube Princeton without trem or reverb. That's my plan if mine ever dies out of warranty.
That sounds like a very interesting project to me
If you go to the SCXD owners group or the X2, there's a build of a all tube amp in the SC chassis.
Great amp. Having had old Bandmasters ans Bassman heads in the 70s, this technology is a dream. Just a home studio rig for me. I haven't played-out with it, but it does some really neat stuff. I went with a 2X10 Eminence cabinet that works well. I wanted to keep it small. But, I've really enjoyed it. I tried it in the store through an Ampeg 4X10 bass cab with a horn and it sounded fabulous, with plenty of guts. So, I guess you can match this thing with just about any 8 ohm cabinet to get the tone you're after. I thought the newer Bandmaster cabinet, the smaller Vintage Modified model I believe, would be a good match with the Super Champ Head, too.
Sweet pic... they look awesome together. I've wondered how the Super Champ would sound with the new 1X12 BassBreaker cab.
One of the things you can do with this head that helps Tele players, is design a pre-set for slide, using the compression pedal. You can add some density and dimension to the bridge pickup that works well for slide. I was looking at compression pedals before I had the FUSE software. So, there are a number of things you can do with the amp. Some of which I hadn't really thought about until after I played around with it a while.
