Wow Bones !
You got a killer amp there rock it !
Bones, congratulations on your new hernia.
Once It's cleaned up and set in my music room, it's not going anywhere.
Bravo!!!!! That's a lot of amp...
Back in the 80's, the bass player in the band I was in had a Quad Reverb he was trying to sell.
I tried it out for a few days - it did sound pretty freakin' amazing!
But the effort to haul it in and out of my house confirmed my initial belief that I didn't really need it.
And now that I live in a garage apartment, it definitely does NOT fall into the category of, "Gee, I wish I hadn't let that one go."
Excellent plan. Enjoy!!!
Nice!! Awesome amp until it's load out time! I have s stupidly soft spot for Fender's oversized combo amps. Moving a "dinky" Super Reverb is awkward enough on stairs. What were they thinking?
I love the big amps from that era. Quads, Super Six, Bandmaster Reverb, Dual Showman Reverb-Great sounding amps. I used a Dual Showman Reverb for a year. It was a pain to move but it sounded awesome. Who needs a Marshall Stack?
Imagine someone doing that mod!
Cleaned the grill cloth with Resolve today, it looks a lot better with out looking "new" and it smells much better...
I think that is looking great Bones! and right at home.
Mojo disguised as particulate matter?
43 years of allergens and dead skin.
That's what I said.
Albert Collins fan?
I GUESS SO!
Do you tune it to Fm...or whatever he tuned to?
iirc, his capo was made from a pencil, electrical tape a some rubber bands.
I saw him up close several times, but that was a LONG time ago!
Looking at that rig, I'd judge there is absolutely nothing else needed. Please turn it up regularly. Remember, it's good for the caps!
Well, you would need a cable.
But, yeah, other than that, just some time.... to crank it up and play.
I had it up around 6, working on "Master Charge", for about 45 minutes and while it was a little painful, it sounded pretty close to Albert's tone. If I can get the solo down pretty good, I will post a clip, but honestly in his tuning and using a capo and really digging into the strings, any sort of noodling around has that tone with this rig. It's just such a different way of playing.
I knew I recognized that beast from the local gear page
and congrats @Bones! Enjoy
I'm working on a couple of his songs, in his tuning, with an old capo wrapped in electrician's tape. As much as I love listening to him, it's not really a style that I have tried to emulated much but that may change, I'm just a huge fan of his and his thing inspires me to do my thing. I saw him live for the first time a few months before he passed. It was an amazing show and he must have known by that point that his time was running out. It makes me very happy to come into my room and see this rig, it makes me want to play like no other gear purchase can think of.
