Hi all, The local GC had a vintage Super Reverb. Thats as rare as big foot sightings around here! So I had to take it for a test drive. Pulled a used AM Std Strat off the wall and fired it up. It sounded absolutely spectacular. I couldn't stop playing. It almost became a hostage situation. "Sir, put down the guitar...", "We have your wife here, she wants to talk...", "Sir, you dont have to do this, we offer credit and layaway options..." It got me wondering how much difference the 4x10 cab makes. I have a Brunetti head that is very much in the Fender camp. Dials at noon, Plugging it into a 1x12 cab and doing a side by side comparison with my DR sounds very similar only more bass. Im wondering if a 4x10 cab will make that big of a difference or is it just the magical combination of components, speakers, cab, and Leo dust, and only the real thing will do it. While we are on the subject, does a '65 RI actually sound like a real '65 Super? What about the Silver faced ones? Used they are butt ugly but affordable. I wonder if the stock speakers in those are junk. Looks like they were some rebranded Fender ceramic speakers. I heard the new Jensen alnicos in the '65 RI dont sound like the original Jensen's. So I guess thats a lot of "stuff." Sorry, it just kind of spilled out of my brain. I would really appreciate the thoughts of my fellow gear addicts. Thanks!
