oh that's hilarious because that's such a doom metal rig.
who gets a microphone on their amp at shows? i barely ever see this.
Soul Food pedal. I use it with a Bugera V-22, IT'LL DO THE JOB.
I’m definitely now looking at the fender tone master deluxe reverb.
Hate the thought of going digital but they have their advantages.
Didn't Buck have a Bassman?
Spend a few bucks...and a few more!
I already know the twin is also to heavy. I had an AC15 and at 45 lbs it was to much so a twin or an AC30 is just to heavy.
I’m definitely leaning towards the deluxe reverb.
A Pro would fit the bill as would a Fralin VVT which is essentially a modern Pro and a very damn good one. Only about 40 lbs with some of the best cleans out there.
A Deluxe Reverb would be an excellent choice. I would definitely look at the Tonemaster
I pipe my guitar signal through plenty of DSP before it hits a partially-blackfaced Bandmaster
no point in me getting shirty about it
we live in a mixture
Well, if you’re getting interested in the Tone Masters, and what you want is clean, I’d also look at the Twin. They advertise that as the sound of a Twin, without the weight and with power scaling.
I’ve seen the Super Champ X2 mentioned. I love it, but it really is a home amp. It had a hard time competing with a not-terribly-hard-hitting drummer in a rehearsal room – I don’t think you could gig it in a live country setting.
Sure can! I would recommend running into the vibrato channel, as it has the bright cap (even if the caps effect diminishes the louder you get).
You want a light touch of spring reverb in your tone. The telecaster is the trademark guitar to the Bakersfield sound of Buck Owens, Don Rich, and Merle Haggard.
Oh, yeah! I think the Deluxe Reverb is a perfect club amp. I played mine at a gig this weekend in a decent sized restaurant un-miced. Kept the volume on 6 on the normal channel (still clean on mine), and a touch above 5 on the vibrato channel. Kept up just fine with the band and PA.
At my friends band, “little house live” here in connecticut, they are up on facebook. They play a lot of original Country, with some blues mixed in. The lead guitarist uses a 1968 drip edge Deluxe Reverb with several strats. They mike everything, and use diffusers to block most of the FOH sound. They sound excellent. the overall volume of the band hovers around 95/98 dB. If I was going to use a Twin Reverb, I would use a silverface twin with a ppi master volume. Nothing like a twin and it’s 2 Jensen 12’S.
for the studio 60's sound i like the 60's gibson amp sounds
I play a lot of classic/old school country and am going to be picking up a Tone Master Deluxe in the next couple months once holiday coupons start becoming available. For my uses (mostly play at home these days and don't play with a band anymore, need something for lower volume at home and recording at home and also want a grab and go amp for jamming with friends) the Tone Master seems the way to go. Sure, for $100 more you can get the Tone Master Twin, but dont want an amp that big nor do I need that much power/volume.
I've owned a bunch of Silverface Fenders (Champs, Vibro Champs, Princetons, Deluxes and Twins) and they all will do the classic country thing in spades. Just depends on how much clean headroom you need. Sure, a Twin is the king of clean, but guys like Marty Stuart seems to be doing just fine with Princetons.
Here's my go-to: 71 Deluxe Reverb, equipped with SS rectifier, JJ 6L6s and 2x10 JBL D110Fs.
First choice would be a 60's Fender amp, followed by any of the many Fender amps designed to preserve the characteristic Fender chime established in the 60's. Cheapest examples might be the 70's Fenders, and some 80's reissues, followed by some late 60's Fenders. A Twin with JBL's is pretty magical, forgiving the 80+ lb liability.
