    I had a Kenny Burrell 1 X 12" Combo (40 watts), with a three control reverb.

    Great amp for jazz. Like a tighter Fender Super-Reverb in sound.

    Heavy. Spendy.

    Patriot

    I just picked up a Heritage Patriot. What a great amp! 45 watts, one chanel. dosent get much more simple. It has a very wett reverb! Needs petals in front of it for anything else.
    Anyone else have one? What do you think of it?

    I picked up a Heritage Revolution head a couple years ago. 50 watts, no verb, sounds great. My amp tech took a look inside & said it was an excellent build. Sorry to hear they're out of the amp business.

    I took out the amp section and looked at it. I agree with your amp tech. It IS a thing of beauty!

    Can you please tell me more about this Briton.

    Does it sound Vox'y ? Fender'y ? ...or Marshall'y ?

    I take it, it is a single channel amp ?

    Cheers
    ;)

    I'm getting a new speaker this week for my Heritage Kenny Burrell Freedom amp. I haven't been using it lately for jazz/big band, as I am fond of the Fender Jazzmaster Ultralite SS amp. I did retube it last week and I ordered the Eminence Canis Major speaker to try and warm up the amp a little, the stock Jensen C12N just sounds a little sterile to me. I'll repost or edit this post to give all an update on the results.
    BTW, the Heritage Victory was on my short list as the one I played was a great sounding 6V6 amp!!

    What happened on TGP.

    I had a thread over on TGP about the value of Heritage amps. My point was to say and show that Heritage amps are worth more than they are currently going for. Some GREAT points were made on the thread and the thread was going in a civil direction, even though not everyone agreed with my points. I had several people say they thought I was trying to sell my amp on that thread. I did admit that for the right price I would sell my amp, but I wasn't trying to use the thread to sell my amp. The thread was brought to the attention of the mods there, without even asking what the intention of my thread was, they removed the thread and issued me warrnings for things that I didn't even type! I hope this forum dosen't have the same type of cyberbullies as that one does.

    Now, Why don't Heritage amps bring the type of dollars as other used boutique amps do?? What do YOU think??:?:

    Heritage gone.

    Well, i did sell the Heritage Patriot to a new owner that is thrilled to have such a great amp! Oh,,,,and the price......A reasonable $1150.00 for a mint cond. amp. NOT $850.00. That price was reasonable for a beater, but in no way reflected the "Going price" of these great amps.
    Moving on to a Samamp VAC 23.

    Hello All,

    This tread maybe dead but for what it is worth I played through a Patriot today. It is a really well voiced amp...so much so that I bought it on the spot....I had been looking at a vintage Pro Reverb, Morgan SW22 and a Vintage Sound Vintage 22. All great amps.

    Cheers,

    Randy

    Great amps... Too bad about what happen to them. The Colonial is about the best sounding amp I've ever played. Can't wait to play a Patriot.

    Hello J.T.,

    I agree....but at least we have one and maybe my children will inherit a collectors item.

    I still can't get over the tone and mid scoops. Plus, it really looks sharp. I will post photos soon...

    Cheers,

    Randy

    I have a Colonial. Paul gave me the grand tour of the amps at NAMM one year and I was sold! I will never sell. :)

    I have a Heritage Revolution head and I’m looking for information on this model. There is some speculation that this amp was an early Heritage model and possibly made by Mike Holland before Paul Cochran became involved. Does anyone have any knowledge about this?

    Hi ya'll...just thought I'd revive this old Heritage Amp thread...in case there are any fans still out there. :)

    Over the years I've been fortunate to have scored 4 incredible Heritage amps. Victory combo; Victory head/cab; Patriot and my all time favorite, Liberty head/cab.

    Even though the brand is dead, there must be others who dig these rigs.
