I have now owned a couple of different vintage Gibson amps. A ga20 and a ga8. Man I love their sounds. The problem is, they don't take pedals too well given their age and of course usually need some good upkeep. However I vastly prefer their tone to fenders. They have the chimey bell quality when clean, but they don't have that famous fender mid scoop, and they aren't as low-mid as something like an Ampeg, which is more jazzy. The kind if warmth that they have is just not like any others I know of. It's not muddy, it's not british, it's not mid heavy, it's just BUTTER. And of course when cranked it's the best crunch of all time. The problem is, with the seemingly hundreds of popular boutique amp builders out there, I have yet to come across one that sounds more gibsony. Most go after some kind of fender range. They have big differences of course but it's all fender focused, which is the "american" sound, and the occasional vox or marshall style. Do any other Gibson amp lovers know of any modern takes of that sound? I'd love to find something somewhat comparable that I can put modern pedals through, gig with, and be a workhorse instead of an antique that I baby. Thanks!
