I think Albert Collins played with volume and tone controls dimed. Get some shooter's earmuffs and try it out!

Not that it makes a huge difference, as either way we are taking about 'Twin Reverbs on speaker steroids,' but I think Albert Collins played thru a ( 4X12")
Quad Reverb, not the Super Six

That amp is awesome. Question: did you cut a hole in the grill cloth to make it easier for the amp to breathe? I mean, it just makes sense, like cutting a hole in your face mask.

I think I saw that one on eBay.
I played in a band with a guy about your height.
He reached his arm straight out to get to the controls of his Super Six.
It's amazing amp.
Have fun.

The real trick is to get 6 different speakers in there and mic them all differently.

Joking aside, that sounds awesome. Another piece of proof against the torches and pitchforks that come out for the MV big boys. What a totally overkill, ludicrous amp - not much more rock n' roll than that, really.

I saw a guy that used one of these as a cabinet for a Hiwatt DR103. When you absolutely, positively have to deafen everybody in the room but don't want a full stack of 4x12s.

I used to practice in a rehearsal space that had one of these. I loved it! The 6x10 is the perfect speaker section for a 135-watt twin!

BTW..played this thing all day after recording a song. Low vol..high vol..any vol..just a great amp..the Speakers in it..just a fabulous overall tone..was surprised the amp is very quiet. It handles all my guitars very well & reveals their characteristics. I am digging the heavier side of this with a RAT & Fuzz..just made for it..the cleans..the best.

I purchased the carcasses of 4 JBL D110Fs that came from a Super Reverb. That amp and speaker combination would be killer. I can only imagine a Super Six with six D110Fs. THAT would be killer, tone-wise and back-wise. To the OP: Sweet amp! Enjoy!

hey i still lift em up..lol.. i am only 5'2", picked er up & put in the car..its really only heavy at top end..what gave me the idea was moving recording area around & lifted the reg Super up & it sounded great..the Pro sounds fine on ground & speads real nice on its own but the super def has the tighter focused sound & being up or tilted really makes them hit nice
