    I already described my tweed super. Meanwhile it gots some changes (6v6 power tubes) and a new housing. So it´s new old amp day ;).

    That´s how it looks like in these days

    For my new band project I wanted something fuller sounding but I love the tweed super so much for its tones. So I decided that it needs a headshell and a separat 2x12 cab. The cab is fantastic, loaded with a Celestion v-type and a Celestion a-type. The two speakers are separated from each other in the box with a wooden divider, the side with the a-type has the possibility to open the backside for a more open sound. It´s really the best 2x12 cab I ever had, full sounding, not boomy and not to heavy.

    Here´s how it sounds, only some noodling recorded with the smartphone. In front of the amp is a clone of the Analogman KoT, guitar is my custom made HSS T-Caster.
