Here's my 50w Port City Pearl head with a 1x12 OS Wave cab: I actually bought the cab before getting the head; asking for a tan grill that would match the look of my modded NOS Blues Jr (which has an ext cab jack in it). The Wave's design moves it more towards the fullness of a 2x12 while maintaining the focus of a single. It's a great cab. Then I got word that an online friend of mine was selling his 50w head. Turned out he lived nearby; so I drove over, checked it out, and did not hesitate. I love this amp. Am using a HOF mini in the effects loop when I'm not using my big board (which has a reverb pedal on it), though it's not always on. Depends on what I'm playing. That's what's so nice: the basic tone of the amp is beautiful. And anything you add to it, just builds off of that basic great sound. I know it's a cliche, but the fact is that it really does provide an excellent pedal platform. I play jazz and classical, so I need a great clean tone. But I play a lot of other styles, too...so the dirt and mod pedals are an important part of my sound. Some of the finer points that I really appreciate about this amp: 1) The bright switch. It's very, very effective, both with clean and overdrive/distortion. Amp sounds great both with and without it on. 2) The eq knobs are really precise. You can dial in a lot of tones. And the Mids can be completely dialed out, which makes that super scooped Twin tone possible. This is a biggie for me. I love that sound. 3) I didn't understand the need on a single channel clean amp...but the effects loop is a sweet perc. 4) I have a UA OX Amp Top Box. This amp and any pedals I add sounds fantastic through it's cab/speaks/mic/room simulations. And the sound is awesome when I set the amp at just a little over the verge of breakup (which, at 50w, it can do nicely...though it does have to be loud), with the OX working as an attenuator. Anybody else have one of Daniel's excellent amps?
