It’s grown a bit. Just acquired a hand wired tweed Bassman build, ‘66 Vibro Champ, ‘65 Reverb 6G15, and ‘67 Bandmaster head. Missing is my ‘64 Princeton 6G2, currently in for services.
Pretty much the whole pile right now - SCXD, '63 Vibroverb RI, Pro Tube Concert Amp, '70 SFTR, Ampeg Jet RI, '94 Deluxe 112, and Ampeg B100R. Everything I need to make noise and piss off the neighbors.
Full mess but that's the whole family.
Mesa Rectoverb 25
Reeves Custom 10HG
Marshall Mini Jubilee 2525H
Cornell Romany Plus
Mesa mini recto 1x12
Orange PPC112 loaded with Fane F70
I was wondering how much weight a cab would hold. Now I know...
Lately it's been old Gibson Amps.....on the left is a 58 Gibson Ga-20 and on the right a 1960 Ga-30
I picked this up a little while back...with help from a friend. I really like it.
I have a few Fenders, a Marshall and a Music Man but this is all I play any more.
Rocking the Pro Jr. IV!
5e4 Super clone, handwired, pine cab, 5881s. Sounds glorious. Scripty sparkle jet with TV Jones and TruArc.
updated trending heavier music lately
My newest amp is this Hughes & Kettner Tunemeister 18W 1x12 Combo that I've owned since January.
The features that drew me to this amp.....
1) Switchable from 18W, 5W & 1W. So covers everything from home practise to stage use.
2) The XLR output. I lot of my work is playing in pit bands for stage musicals. So with this feature I can have a direct feed to the board without the need for a mic.
3) The channel switching allows you to easily move from clean to dirt. Plus the lead channel has the boost facility to give you a lift for solos.
4) The Gain & Master settings are very interactive on this amp. You can get a multitude of sound hues by playing around with these settings.
5) The effects loop really seems to add some dimension to delay pedals. Much more noticeable than having them in front of the amp.
6) The weight - 34lb
The only feature that I am not really happy with is the electronic reverb. I would have preferred spring - but the other features above outweighed this negative.
18W Marshall 1958X Handwired.....
But I play the Dr Z Mini more often.... its a lot more 'home" friendly.
Thanks to PhotoBucket's greediness (read; pulling all my prior pics), I can show off mine once again.
nice set ups
So here's what I'm working with, plus a 60s Montgomery Ward 62GVC-9032 and a JCM 900 Hi Gain Master Volume MkIII 2x12 combo...
Marshall Lead 12 and JCM800 1933 1x12
Fender Princeton 112+
Fender Blues Jr III
1977 Fender Musicmaster Bass
1973 Fender Champ
1961 Supro 1614
A double couple... LYN 7W Tube Head + JON Double Tank Tube Reverb.
How do you like the Stereo, do you maybe have some soundfiles? Would love to hear some.
I decided to go for the 1X12 'mono' because of the weight (of the Stereo) I would have to haul around (to gigs, old man, bad back), but still wondering what if..............
