He is quite wry.
A little too glib.
Plus the tones were meh
Funny that those Johnson amps used to get prime ad space in guitar mags ~20 years ago, now one of the more prominent gear collectors/curators in the internet world wants no part of owning one.
they sure are nice on your back though....
if you can't find a solid state amp you like, you aint tryin hard enough.
good enough 99% of the time.
if i was on tour and had a crew and roadies to pack them things around, i still don't know if I'd use a tube amp.
i've got an early 80's crate amp, thats crap. but I've got some different size roland/boss cube amps and the cosm modeling works really well for me.
i've also got a 71 fender twin and a 67 princeton. and I use the roland/boss amps..
Here's the list of amps he uses -- in order:
Mike matthews freedom amp ehx
Dod grunge reverb
[in jest] Line6 Spider - LOL
I went in with an open mind and left thinking ... Pffft!
Ugh! Another guitarist that doesn't use his pinky, can't do a demo with a clean tone and relies WAY too much on power (5th) chords.. /facepalm
I’d say smug.
He certainly stands out from the average pedal maker, you can say that.
Annoying 'tube amps suck! Wink-wink...' schtick aside, I didn't mind hearing the playing and the amps.
( I really like and own a few SS amps)
I liked the Pathfinder, the.Marshall Lead 12, and Quilter amps the best, just as they line up best with the older stylea of music I play ( and the amp sounds that go with them)
Dug the Roland JC-120 too as I'm a fan of Roland Cube amps, and the JC/Chorus sound is incorporated into that line...
I'm in the market for an SS amp and I happened to watch this video earlier this week. Needless to say, I'm now a fan of JHS and his presentation was hilarious. I gained some helpful information. Funny and informative!
BTW...I've decided I'm going Quilter...either the 101 Reverb + BlockDock 10TC or the Aviator Cub. Definitely leaning towards the 101 Reverb for the 50watts
He can believe what he wants to be honest. I won't be paying too much attention, that's for sure.
I think back to when I had SS amps that required a bunch of pedals to get a great tone.
Modeling amps help with that problem of moving amp and pedals.
My Tube amp when it was good(needs a recap) didn't require any pedals, but heavy.
Not getting rid of my Tube Amp, will fix it soon I hope. Keeping the Modeling amp. Could care less about any straight SS amps and full pedal boards now.
Keeping my Wah and maybe buying a B9/C9 for kicks.
Those who hate SS amps have never tried an Evans.
I'm gonna throw the old Yamahas into the mix. IMHO, they are fantastic.
I have to agree
I adore the clean & reverb from my JX35
I am on the look for one of the first G series with tremolo & reverb
The best way to ensure I will not watch a video is a clickbait title like that one.
Not bad. My only SS amp is an ‘80’s Marshall Lead-12. It is a pretty cool little practice amp.
when i think back, i don't know why it took me so long to go thru a bunch of SS amps, including a marshall lead 100 mosfet, a marshall lead 12, a fender bronco and a peavey something or other before i got into tube amps!
I’ve been watching for a while now and this was one of his more sour moments. He’s usually only partially sarcastic but entertaining and informative. I could see smug and glib if that was your only window.
I've enjoyed my Quilter TB201. I also have a DV Mark 60 Jazz that is a very good clean amp.
