Evans don't count. They're handmade boutique SS and aren't exactly common......choice was other, but than again its a Peavey.
i have the express 112 blue stripe and it does a marvelous clean.
not so fond of the transtube distortion, but i gues that some rock and metal heads would like it.
i think this amp is a good start for pedals because if cleans turn out well, that you can go everywhere ;-)
Old evans, sound creator amps have the same good cleans, and i even like the little crate 15R
- Fender red-knob Pro 185. Essentially a SS Twin Reverb - a 180 watt RMS 2x12 combo. 55 lbs, plus the necessary casters. Clean channel is extremely powerful. The secret sauce in the amp is in the variable power effects loop; use a short TS patch cable to jumper the loop and use it as a master volume. As with most of Fender’s SS line at the time, the power amp section is run flat-out, and the preamp section is where all of the desired tone is derived. Unless the preamp is run at a high level, it’s going to sound poor. Set the amp’s (many) controls to get your preferred sound with the variable effects loop jumpered and set to minimum, then bring the effects loop control up until the volume desired is achieved. Many did not know about this trick - so they thought the amp was terrible. I gigged that thing a lot and never had a complaint. (Never needed to be mic’d at any gig, ever. Crushing power when needed.)
Yup. It takes a very close read of the manual and a LOT of tweaking to find good tones. But I found the quest to be worth it.Our local blues club had one of those for the house amp for their weekly Tuesday Night Blues Jam. My view was that it was an amp that had some good sounds in it, particularly the clean channel, but definitely gave you enough rope to hang yourself too. The little red buttons for combining the channels would confuse people too.
sorry, but in this case you are wrong, if i remember correct Korg was behind these amps and effects ;-)Evans don't count. They're handmade boutique SS and aren't exactly common......
I can't say I've ever been a fan of Crate SS. My first exposure to "real amps" was a SS Peavey 2×12 classic chorus and a long-borrowed silverface champ. Started off kinda spoiled I guess.

This Evans Super Echo was found on eBay Feb 2010. The seller thought it was Australian however from one example I have found some if not all were made in Japan. However from a US forum there are suggestions that it looks like a Multivox MX-312 0r 201. Samejedistar.com
Marshall had some good sounding solid state amps in the 1980's like the Lead 12, Lead 20 and the Master Lead 30. I managed to snag a Lead 20 on the bay for $120.
This is the video that inspired me to get one. Alvin is playing through a Master Lead 30.
your right, 2 with the same name.While I am wrong (constantly), I'm pretty sure we're talking about 2 different companies.

I'm talking about the oddball company making these things that are well regarded by pedal steel players.
I'd never seen the stuff in your link before.
Which I suppose means they're both not all that common.
Learn something new everyday I guess.
