Hi guys My head is currently spinning trying to decide on a 5E3 or similar style tweed amp. Both of my current amps are in the tweed genre and its definitely ‘my sound’. I have a 5F8-A clone made by an Australian company called Lucas Miles. Its fantastic quality and sounds devine......however its bloody heavy so not the most practical amp to grab for a jam. My other amp is a 1953 Supro Comet (5W) which also sounds great but obviously not loud enough for playing with others. So I feel like something in the 15W range would fill this hole in my amp arsenal. I dont need loads of headroom as I dont particularly want pristine cleans. I like some hair on my ‘clean’ tone and then a boost or 2 for higher gain. i am familiar with most of the brands that make 5E3’s and have previously owned a Tungsten Cortez which was a good amp. I should note that I am not limiting myself to a 5E3 replica but definitely want something in that vein. The current favourite is the Louis Electric HD12. The demo’s all sound fantastic and the output sounds about right. Only downside is the price. Goodsell’s 5E3 in a Princeton is another interesting option and a bit cheaper. No I demo’s available unfortunately but I do know a guy in the states who had this amp and loved it. I also liked the demo’s for the Lil Dawg D-Lux. Victoria are out of my price range and I’d like to try something different from the Tungsten this time around. As you may have gathered from above, i’m in Australia so 240V, shipping costs and import taxes are all considerations. Ultimately I want something that is high quality but also good value for money. I’d love to hear any experiences with the above options Or have I missed something i should be looking at (being mindful that I am already confused by the current options).
