    Hi all, I’m considering purchasing a Valvetrain Concord to pair with my Franklyn Amps Tweed Vibrolux and I’m curious if anyone has played one of these little guys? I’m also looking into the Lexington. Anybody played or owned one of these? Any opinions on Valvetrain in general? Much appreciated!

    Hmmm, I have a Sound City Concord 80 but this ain’t that!

    Definitely a different animal, for sure!

    I have a Valvetrain tweed Champ clone, so probably a lot of DNA in common with a Concord, and by gum, it sounds like a tweed Champ. If I could add "Treble", "Bass", and a 12", I bet it would sound pretty good.

    Well I purchased one from the Valvetrain Amps Reverb store after chatting with Rick at Valvetrain. I was also looking at the Lexington and he suggested the concord as I already have a tweed vibrolux and the concord is made to cop a blackface tone and would complement the Vibrolux nicely.
