Uy talaga, dito lang ako sa madrigal office. Let me know pagumuwi ka. As for the SFs, no mods done so far. Stock configuration sila.  :) Maybe will try one soon

Ah, actually I started way back last quarter of 2010 lang. Yup, surprisingly, puro local purchases lang ako. No overseas transactions (for now). Siguro ang key is I travel a lot. Meron ako mga experiences na while driving, may nakikita akong electrical shops na may Fender logo. Titigilan ko yun and makikita ko sa loob ng shops yung pile of Head amps. Di nila ginagalaw kasi wala sila idea pano gawin haha! So in short halos stock pa. Dinala lang daw ng owner para pagawa kaso walang tubes. Yung bandmaster ko naman nakita ko sa isang rehearsal studio (buti di nakita ni Chino kasi malapit sa house nila to haha), ginagawa lang patungan ng gamit. Tinanong ko kung gumagana and they said hindi na. I asked kung pwede bilhin, hindi daw kasi mawawalan sila ng patungan. hahahaha! I offered na lang palitan ng bass amp na pwede patungan, ayun pumayag. Pagdating ko sa house, busted lang pala isang tube. The rest untouched.

Pero karamihan sa old musicians ko nakukuha. Nakakalibang talaga. Yung thrill ng hunting ang nagbibigay kulay dito. Bukod sa tone of course  :-D I think marami pa dito.

Hahaha! Madalang kasi ako sir lumabas ng bahay. Di rin ganong nagrerehearsal studio kasi kumpleto naman ng gamit sa bahay. Hehe. Sana mesa na lang pinalit niyo, patungan lang pala kelangan nila.  :-P

Ganda ng Bandmaster na yan! Ang kinis kinis pa.

 :lol:

I better start taking closer look at the butingting shops, baka may ginto amidst the busted JVC's and Samsungs!  Abangan din natin yung iba.  Malamang meron din may mga collection dyan, or at least one old fender amp that they hold dear.  Nahihiya lang at this point. :wave: :wave:

Thanks siore for starting this thread. :)
Here's my '74-75 Fender Dual Showman Reverb head on a Bassman shell.
2x12 cab with non-Fender 50-watt speakers. Cab is still being restored. Got it without the back cover and had a fuzzy exterior that I just had to retolex. Still lacking is a front panel with a grille cloth. to follow...  :-)
Got the head also without a back cover, made one and tolexed it as well.

Paging sir upfront...  :-)

Napansin ko rin yan. Ok yung tunog nung amp both sa strat ko at sa tele ni cayle. Sigruo gawa din nung signature tones na inaapproach nung ganung setup.

Name doesn't do justice bro. I've seen some demo videos ng Blues Jr + high gain pedal and it sounds good. Actually kaya ko nagustuhan yung Wampler Plextortion kasi may nakita akong demo nun na Blues Jr ang gamit...grabe yung tone.. panalo. :)
