SHOW ME YOUR AMP/S!
« on: January 24, 2008, 10:27:57 PM »
Hey guys, kindly post your favorite amp. It would be great if you also provide a short story about it, reason why you love it, and details on how it sounds. It doesn't have to be vintage or expensive, as long as you own it and you're happy with it... Here's mine...1970's Fender Dual Showman Reverb



      I got this from one of the members of Philmusic at a cheap price, sold my solid state after a few days. It's really kinda heavy (around 200 pounds)... vibrato, no gain channel, usual EQ controls... master volume... 2X12 speakers, built in Spring Reverb, bright switch for Clean and Vibrato...
this really is a traditional tube amplifier... It sound's best on my strat...very clean...especially when you crank the volume knob...really clean glassy sounding amplifier... You can use a tube screamer for low volume set-ups...
This is the only tube amp i've tried, so I really can't tell... I'm just simply happy with it.... Share din kayo mga bro's...  :-D :-D :-D :-D

have this amp now... vox ac4tv



vox ac4tv gone, have this one now...

my lababol bluesbreaker RI

bought this used, hindi na kasi ginagamit ng kakilala ko. hindi naman ako naghahanap ng amp nun, satisfied nako sa blues deville at sa classic 30. pero after trying this (not at the first time but alot of times) i eventually fell in love, kinda took me long before falling in love,

pagkatapos nun lagi akong hinu-hunt ng tunog nya, i eventually gave up at binili ko na rin... now it's my no.1 amp. the peavey gone and the deville just lying in the instrument room sa church(nways di naman sa akin yung deville).



the only sideback is wala syang master volume, so if you want to crank it, you gotta put alot of volume. but i dont miss the master volume though, kapag jam kami at hindi naka mic ang amp i just crank it up for od sounds, pag nag p perform kami i just use a clean tone at gamitan ko nalang ng od pedal.

the two channels work very fine, tone heaven talaga, but i prefer combining them thru a patch cable. i could get any sound that i want... the tremolo effect is nice too but i don't use it that much.

Here's my K&M Custom and Diezel Einstein:



I play the K&M (through a 2x12) much more than I do the Diezel.  Bumibigay yung 2x12 ko sa Diezel and wala pa akong makuhang matinong 4x12.  The K&M is supposed to be a very good Dumble clone.  I have no idea though if it does or does not sound like a Dumble.  I just like the way the darn thing sounds.


Here's my old /13 FTR37:



I loved this monster.  Yun nga lang, it was just way too loud.  Walang master volume.  Sayang... I couldn't play it at all at night when the kiddos were asleep.  37 watts but it was LOUD!

I got my Laney VC30-210 last May.  I love the glassy clean tones on this amp.  It's perhaps the closest thing to the clean tone that I've ever imagined.  This amp is great with pedals as well.  Interestingly enough, a few weeks before I picked this baby up, I saw Boz Boorer from Morrissey's band using the very same kind of amp onstage and was blown away by the 70's rock tones he pulled out of this machine.

I'm a happy camper to say the least.

There is no tone. There is only music.
