    Amp Recommendations?

    Cheshier - thanks for the vids man. TOok me forever to come back to this, but I surely appreciate it! I think I will have to pick up a red knob before too long. They seem to sound great, have a bit of a cult following, and are surprisingly affordable. Gonna have to hold of for now though. For...

    For you "The Twin" owners - how is the breakup on it when you DO drive it? Both high and low lower? Its looking pretty tempting.

    Amp Recommendations?

    Ok, talk to me more about this Red Knob Twin... Seems like a decent amp. 25/100W modes. Great clean tone. There seem to be plenty on the market in the $4-600. Why so cheap? I see a lot of positive comments about them too. Also, how loud is that 25W? This would be a flexible gigging amp with all...

    Here’s the actual Ampeg that is local. The above was an internet photo. Interesting thing with this one is the speaker location. It’s centered whereas most that I see online have an offset speaker. There doesn’t appear to be any modifications. It appears factory. The market seems to be 1k-...

    Ha, Peavey is what I’m using now. Peavey ValveKing 20mh. Good little time amp. Way better than the massive 200w Solid state Randall I had prior. Not gonna get rid of her. Gonna pick up some new tubes for her and make the kids play with me!

    Plugged into that Ampeg again today. Swapped out the chinese tubes with some better ones he had laying around. Man - does it sound good. Im gonna keep my eye out, but that thing may be the one. Such a great warm sound. Really digging it. +5 pts for glowing too, haha

    Local shop has one of these in it. It has a great sound to it. Warm. Breaks nicely. Has a great overdrive sound when dimed. This isnt the exact one, but same model. Late 60s Ampeg Portaflex SB-12. Seems they are pretty sought after. Havent made up my mind yet, but its on my list. He has a 5E3 in...

    Amp Recommendations?

    Yall have really put alot of thoughts in this head! I may have to get with my local luthier (only guitar dude in 100m radius, ha!) and see what he could build me. He's had quite the career building amps over the last few decades. Ill have to check out some other stuff too! He has a sexy vintage...

    FWIW, I prefer tubes. I just need more headroom that what I have. That’s why O tend to think Fender is a good starting point. I’d be running the SG Special, a Strat, a Tele, a p90 Guild and maybe even the ole Schecter with some buckers in it. SG is m main axe, but I like to mix it up from time...

    Price is pretty flexible. I have a lady that is pretty supportive of my addiction. She doesn’t even want me to sell the current amp! :cheers:

    Amp Recommendations?

    So.... I think it's time for a new amp. I have enjoyed my Peavy Valve King head, but it just doesn't really do it anymore, and it doesn't seem to like my SG Special a whole lot. The head room leaves me feeling like Shaq in a hobbit house. Anything above 3 and I run the risk of breakup unless I'm...

    Is a Gibson Les Paul, necessary when you own a good SG ?

    Id like to echo Jack Hammer. While, do you NEED that LP? Nah, probably not. What amazes me the most is how different guitars tend to inspire you (at least me) differently. When I pick up my Tele, Ill play something different than I do on my SG. Same for my Guild, Schecter, etc. It is amazing...
