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 some reason, I decided to get out of the military in the middle of a pandemic. Hah. Gotta secure that new job before my terminal leave runs out.
I thought the Supro Delta King 10 was a pretty cool amp I tried recently, check one out. Single channel tube combo, reverb, footswitchable gain and boost feature, they make a smaller and bigger version of the 10 if you prefer a different size but I thought the 10 was perfect!
