My personal definition of "vintage" gear is something obviously old but currently works very well. And that's in general but not rigid. That's just specific for my purposes though. If I had to put a...

So you've actually only had one amp fail you? And a cheap solid state amp is the solution? To each his own I guess.

As has been mentioned, Id ditch the G3 if I were you. They're kickass gadgets but they'll mangle good tone. Also, put delay in the loop. Also, I love the Soul Food but I dont think it makes for a...

I was curious though, I knew I wanted to try a 12at7 with it, but, does it matter which slot on the module? I just stick 'em in and see what happens, I haven't noticed which does what yet, or if it...

So, I swapped out the tubes in my 1086 module for an old RCA 12at7 and 12ax7 (it came with GT and JJ 12ax7s) thinking that might tame some of the muddiness and brighten it up a bit and it did...

No worries, my neighbors are cool and the Blackface module takes pedals well (imo, the 1086 definitely does not like pedals at all) and sounds good at low volume.

I think, if I were looking for a big amp, I'd pay $700 for an RM100, if in good condition. He sold me the 1086 for $80, not bad considering Salvation Mods charge $219 for a donor. I think I get a...

So I guess a Twin is outta the question. Can you save up another $100-$200? Decent amps for a band setting tend to start around $300-$400, from my experience, ymmv.

Pffft, I still have a Vox VT30, imo its the best starter amp. But that's just me, I tend to be a bit of a frumpy, cork sniffer with budget starter amps.
