Oh sweet jesus:










Also recently acquired a Turbo TubeScreamer, it's not too bad. Next to the Big muff and my wah.


and in case you were wondering, this is what I look like in a bonnet:




It's a Fender "Evil Twin", also known as just a Twin.

100 watts of pure sex, but it has this wonderful 1/4 power switch to turn off a few tub es and make it 25 watts.

The clean tone is godly, crisp, clear, like a bell, the reverb makes angels have orgasms from crying. The drive channel is pretty damn awesome too, it nails that vintage plexi (yeah, I know it sounds crazy) tone, perfect for Cream, The Who, Zeppelin, and The Rolling Stones, and for me!

I was really torn between going all the way for a JCM, or getting a Twin Reverb with a good pedal, this is right in the middle and does both sounds great.

The only issues are:

So fucking heavy, 85 lbs!

Pretty noisy when it's clean and you're not playing (many I've tried were, guess it's just the model), but I don't really care.

The damn tremolo doesn't work! I knew that when I bought it, but I let it slide because I got this amp without paying cash (traded the Deville, and the $250 i was owed from selling my firebird.) and the deville wasn't doing too well

And finally, this amp is very transparent, it really lets my SG shine through, which is great, but it makes my Epi sound like a piece of driftwood

Sorry for the bad pics, had to use my phone, if anyone wants any more info just let me know.

and if anyone has any ideas about the tremolo, that would be nice, it just does nothing, no matter where the intensity and speed knobs are, with or without the footswitch on or plugged in. . .

it might be the tremolo tubes. i believe the twin uses a tube to run the tremolo. check'em out.

That's what I was gonna suggest.

It does nothing at all? Not even a faint sound of tremolo? I have three old amps with tremolo, and they all have it where it's almost imperceptible, but it's there. Sucks, 'cause I like tremolo. Not such a big deal 'cause they're all ancient amps, and I have an AC30 with solid tremolo.

If it's not a tube, it's worth taking to a tech to have it repaired. I mean, if you use it.

And you look very British in your bonnet.

It's not crazy that it sounds Plexi-ish, since the Plexi was based on Fender architecture. Nice amp. I'm more of a Bassman guy myself.

Happy New Amp Day! (Twins own).

However, drive channel and Twin do not belong together. It sends chills down my spine.

I'm just playing. Congrats.

Nice amp! I know it's nowhere near that, but my Blues Jr. is on the way.

I've never played the "twin"...only the twin reverb. 100 Watts though? Daaaamn, that could kill someone.

That's odd, I heard that you HAVE to have the footswitch plugged in to get any response from the onboard tremolo but since even with it it's not doing anything for you i dunno.

yeah, with the footswitch plugged in it didn't work so I took it out, even though I knew that you needed it for it to work, figured it was worth a try.

Maybe I have the wrong kindof cable for the footswitch? That was just what the guy I bought it from gave me. . .

And yes, there's nothing at all, no matter where the settings are, I can't even convince myself to hear tremolo xD

edit:

Ah yes, everyone loves the bigsby xD

It was about $130 new on ebay (was a gift) for a nickel american made B7, not a licensed Asian die cast one. Installation with a standard setup was $120, but it could easily be done at home if you can measure it right, and drill through the finish.

Overall I really like it, enough to want one for my Gibson (if they looked good on SGs, I don't think they do) but I'm considering getting a Long Vibrola for the SG once I'm sure I'm settled with it.

They stay in tune pretty poorly if you use it heavily, but if you use it for light vibrato, with a good setup and stringing you can make it through 3 songs before retuning. if you go bat**** crazy on it (like I do) you'll need to switch guitars or tune between the next song. Also, if you feel the guitar going flat, you can start to use the Bigsby more in the other direction and you can get it back up to pitch, it's pretty odd but I manage to do that sometimes.
