Hey,
This may be a stupid question, but anyways...
On many amp/effect reviews, people usually refer to amps/effects as american, vintage, or british voiced. For example... The *brandname* *model* combo amp is a very nice, british voiced amp. What is the difference exactly? I would like to know for future reference, and also to know what voicing my amp is. And is there any way to go about testing it myself? Also, my amp is a peavey classic 50 (JJ tubes all around).

Thanks in advance!
Call me Wes.

The general rule is:
Fenders are (vintage) american-voiced
Marshalls, Hiwatts, and Voxes (Voxi?) are British voiced
Soldano/Mesa are American/High Gain voiced.

A rule of thumb: El34 and 84 power tubes mean british voiced, 6v6s/6l6s mean American. That's not always the case, but it usually works.
The classic 50 is a British voiced amp.

That's a pretty damn good overview!
