#3
It would natrually be a 10 watt, one channel solid state amp with a 4 inch speaker and no EQ. It would have a picture of a monkey on the side though, so that makes it OK
#4
Based on a, Rivera Tre.
Watts- 120
Head and Cab
3 channels. 1 clean, 1 Med gain(classic rock sound),3 High gain(channel 2 thats already on it is enough)
Master Vol, DEFF!
Half Vol switch, Yes, and a switch down to 10 watts.
Same configuration as it is now.
Valves-El-34's, Pre amp 12ax7's, I forget the other one.
Extras...Maybe a built in compressor, And a 10 band Eq. But its pretty good the way it is.

How would it sound? Like F****** Armageddon hahaha, The clean like Heaven.

4 band eq
3x ECC83, 4x KT88, solid state rectifier

Early 1970s Marshall Superbass circuit, 4x12 cabinet with pre-Rola Celestion G12H Greenbacks.

Godly tone.

Sticking it with KT88s will give it that Jimmy Page tone from TSRTS. I will try to build one of these suckers when time and funding allows.

Yea I was debating on getting one for a while. On paper it seems like the perfect amp for someone that wants to create there own tone and style. But I have heard some people are not to keen on them.. But I still need to get my hands on one to give it a test run... As it sites now I as far as future purchase's I want to get my hands on a Engl Powerball and maybe a Krankenstein for some stereo fun... Then the last amp i will ever purchase is gonna be a Diezel Herbert...
#16
400 watts, solid state

one knob and thats for distortion, cause its all you need.

extra effects: mid pulverizer (brings you mids to zero on first push, second push brings it to negative numbers)

amp modelled after -- MARSHALL MG! i mean like seriously, its a marshall. isnt that the same ones that zakk wylde likes? so it must be crushing!

I know VHTs aren't for everyone, but after hearing Sig X I don't know if I should go for a stereo setup (pick up a 2 ch. Recto and use it with my 6505+) or get a more expensive amp like the Sig X...

Man, those Sig X clips are frickin' TIGHT TIGHT.

would is be based on your favourite amp? if so what ?

how many watts?
25-30

head and cab or combo?
Head+cab

how many channels?
Hotrodded marshall rhythm channel, a blackface fender twin channel, a channel to give some metal like chugga rhythms,and a lead channel with a TON of smooth gain for my leads.
So that makes 4. I could go for some other ones, but that's just excess at that point.


would it have a master volume?
Absolutely.

what about half power switch?
No reason to have one

valve or solid state ( daft question )
Valve :p

what valves?
Probably load it with 6L6's.

any other extras you would wont?
Everything i can get, . built in speaker sim, with direct output, all the fancy stuff you can think of.


how would your custom amp sound?
Freaking awesome, i think.
Gear:

Since I have went stereo I dont think I could ever go back to just one amp.. Its pretty amazing how full two amps sound. And it increases your versatility 10 fold with 2 amps and an eq going on the back end, any tone and any sound is possible. I've managed to get several tones that I didnt even think were possible out of two budget amps (similar tones to Engl Fireball and Krankenstien for example). And the more amps you get the more combos you can run plus no one has your tone when your start running multiple amps..

30w/100w switchable.
-There would also be a switch to go between EL34 power valves and 6L6GCs.
3 Channels.
-Clean, with one gain stage. (Jazz voicing)
-Crunch, with 2 gain stages. (British voicing, like Oasis)
-Lead, with 3 gain stages and a SS boost (switchable). (American voicing, like Metallica)
Footswitchable FX loop with mix dial.
Footswitchable channel switching via MIDI controller.
Valve-driven reverb.
5 band graphic EQ (like the Mesa Mark series)
1 Input.
Cabinet 4x12.
-Oversized
-Fitted with 2x Celestion Vintage 30 and 2x G12T-75 speakers
-Closed Back
-Removable casters

Sound impossible? It probably is...

It wouldnt kill it, hell it wouldnt even make a dent... Take me for example im now wanting to run two pricier amps in stereo which pretty much doubled my expenses lol

GAS is a horrible diease that never ends... Its best to take it in and embrace it for what it is... lol But ohh well we all need a hobby and we cant take it with us right...

Amp 2: Crunch
Marshall JTM45 Bright+Normal Inputs
Master
2x KT66 output tubes
Cathode Bias
30w output

Here's the specs for mine:

It's stereo amp, and I don't think it's tube. However, for a stereo amp, it is very good. Don't plug guitar into it; just use it as hi-fi if it works.


But in all seriousness, it would be stereo amp, and i think it would be tube - 2 separate channels which are footswitchable - one that runs at 30 watts RMS for some clean headroom, another that runs at 15 so that it can be slightly overdriven at the same volume as the clean. This would probably mean 2 power-amp stages, but i'm not sure. no master volumes; instead, it would have an attenuator built in so that i could get power-tube saturation at any level. i'd probably have it built as a head and have matching 4x10 cabs built.
I like analogue Solid State amps that make no effort to be "tube-like", and I'm proud of it...

...A little too proud, to be honest.
#25
would is be based on your favourite amp? if so what ?
yeah on the CUBE

how many watts?
50 billion with watt selector knob to change wattage.

head and cab or combo?
combo

how many channels?
45.3 billion channels

would it have a master volume?
yes and individual volume controls too

what about half power switch?
yup it will have 2 power switches. the first turns on a billion watts while the other one turns on the rest of the watts.

valve or solid state ( daft question )
Valve.

what valves?
it would have multiple valves.

any other extras you would wont?
it will have ability to model any amp in the world and it will be continually updated with firmware. it will also have all the effects with a computer station to make your own effects!


how would your custom amp sound?

how i want it to sound, when i want it to sound.
#27
100 watts. 4 channels. It would be in head and 212 combo form. Master volume and 4-band EQ for each separate channel. It would have power switches from 100w, 25w, and 10w. All valve, not sure on the tubes with all those different channels. It would have a built in tube powered reverb. The sound? Channel A would be a Twin Reverb clean. Channel B would be a Bassman-like overdrive. Channel C would be a Plexi-like overdrive, and Channel D would have a Roadking-like distortion.

how many watts?
100, switchable to 50 and to 25

head and cab or combo?
Head

how many channels?
4:
Clean
Light
Crunch
Heavy Lead

would it have a master volume?
Of course

what about half power switch?
See above

valve or solid state ( daft question )
Valve

what valves?
Erm, don't know much about valves, but JJ/TungSol seem the ones to choose

any other extras you would wont?
want*, and erm...built in spring reverb and an FX Loop which has it's own volume. An EQ like on the Mesa Mark series would be cool too.

how would your custom amp sound?
Clean: Roland Jazz Chorus
Light: Really light OD, think Stevie Ray Vaughan OD
Crunch: Marshall JCM800 overdriven
Heavy: Splawn Nitro bottom end with the ability to turn the mids up to get more of a Quickrod tone out of it.

So basically a big Marshall with a load of extras

No they are not.

A JTM-45 is based off a '59 bassman circuit yet sounds nothing like a bassman. The later JMP plexis (1986, 87, superlead, superbass) are even less like bassmans.

I would have a head and cab style amp. 120 watts, with built in reverb, and a built in attenuator. Also, it would have a built in Acoustic simulator.

4x12 cab loaded with Celestion speakers

2 channels

EQ settings are sliders instead of knobs

No watt switches

Switchable Class A/B

Tung Sol 12ax7 preamp tubes

JJ 6l6 power tubes.

The head would have green LED's that switch on when the amp goes on.

Black metal grille. Pattern looks like //////////////// all the way across.

Distortion channel would sound like a Diezel Herbert on class A/B, and class A would sound like a Marshall JCM 800

Clean would sound like a clean Mesa Boogie on class A/B, and like a vintage Fender amp on Class A.

the grille logos would have CDC in green. It would be made of metal.

Outside of amp would be black.


I would kill for that amp.

Oh and, MSRP $10,500
#36
Based off the Diezel VH4

6 speakers(all 12" custom made by Mesa)

160W

Half stack.

4 channels, Clean,light dist.,Medium dist. Medium-heavy dist w/ presence and deep (like on the vh4 and herbert)

Volume,Gain,Low,Low-mid,Mid,High

Yes to master volume

No half power switch.

Valve>SS

KT66 for the power tubes, and 12ax7 for pre-amp

Head and cab would be made of Mahogany with steel plate like accent.( like a sheet of steel with a design cut out.

Red LEDs in the head that glow out
Built in 32 b and rack EQ, Just because I can. The head would be a rack set with the 32 band EQ actual head it self.
Keeping it real since '92
