I'll just get one of these and swap the pups with left over monies.

My Ibby could handle that rig nicely, too.

No, once you get a spare 5 grand, you're getting one of these:

Buddy himself autographed the first 50 or so.

But, If I had a spare 5 grand, i'd hunt down an original 1964 vibroverb. With an EV speaker :drools:. And, I should have some cash left over for pedals and other guitar stuff.

This man is correct. Everybody else can have their super mega doom hellfire gain amps with an ESP Viper and I'll take a Vibroverb and a strat and show you all who's boss.

But for shizzle,
I'd get a Two Rock Custom Reverb Signature, Original Vibroverb, Metro 50 watt plexi, Original Tweed Bassman, a Two Rock cab, a cab with Celestion Greenbacks, and the most expensive attenuator I could find (because if it's more expensive it must be better! )

Oh and I'd get a John Mayer strat, Stevie Ray Vaughan strat, Goldtop Les Paul, American Tele, TS808, another TS808, original Vox Italian Wah, echoplex, TC Chorus, and an original Univibe.


Once I win the lottery of course....

I'd rather meet Buddy, have him sign my arm, then have that arm tattooed


CBB or Vibroverb wouldn't quite the DOOOM!.

I'm not particularly fond of any Blackface amp, save the Super Reverb, and even then I'd rather have a Blonde Bassman.


I would slap a Blond Bassman in there. Crank the mofo and let the epicness begin.

Missing the point. I wouldn't use any gain above what you would be.

Though a non master volume Plexi would fit well. With an 8x12 cab and another 2x15

Only reason I said viper is because I want a Baritone SG style guitar.

ROFL at getting a Silverface Bassman.

Why? Have you ever played one? Have you ever heard one cranked?
#24
im gonna find an old blackface super reverb and an old 61 strat. that should put me way past the 5 grand mark. and just because i can, i will also get an original leslie speaker cabinet, and an old ES-335. maybe add a dumble an an old Plexi too.

nice. the ones in great condition usually go for about 500 now, but 3 years ago i saw them for like 250-300. i guess the secret is out, silverfaces do sound good. everyone talks about the CBS years like they were awful, but fact of the matter (barring a few exceptions) they were still professional level instruments and amps, and lots of people used them at the time.

yeah i remember when you had a thread looking for a new amp, i kept forgetting that i posted in the thread and ended up recommending a bassman and telling you to listen to a clip of mine like 246 times haha. i think you ended up finding the right amp for you though.

I have in fact played a 1973 Bassman 100 head, they sound just fine for clean but do not break up nicely at all.

Tweed Bassman? Sure, GREAT amp, silver face bassman? Not a fan at all.
#33
Yeah, i'm glad I splurged on my CBB.
The speakers are it's weakest point ATM, so i'm waiting for the weber CTS alnico clones to come out. Other than that, the thing is a monster blues amp.

my 76 bassman 50 has mediocre sounding cleans, and great breakup.
are you sure your amp is in good working condition? could need new tubes and often need the caps replaced.

This one http://sacramento.craigslist.org/msg/805130969.html

is 50 watts.


And for what I'd use it for, it would be pretty much dimed.

I'm talking a stereo rig with a Matamp, 2 2x15's and 2 4x12's. Overkill FTW.

It wasn't mine, it was at a vintage guitar shop a few years ago while I was in South Carolina. '73 bassman (with a reissue reverb unit), I just thought the breakup was just not smooth in general and had a very harsh top end. I wanted to see if it sounded like a Marshall after learning that the first JTM45 was based off the 59 Bassman.

after reading your past again i realized it wasnt yours.
but my guess is, that amp could have been much better with a good check up by a tech. however, that being said, not everyone likes the tone of every amp. it may not be your thing. different strokes for different folks, you know?

edit/ and yeah, the sf had changed quite abit since the 59s, so they werent very marshally anymore. although i was able to get a nice marshally tone from mine when i took the art tube preamp and used it infront of the amp to really push it hard, and then jumped the channels and turned it to 8. i used it on one song for my bands album, i was very happy with it. (although i could only do one take, because we did it in our dorm room and people were unhappy haha)

Something may have been wrong with the one you tried.
The one I played sounded quite fat. It didn't have the character of a tweed BM, or a BFSR, but it sounded great for the price. Perhaps different speakers or tubes played a part?

Yeah definitely.

I've never been a big fan of overdriven Fender's in general.

Perhaps, the speaker was original. I'm pretty sure it had been re-tubed, smaller vintage shops like that tend to take pretty good care of their stuff I've found. Regardless, it was just not for me. The verge of breakup sound is ok, but full all out, cranked to 10 sounded rotten to my ears.
