From what you said, I'd probably like the Bassman more, but Im through with amps for now. Also, why are Tweed Twin Deluxe reissues so much more than a Bassman reissue if the Bassman is more popular?

The Tweed Twin is handwired and uses NOS parts, iirc.

The NOS tubes last very long, right?

Well, NOS tubes are of better quality than the tubes made these days, so as long as you take care of them, they should last for a few years.

Al: Aren't JTM 45s plexis?


techincally... yes. they have a plexi panel, but generally, when people speak of a plexi, they're talking about the late 60s 50 watt plexi panel JMP and super leads. But yes the JTM45 IS a plexi, but they don't really sound much like the super leads or JMPs and are generally referred to differently.

I have to keep editing it because people keep asking why they aren't in it.

Though not a vintage amp, per se, this thing nails vintage tones as well, if not better, than most other amps I've heard.

Yeah, I see a few Old Flame Heads on CL and eBay every now and then. If I could afford it, I'd get it and sent it into David Allen and get it put into a 2x10, where it belongs.

I like this, I love talking about vintage gear and their reissues, clones, mods, etc.

And I agree, all the talk about finding amps for "br00t4lz" gain and drop A tunings gets a bit bland.

lol alot of those bands use marshall stuff and dont drop A unless your are a Norwegian black metal band, or like having a flabby sound.
on the other hand, ive been digging the orange crunch sound for doing more poppy punk stuff. anyone recomend anything? it can be vintage or marshall or what ever.

Get an Orange ad30 combo. Very versatile amp.

But I'm an old fashioned man. I like an amp I can sit on.

Not only that, anything Fender-ish, I just don't like the idea of it NOT in a combo.

Oh, you mean something along the lines of a........Laney VC15?

I love Laney, they make great stuff, especially their Lionheart and VC lines.
They are outrageously expensive in north America, though. The 5 watt Lionheart combo retails for just under a grand over here.
#108
I'd also add Orange there. The Rocker 30 and Tiny Terror are very classic British tone, very good examples of it really.

What I don't like about Oranges is that they don't have a defeat-able master volume.
Or the fact that you have to play them really loud for them to sound right.....

Other than that, they're awesome!

I'd take a non-master volume Orange or Matamp any day of the week (and twice on Friday).

^The old OR80's do I think.


Matamp is epic.

marshalls are in the same boat though
#114
Yeah, but the only Marshalls I actually enjoy are the JTMs and JMPs of the sixties to mid-seventies ( before they released the master volume amps).

Now, the only modern-day Marshall I like is the vintage modern, which does have a master volume, but sounds great too.

Now, about playing them loud: I won't be playing my BB really loud, because I want a clean sound anyway. I'll dime it from time to time, but I love those cleans.

Oh, and I've tried to like modern Marshalls like the JCM 900, 2000 and JVM, but I find that they have way to many controls ( the JVM especially) and don't have the sound I'm looking for.
#115
The VM is ok, I'm not a huge fan but I think it sounds ok. This board seems to really hate them though. I think getting rid of the master volume would help a lot on that amp, playing it at low volume levels just makes them sound way too fizzy.

I think on the low dynamic range, with the volume cranked and the detail and body knobs around 3-4 sounds ok though. Gets rid of the fizz and lets the KT66s do the work.

My JTM45 doesn't have a ton of headroom. It actually starts breaking up at around 3. I mean, its still pretty clean, but the volume seems to make this huge jump between 2 and 3 and then starts to level out around 5 where it doesn't really get much louder, just more saturated.

my restored 66 Super Reverb, it was falling apart so i re did the exterior. Everything on the inside it was pretty good. Replaced the tube sockets cuz they were burned and replaced the electrolytic caps. All in all sounds awesome for cleans at 1-4, after 4 it starts to breakup giving a very nice rock/hard rock crunch.

She's beautiful!

PS: Gooley, build one, seriously. It's cheaper, and totally worth it. Plus, when you tell girls that you build it yourself, their clothes will automatically disappear!
