TV Jones Classics and 5F1 Champ


I'm thinking of buying a 5F1 Champ clone off of my local CL. I haven't had a chance to meet up with the seller and try it out yet, but will it get along with my 6120-59-LTV with TV Jones Classics? It's a Gries Minnow head, 5w two knob (vol & master vol) with a 5F1 Champ circuit.


I think you'll be very satisfied with that tone. I haven't found an amp that doesn't sound great with my 59LTV. The Master Volume will let you dial in whatever balance of preamp vs power amp overdrive.

What kind of speaker is in there? An 8" speaker really doesn't do justice to the great sound of these guitars.

EDIT: nevermind, you said it's a head. Be sure to pair it with a good speaker cabinet


Sorry guys, posted this in the wrong Amps forum, meant to put it in Other Amps...


Hi - I think you will like it a lot.

I made a 5F1 amp w/ 10" speaker, sounded great with TV classics.

Very satisfying tone.

Interested to hear how you like the amp. People say good things about Gries amps.
