1 DCBirdMan 2 weeks ago New Old Amp Day. In 2003, guitars and amps were the furthest thing from my mind, and I wasn't playing but I had offically switched to Gretsch the year before.A buddy of mine, John Martin - from my Philadelphia days--- fixed and built amps. In the late 90s at least around here silver panel Champs were around $100 and Vibro Champs were $125. So at one point I had 10 of them and still wish I had the pix of the Righteous Wall of Champs. I gave him a few and he built them into all sorts of things. One JUST came back to me-- red/black, with 10" Jensen stuffed in, and a huge output transformer with a single 6550. (along w a 5AR4 and 12AX7). In 2003 I gave it to a young lady who was recording, touring, performing all over. Always thought he could make me another but by 2006 he no longer was On This Planet So 15+ years go by -- she has 3 kids and just dabbles in music now and had given it to her brother who just had it in the closet out in Denver. So connections were made and I got it back today. It's will be totally gone over -- hasn't been on in years. So it's seen here with the 9 watt 6AQ5 Musicmaster bass going thru a 10, and in the middle is the local build 2 channel 14 watter going thru a 12 stuffed in there, and badass tilt back legs. I only need 2 amps so the too-loud 14 watter is the one that eventually goes. It really needs to be out there yelling at people and not playing at 3x acoustic guitar level which is my volume pretty much. For what I do 9 watts is plenty and there is a difference. So it's got my reverb and line out on there. Hey also that white stuff on the left top of the middle amp is sticky goo from attachment-like Velcro stuff. What can get that off (safely) from tolex??
