    That AC10 really does have the same tone as "Doug & Pat's" Vox. Would love to have that. So unique. :thumb:

    I had Doug's tech recently rebuild it, so that has a lot to do with how it sounds. He did a couple tweaks to mine so that it has more headroom than Doug's. He told me Doug's works like a switch, it goes from off to rock. Doug uses an old Vox 2x12 cab with 65 Blues. I am using the original Vox 2x10 cab but with new Celestion Golds. The amp would fry the original Vox speakers, so I put those away for safe keeping.

    That amp is such a pisser to play! You just turn up the volume, adjust the tone knob and then everything else comes from your guitar and your hands. You have to hear it with a Strat. It is frickin' glorious! Maybe I can post some Strat clips by the weekend.

    Right, let's get some lo fi action goin'. This is a recording from 2010, done with a little ZoomH2 recorder, just taking in the ambient sound of the room. It was done to demo a bottle neck or slide I'd just finished making from a cow's leg bone. Yes, a bone slide.

    As such it's all slide parts, bits and pieces of improvised, swampy noodling. No rhyme, reason or intent. The instrument was:
    * 1978 Les Paul Standard, loaded with Skatterbrane pickups, into
    * a 1968 WEM Copicat tape delay, into
    * a highly modified 2008 Fender '59 LTD Bassman.

    Mods to the Bassman included: Weber 10A125 speakers, 'corrected' tone circuit, cathode bias. Think of it as a 4x10 tweed Deluxe and you're sort of there. It was pretty loud in the room, as you can hear.

    I guess that's the difference between us, I tend to gravitate towards amps that have a certain tone. More along the Boogie or Marshall variety. Fenders and Vox have never done anything for me so I stay away from them. So when I say I tend to dial in my tone anyway, it's really more of a thing that dependent on the song I am recording I will dial in a tone that fits it, rather than sticking to the, this amp should be dialed in this way route.

    Plus, judging from the clips I have been hearing, I seem to play much more high gain stuff than most here. So come the weekend I will add my ruckus to the mix lol. I won't be offended if people tell me to go away with my high gain stuff.:laugh2:

    Nice playing and sounds in those clips! Those Ceriatone amps are tempting.

    Tunings were open G and open D, from memory. Both were probably a semi tone slack, too (ie, open F# and open C#).

    All amp cravings and debates would be concluded if everybody just decided to just get the DSL...

    Nice to see you're a BuGG brother! I freaking luv this pedal. It's the first thing I mess around with after firing up the rig. Very cool that you chose to use it to cover No Quarter. Sounds great!
