    Thanks "friend". Duly noted. Do I stay away from Qanon dogwhistles too?

    Sorry to hear of your situation Tim. Times like that rule everything about your life.

    The Mad Hatter's Tea Party

    I used the 6v6s in my Hammond M101 as a bass amp in my studio for years, through 2 internal 12" Jensens. Good for "classic" Duck Dunn thump but not prog. Lol I think it was rated at 22 watts? The Jensen s were a tad flappy.

    We had to figure out you just can't trust marketing. And our guitar heroes didn't help. Plus peers. You show up with a Standel (like I did at first) or some other "off" brand and the sneers were aplenty. We still see it on guitar forums. Testosterone trumps gray matter. (Pun intended)

    The Mad Hatter's Tea Party

    Exactly. I stopped playing with my partner several years ago. But it's my one LOUD tube amp so I keep it. Just in case. And he had a pretty complete studio and a lot of the time I just played through his MusicMan and brought my guitars or Behringer UltraTwin I used to have. Plywood cab so it was...

    Heretofore you really did need power for bass. But a lot of the requirement is in the speaker characteristics and efficiency. Like you said, that Spark sounded good with a bass. My Vox Ad30VT sounds good but the speaker can't handle it. Lots of really good classic studio bass was DIed anyway...

    The Mad Hatter's Tea Party

    12-20 tube watts is about ideal for guitar unless you're playing a large venue. And nowadays a PA makes even that of questionable value. Had to get a power soak for my Blues Deluxe cause it was just too damn loud. (40w) Lots of clean headroom of course, but that's the damn problem. To get any...

    My Blues Deluxe is 45 lbs, mainly because the cab is that composite crap. Hate that stuff...but it is mostly acoustically dead I guess. Not too awkward to pick up...still I don't deem it too portable. Another good argument for modelers.

    The Mad Hatter's Tea Party

    As I've said...learned what a "step van" was when I busted the windshield out of one with a rock as it drove past when I was about 5. Also learned a few other things.

    Another good point. They just didn't measure up in the ol' Young Guitarist Dick Measuring contest. :laugh2:

    I think it was more in the lines of Tommo not wanting you to head down that dark path. :shock:

    The Mad Hatter's Tea Party

    No, but what you do need is a stepvan. :shock: One of the things I like about modeling is that I can run amps in series using them like overdrives/preamps or power stage modules. Amp overdrive characteristics are so much more sophisticated and rich than pedals. And have classic tone stacks and...

    They do sound good but I liked an AC15 just from the manageable volume and EL84s standpoint. You can push them til they grunt a little and still can stand being in the same room with them. :laugh2: My god...when we had to practice in an unfinished basement with an AC30 it was murder.

    The Mad Hatter's Tea Party

    In the '70s I had a monster Yamaha G100 412. A combo with 4 12s IN the combo. :shock: I thought "100 watts= I RULE! " Then I played with my buds. One guy had a rough looking AC30 from the '60s. Don't think it was a topboost. It totally shut me down and I had to grit my teeth when I strode in...
