Hey freebird12 - I just sent you a PM. I commissioned the original Rooster from Phaez. Let me know if you have any questions.
Anyway here are the questions I have. I love the JCM 800 tone, but was never in love with the marshall no range tone stack. Don't want to use an EQ pedal if I don't have to. The Jubilee has a way more dynamic stack, but most of what I have heard the amp is way too fizzy for my liking. I had an older Duophonic that was corona and sibly. Sibly sounded good, but again the tone stack was meh. I can cover the plexi like sounds with my Traynor Bassmaster or Bassmate and my YCS50 covers a lot of highgain tones (or my Dark Terror)
What Phaez gets me close to JCM 800 territory or higher gain without the jube's fizzyness, and does that amp have a more responsive tonestack. Is a daisycutter or pasadena maybe what I should be looking for? Asheville perhaps or just go and get the real deal reg Marshall head for 1500 and build my own cab.
Any help is appreciated. Thanks.
I live in Windsor no less. I had talked to randy some time ago (5 years maybe) about an an asheville but life has a funny way of limiting the number of amps I have. I was on a Godin forum and realized 10 Godins, 2 seagulls and an Art and Lutherei have passed through my fingers while I still have 4 of them...and I don't play much, just tone chase.Welcome to the MLP forums, doc_madsen. The Daisycutter and Pasadena might now be very similar (or the same) amps. Years ago, the DC had four gain stages and plate-driven tonestack between stages 3 and 4. It worked well. It's not a JCM clone, so Marshall purists would probably look elsewhere for a tone clone. But the DC does sound Marshally to my ears.
In what part of Canada do you reside? I'm out on the west coast. I just modded my BassMaster into a gain monster (with a responsive tonestack).
Check out the WGS 10 inch British speakers. If you want a greenback type of vibe go with the Green Beret, or maybe the ET10 or Retro10 suit your ear better. Sound clip examples are on the siteHello all,
I am new to the forum and am anxiously awaiting my first Phaez. I'm getting a 50 watt el34 Duotone AFD/Corina and I can't wait!!
My question is what speakers?
I've got a few different speaker cabs: 5150 slant cab, mojotone with Webers (not a fan of the Webers) but I'm trying to figure out what speakers will do the amp the most justice. I'm a big fan of the whole in your face marshall sound if that helps narrow down the speaker suggestions.
I've got an empty deep 410 cab I'd love to populate (hard to beat that 10" speaker punch).
Thanks in advance and am glad to be here!!
Hey Fellow Phaez owners,
Just wanted to say thanks for all the great info I've learned about Randy's great amplifiers from this group over the last couple years. I'm thinking of selling my Corona/Asheville Duophonic only because I have another similar amp and I want to order a McClane, per the clips I've heard are amazing and I don't have an amp with that circuit/vibe. I paid 1050$ U.S. last year thought I'd check with you all to see what is a fair selling price.... Thanks for your help and again for all the great Phaez info.

Hey Deftone, I hope you are having a great summer. Yeah, I was thinking If I sell I'd post for 800 or so. I really want to play a McClane... I would love to have Randy's interpretation of the TWreck amp. Thanks for the post and I wish you great playingYou bought it new for $1050? Wattage is a factor in price. Keep in mind outside of MLP, Phaez is not exactly a household name, so IMHO you probably won't be getting more than $1050. Nice looking cab, though. Cool amp.
