20 March 2017 - 01:44 PMHi All, it's been awhile since I posted a new piece of "gear," because...well, it's been awhile since I GOT a new,
or new to me, piece of gear.
While recently visiting my favorite music store/dealer, in Wichita (E.M. Shorts), to pick up one of my Ric 12-strings, after
it's yearly maintenance, I wandered into the "amp room," and spotted this beauty, just willing me, to "Take Me Home!"
It was in there, in consignment, at a very reasonable price. But, Me being ME, I asked them to call the guy, and see
if he would take just a bit less, for it. After some "back and forth," he finally, and begrudgingly agreed! So, take
it home, I did! I must say, this amp is a fire breathing beast!! Awesome! And, it's in "Like New" condition, with cover and 2 button foot switch, as well.
Cheers, from one Very Happy Vibrolux owner.
Nothing is as nice as Fender clean. Love my 2 Fender amps.

My friend Caleb is recording an album and in the midst of it his amp died and was not worth fixing. So begins a voyage through various guitar shops, his combing through various forums for answers (without posting because he is THAT shy) in his quest for:
The Amplifier that will be with him through adulthood and which will be used for recording mostly!
He has a Fender Deluxe at the moment that sounds awesome (just enough sparkle with plenty of bass) and breaks up perfect at volume 3, so if he wasn't making a record it would be decided that he'd keep it, BUT when recording with the Deluxe, the microphone is up to the speaker and it picks up more breakup than is needed and at 2 there is not enough saturation. Need a bit more clean ...
The Fender Twin is...too much headroom unless you push it to ear-splitting levels (especially because he loves humbuckers).
He is thinking about re-tubing the Reverb as a solution to gain headroom, but is afraid the character of the amp (its Fenderness) will change. Sort of like a nose job changes a girl possibly for the worse!!!!
Is there an amp that is not vintage (still made) that he could try that has enough bass and not too much sparkle AND headroom? (VOX has too much sparkle and orange is lackluster for his taste)
Suggestions? Thanks in advance.
Contact Eurotubes they will sort you out.

No not really, put a NASCAR driver in shoulder pads and let him square up against a 250 lb linebacker, it is really an activity like Bowling or Golf or as you say across the Pond Gof.
19 March 2017 - 05:27 AMI saw a vid of Chuck Berry schooling the **** out of Keith Richards...looking for it I found this gem. Him talking about his early influences and playing. SO COOL!!
