"All basses going into this too..'71 Ampeg VT-22"
In an interview with Consequence of Sound, Carlson mentions: "I just bought an Ampeg BT22, a 2×12 that I use, but it’s so heavy I haven’t taken it out yet. I’m going to put wheels on mine [laughs]." The B in BT22 must be misspelled.
This is a great sounding amp with active EQ with a semi parametric mid EQ. The low end is amazing. I have the head instead of the combo. It has the 7027A power tubes.
you have a V4? heads up, 7027As are just an old, robust type of 6L6GC. These amps have high plate voltages that most modern GCs can't handle, but with7072As being scarce on the ground the JJ 6L6 will handle the abuse and sound just like the old 7027As.
No, I actually have a VT-22 HEAD. I don't have the combo with 2 x 12 speakers. It has new old stock 7027a.
