Did you achieve the soaring, fuzzy, echoed-out solo on “The Sparrow” by doubling it with a synth? Hinds: "That’s a Dunlop Jimi Hendrix Octavio pedal through an Ibanez Tube Screamer over a Monster Effects Mastortion pedal into a Fender Princeton Reverb. It sounds doubled, but it’s not."more
The reissues fix a lot of original issues like notoriously violent and unpredictable volume taper. Don't let the wattage fool you, this thing bites back! I've struggled to find a gig this won't serve, certainly given a quality PA with good monitoring. This, for practical reasons, though has now become a home/studio amp. Given shipping expenses, I largely go out with a digital rig now, but there are times I long for this little baby to be shouting at me from the backline. It's one of those amps where you go direct with your guitar, dial in some reverb and just let the notes ring. It's a delight.
