Beginning with the 30 March 2010 Royal Albert Hall gig, Pete has used a Lazy J Model 20 amplifier and matching extension cab alongside the Fender Vibro-King amplifiers. (Vibro-Kings appear to also be on line, but shielded behind plexiglass.) The amplifier is a copy of a tweed Fender Deluxe, and are made to order by Lazy J Projects in the UK. The amp is 18 watts, two channels, with one 12? Celestion Blue Alnico speaker.more
In [this interview](http://www.musicradar.com/us/news/guitars/bernard-butler-shows-off-his-guitar-collection-598904/10), Bernard cites the Lazy J 20 as his favorite amplfier. “Phil Harris called and said he’d found the best new amp he’d ever heard. The Lazy J had everything, but with its own character. Plus, it has a voltage control which acts as a master. The Normal and Bright channels affect each other’s tone, even when not in use. I asked Jesse (Hoff, Lazy J maker) to fit a spring and tremolo unit to give me my perfect portable amp. It’s my only amp for Trans. The only problem with my Lazy J is how long I’ll have to wait for a backup.” Bernard Butler on the 2015 McAlmont & Butler tour: https://www.instagram.com/p/-JKAxMOJLn/?taken-by=bernardbutlerofficial "The Lehle Dual feeds my 1964 Vox AC10 Twin and Lazy J J20. The Vox is cross patched between both the normal and vibrato channels. The Lazy J uses the brilliant channel with the normal dialled in equally but not active. 1964 Grey panel Vox AC10 Twin: brilliant channel (high gain), out of low gain into vib/trem channel high gain. The Lazy J normal channel is active and colours the tone even when it is not plugged in."more
"I try to use mostly the straight sound from the Lazy J amps without any pedals. If there was one pedal I could not be without it would be the [ZenDrive](http://equipboard.com/items/hermida-audio-zendrive-overdrive-effects-pedal) that helps put the sound over the top for a really grimy tone that I like for solos." - [Nalle Colt](http://www.pastemagazine.com/blogs/lists/2012/05/14-guitarists-talk-about-their-pedal-boards.html).more
