New Old Amp Day
On the weekend I was helping a mate clear out his garage. Under a pile of junk, crap and dust I spottes some shiney black tolex.. I started digging.
Someone had left it here cos it didn't work, I was told. I asked if i could take it... yes i could.
So after 5 or so years of no use, and lord knows what living in it, I plugged it in expecting it to either fry in front of me, or not work at all... to my suprise 2 12AX7's & 4 EL34's lit up. I plugged in my Slash LP, turned up to 8 and was in 70's heaven... not to mention a little bit deaf.
This is a handmade (made by Mick Samson in Newcastle Australia), seemingly original, mid 70's Baez Master Volume.
Based on and comparable to the JTM 45. People who know these things suggest they may even be better than their Marshall counterpart. Beautifully simple, warm and powerful.
I'm thinking either a Tube Screamer or a Fulltone OCD to give it some oomf. Any other suggestions?
