I'm now well into the little all tube "studio" amps/heads etc.......
My collection so far :
We have :
A Grainger (Epiphone) Valve Junior - 5Watt with full mod kit fitted
An Orange Tiny Terror - 15Watt
AXL combo - 15 watt
I was looking for a small amp for using/leaving in the conservatory for practising and i asked in Johnny Roadhouse (Manchester) that i repair for. Danny and Paul showed me/let me borrow the usual Marshall/Laney/Roland etc etc etc small tranny amps........ all sounded sh1t.
I spotted the AXL from across the room and asked about it - "Sh1T" they all said, so i took it and tried it.......... AWESOME............ just one AX7 in the pre amp but it has that real nice ZZ Top/ACDC tube crunch going on........
John being a thoroughly nice guy and a good mate of mine let me have it for £35 - New! Bargain of a lifetime.......
I've gigged with it - no miking up needed - seriously!
I gigged on Saturday night with the Tiny Terror - fantastic!
I have a 5150 head, JSX head, 2 Boogie combo's and these little amps ROCK!
Anyone else turned on by biggest ain't best??????
