Re: Small Tube Combo for Travel
I used to own a little Marshall JCM601 1x12 combo........I had to sell it to fund my SLO purchase, but I intend to get another soon. It was 60 watts (2 EL34's, 4 12ax7's) and was a GREAT sounding amp. It could get loud enough to jam with a drummer, yet still sounded awesome at lower volumes, and recorded great using the DI out. I truly miss mine for playing around the house, etc. Oh, and it had the most luscious reverb unit. I used to put a Boss SD-1 in front of it for a tiny extra boost over the overdrive channel for leads, and it was just dripping with tone. I should also mention that the clean channel was just like that on the jcm2000's,,,,nice and clean and warm. Nothing can touch my Soldano for gigging or loud band rehearsals, but the JCM601 was irreplaceable for playing and recording around the house.
