  • I bought a new map this weekend and it may be one of teh best maps I've evAr had! 111







    soooOo it's a Reebes 12Volt combo and it is really a surprise how touch senstive it is. I touched it to pick it up and an arm came flying out teh back and slapped me!



    Anyway, it's 12 volts, with one 12Ax7 and 2 EL84 power to0bz. The cabinet is baltica Birch and really kind of big, but not too heavy. The 12 inch speaker fits in there with lots of spare rooom around it. It has a high and lowlife input and interactive bass, treble and mid control along with the volume. They offer a built in power soak but I don't see this map needing one .... it's kind of loud wide open and not killer loud like a Marshall 2061x 20W or something like that.



    The weird thing is, it came with a WGS 50W ceramic speaker which I thought was a cheap-o speaker, so I ripped it outta there and installed a Celeston Gold Fired her back up and while she sounded good, I think the WGS sounded better for some reason. It had cleaner tone to it and it broke up later in life The Gold broke up earlier and compressed more ..... so I'm liking the dynamics with the GWS. The cone and doping looks top notch and they are made in teh USA, so not bad at all really.



    Finally, lastly, I stuffed and Amperex Bugel boy in the front end and that was the ticket for THAT! I think the JJ EL84s sound pretty darn good, so I left em alone.



    It's really a great map. I got it for a measly $600 locally, so that was even better.





    Thank you, that will be all for now I may poast pics later on if I find some spare time.







    ok, everybody, I hope you have a good day today and just remember only YOU can prevent forest fires!

      Sounds like a vintage steam-powered car amp.



      No offense intended, but (see above) . . .

                        yeap, The 12 is like shoved over moar on one side, so I'm thinking 2 x10 would probably work. It wieghts only about thoity poundz, so it'x not like it will give you a hernia or anything







                        I need a cover for it!
