  • Sell me on/disuade me from a Pitbull 50/CL

    I was planning on getting a used engl blackmore pending the sale of my 5150, but I just found a vht/fryette Pitbull 50/CL on the local craigslist for $1000. Should I hit it? My main requirements are that it has good modern high gain sounds, and that the clean channel plays nicely with fuzz

          If it's an EQ model, that might be a decent price depending on its condition. For a non-EQ model, that's pretty steep.

          For the record, I have an non-EQ model (1997, good condition) that I got for $840 plus shipping. Personally, I do NOT think the amp needs a graphic EQ to sound its best. It's just the GEQ models have higher resale value.

            Tbh the GEQ is way too powerful to be truly useful in most cases. It's kinda hard to find the sweet spot, and the tiniest movement makes big changes. That being said, it sounds GREAT set flat and loud.

              All guitars there are through a pittbull CL 100EQ, including the cleans (in the middle and at the end of 'Miles From the Lightning'). The EQ is in use in each one. Cab is always an ubercab, mic/s vary, ITB treatment is minimal (a bit of EQ, never more than 3db or so). Extremely capable and versatile amp.

                I owned one of these a while back. I don't think the graphic EQ is necessary,...sounds great without it.

                  Thanks! all those clips sound great. I especially like the tone in the first one.

                  Hmm $350 less than the blackmore, I think I might do it

                      You do right. Its rare I use my JVM or powerball over it. (It also completely devoured a 6505+ in A/Bs in my home studio recently).

                              I've got one with the EQ and it's a fantastic amp. I've been meaning to sell it because I lost my job and funds have been getting tighter, but I haven't brought myself to do it yet. Mine is one of the older ones that you could use el34's or 6l6's with... not sure if that's an option on the newer ones. It sounds like a pretty good deal for a grand, but it wouldn't hurt to offer him a little less. All he can do is say no.
