Getting an amp loud isn't a problem for me but why are the old greenbacks needed? Are they some key ingredient to the sound? Or does the voice of that amp just not jive well with other speakers?
Thats just the cab he always uses on his clips. I played mine through all sorts of speakers and it didn't sound like it should. I swapped tubes for what seemed an eternity and still no luck in getting that tone. The hole story is I got it off of e-bay for $900.00 and I think the seller may have saboteged it out of sour grapes since I got it on the cheap. Or the old greenies contribute greatly to the tone. I'm not saying David Bray isn't talented or that he does bad work, I'm just lending my experience.
Here is the clip of the amp before David Bray sent it out to the original owner. It had the re-work/mod II not the mod I as I mentioned in my previous post.
This clip is me playing the same amp. I'm not as good a player as David Bray mind you. I cant remember the guitar I played but I do know the gain was dimed and the volume was around 2. Rum and coke influenced.
