  • Official Matamp/vintage-Orange/Electric owners thread

    EDIT: Clips updated with newer ones.

    I had a thread going about just my amp recently but I want to have a place where all owners of these amps or people looking to purchase one can congregate and talk. Post links to ones for sale you discover. Discuss pedals that work well with them. Talk tech/repairs. Post clips and videos, etc. Suggest tube and speaker pairing options. You know the drill. All I can offer for content right now is this that I recorded recently as an attempt to better my recorded sound:

    And today recorded this to see if my little digicam could capture more of how the amp sounds in the room:


    Now add to it!

        Holy crap sell me that Meathead right now. I've been trying to find one for ages. Ever since I saw another Youtube clip of one through a GTL.... wait, was that your Youtube video too?

          Thanks! Then let me add this.. digicam recorded version of The Chosen Few.

          Sorry there's so much shaking and that rattling noise in both videos. The amp's sound was literally bouncing my camera around on the dresser. I put a pillow on the floor in front of it in case it fell off like some other stuff has.

              How loud did you have that thing in the room? That poor camera is almost convulsing.

              I'd love to have an old Electric/Matamp, but my trusty Peavey VTM will have to do for now.

                No, that wasn't me. (Was it pulled from youtube? I can't find it now...)

                D*A*M pedals seem to have this crazy cult following. They never have anything in stock. I was lucky enough to stumble onto the D*A*M forum just as they announced an ebay auction for a few of their pedals. I nabbed one of meatheads. All of the pedals sold in SECONDS.

                Anyway, it seems to pair really well with my GTL. You should get one if you can... it would sound killer with your electric!

                  The volume was only around 3.5/10. But these put out tremendous low end. As a tip if you're looking for a less expensive Matamp, watch the forums at the official Matamp site. I recently saw a beautiful Matamp "Green" GT120 sell for 650 UK pounds which is about $910. Shipping from the UK would be pricey but it'd still come in at nearly half what they sell for over here.

                    Darn.. Yeah they're really hard to find and sell for more used than they go for new. The Youtube video disappeared at one point. I have no idea if the user deleted it or what. Just a weird coincidence that another Matamp GTL owner with a DAM Meathead also had a clip out there. That clip was the one that started me on the lookout for a GTL. Once I found one for sale, I sold the Matamp Roadster that I owned at the time:


                    As soon as it was sold and I actually wanted to complete the transaction and buy the GTL from the guy selling it, he quit responding to my emails. I spent the next year trying to find a suitable replacement and even tried buying the Roadster back without any luck. When I saw the Electric on Ebay, I bought it immediately. I hated only having a modern high gain amp (Mark III) and missed having a vintage voiced, chainsaw-gain sounding amp.

                          Holy crap sell me that Meathead right now. I've been trying to find one for ages. Ever since I saw another Youtube clip of one through a GTL.... wait, was that your Youtube video too?


                          I had a cutom D*A*M Meathead (1 of 2 Buddhead (pot paint job))....I sold it a while back for $400 or something.

                          I have to say....it was pretty awesome......ballsy in your face uncontrollable fuzz. Not worth...what....$350...they go for now? But cool none the less....

                          This is my contribution!
