  • Lesser-known amps of the past

    What are some less-than-brand-name amps that you recall?

    How about the Russian -made Novik?

          The Carvin X- 100 B, it has a Fender Twin Reverb clean channel, to die for.
          The Overdrive channel is not as hot as a Mesa-Boogie Mark 3 or a Marshall JCM 800, but the X-100 B can be made to sound like those two aforementioned amps, but put a dynamic over drive / distortion pedal in front and you have an amp that is more dynamic than the Mark 3 or the JCM 800.
          How many guitarists does it take to screw in a lightbulb ? Five , one to screw it in , hit the switch and four to sit around bragging how much better they could have done it !!!! 😱👹😲

            When I was 15 or so, mid 60's had a Rheem Califone amp. One of the early transistor amps ("solid state? must be better" general thought of public in those days)
            I was kicked out of music class for passing notes...
            Tuned out, turned in and dropped off
