    Two newer additions, '80s Roland Cube 20 and a Peavey Delta Blues, both sound Grrrrrrrrreat. The Peavey is my big gun at the moment, i've yet to be able to crank it up past three......loud! 20190202_121112_2.jpg

    Now that you've really had a chance to dig into it, what's your current thinking on Nutube tech?

    Got three. The Supro 1688tn is my original amp (bought in '66). original speakers, old American glass. The next is The Mutt, chassis built by Lil Dawg (chassis #1, Jim had just finished it when I contacted him). Fender Tweed Deluxe preamp with a Champ power section and old American glass. Cabinets are a cross between the old Danelectro style and Tweed piggy back and are my own design. I built them with finger-jointed pine and added some Weber speakers suggested by Jim Weber. He and I had a long discussion one night about using a selector switch on the speakers, with 3 settings, the 10" (8 ohms), the 12" (8 ohms) or both (16 ohms). Really opens up tonal possibilities.

    The last, and newest, is the Peavey Classic20. I've owned several "tweed" Peaveys over the years, love them. And I missed having something with EL84 power tubes. All the bells and whistles many of the new, low power amps have, I won't go into that now. Just retubed with old American glass, what a difference. The speaker cabinet is another one of mine with a set of 1953 Jensen P12Qs that I purchased to put into the Supro, when the need arose, but they needed a home. The Gretsch tag was from my logo collection. Great match with the head cab. Power-wise, fits nicely between the Supro and the Mutt.

    honestly, i can't find anything i don't like about it. it is a little tinny at low volumes, but once you get it cranked
    a little, it really sounds nice for such a small package. i played it in a "band" setting sat night, hooked to my
    blackstar 2x12, and it had zero issue keeping up. we jammed probably 3hrs and it performed perfectly.

    I have a Mustang II V2 and a Mustang III V2. I'm still trying to figure them out. These are a big step up from my Squier Champ 15.

    I may take some grief for this, as I understand it Line 6 is either lampooned or frowned upon in some circles, but it was a gift, it sounds decent enough, will certainly be loud enough, and I can’t afford that double Marshall stack anyway. Spider IV 15.

    My young grand daughter poked a hole in one of the speakers of my Roland Micro Cube so while it was all pulled apart I decided to make a little Mini Stack out of her. It was a fun project.

    Very clever John. What size are the speakers?

    Thank you Ss, they are 4". It's normally equipped with four speakers but I only used 3 and I'm gonna change them out to a 10".
