• Guys, we've spent considerable money converting the Les Paul Forum to this new XenForo platform, and we have ongoing monthly operating expenses. THE "DONATIONS" TAB IS NOW WORKING, AND WE WOULD APPRECIATE ANY DONATIONS YOU CAN MAKE TO KEEP THE LES PAUL FORUM GOING! Thank you!

a big stage amp guaranteed to piss off the foh sound person.
kind of has a, not sure how to describe it, a nasaly sound. high mids emphasized.

Who needs a reverb tank anyway? You describe it well JT, somewhat nasaly high mids emphasised. Friggin thing will make you deaf. Personally I'll take the '59 Bassman. It doesn't lay waste to those little hairs inside my cochlea quite as efficiently So, WADR to Mr. Richards and Mr. Bonamassa, I say NO GOAT. I'm on record saying NO GOAT to the Deluxe Reverb as well. The '59 Bassman reigns supreme! All hail the '59 Bassman!

Yes, it's loud, very loud. However, the one late 50's HPTT that I have used was anything but nasally sounding. I've also never played a Bassman that I have preferred over this thing.

I have a 1960 Brown Super. Wife friendly, the tone is very interactive, killer harmonic vibrato ( I think it’s vibrato- might be trem) and when hit with pedals does everything short of metal. I can sit for a long time with a guitar and jus mess with it organically. Oh- and a presence knob. Vital.
