Asking opinions from techs/guitarists about a go-to completly
off the shelf combo tube amp for classic country and blues. Something you
could drop by a music store and pick up for under a grand without any
tweaks for several gigs, plug and play. No tube changes, speaker changes,
or tech tweaking, just a working amp with some reverb and 50 watts or
less. Opinions? Thanks.

Super Reverb Re-issue.

I agree, given the above constraints. But HONESTLY, you're doing
yourself a disservice. Shop for a GOOD silver face, and have a tech go
through it. It'll stand up to gigging MUCH better than a reissue, and
it'll sound better. One thing a lot of guys don't understand: a
blackface Super Reverb sounds thin next to a silver face. The Silver
Face can be modified to black face, to the degree that you want. The
Silver Face has a beefier output transformer.

But if you MUST have a walk-away new amp for under a grand, try the
Super Reverb reissue. If you want a better sounding, more reliable
amp... Get a silver face WITHOUT the mids control in the normal channel
(the one with the mids control is the sterile sounding ultralinear high
power design, avoid it, it does NOT break up like a Super Reverb should).

Why do you have to give advise, people specifically say they don't
want???

It boggles my mind.

Listen carefully Jim, NOT EVERYONE IS A DIY'R. NOT EVERYONE WANTS TO
BUY A BROKEN CAR AND FIX IT UP. NOT EVERYONE WANTS TO BUY A "FIXER
UPPER" HOUSE.

D'you get it????
