The age old question - solid state or valve?
Have modelling amps reached the point where they effectively mimic true
valve characteristics convincingly???
The weight factor makes the decision for me. Not worth the lugging and
the valve replacing. It's not like I have roadies.
As for solid state amps I like a Roland Jazz Chorus 120 but they are
bigger and heavier than a Twin Revrb.
My regular amp these days is a 1965 Epiphone EA-50 tube amp.
12 watts with a 10 inch speaker.
I put new caps in it and a Weber speaker.
I use it at rehearsals, mic'ed on stage, unmic'ed at smaller gigs and
Can stay with a loud drummer.
This amp is tone to the bone.
And it weighs 22 pounds..
Thanks,just wondered if the thick glasses brigade has managed to duplicate
the sound of a good valve setup with transistors yet...
