Used to be a band from Akron, OH called The Rubber City Rebels. The
week after Bon died we did a show with them at The Starwood in West
LA... these guys debuted their tribute to him, called of course, "Bon
Voyage". Very cool indeed. Wish I had a recording of it.
Yeah back then I was really caught up in the power guitar thing. Had
an eardrum splitting Ampeg VT-22 and a 60's SG. Guess what band
from down under I idolized?
I was using a V-4 stack at the time... but a year later we all went to
combos. I "downsized" to a VT-22. Maybe the best sounding amp I've
ever owned. As usual, I wish I still had it.
Yeah I wish I had that thing. It weighed a ton with Altec-Lansing 12s
The V4 is the same amp, worked one over a month or so ago. But the
customer wanted to use it for a bass head. Not enough reserve for a
clean punch sound the amp was designed more for crunch.
I had a V4-B that I played bass thru in a band in the 80s. With a PV 2-15
cab. That was LOUD.
I didn't say it wasn't loud, just not what the owner expected. I
plugged him into a 300 watt SS SVT reissue on a 4x10 cab and
showed the difference in clean punch opposed to the V4's crunchy
punch. Some like the latter and play bass through Marshalls like Lemmy
for one. WHen I played I used a BBE 383 preamp into a Crown Microtech
1000 out either a 4x10, 4x10 + 1x18 or a 4x12 + 4x10. Never even
warmed the amp up most of the time.
well, i thought the V4-B sounded good with my P-bass, at the time. Did a
lot of gigs with it. Long time ago. I might try it now and think, god this
