  • Actually today I played a Fender Blues Deluxe Reissue....omg it was heavenly...I played it with a Deluxe Ash Strat...(yes people I drove 30 minutes back to GC to play that guitar for 20 minutes :D) and it was amazing...the overdrive is nice too if you want that old fender amp sound...

    I'm like obsessed with amps though...I'm in love with my Traynor YCV40WR but I still want a Rivera Suprema 55, Fender Blues Deluxe Reissue, and sometype of matchless combo :D

    oh and who ever was looking to get an Epiphone Casino...I played it today, it was REALLY nice, especially for the price

    My dad has an old tube champ 12. Traynors are nice amps as well.

    My old physics teacher was GIVEN an original, Kalamazoo, Gibson Casino. He found out it was made somewhere around '68. I myself have never played them but they sound amazing. Oh, to the Fender Amp thingy, I love them. I LOVE the reverb on them, it's amazing.

    yeah, im a die hard all tube powered fan. i cant stand solid state, its just so fake and terrible sounding to me. Tubes sound so much more raw and beautiful. the warm creamy tube distortion i get is euphoric to me. ahhh i love fender amps.

    the vibro king is heavenly. I'm a big super reverb fan and the new Bassman LTD makes me melt.
    My Girlfriend said to me..."How many guitars do you need?" and I replied...."How many pairs of shoes do you need?" She got really quiet.

    My favourite has to be the new Twin. I played a used one of those and holy shit! If I find a used one for under 1k thats my amp.

    I just found one for $750 used......

    I'm gunna look into it, because I played the Deville and really liked that and have heard that this is even better.

    I can probably get it for lower than $750....hopefully.

    You might actually end the search! I may have as well, I played a Twin and loved it... so I'm now looking for a used one.

    Ahhh,

    This one was on there too:

    http://toronto.craigslist.org/msg/178822119.html

    You could get that for cheaper for sure....especially since it needs new tubes.

    Ya! If I can jump on one of the newer ones for about that I'll go for it. I liked the new one because the distortion sounded fantastic. It wasn't a reissue.

    Those are also beckoning... I'm a sucker for that Fender Clean tone... I figured that if I got the traynor I'd want something else. If I get the twin, that is the amp.

    I dunno, that I'd want to upgrade eventually... I still need to try everything again. There are sooo many options out there, but I've narrowed it down between a used Twin or a Traynor.... I'll have to give them another whack.

    They didn't have the Blues Deluxe when I went in tonight......:(

    The guy was such an idiot.....he was like "I think that's it right there" (pointing to a Blues Junior) and I was like "oh really??" (as if I didn't know) and then he thought it was the Bassman....I hate going in there man, som many of the guys are such pricks who aren't helpful at all.

    That's why I love it here so much.

    They had the Blues Deluxe in the computer for $799 + tax

    The one I found was used for $700.....I can get that lowered for sure, I'm hoping to like $550.

  • I went buy a local music chain here in Atlanta called Ken Stanton Mucic and played through Fender Super-Sonic full stack they had set up with a Fender Strat and a Boss DS-2 Turbo Distortion petal it was one of the best if not the best tube amps I've played through. They are pretty pricey but I'm gonna try and get it the next time I have cash. People can say what they want about Marshalls I've always liked Fenders the best.

    I think I may agree with you.

    I was considering a Casino. How's the action, really easy to move on the neck? Not too fat?

    Every single day I get just slightly more pissed off at my Traynor Custom 80.

    I'm getting really tempted just to trash the fucker and pick up a Blues Deluxe RI or a DRRI, an older Mentone KOB and a Seymour Duncan Twintube. :mad:

    The blues deluxe is a great amp for the money, but it's not going to do the high-gain stuff. I'm WAY over that at this point in my playing, so I don't even care. I only need one channel.

    Why are you getting mad at the Traynor?

    Why are you getting mad at the Traynor?


    I've been playing it for about 4 years now, and it's a great amp, but I need a change before I kill it.

    I think it has to do with all the expensive stuff I've been toying with lately, and I can't make it dial in the same tones. It makes me :( ;) .

    It's mainly because I moved in May, and I can't turn it up loud enough anymore to get it to sound good. The 80 watt has a master volume, so you can get really saturated tones even at a low volume and it's manageable. However, the responsive tube overdrive I really like, I can't get at these volumes.

    For example, to get a great tube tone, I'll take the lead channel, turn off boost, put the gain at 4, volume at 6, and the master at 5. Now, that's pretty loud, but it is extremely responsive to my guitar. It also pisses off the neighbours, and I can't afford another noise complaint. :( I just can't get the tones anymore.

    I found with the Fender amps, I could get similar, or very close to at low volumes, or with just a push of an od pedal.

    the DRRI takes pedals quite well generally and may do the high gain thing well with the right pedal.

    but you'll need an attentuator to get it saturated on it's own. it breaks up around 4 (depending on your pickups) but that's still very loud.

    my most favourite amp ever. i wish i had a wall full of them.

    personlly, i think it's miles above the hot rod and blues deluxes as far as clarity and range.

    The one I played was slightly used so the previous owner could have done work on it but the action was pretty low, it was nice, and the neck was thin which is what I loved about it

    yeah I think I'm going to get a Blues Deluxe RI, I'll let you guys know how I like it :) give me 8 weeks
