@bobdoes: there are a plethora of options. How loud? A small gigging amp, or mainly for practica and recording? Fender-, Vox-, or Marshall- style? Or other? What was the original amp, were you happy with sound/performance? Are you sure you don't want to just fix that one?

Laurel had an xrated drive in movie theater off rte 1 well into the 1980s it was semi visible to ( ahem) non paying customers under a certain age who were willing to drive an old car full of likeminded 'interested' cinema goers of the teenage persuasion into a precarious situation requiring a four wheel drive mentality and a can do attitude

@p-90.. oh yeah.. just realized how loaded this question is.. I got a lot to consider.. and nahh.. sorta wanted it to die.. It use to make a loud hum and if I punched the top like the fonz it would stop and work fine.. well I fonz'd it for the last time last night.. a LOUD low hum, a bright flash of light/sparks in the ventilation area and all the lights dimmed and died.. and I jsut stared blankly and sadly..

Telly Savalas ever cover this song?

but now I get to research amps and go amp shopping!!
Avatar 11:05am PKNY:

This a *really* long take of "Who Loves You" for a 45...what's the running time? Was this before they started releasing disco records on 12 inch, hence the 45 version?

@bobdoesthings Gear questions are always loaded and opinions so often make it worse. So here's my opinions. It somehow seems pedestrian, but I swear by my Blues Jr. Nice clean sound with a pretty broad sonic range. I'm mostly a rhythm player.I've got a friend who made miraculous sounds out of a Vox ACT4TV. it's a 1x10 He's a more aggressive player than me and it worked perfectly for him. More mid-range than the fender.

  11:10am P-90:

@bobdoes: what make/model was it? there are some great bang-for-buck budget 12' amps these days, if you really want to do it right there is also a brisk trade in used "boutique" amps built by hand in small shops.
Avatar 11:10am bobdoesthings:

@velvet -ahh thanks. i think I was looking at that vox last night.. gotta narrow down to a few and go out and play a bunch of them to really figure it out
  11:10am Brendan:

@bob. Look for one that has an 11 volume setting.

Yay Hugh!!

Poly's last release was in 2011. The year she died. Got quite a bit of play on BBC6Music, I seem to remember.
Avatar 11:11am bobdoesthings:

@p-90 - the amp I had was alright.. but I want more.. It was a marshall valvestate 2000 avt50.. I think one of those "half tube/half solid" amps..?
Avatar 11:11am Claw!:

@Brendan - That is very sound advice.

Props to Sonny Knight to giving the drummer a whole *lot* on this!
  11:16am Brendan:

Not entirely fond of the valvestate amp sounds flat/ boxy even with reverb up... Not a natural sounding reverb .
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:16am listener monica:

jeez that down by the river was so much better than neil's.
  11:17am P-90:

@bob: Oh, you can do much better than that!!!
Like you say, just as well, it's a chance to trade up to something much better. I suggest you start by looking at the wide field of 15-30 watt "Vox-style" amps that are available, there are even a number of the that switch from 15 or even 8-10 watts up to 30. Great for getting big all-tube tone at low volumes. Do look around for what's for sale "used", too.
  11:18am Brendan:

Joe - git down with your bad self
  11:18am P-90:

@bob: there's also a zillion small "Fender-style" amps.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:20am coelacanth:

hey,P-90,any suggestions on brands for those "vox style" amps?
Avatar 11:21am bobdoesthings:

@p-90 , yeah for sure.. I got some exploration to do for sure! Thanks for all the help.

@ Fish - yeah, Vox!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:25am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Vox for the aggressive guitarist? Interesting.
I've recently become acquainted w/ the Marshall valvestate - & understand these estimations you give...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:26am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...despite life-long dreams of Marshall-dom...yerknow...
Avatar 11:27am V Priceless:

hear lotsa good stuff about Orange, too, but no first-hand experience.
  11:28am Brendan:

@bob - its also good to verify that your dealing with good salespeople who wont fly off the handle. A good test is walk into the establishment early - when then unlock the door--go directly to the largest nastiest looking amp and turn it to 10 and really explore the sound space.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:28am coelacanth:

yeah V that's what a google search is trying to tell me!...but keep in mind that i'm really a soundscape person and probably shouldn't spend too much money on something a skilled guitarist would make good use of!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:28am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Ooh - Orange - beloved of Stoner Metallers. Different sizes?
Wish Marcel M in on this amp chat maybe?

Yes. I came to the playlist the see if it was Steve Martin

@ Fish - tiny Vox tube amp - great if you don't need big power, plus it looks cool: www.voxamps.com...

V -ha! i was just looking at the ac4. it may be perfect for me. (since the only drummer i'm playing with cannot play drums simultaneously!)
...i just want a different sound to compliment the small "Mars all" bass amp.
Avatar 11:39am bobdoesthings:

@brendan - it's also helpful to play the most loud, dissonant, and angressive riffs I know too right?

I think Arthur Russell faked his own death, because there is a new CD almost every month by him.

I say this with all due respect. He's more prolific than most living artists.

@Cecile: Eventually they'll run out of archives, but it's nice that they keep finding worthwhile material.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:41am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Everybody's got a Fender amp. Because reasonable & not bad. Interesting these amps that switch Wattage depending on whether practice or noise competition mode...
Avatar 11:41am Cecile:

it's very true, Joe!
  11:42am P-90:

@amp shoppers:
there's a lot of articles/webpages like these, you can read a bunch of them toget a sense of what's out there. BUT you gotta play through the amp yourself of course, before you buy. Again, it really pays to see what's used in your area.



Avatar 11:43am bobdoesthings:

@p-90 - nice, thanks!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:43am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Yeah Thx P-90.
  11:45am Brendan:

@bob depends on the sales associate . You can ask if the like decaf or regular, that should give you a feel for the soundscape you are going for.
