Session Sessionette is cool.
I love my old HH VS Musician. Massively loud. Early breakup? No but it has an overdrive option which is pretty cool..
These were used by tons of artists in their day..

an older peavey and if you're going for the sound of those guys (thumbs up) get your guitar tech to have a look at it and tell him to make it bullet proof. I had an old peavey (used a jpn jazzmaster) when I lived near Windsor, Canada and I continually destroyed the amp doing the type of sound I think you're aiming for and eventually I showed the guitar guy the type of thing I was doing to the amp and he set it right and it never blew again.

btw, take a listen to flying saucer attack

+1 on the ZT Lunchbox, those amps are LOUD. Tech 21 amps are nice too.

Bulletproof reliable, great spring 'verb, enough volume to compete with almost anything and still take your fucking head off.

Nice amps, but the problem is that the prices they go for here (Australia) are fucking ridiculous - I may as well save up an extra hundo or two and get one of those newer tube Fenders, or even an old Twin. It's the same with old Sunns, especially in a post-Sunn 0))) world.


Yeah, I bought a "vintage" one about a year ago, paid probably much more (1k) than I should have, but then I've always wanted one so :shrug: ..just should've given in and bought one back when they went for $400..

There's a second hand music store near my uni that carries a bunch of shit like this, I should check in soon.


Are you in Melbourne, by any chance? And if so, you talking about the Swop Shop on Elgin, down from Melb Uni?

Edit: oh, and +1 on the older Peaveys.
Years back I had an Austin 400, 2x12" + horn, spring 'verb, originally designed for lap steel players, great amp.

Yes and yes. Excellent establishment (Swop Shop, not Unimelb).

best solid state amps ever in my opinion, and i've played quite a few (in addition to the tubies of course!)

whether "bass" model or "guitar" model, they absolutely rule!



and stay away from the new production "acoustic" brand heads and amps. i'm not sure what they do well other than coffee shop struggling artist bass tone, but they are a far cry from their vintage counterparts.

My Fender Deluxe 1 x 12 is my workhorse. It's awesome for metal and hard rock. It has clean and distortion. No fancy shit. Distortion is 1 On/Off switch, Gain, Volume, Bass/Mid/High.

It has a spring-reverb that I never use as well.

It sounds so good I don't use a pedal.

It's so loud I've never actually turned it up all the way. oops

And it's portable enough that I used to carry it on my shoulder, as well as my guitar, to the bar about 8 blocks away for open-mic nights. (YMMV)

I get everything from nasally punk to Bottom-Heavy Chugga-Chugga.

these are legendary for being awesome and crushingly loud, lightweight too, kinda rare though

the sunn beta lead, unless you're going to be CRUSHING it in larger venues, really needs an attenuator. that thing is so loud. it sounds like shit though (imho) when it's not dimed. and if you do use a sunn beta and crush it, please get one of these and take it next level.
