Some great looking rigs I'm seeing!!
Now I'm gasing for a Deliverance to go with my Ultra Lead.
I have never gotten my hands on a VHT/Fryette amp head, but did manage to snag a Valvulator tube buffer and pedal power supply..
Even using it in front of my old solid state amp and pedal board is a pretty big improvement!
Earlier this week, I got some new tubes in the mail to try out in my 50/CL. A pair of EHX 6CA7 power tubes, a balanced Sovtek LPS for the phase inverter, and a few EHX and Chinese preamp tubes to roll through some different slots.
So far I like the different character of the 6CA7 sound, but I'll have to play with settings and louder volumes for a few days before I know if I prefer them to the Winged =C= el34 set I had in there before. Some of that midrange crunch is replaced with more bottom end response and a cleaner/clearer high end, though I think the 6CA7's sound more mushy at very low volumes as a result of that low end extension.
I still need to try some of my spare 6l6's in this amp, and I may pick up a set of Tung Sol el34's to compare as well next time I find a good sale online. I've landed on a pretty magical tube setup in my Ultra Lead, so I'm excited to try and do the same with the 50/CL
What are you using in your Ultra Lead?
EHX in V1 and V3, Chinese in V2, JJ 5751 in V4, JJ 12AT7 and balanced Sovtek LPS for the phase inverter/power amp driver slots, and a matched quad of EHX KT88's
I've previously used a Tung Sol in V1 that was good for high gain sounds, but lackluster on cleans. The EHX or a Sovtek are a good compromise of gain and control IMO.
I love VHT man, i sold my Sig X last fall and regretted it ever since. I heard a rhumor they where gonna release a version 2 at some point in time. Would be time they realease a new head. That and a Deliverence 2 i heard from the same source.
Might be all hey say but never know.
Here is my UL that i will never let go!!!!!
I like the look of the UL with white knobs I was even thinking of painting the "stripes" on my EVH 50w white like you have yours, too!
You, sir, have some fine taste
Lol, thanks man, yeah i have a little white knob fetish it seems. I need to find some small ones to fit on my Peters, they are very close together and the ones i tried where touching together.
Go for the white stripes, it ll look bad ass.
Ultra Lead with white knobs looks great!!
Here is close up when i had my Sig X, damn i miss that amp, sooooo versatile and excelled at every tone it generated. I will get another one at some point:
White knobs are great, i just ordered some for my Friedman, just waiting on it getting updated at Dave's, should be here soon....... I hope........
This thread warms my heart. I have recently completed the collection!
I have a 100CL, 100UL, GP/DI, D120, and a Sig:X. Now if only I could find a D60, I'd be set! Not to mention a FB 4x12.
I just may have to steal the white knob idea for my Ultra Lead
Unfortunately i'm not currently in the market for buying a new amp, but i do appreciate the offer. And i completely agree with all of your points concerning the two amps. I'll take my sig:x over a deliverance any day strictly due to having three channels and an fx loop; that said, the deliverance is probably my favorite amp and would love to have one just for recording purposes.
The PS-2 slays and is very versatile. Here is my Simple Simon rig
Also gives my Kemper tube and cab goodness
I just got a Fatbottom 4x12. Best cab I have ever owned.
Grabbed a 2/50/2 from GC used for a good price. I'm going to pair it with the Mesa Studio Preamp I just got an see how it works. It sounds great through the power section of my Colossus though, so unless the 2/50/2 is way better it'll probably just be going back.
The FatBottom Cabs are sooooooo good!
Compared to...? What other 4x12's have you experience with?
Honest opinion on the Studio Pre?
