@cybermgk: What's your take on the mini Valve Kings?
small tube---hey I dont have asmall....oh AMP right o.k. almost started a fight there ya did
Here's my favorite small tube amp. It's the Gibson GA-5 Les Paul Reissue Class A Hand Wired in North Carolina for Gibson by MojoTone. It shares the same circuit and manufacturer with the DrZ Mini Z and the Bad Cat Mini Cat. Awesome full gain little amp. When I push my Les Pauls through this amp it brings out the best in everything,. Awesome little Amp.
Awh damn man...........thats just fooking gorgeous.....
Rear view of the GA-5 Les Paul. I just love this amp. It's awesome.
Thanks. It has quite a few mods, and the JENSEN P8R 25W really brought it all together. You can get them on eBay for $600, and they're worth every penny.
I just looked on eBay, and there's a GA-5 Reissue like mine with upgrades including Speaker upgrade for $450, and that is a steal. Search on eBay for "Gibson GA-5". That's a lot of amp for $450. If I wasn't working towards a different piece of gear I'd jump on it so I could Mike into the PA in stereo at our gigs. A little differing tones on our Klipsch PA would replace my Fender Twin. Plus it's be easier to transport two 25 pound amps. I may get it anyway.
This is the smallest tube amp that I have
Peavey Classic 30 with Eminence The Wizard speaker
Sounds pretty decent but I use my other amps more
heres tonites selection
I'm really enjoying my DST Engineering U-84 TNT. 2 watts of EL84 goodness, and drives that Sovtek 2x12 real nice.
Damn,can i come over and play lol.love ur taste in guitars and gear.drool worthy
Can I sniff the Lacquer Thinner?????
Thank you. You're way too kind. If you're ever in the Boston area, you can definitely visit and play with and talk about guitars over an adult beverage or two.
I can probably also scrounge up some acetone, epoxy, model airplane glue, and mineral spirits too, if that's what you fancy.
Do you want to see what's to the left of this photo, out of view?
Man looks like a Guitar workshop complete with guitars and amps.
and yes whats to left whats to right!
I'll have to work on some pictures of the right side. But to the left is one of my projects that seems to be taking forever. It's tough since I don't work as a machinist any more.
holy moly,that a early iron head Sportster ??? i had a 1970 ELCH long time ago.shifter was on the right hand side. thats a 900 CC engine ?? sweet
hell its a flat head.love the straight pipes.all i ever run lol
JOHN!!!! Stop making my life look like crap! lol
Now I am depressed I will take that model airplane glue now please.......
Great looking project Sir. That would be a blast to rattle around Boston on and hit a few Irish Pubs
750 cc K-Model. That chasis is for a '59 KR (ball bear race version of that motor). The engine is on the workbench next to the skate sharpener in the second photo. The engine in the frame is a '56 KH (850 cc) for mock up. I also have a '54 KHR and '55 KHK motors, along with two more chassis. I'd like to get at least one running and back on to the race track again. Having a second running as a bobber would be icing on the cake. Having the third running and set up as a flat tracker would be the bees knees.
Cool beans. I'm more of a Triumph guy but those are really neat bikes.
They remind me, I did see a Harley the other day I really honking admired - and the iron butt of the fellow riding it - Knucklehead, hardtail, single seat, ape hangers and the requisite straight pipes. Only thing missing from my "mind's eye" perfect chopper was a set of springer forks.
