I love the Acoustic amps. I own 2-260 heads with a 261 cabinet and I never have a problem being heard no matter where I am. The big thing about all the Acoustic amps were they could be heard all the way to the back of the rooms no matter how large the rooms were. And because the amps were so clean, you had to be a good player to play through these amps. I crank the volume to 11 and there would just be clean sound and no distortion. This is another factor that made Acoustic famous. Niceclean and powerful. It blew Marshall, Vox and Fender off the stage.
Just my experience from the 60's. Love my Acoustic. Check out the Acoustic site...
Old thread bumped, OK by me...I've always been a Fender guy, even when I play other amps I'm trying to a get that Fender sound.
I use other amps, and have had a large selection of nothing special but workable stuff, except for the Fenders and the Yamaha G-100-III which really is based on a Solid State version of a twin reverb soundwise.
So, as simple as it is, Fender. the sound of a Showman cranked to 7 or more - in a BIG room!
I get it...that was what I meant about the Yamaha G-100-III. I never got to turn it above 6! It had a standard ass-kicking Yamaha 100 watt power amp from their 80's line of very good PA amps built-in. I got turned on to it by jazz guys that thought it had a warm fat clean sound.
awwww the Fender Showman and BandMaster.. Now I remember the sound of those amps.. wow.. very nice played with a fender mustang... brings back memories...
the only time I had my acoustic wide open was outside for a second.. was curious what it would do... wow.. never turn it that loud again.. we're talking ear bleeds.. When playing, 2 1/2 is fine.. one horn and 2 15" speakers...
No wonder, with the horn too! Ouch!
I own and use a solid state but must say I prefer the tone of my tube amps by far. I use the solid state for practice because the spider jam i have does backing tracks so it is helping me practice. Any time I jam with others... I will goto a tube amp, usually my subway rocket reverb although lately I am really digging my new orange thunder 30 combo.
Those clean SS amps are not everyone's cup of tea.
I went with a spyder III 120w from line 6 and think its a decent amp... I still have it and use it for practice mainly - did play a few shows with it and think it sounded pretty decent...
I bought an Egnater Tourmaster a couple years ago and that has become my primary gig amp - I can coax a decent Marshall tone out of her plus Clean channel 1 gives me a great fender tone (especially with my P-90 special)...
Either way you go I think solid state has its place but personally I dig the Egnater... Well made and very reliable amp... With excellent tones...
I have 2 Tech 21 amplifiers in my gang.
A Trademark 10 and a Trademark 30 LE.
They are both very cool little amplifiers.
Think high quality DI box with a speaker.
Those are supposed to be pretty good amps, like the Pritchard SS amps.
This works for me
How does the "Master Volume with two Gain Controls — Detail (highs) & Body (lows)" on the Vintage Modern work? I've never seen that setup before.
