From the YT video description... 1957 narrow panel tweed twin (low power). Does that help?
Whew...is it just me? The guitar on the first video sounds really good clean, but I'm not blown away from the crunch tone.
is my Tele benchmark tone.
>>Nachocaster & Tweed Champ (or a SF Deluxe?not safe from this video) but for sure thru a slightly gained morning glory pedal. That’s a perfect warm and shiny clean tone while he plays soft, great dynamics and overtones when he digs in.
Yep - I didn't see that - thanks!
As it's been said before---Leo got it right the first time.
It's amazing how good a Telly sounds through tweed amps. That mid range bump on tweed amps really fattens up a Telly.
Almost like they were meant to be used together!
There's no doubt that *a good* vintage guitar has a sound that is VERY hard to duplicate in a new instrument. Case in point, this Tele. Notice how the pickup cuts through but is still warm and full and never does the "blizzard of nails" that some new Teles can throw at you.
That Pedal Show recently did an episode in which they went to one of London's premier vintage boutique shops and all the guitars there displayed this same amazing attribute.
I like the reference to Naiche
Heh, glad you get that one. The Naiche is the Esquire model, the Cochise is the standard Telecaster...
Well I do live in the town of Cochise in Cochise County. I must say though I remember who Cochise was since I was a young boy on Staten Island.
The low power tweed Twin uses two 6L6 or 5881 power tubes for an optomistic 40 watts. The high power tweed Twin used four 6L6 or 5881 for an equally optomistic 80 watts. They have two input channels - Normal and Bright), Bass, Treble and Presence. Originals had Jensen alnico speakers.
Originals are pricey. My local store has one in, in very good shape, for a mere $25,000. I however, own a Victoria reproduction and it is a really exceptional amp. It is also expensive and currently retails in the $3800 but I paid a LOT less than that for a used one. Victoria has shipped them with different speakers but no surprise, it sounds best with 12" Jensen Alnicos. Victoria rates the amp at 50 watts. It's very well made.
