    Lovepedal half watt vintage amp, Bell and Howell cab with 7 inch speaker - maybe 8 inches. Gibson Les Paul Jr double cut with Kent Armstrong HP90 pick-up. Plugged straight into amp - no effects pedals. Each section has the volume of the amp turned up a little more than the previous.

    The speaker cab is from an old movie projector. It's ineffiecient, so it's a wonderful sounding low volume speaker. with the half watt amp it really is a perfect living room volume.

    I found the speaker cab at www.my-music-store.com in golden valley.
    they get cool old gear once in a while.

    These cabs can be found on ebay once in a while too. there are a few variations. I saw a 12" speaker cab on ebay. it looked like mine except larger and brown instead of green. search Bell and Howell.

    The little amp was bought from www.lovepedal.com their website is constantly changing and hard to navigate and find things. you might need to send them an email to see if they still make the half watt amps or if they'd make one for you. I like it much much better than the Smokey amp. it runs on either two 9 volt batteries. I have a power adapter connected to mine.
