I visited a friend of mine who owns a beautiful Fender collection, and came home with this. He had it on sale at a very reasonable price because the back panel wasn’t original as well as the reverb pedal, so I decided I couldn’t let it pass. It’s a ‘67 Selmer Vanguard, 15w 12” speaker. Very well equipped, all original Mullards pre and Brimar power tubes (6BR8), original Goodmans speaker. I dragged it down with me at the club I was playing yesterday and put it on stage without even try it . First thing I did it’s been to plug in my ‘64 SG Special and play Astronomy Domine . It’s what I call an “on-off” amp, you plug in and get the tone with minimal tweaking as the controls (2 channels, volume and tone, reverb on both) are not as effective as a Fender or a Marshall. It’s a bit dark sounding (but it gets better if you link the channels), break up nicely at reasonable volume and it fitted perfectly the trebley bridge pickup of my Gibby. Even the sound guy was happy. I never had a Selmer so this is a first time for me. I’ll give it a few rounds with my Gretsch Rally in the next days, for now I really like it. It sounds completely different from any other amp I own. It may never be my main amp, but sometimes it’s good to have some choice of sound. And Psycho Syd would have approved me .
