I dont know how it'll go but 5w its fun, I just bought myself a gold lion 6v6 and Nos mazda 6v6 to try out. btw. It comes stock w JJ 6V6.
Oh man, it looks like someone is playing in stereo or wet-dry!
Is it to early to start asking if it’s ready yet!
Hahahaha just kidding like everyone else we just get excited.
Any chance of this becoming a 1x12 combo? Or can I just buy the chassis and the badge and get a combo cab made for it up here?
I know a lot of people like combos but that significantly up the price. These boutique heads are expensive to start with but in a combo just how big would the market be?
It’s funny you mention your own cab I actually did ask but this is currently how they come. I still hope to find time to fab my own cab but I need to finish an amp stand. Winter is killing my free time this year.
Not for the price I've got the head cab version at...It's just what it is, a 5w head. We were going for price point here, not luxury. Its american built but no special void free birch ply, no Merc Mag tone clone iron. Simple fiber turretboard w mallory series metallized film caps, F&T and Sprague electrolytics. Good stuff all around, but simple, nothing really uber booteek, just honest american craft.
It allows the guitarist a handmade mini tube amp that is all about the guitar and fingers at very low, personal volume levels. These single ended class A amps do not stay clean for very long but between you and a great speaker cab in your studio, or living room its a treat for the ears as a gretsch'r. (fwiw.. I will make you a 110 combo if you
want but the price jumps waaaay up since they are built from scratch in indiana. If we found someone in mexico to build cabs then I could really keep prices low but then you have to play the quantity game, and all my stuff is built one at a time other than pedal boxes that are in batches of 20)
The greatest all in one combo I offer for the money, is the Raygun'59 in a 1x12 combo. 8 watts to 20 watts w swappable tubes, no biasing.. pwr tube trem and reverb. All in one hand built, booteek glory. even the speaker is a california built 75w hemp cone alnico spkr that is gorgeous. Its my other amps that climb up in price because I'm going after a specific circuit and getting it super correct. The Raygun'59 is a tavo mishmash idea of a 59' vox ac30 meets 59' tweed low power amp, I can beg forgiveness in that amp because its my own design.
ps. I've been offering my 45watt blondeshell for YEARS in 1x15,2x10,1x12, 8"x12"... and guess what the #1 seller is.. the blondeshell amp head.
And guess what is selling fairly well right now, these 5w baby blondeshell heads. I think we all like to collect guitars, pedals and speaker cabs. We tend to settle for one or two amp.
Its the greatest thing to own 10 different guitar cabs w one amp, thats what I do personally. I swap between my closeback 212 fender tonemaster cab w dual V30s and my tophat 212 openback cab w dual 65w Scumnicos, occasionally going w my openback 1x15 w a weber california (D130 JBL clone). I'm jonesing for a 1x10 cab at the moment, as I'm soooo in love w the Tonetubby 40/40 10" right now. I put one in my crap'o pro junior and dayum, its a cool amp again. barely fits as its like a massive compact vintage 30 in a 10" size sporting a hemp cone.
The little 5 watts is what pulled me in, the lack of a 16-ohm jack is a bit bothersome but my solution, so I can use it with any cab I have, is to save up for the Fryette Power Station 2. I think this will be a great swiss army knife device for all of my amps and cabs.
Got my taxes done, my average taxes paid was around 3.5% less while my salary was up about 3% than 2017 taxes, and with the tax changes at the beginning of the year I had a bit more take home because they weren't taking out as much but naturally you won't get as much back at the end of the year it just means I got to work with my money instead of the gov. A lot of bogus info out there about it making it sound all doomsday but it worked out for everyone I know who has a job so far. Why do I mention that because that is what will pay off the Baby Blondeshell which is oh so close to shipping. I am told there was a slight delay because the man building got the flu and put down hard. I hope he gets well soon for two reasons, I don't wish the flu on almost anyone, I'm not perfect I could stand to see a few people suffer like that, and I am impatiently waiting! hahaha
