Let's do some Excelsior demos.
Another killer little fender that is an absolute bargain is the Vibro Champ XD, I've been playing mine all day and dannnng!
the bedroom amps.
I’m goin to do vid with it soon.
They were a great sounding amp. I found a great example, new, at Wildwood and bought it. A few years ago, I gave it to me nephew as part of a gear purge.
I got dat too! I use it on all home recordings, direct out to my 16 track. The tweed voices are great. My only mod was to add a Weber speaker which did add a nice flavour. Great effects too, I mainly use the slap back for a bit of rockabilly
I had one of the later Excelsior's it was a kind of blonde with an emi speaker.
Once I'd sorted the rattles out and did the tone control mod it was a triffic low wattage amp in its own sort of way.
If another came along at the right price I'd snap it up.
Congrats, these are cool amps. Was surprised to see one at Sun Studios when I toured there last year (possibly included in their collection mostly for aesthetics).
Only use mine occasionally, but really enjoy it.
I’m going to do the 12 inch speaker. Hooked it up a Jensen. Wow ! Night and day.
Sweet... I bought my Excelsior with the Weber already installed so I can’t tell, but other people told me that the stock 15 wasn’t bad but sounded a bit lifeless. I bet that a 12 would do a big difference.
Was it a 12 or 15?
What the heck. Going to build a pine Cab for it this week. Install a 12. The cabs are the problem with these.
It was a Weber Michigan 15. I never thought about installing a 12 instead, but it sounds like a nice idea to try.
I’ve heard that each input is voiced differently, just ignore the mic and accordion labels. You can get a tone you like between the different inputs and the tone switch. That said, just put a tone switch in.
I love the 12 inch speaker idea. That opens up so many possibilities.
A 12 might sound very good. It’s a wonderful sounding amp and has a lot of body to the sound. I loved it for Surf. Sometimes I regret not having one.
I'm still kicking myself for not snatching this one up that I saw in GC a few months ago for $199.99 used...
What was I thinking?...
One day I hope to get one, preferably with the mods already done
15" combos are great, I wish more vintage-voiced amps used 15" speakers for guitars.
