    Re: Amp that could get close to this tone?

    Thank y’all for the help!

    I believe I have found somewhat of a solution: Fender Bassbreaker 30R. It is a modern take on a Bassman/JTM type thing. If I had it rebiased to run 6L6s and an M75 or V30 instead of the V-type it comes with I wouldn’t be far off. I wish they made the Bassbreaker 45 head with a gain channel, but oh well!

      The speaker swap may get you closer to the tone you're chasing (especially the M75), but the Bassbreaker 30R runs EL-84s, so octal tubes (like 6L6s) literally won't fit. If you're looking for another option for a Greenback (G12M) tone with higher power handing, I love the Eminence Private Jack. I'm running a pair of them with an Egnater Tweaker and they're great for Fender, Vox, and lower gain Marshall tones.

Which is why many people play electric guitars but very very few of them are actually musicians.

        Sorry, my brain wasn’t working for a second there. I think I might have it set up for 6V6s, not 6L6s. I’ve always been a fan of V30s and Greenback together in a cab (obviously not really an option here without an extension cab but whatever), but I will be sure to check out those Eminence speakers!

          EL-84s use a 9-pin socket similar to those used by preamp tubes, and only 9-pin tubes will fit in a Bassbreaker 30R. 6V6s, 6L6s, 5881s, and EL-34s (plus many others) are octal tubes with a larger 8-pin base.

            I thought 6V6s were 9 pins? I guess not. It sounds great with the 84s regardless
