    On a serious note ..absolutely I know that, and unfortunately you *are* correct. Guess what I meant was I want an amp that will deliver those tones when I can "air it out", and still sound decent attentuated at lower volumes. For some reason the Chubster does not like the two attentuators I've run it through (granted, one is crap..but)

    Closest I'll get to that at low volume is with modelling I know (unfortunately).

    1/2 stack, or full stack, and serious volume. Even through my Hot Plate, I still run the amp very hot, and play pretty loud.

    Have you heard Tesla Replugged? Monster tones. Thats what I'm after. Him and Angus are the only two guys I know who can make an SG sound absolutely friggin HUGE. Can hardly tell when he pulls out the Les Paul. For that matter he makes a Tele sound HUGE too. Great chops, great tones.

    Yeah..the site is pretty darn new I believe Ben Says the soundclips are coming soon. I remembered reading an interview with Frank where he said these were based on his modded Hiwatts (which are not terribly Hi-wattish..LOL)....and he talked a bit about them...but now I can't find the interview...then found a link on his site to there.

    started a topic Modern Vintage Amps

    Modern Vintage Amps

    Not much info available on their SITE....anyone fam with these amps?

    Frank Hannon has an amp designed for him by these people based on his modded HiWatt...I see they have a 25 Watt combo switchable to 12 watts. Frank's tones are damn near ideal for what I want (modded FAT 800-ish sounds), so I *may* be willing to spend a few more $ on something like this...(plus it has El34s unlike most low wattage amps)

    Harmony Central has two reviews..both are excellent...but just looking for more opinions...
Working...
