  • quirky sounding amps

    now that i have that sweet schematics site, i want some ideas for a quirky sounding amp. What's a design that has a very unconventional tone? Like something really different, but is pleasing? No fenders, marshalls, voxes...etc..

        Jimmy Page got the good Zep tones from a Supro.

          I have an old Silvertone Twin Twelve that I'm looking to dump in favor of a more conventional amp. Although you wouldn't be building it, it needs a lot of work and might be a fun project if you like quirky amps. Let me know if you're interested.
