The Marshall likes the SG or is it the SG likes the Marshall???
I've tried perhaps a half dozen attenuators on lower wattage amps. Nice attenuators too, some even built right into the amps. None of them did it for me, but I need one in an apartment.
I took the plunge and bought a Fryette PS-2 Power Station and use it with my Victoria Ivy League, a 14-watt amp.
One of the best purchase decisions I've ever made. It's a great piece of gear.
The Fryette is definitely on my short list for future purchases since it’s not really an attenuator, but rather, a re-amper.
It can raise as well as lower the output levels, which seems to be the best solution for most any live performance situation.
In fact I’m a little jealous...
I have one of these, an ac30 and a custom 68 Twin Reverb. The sv 20 is by far my favourite amp. Just something about it. If you put a passive volume control in the loop, then slightly push the input with a clean boost, you can get a clean tone that in my opinion sounds better than my vox and my twin. Man that clean tone is just the ultimate pedal platform as well. For me anyway.
You're a definite fortunate son! It oozes coolness and vibe.
Just once you should set your rig up outdoors and see if someone can hear it at Billy's Boudin and Cracklin'.
I bought a basic 'Palmer' attenuator for my SV20H so I can use it at home as well. I have to run it in 5 watt mode and the attenuator at or near maximum, so it does change the tone some, but I find I can compensate by turning the presence and/or treble up a bit more than I usually run them. At rehearsal studio I still use it, but just to shave a slight bit off the level...I'm sure if I used it for gigs then I wouldn't need the attenuator at all.
I've also got the Mini Jubilee (original version, pre 'Studio') and recently picked up an SC20 combo on a really good deal, ex-display. They all have their differences, but I do love the SV20H as it's so easy to dial in a good sound using just the two volume controls (when jumpered). It's just that the other two are easier to use in a covers band due to the master volume and used more as a pedal platform.
However, I think I'm going to try my SV20H stack at a rehearsal soon as I'm finding that I've been able to really strip down the number of pedals I use to cover our set list anyway. Maybe just the SV20H, a clean boost in the loop for solos and something to give more saturation on the front end for the songs that need more than a mild crunch (most of our set to be fair would work fine with just the Plexi's own crunch).
I got to play one at Chicago Music Exchange last week - great little amp! Loud as hell
I don’t know about Billy’s but they can hear me a Don’s Speciality Meats!!!
A Klon style overdrive through a Marshall is a match made in heaven. Congratulations.
I have a JRockett Archer Ikon and a JHS Klone…. I’ve tried the IKon and it does sound good…. Today it’s ….
Yep, I've noticed that. The nice thing about this type of overdrives is that they basically don't change your core sound: they just give you more of everything you love about your rig.
Clip of the Cher Petite Plexi…
Is that cabinet a 4x12 MG, 4x10 1965A, or ????
Those amps are fabulous!
It’s VS 4x12 …. valve State. Nobody likes these cabs. I think nobodies ever listened to one. It sounds fine…. Like in the above video… I’ve had it for years and played my 1987X and my Soldano Decatone thru it….
Any idea what model speakers are in it?
They are Celestion 35 watt speakers. They have a black and white label it’s been years since I opened that cabinet. The cab is rated at 140 watts so to make the math work out the speakers must be 35 watts. I know they are not the best Celestion make … but I don’t fix what’s not broken… heck I’m playing a 20 watt head thru it…. And I’ve played 100 watt head thru it… I know it was made to go with those SS Valve State Marshalls of the late 90’s…. I don’t care it works
I’m pretty sure they are like these…
