    IMG_4748.JPG IMG_4750.JPG I've always loved the tone of the Super Reverb and everytime I played through one whether black face or silverface it put a smile on my face. I don't like heavy amps but this '75 turned up locally and I thought I would at least look at it. Even though I really didn't need it I decided it was coming home with me. If you've played through a Super you know the feeling. Now I need to take some advil for my back!

    Now that it's home the hard part's over. Up and down stairs solo is the killer for me with that lift height. They sound fantastic.

    Best all around amp ever.
    4x10 fills the room with fat 3D sound.
    No beam, so if you stand right in front of it, you HEAR it.
    On board verb and trem.
    If you mic it, mics LOVE 10" speakers.
    Just the right height to sit on ;)
    The only amp on earth that MIGHT sound better is a 58-60 5F6A tweed Bassman.
    But you can buy 10 SRs for what one costs.

    Congrats on a fine amp. Find a permanent parking space for that one.

    Congrats on the new amp! Those things are impressive, both sonically and build wise.

    A guy I play guitar with on occasion has an early 70's Super Reverb and it sounds amazing. Original speakers are still going strong too.

    I don't know if you have already arranged a trip to the tech for it but that might be worthwhile, especially if you plan on keeping it for life. Capacitors should be replaced and a tune up should get you the best that amp has to offer.

    Enjoy it!

    HNAD!

    All else to be said is that a great Super can always make any day "Super!"

    Enjoy,
