The notes bounce off our strings and we are musically and physically connected with the amp just using the pick attack and guitar volume to roll back and switch between rythm and solo.Perhaps a transparent boost pedal to take us into David Gilmour land with sustain, harmonics and a creamy tone.
We remember these occasions as our happiest musical moments.
The blackfaces have more growl and a distorted, cranked tone.
It is heavy to carry with the 4×10″ speakers and massive iron transformers.
The height also makes it difficult to carry, making you sweat when hauling it between gigs.
It’s a big sounding amp with a potential for being very loud and bassy given the right (wrong) speakers.
