|The Thunderbolt kicks serious butt if you want that Pagey tone. Made by Valco - my most favored amp maker of all times. They made the Magnatone (213) that I love so much. If you're seriously interested in this amp, you should write Terry Dobbs - the reigning expert on these amps. I think he might have a Silvertone version of the same amp for sale for much less. And I guarantee it will sound at least as good as a Thunderbolt. Here's his email address. Check out his site www.valcoamp.com|
Great guy. A master of amp restoration and... affordable! And he can authoritatively answer all questions Valco/Supro/Magnatone etc.
Sorry to have been out to lunch. Producing second record for Hayley for Universal Music now. Studio experiencing huge upheavals, upgrades, eyeballs blazing from too many manuals, hair gone curly from leaking molten grey matter. Recorded bass and drums in Seattle at Jason from Deathcab for Cutie's studio. Played their spooky upright piano. Cool.
Loads of new fancy toys here. The Leaning Tower of Visa is casting a long shadow these days!!!
Walking the highwire! Having a blast.
Miss reading all the good stuff here. Will check in occasionally.
