Hi Johnny,

the Peavey even sounds interesting to me. Is it the amp with 15" Speaker?

1978 SF Deluxe Reverb w/ Weber 12F150
1968 Bassman with '65 Bassman 2x12 (original speakers so far)
2006 Gibson GA-42RVT...30 watts 2x12....jury still out on this one. I got it for a good price, and it could use better tubes and better speakers. Channel 1 seems to have only one volume which is somewhere around 200 db I think. Channel 2 works very nicely. I has a "Mix" channel also which allows you to run both channels together, but with Channel 1s issue, the mix isn't very useful yet. I'll fix that soon.

The two Fenders are great amps though. I see many complaints on the "push/pull" function on the Fenders of the late 70s. I found a good fix for it....don't use it. Sounds great - haha.

Yep 15" speaker, the 15 seems to bring out the best in my T-Armond pickups that was lacking when I was using the Super Reverb with the 4 x 10's

I think 15" are really cool sounding. I'm thinking about turning my Bassman into a 1x15 combo ever since I played a Fender Bantam modified with a 15" JBL....yummy!!

I have two late 50's Bandmaster replicas, and both are modified with a Super Reverb output transformer. That's my Mergili Reverb/Tremolo unit on top of them.

Thanks guys. If you type "Seatsniffers" into the youtube search box, the clips that come up from withing the last two or three years is that rig - I have two of those amps, but usually play one at the time!

this one, for example

mshehan, how do you like the Weber 12f150? I just ordered one after hearing a lot of good things about them.....hopefully it was a good choice

Chud....the Weber is really nice. I ordered 50W light dope. Very nice mellow sound, and the cleans are great. I'd say it was a solid choice and a great upgrade. You'll like it!

I was just on the Mergili webpage, but the info is sparse. Can these reverb tanks get surfy like the Fender units? I mean that really splashy, dippy, tubey, surf reverb! The tremolo doesn't interest me as much as I am using the Nail Head. They look good and price is reasonable.

Mine isn't a copy of a Fender tank, but John (Mergili) can build you anything you want, get in touch with him and ask, he's a nice guy.

Silverface Vibrolux Reverb with singlecoils or a VibroKing with buckers, although Tavo has me thinking about a white Tolex Bassman that could use a little TLC
