OK, here's what I'm working with. I have a Vox AD120VT modeling amp and a Fender Champ 12. I usually use the Vox on the "Black 2x12" setting (Twin), but it has about 15 other amp models, including a tweed 12 and a tweed 4 x 10. It has four power settings, and for practice in the house I usually have it on the lowest- 1 watt (!). It has an effects loop.
The Champ is a late 80's red knob with the PCB circuit board (yup, the one with the ugly distortion "channel"). I've done the Torres red knob mod on it and put in a Celestion Vintage 30 speaker.
Both of these are carryovers from previous lives before I got finnaly got serious about getting down to "the tone". I've played guitar on and off for 40+ years, my first Dead show was Woodstock followed by 70 odd shows, but "late in life" I've rekindled my interest in actually playing Dead material. I currently have a Fender tele (I added a Warmouth body and Callaham bridge), my upgraded electronics Jay Turser 335 knock off (surprisingly good value for the money), a Hofner bass knockoff, and an old Yamaha acoustic. I just sold my Ric 360/12 and am converting that into a Phiga Tiger- ready later this year. All are leftys.
My Qtron+ and Boss EQ arrived yesterday, and much to my surprise I was impressed more with what the EQ could do for tone than the funky fun Qtron stuff.
So I guess you could put me in the "long time listener, first time caller" category
But, back on topic, I'm still looking to get a small rig that gets me close on tone. If what I have can't be modded to get me there I'll move on to something that can. No plans for playing out, just playing for the enjoyment.
