  1. Celestion Greenback G12M Buyers guide

    Also look at the Celestion AlNiCo Creamback. I dig the Greenback sound and the AlNiCo G12 Cream is very much in that vein. Higher power handling too. In fact, the G12M in my Vox will very likely be swapped out for one.
  2. They definitely have a distinct flavor! Sent from my SM-G955U using Tapatalk

    Definitely a good looking amp! Love the art deco look. Play in good health! Sent from my SM-G955U using Tapatalk
  4. Definitely owned a few. Since joining the Heritage forum (9 years ago maybe?) I've owned: Fender Hot Rod Deville 410 (owned it when I joined the forum) - sold it as I found it to be too harsh for my ears. Picked up a VOX AC50CP2. Sold it as it was having reliability issues and I apparently wasn't the only one. Loved the sound tho. Picked up a Roland Cube 80x from Marty Grass. Still own it. Really a great sounding little amp. Got a Jet City 20. I was starting to play more rock for a little bit and this fit the bill. Traded it for a JC120 after the phase passed. Got the JC120. Liked it but it started having some functional issues. Which is odd. Roland JC amps are typically old reliable. Traded it. Got a Fender Excelsior for the JC120. It was ok. Returned it. Got a Peavey 5150 half stack. That was more of a nostalgia thing. Sold it after the nostalgia passed. Got a Mesa Express from Marty Grass. It was VERY nice but eventually I fell out of love with the flavor of the amp. I got an old Gibson amp that was basically just the cabinet and chassis. A friend of mine that works for Orange built it up. Me moving to Vegas really slowed progress on that. Now that I'm back in GA, that is going again. It is back with my friend getting tweaked. Still own it. Now I got the Vox. 10 amps over the 9 years. 3 of which I still have. Sent from my SM-G955U using Tapatalk
  5. Oh not at all. Definitely had heavier! AC30. JC120. Hot Rod Deville 410. Definitely has a big sound to it. I played Rumble by Link Wray on it today and it sounded GREAT overdriven. I really like the Hot/Cold switch on the Top Boost channel. It bypasses the EQ knobs and gets REAL gainy. Not like a Soldano SLO or anything. ...but plenty for me!

    Ah ok. Next time I talk to "the family" I will see if they know about Marv or any of the original owners doing side builds. I haven't been up to Michigan in a couple of years now. Probably due.

    Ah ok. That's right. I forgot D'A had put out the feelers. In the end, though, it did go to Victor Baker to produce the guitars. Sent from my SM-G955U using Tapatalk

    That one is actually a leftover from the first run. It's been there for a very long time. Sent from my SM-G955U using Tapatalk
  9. NAD: Orange Rocker 32

    That's very cool. Very cool amp. Oddly enough, a childhood friend of mine is an amp designer with Orange now. Sent from my SM-G955U using Tapatalk

    To my knowledge, the only Heritage-built D'A guitars were made quite some time ago. I do believe that, as of late, Victor Baker's shop in NY was building their high end models. Side note: Baker is moving his shop to San Diego. Sent from my SM-G955U using Tapatalk
  11. You oughta hear it! Warning: I'm not playing any Beatles or Queen tunes in this video nor trying to emulate similar tones. Lol. Sent from my SM-G955U using Tapatalk
  12. No buried tubes here! This one, according to specs, is about 49 lbs. Not a paperweight. What's really surprising is the sheer size of it. This is like a slightly less wide AC30. One of the attached pictures shows the Vox next to my Roland Cube 80x... also a single 12 amp. Lol. Sent from my SM-G955U using Tapatalk
  13. Handwired. The big appeal of that was a couple things. If a mod if wanted, it's more doable. ...that and if the tubes crap out, I know they aren't buried in the board. Lol. Not sure if the PCB vox amps are like that but I've seen plenty (Marshall comes to mind in particular) that have done it. Sent from my SM-G955U using Tapatalk
  14. I sent you a PM with a sound sample. Let me know if you don't get it. I don't have the best luck sending IM through Tapatalk. Sent from my SM-G955U using Tapatalk
  15. Depends on what you mean by "jazzy" and what you mean by "cleans". Lol. The Vox is a very different animal from the Swart. The Swart is a fantastic amp but much different sounding and feeling. The Vox has a fantastic "squish" to its saturation that I like. Sent from my SM-G955U using Tapatalk
