Tube Amp with no EQ?
« on: September 18, 2013, 09:52:12 AM »
Is there a decent tube amp around with no EQ? I'd love to have an amp with no EQ and maybe just a tone knob, an amp that if you've got a good guitar, it'll sound good sorta thing. If you use a strat for example and you've set the EQ on the bridge pickup so it's not too harsh and you've got a nice fat lead sound, it's not going to sound great on the neck pickup for example, maybe too muddy and bassy, i've seen some people like Bonamassa set up there amps so that everything is turned to 0 bar the mids which are at like 2, and the tone of the guitar, no matter what pickup etc.. really comes through, and you can use pedals such as a ts808 for more drive etcetcetc... Thoughts?

Have either of you tried out those amps? Any good? I've heard that Dr.Z amps are really good, anybody tried those?

Z makes some good amps.  Not really my cup o' tea but they're good amps.

I just want something with a volume and tone knob, but a really good pure tube tone that is sensitive to you changing pickups and messing with volume and tone knobs on your guitar, but maintains good quality highs/lows , compression etc... Something that I can add true bypass pedals to, for more drive Etc when needed. Dr Z seems to come close to this so far!

I use a Pro Junior built into a custom 2x10 pine/tweed cab.  In standard form the Pro is excellent however, punches well above it's weight and totally underrated by those that haven't tried one.
