I just got a Peavey XXL combo, the heads seem to be easier to come by though. It’s an awesome amp. Don’t know if it’s much lighter than a tube head, though…
That's all I've been using for the past 3 years, while my tube monsters remain sleeping Giants on the back wall. I still love them but these Kats are so handy and Powerful. You can also commandeer the power section through the effects Loop!Boss Katana MK2 100 watt head, is pretty loud on a 412.
Gets pretty close to certain tones too. A few of your fave pedals , and a tube screamer on the clean channel can get you close. Downladable patches and global eq for tweaks. The clean channel sounds quite loud and clean.
had a Sunn 1x12 back in the mid 80s. i havent seen one like it since and cant remember the model.
omg i couldnt wait to get rid of it. if ed's tone was brown, this this was a silver as it could get.
made your ears bleed it was so thin sounding. nothing you could do to fix it either.
any sunn experts on here that can help me find that amp some how on line? would love to read up on it now
to see if there are any other opinions out there on it now. its was brand new in like 84ish.
I had a Sunn SL60 2x12 for a while I pulled off an FB ad for a hundred. Found very little about it online, but an internal QC sticker indicated it was from ‘83. Emailed Fender to see if they had any information on it and they didn’t even know anything about it. Didn’t sound all that amazing, although the speakers themselves were fantastic. Wondering if yours might be a 1x12 version of that line.
you just couldnt do anything to makes these things sound good.
I didn’t hate it that badly, but it had very little bass and very little treble (unless you pressed that awful bright switch, in which case it was all treble lol). But! I took it outside once and cranked it to about 75% of its volume (which the aging hardware didn’t seem to appreciate much, it started making a popping sound) and hit it with a Boss DS-1. At that point it really was pretty doom-y, if that’s what you’re into.
