1966 Pro Reverb. For years the Blackface circuit has been my go-to. The Pro Reverb is a favorite because it has all the 3-dimensional sonic qualities of a Twin; but with half the power and wont break the windows when you want to hit the sweet spot. The big bottle 6l6’s still provide the quintessential warm cleans and the smaller tranny’s combined with 2×12’s just make it sit in the mix perfectly. Think bloomy cleans.
This beautiful 1970 Telecaster just has the ‘right’ feel and tone. Its 7lbs 2 ounces of pure Fender nostalgia and the re-wound original pickups are sweet in all three positions.
The icing to this trio is the new Catalinbread Belle Epoch that just hit the floor. As an owner of a ’74 Maestro Echoplex; I can’t tell you how amazed I am at the similarities. The tone, high-end roll off, ability to dial in a hint of ‘warble’; its incredible. No need to haul your machine out of the studio anymore”
