desert island guitar amp

<< < (2/2)

Jesse Allain:
I agree on the Fender blackface amps. The blackface tone is what I always envision when I think of an ideal guitar tone. The Princeton Reverb 65' blackface reissue is my personal favorite due to its small size and smaller speaker size. I like the fact that it does not overemphasize the low frequencies (80-250Hz). When the amp is turned loud and begins to break up, it begins to become its own "instrument" as the dynamics of the guitar become a great factor in the amp's distortion of the signal.

This dynamic playing of the amp can be seen in this video of Jim Campilongo.
