It's all a matter of taste - no right or wrong!


I use an Alnico Gold in a 1x12 Cab with my 5e3 and it sounds great to me, but I also favour more Chimey tones so take that with a grain of salt. I have a pair of small 6” speakers (Eminence ceramic and Weber Alnico) hiding in the head and that has a very boxy champ type vibe, which is also really cool! I’ve even used just the head at band practices with a drummer and it cuts through really really well!


Thats a cool idea!

The amp arrived this morning unmolested by the courier. What a beauty, lovely rich singing tone. Although I haven't had it at high volume the global scaling is going to be really useful for home use. I am going to have to have a play around with the controls as they really do give a wealth of sounds.

Mike and BG did a great job, the amp is quiet no noise at idle and looks great. Totally stoked with it, take a bow guys seriously nice work.

Cheers mate, that turned out really well, I like the power scaling idea! It seemed to work really well in the few minutes I played around with it :)
It also fits beautifully into a Mitre10 medium cardboard packing box! Thought I'd have to make one out of two...

and welcome to the wonderful world of the tweed deluxe, the original tweakers dream. So many tones between two vols, a tone and a patch cable!
running mine into my vibrolux is awesome! Its not stereo - but its old school wet/dry

Loving the Tweed Deluxe world so far, figured out how to get that break up at living room volumes ... very musical dirt. Breaking out the patch cable after dinner. There are just so many tweaks from fat clean to dirt and back. That toggle for later break up and the power scaling are all kinds of useful.

I use an ABC box so I can set one channel up clean(ish) - the bright on volume 4-5, the other channel up dirty - volume around 10 & can select either channel or both combined. So 3 different sound choices with your ABC foot pedal. Use the Power Scaling to set the overall volume from bedroom to stage :)
