Post by RectifiedAmps »

Probably a long shot given how popular these are, but I’m interested if anyone has one they’d like to part with.

I also want one because I've had two and sold them...

I'm a fucking idiot.

Was thinking of swapping mine for a Blue Sky.

Why do people keep selling them though? Read other forums...it's the same thing. There's something to that. I think there's something a little sterile about the reverb, maybe that's it?

I don't think it was sterile. In fact, it was great and, I think much to its detriment, it just works! In the world of infinite tweakery and tone chasing, where's the fun in that?

I re-bought a Flint not long ago and I do seem to have fonder memories of how it sounded. I think that has something to do with the amp though. It used to run into the front of that 65amps London Pro which sounded great. Got it running into a DSL50 this time. Sounds just "good".

I did a/b it with the reverbs in my axe fx though and I prefer the Flint.

For me, it’s alot to do with the tremolo-reverb combo. It’s hard to find a versatile tremolo pedal that does the swampy thing plus the cleaner stuttery sounds. I also love the ability to switch the reverb and trem order around, too. Most vintage amps have reverb then trem, but I usually prefer the opposite.

It's the stereo tremolo that I don't think I could replace. It's subtle but noticeable. I don't care that it isn't fully analogue or completely natural. Having three different kinds of tremolo also is great. I use them all frequently.

I am not the biggest fan of the spring reverb, but in a mix it's close enough. I like the plate and hall, but don't use them often.

Its because you know it well sell for good money straight away when you need the cash ;-)

I sold my last one because I bought a Katana that already had shit load off effects. Now I'm back to a real tube amp I want a Flint again.

I have one of these: https://www.jimdunlop.com/mxr-tremolo/ paired up with a Boss RV-6, was tempted by a flint but they are just two much money. and this is a way more versatile combination for my needs :)

My amp has verb, so I'm very tempted by one of those too. Its the Harmonic tremolo that I love.
