If you were stood in front of it when a big earthquake hit, probably still not too bad of a way to go out

If you were playing at the time, yes. :-)

Saw some demos of Supro Amulet... now I want one! Has anyone played/owned one of these before, either the 10" or 12" version?

Not played the Amulet but I have an older comet which seems to be much the same thing: single ended 6L6, valve rectified with a 10 inch speaker. Nicely made and very cool looking. Goes nicely with single coils imo but a bit too warm with humbuckers for my taste. A curse to get fixed if anything goes awry as the company is anal about IP.

I have the Delta King which is a similar sounding amp, 6L6 single ended, it has a Master instead of the wattage settings and no tremolo. I really like it, its great a low volumes and has a nice low end for a small amp.

I stepped off bass and thought baritone would be a nice way to ease into guitar. Guitar fretboards felt cramped, the strings felt flimsy.

But no, all that's happened is I've become (is that ok, BG?) used to playing baritone in Drop A and guitar fretboards still feel cramped and the strings still feel a bit thin (not as much as before though)

And I'm always wondering what I would do if something happened to my baritone. Get another one, of course, but which one? Unfortunately I always end up disliking something about each one that's available in Welly music stores so in a very Daza-like way, I never get around to playing any. This has gone on for months.

This is why I went custom build. Got the shape, specs etc I wanted. I run 13-70 strings in drop G, which are a bit heavier than most go for.

Yep, I guess that's the best idea so far. Ta :)

Yes, it really is impressive. Two completely different channels that totally nail a genre. I think they may know a thing or two about how best to record such an amp also ;-)

It's interesting - I can dial up that clean ish tone, including fantastic reverb, on the vintage Princeton. Same break up (and also using an attenuator), and touch sensitivity.

Reminds me a little of my old Red Plate also. Wonder where that is now.
