Redplate Blackverb previous owners??

Post by Dharmajester »

I picked up a Redplate Blackverb from Troy a ways back and afterwards became aware that it has been through a succession of forum owners.
Just wondering why previous custodians passed it on as I fucking love it and can't imagine anyone not being equally enamoured.
Initial impression wasn't terribly favourable but after 5 hours with it in the lounge just playing and tweaking settings with a p90's Special I found the sweet spot and there it has remained ever since.

May take a drive down next week if you're up for a visit. I'd like to give it a go. Was 'nearly' mine once though can't recall who was selling it at the time.

Used to be mine too! Was a great amp, but I was on a 'must EL84' thing at the time, ended up with Matchless Lightning and a Nighthawk at the same time.

Shoulda bought a DC30 and been done with it.
