I think if I had a decibel meter I could get the amps a little closer in sound. I will turn down the presence and treble of the 59, it will sound less shrill

Thanks for putting the video together. That was a nice demo of some incredible amps.

I love the sound of the wide panel amps - especially the '53 with the octal preamp tubes. There is just something magical about those early 50s Fender amps! Out of curiosity, which one did you prefer playing through?

This video is absolutely incredible. A bunch of unobtanium amps all auditioned at once.

In the unlikely event you want to unload one of those wide-panel amps, I'm local!

Personally, I'm a fan of the 3x6SC7 version, but good luck finding that.

Yeah they are very hard to find, I'm lucky I found some of the amps I got. I just looked at prices and what's available. Yikes they have gone up. Thank you for the wonderful compliment
