Got to own a full stack once in your life


Recommended Posts

I guess that Rivera combo won't come my way (other thread). But I scored a 4x12 straight 1990's cab with Greenbacks for 450$ a month ago. You got to own a full stack once in your life. Better late than never. 

It sounds like a freight train jumping on your chest with the fuzz pedal engaged. So much fun. :-=

I still have yet to own a full stack, just a half stack. Maybe some day.

I nearly obliterated my hearing using a 50-watt half stack for three solid years of gigging.  It was great.  A full stack...uhhh....huh? Say what?

That. Is. Awesome!

What Josh said. I'm chartreuse with envy.

 

ETA - ...or is it British Racing Green? Either way. That f***ing rocks.

The biggest rig I ever had was it Peavey Mark4 amp with an 1810 cabinet. 2 10s and 1 18 speaker.

To phrase this in youth speak circa 2018, this post got me so in my feelz that I would buy two 4x12s today if I saw them at a good price, lol.  Thankfully, that isn't too likely to happen. 

I mean, I do like two of everything.

Two heads on two cabinets is better than one head with two cabinets. 

So you're saying I really need two full stacks?

Do two half stacks being driven thru a stereo chorus count? Talk about moving some air! Believe me, the goose bumps will come. Oh yes, they will come.

Screaming deal on that cab too!

I concur.  These days I'd probably run a stereo image into them and bask in the width.  🤘

Every time I see that Spinal Tap picture, that whole dialog runs through my brain and I laugh out loud!

 

We all do.

Ditto over here.  I'm forever consigned to trying to answer the phone when it's not ringing.  And the current scourge has made lip-reading quite a trick.

I had a Peavey Mace that sat on a Mesa 4/12. Not quite a double stack but so loud standing in front of them it was like a guitar heaven aura, every nuance of the guitar was alive!! 

Lynard Skynard fun stuff!!

I keep telling myself that I have no need for a full stack and that the half stack I use maybe once a year is more than enough. And then I keep coming back to this thread and staring at your picture...  🤤🤤🤤

The other guitarist in the band has a Super Lead full stack. He's been on me for years to get a 2nd cab. First I had the smaler 3x2 cab on the right. Semi open back. Light weight. Sounds great. But I wanted a close back. So I ended up with the old 1974 4x12 slanted cab. I was pretty happy with this set up. But the other guys guitar sound was just fuller, it sounds like all those classic tones you love. I was close, but not the same bottom. So when this greenback straight cab came up for sale close to me I had to try it. And the sound is fuller with two cabs. Plus you get one cab straight in your face, not on the floor. This makes a big difference in how it sounds. Just HUGE. Love it 🙂

That is a 1973 Marshall Artiste 2040 combo. I found it 15 years ago for 350, score of the year. Then I had it modified in to a JTM50 cirquit on the 2nd channel and a Bassman 6G6-B on channel one.  This removed the reverb, but no big loss. It has two old G12H-30s in it. One original and one 55 hz version that I think might be a replacement.

It's a great amp for club gigs. Sounds like a JTM45 with some extra oomph. I think it sounded better than a 90's reissue Bluesbreaker we had down in the rehersal place a while ago. Here is me playing it 11-12 years ago after I had done the mod.

 

These are great amps in their original state too. Not so Marshally. Not that much drive when dimed. But they sound sweet, warm and very cool.
