No affiliation.  So, anybody got any neighbors that they want to really annoy? :rolleyes:

P.S. I hope these links work, as the DGS website has been acting funky since they redid it a few months ago...otherwise, if you want to check them out, then you'll have to go to the website itself.

I just texted this to someone the other day.  I wonder if this thread is a sign from the universe…


 

”Sitting on the couch with the the wife, having some wine, chatting about nothing in particular. Friends is on in the background. 

There's a Hiwatt half stack on stage at the coffee shop. 

Is it wrong of me to want that half stack just because I'm a fan of the show... 

I mean, we've come up with lesser reasons to buy gear, right...?“

Those are all 2 (vs4) input amps.  Prob early 80s pcb rather than ptp. I gather a little more gain than the older ones.  Not as pricey as the 4 hole amps

 

 

if the real deal original fanes are in the cabs, then that is something to look at.  Will have to go through their ads.  So far just quick look at pix.

You missed the 'cool' pic...

Looks like this one is gone.  It would be more likely a Tom Petersson tour amp rather than one of Nielsen's.

Hey... Tom is almost as cool as Rick! 😂

I would love to have some of Tom's gear.  It seems like he never uses the same amps from one year to the next.  Something in his Backlund is always changing.  

There was at least one tour, maybe just one, when Tom had four Rickenbacker amps that were all trapezoidal.  They looked cool.
