Last night my best friend gave me a very cool christmas present - It's a VERY old Gretsch tube amp for guitar - by the serial number I've found it was made between 1940 and 1942! Lots of tubes, a single 8" speaker (recently updated with a heavy duty Pyle), three inputs and a tone knob - voila! I told him I didn't know if I could use it for bass, but I tried it tonight and I didn't seem to hurt anything - very nice breakup as I went up on the volume dial, actually, but I backed it off because it was plenty loud for my practice room. The tone isn't suited for anything ultra-modern but hell- I enjoyed it, the only thing missing was some kind of EQ for mids =0) Major mojo though! I liked it better for jamming than my Genz combo! Would this be ok for doing more vintage-tone stuff, especially if I'm playing fretless or at least flatwound against acoustic guitars? I'd only use it at home and maybe at very tiny party or coffeehouse type gigs. Also, anybody who could give me more info on this amp, drop me a line and I'll share any details I can.
