And even a coiled cord! Droooooolllll......
Yes ! Lava retro coil
My band just got some good news from our agent so I finally complimented my SB300 with a proper Fender SB Neo 610 cabinet. This amp/setup is the real deal!
Awesome rig !!! I wish I could put my hands on the 610 Neo as well !!! No need for me with the gigs I do these days, however I would love to try my SB300 with such a nice cab !!! Enjoy, Ontario colleague !
Damn straight! That is a world-class rig, for sure!
I'm in on this club. Mine will be here Friday! Woot.
U will enjoy it a lot! Welcome!
Thanks Turlu. How would you compare the SB to, say, our Traynor tuber?
Also, I'll be running mine on top of my 3015 Kappalite load 215 Dually. I would imagine those two will pair well.
Two different beasts altogether. The SB 300 overdrive channel is simply to die for, with tons of great growl in it!!! Both amps are good, but in different departments. Enjoy!
Hey, this is my first Fender amp. Can someone give me a quick schooling on how the vintage channel with its passive tone stack works? Are 5's across the board considered "flat"? I thought I read something about it depending on the position of the other two knobs (in regards to bass, mid and treble)? Thanks for any help. It gets here tomorrow!
Pretty sure it's more like 2-10-2 for "flat" (bass, mid, treble).
The "Vintage Channel" is a passive tone stack that is "cut only". I believe this means that a flat setting is with the bass, mid and treble at 10. (At least that's what the manual says.)
Channel two is an active tone circuit that has both cut and boost. There is a center detent between 5 and 6 on bass, mid and treble knobs on that channel to indicate a flat setting.
There has been a bit of debate on this one on the other thread (Fender Bassman 100T). Tom is right that 2-10-2 should be flat (when is he ever wrong? ), ands there are click points on channel two for flat. FreightTrain did some experimenting and to EQ the vintage channel to the same tone as flat on channel two, you might want to have a look at the results on the other thread. Ultimately, of course, use your ears, but I have found that a little bass goes a long way with this circuit and you are right about the setting of one tone control affecting the others on the passive(vintage) channel.
And welcome to the club, Husky, you should love it. I have owned many tube heads over the years and this is the "one" for me. I also have the 100T but to be honest it just doesn't get out of the house now I have the SB300 - it is relegated to a practice amp. Even on quiet gigs I prefer the feel of power in reserve that the 300 provides. Guess I am just spoilt .
Nice. Thanks guys. So 2 - bass, 10 - mids, 2 - treble in the vintage is "flat". Very interesting. I hope the vintage side isn't mid shy. I loooove my mids but I'm sure the overdrive side will have plenty to offer. I probably just need to relax and wait until it gets here.
No worries, dude, you're gonna love it!
Man, I feel like Joe Pesci here....
Anywho's another Q, you guys that gig yours, what are you using for cases, etc?
I had a padded cover made for mine. I like that it is lighter than my old SVT and didn't want to add to the weight with road case.
Hey guys, just got it and having a bit of a "situation". I can't get any volume out of it before the speakers distort badly. The bias on the tubes are all green. I'm playing active Spector's through it but honestly their output isn't that hot IMO. Any thoughts?
Edit: Disregard! It was the speaker cable that Fender sent with the amp!
turn the bass knob down to like two.. it may be pumping out LOTS of low lows that you speaker can't handle. "flat" on this is something like bass on 2, mids on 8 or 9, treble on 2.
I'd try the speaker cable...
