Topic: first amp?
after the acoustic v electric i got to thinking about the first amp i bought. god, i haven't thought about it for a good 40 years! as i mentioned before, i bought this crappy little zenta electric and my father tried to rig it up to an old radio, didn't work. anyway i was walking past this 2nd hand shop when i saw this selmer 5 watt amp and mic and stand. the guitar cost me £15 the amp cost me another £5, so i was rolling.
at 16 years old i had to have it up full volume, which made it distort rather badly, which is a major contributor to my dislike of distortion of any kind, unless i want it, which is why i have a fuzz pedal.
i later bought a WEM (watkins electrical music) which i think was a 25 watt. then i got a job that payed money so i bought a sound city 100 watt amp and cab. then various others till i came to the peavy i'm playing at present.
that's mine, what's yours?
