Tube amps sound best when you drive them hard, but even mid-size amps are just too loud to play at top volume. This little guy, though, can be opened up to 8 or 9 without blowing anyone out of the room, and sounds hot, with just that level of tube-distortion crunch that makes for that blues harp sound.
I rarely play amplified, but this will make its stage debut early next month at the Greenwich Village Bistro, with Saboteur Tiger. I'll be playing harp for two sets with them on April 3, and before that I'll be playing the Barrington Coffeehouse in Barrington, NJ, on March 29. More details to come on both shows.
