I have owned a 4x10 fender hotrod DeVille since 2007. It has seen ALOT of use (shows/recordings/tour/etc). In all this time, the only maintenance I have done to it has been replacing the power tubes (because some genius fell into my amp and broke the back board with his knee, breaking both tubes), and I have replaced the reverb pan. Our last show (this past friday) the amp started squealing loud mutant baby alien noises randomly (only way I can describe it). I couldn't tell if it was a connection problem or something sending too much power to the tubes. I am not a tech by any means. The only thing I can say is that When I replaced the power tubes I was told to replace the other (smaller tubes)... which I never did. Any insight is GREATLY appreciated.

but even then, sure you could push the buttons, but it would seem mighty hard to turn the knobs with your toes.
Please tell me I got it wrong and that truth is use have to use your fingers to turn the knobs.

I never seen a pedal board in person but I did used to use a foot switch dannylectro echo effect when the amp's reverb was not working. But I must confess I turned it on with my finger cuz I thought it would break if I stepped on it.

But all those things in that suticase, man you guys are not just musicians you are also technicians operating that configuration it is amazing how that does not seems to distract you from your playing.
For me just all the knobs on the amp are almost too much, I could never master playing a guitar and pedal board at the same time.

Very sweet indeed and dead quiet ta'boot.

And the Blonde through the Carbon Copy is pure tweed fatness.

That means more quality playing time into the wee wee hours without the cops showing up.

Got this beautiful tweed board the other day from West Coast Pedalboards.

Ever 'thang I need and nothin' I don't.

When I do get to crank the tweeds, I bypass the Blonde and use the Micro Amp for lead boost.



Now what y'all got on the floor?

Instead I crank the amplificadore and adjust guitar volume to get my tone.

I also roll back on the treble.

All my Lesters have p90's as well as my V's and I use a variety of amps.

Ever 'thang from JMP 50w to low watt tweed and even Pignose 7-100.

Never had a problem with slide tone with those rigs.

As mentioned, I'd adjust pup pole piece's.

A clean boost like a Microamp or a BB ain't a bad 'thang either.

If they are covered pickups, you might try adjusting the screws just under the E and A strings...

What gauge strings?

You might adjusting the gauge of the E and A strings themselves...

Just a thought.

I can't stand Neil and his opinions but...

His music is incredible and his tone is awesome.

Playing thru a tweed deluxe with 6L6's, a Whizzer, and a Maggie i believe.

Even Muddy I reckon would count this as kinda' blues.

If there's one amp its that one.

Many play through other amps but just like vegetarians....

Eventually they all eat chicken.

And tweed.
