Check out some guitar and amp demo clips from Val’s YouTube channel:
Val’s tone partners: Heritage Colonial amp, Magneto T-wave and V-picks.
Magneto T-wave guitar:
Val is excited about this fantastic Tele-inspired instrument and joined the Magneto guitar Artist family in 2015. The T-wave gets some great jazz/clean tones from the P90 in the neck and solid chicken pickin’, blues or rock tones from the bridge pickup.
Custom Tweed Princeton 1×12:
Val built this amp based on the classic Tweed Princeton 5F2A circuit in July 2014. He stayed true to the original circuit, except for point-to-point construction and upgraded Classictone transformers.
The Weber 5F2A chassis lives in a Mathercab tweed Deluxe 1×12 cabinet, with a 5F2A chassis cutout. The larger cab really lets the amp open up beautifully! This lower gain circuit is really pedal friendly and can get sweet tube compression at very manageable volume levels.
For distorted tones with this amp, Val uses the Timmy OD by PaulC Audio and the XTS Atomic OD.
It’s about 5-8 watts of pure tube goodness! (Click on the pictures to see a larger image)
