Thanks to all who stopped by the table and to Pete Pena from Command Performance who shared the table so that we would each have some floor space!

PreBS 15+15

Been wanting to try this for some time now. A PreBS 15+ with 15″ speaker. Turned out better than I imagined! The oversized Mercury Magnetics transformers combined with the larger cabinet and 15″ speaker is a perfect combination! More volume, more headroom, and more harmonic overtones when pushed, especially with the feedback knob cranked. It’s just hard to imagine a senario where this amp wouldn’t excell. Use 6V6(18W) or 6L6(36W) power tubes to dial it in for your particular volume and tone preferences. Right at home with blues, country, surf, jazz, rock, and ? Portable powerful perfect tone!
