First of all, I would like to thank everyone for their input on my post
concerning the Premier Amp. Everytime I have a question, whether it involves a
song, live recording techniques or harmonica repair, this list always has an
answer (or two...or three...).
Now, I went back to the music store and the amp was still sitting in the
corner. The owner said that he had played guitar through it that morning and he
at least knew it was working. I then plugged my Sure Silver Bullet in and let
some Little Walter fly...Wow, this amp has a great tone. It was exactly what I
was looking for - a good practice amp that could also be used for acoustic
acts/coffee house gigs and an amp that distorted at low volumes.
The owner had done some homework and discovered the amp was from 1956. The
model is a Premier 110. I believe it has a 12" speaker and standard tubes
(meaning, the owner said they were easily replaced). Since the amp does not
have reverb, I was wondering if anyone would reccomend an INexpensive delay
pedal or reverb unit. Maybe I don't even need it, however, I am used to my
Fender Super Reverb and have been spoiled. Do any of you play amplified blues
without an delay or reverb?
P.S. Oh yeah, I ended up paying 50 dollars for the amp. I think that was a fair
