Mike's told me last we emailed recently he blew out his intestines (hernia)
three times in the past but has adjusted his playing to avoid another.
He's been a Sonny Jr. amp endorser for twelve years now, starting with the 410
to the Cruncher and then Avenger which he loves but sold when financial
issues hit, however just bought another one stating he likes it that much.
Amplifier sales and news.
I have two Super Sonny's, two Avengers and one Super Cruncher in stock,
each with features that were custom designed for Charlie Musselwhite and Sugar
Ray Norcia. Ray was a great sounding board for every time I'd email him to
meet and try this speaker, tube set up until getting to where it's his
gigging amp. The Super Sonny he owns was a bit much for his low back he needed
surgery for not long ago but if the SC didn't cut the mustard like it does
he'd make arrangements to have the SS there.
I also have a mint 410 converted toSuper Sonny with it's unique sound
enhancer cab design which takes most of the air from the lower two speakers,
rolls it back into the cab and projects out, giving huge bottom end and
projection. I've given it added coats of a new product I use for the hard shell
water repellant gloss finish. No dents, scratches on the tweed, not even on
the bottom, the original owner took great care of it.
The tubes consist of new Groove Tube middle graded power tubes and vintage
USA preamp tubes which come Stock with every SJ amp for the past several
years. The patch cable, padded Tuki cover, nicely bound manual are also
included as it a Six Month warranty on all components of the circuit and
speakers with three months on power tubes And vintage preamp tubes. The only thing
of note was my fault when I opened the box and put a slice in the top of
the cover which is just surface, not all the way through.
Lastly for now I recently purchased one of my original Sonny Jr 1's with
the Sam Hutton cab, just to perform the demonstration of how the Boss EQ
pedal jacks it on steroids. It will be for sale right after that; it was Pete
Sheridan's who put some excellent vintage Jensen P8R's in it. Heck, I'm
already certifiably mad, I'll even warranty a Twenty year old amp for six
months on the circuit and tubes; due to them being vintage speakers even though
I will fully test them I cannot include them in the warranty. Someone
lacquered it and I will do whatever's needed to buff it up. Sam Hutton for any
of you who don't recognize the name was the famous cab builder for Fender in
the late 50's and early 60's. His cabs have what looks like a dollar sign
on the bottom which is actually and S over an H.. Much of the knowledge
I've learned about floating baffle boards, sound reproduction was influenced
by Sam who built Kim Wilson's custom SJ1 with a 12" speaker that was
designed to fit overhead on a plane once I got the most consistent dimensions.
Called by Kim, The Best Amp out of the Box, he used it solely on his My Blues
CD and last I heard he still has it and uses it. A big KW in yellow
lettering is on the front.
Keep track of the website as there's a bomb brewing for SJHA's. All the
best to everyone.
