    I think this is the 5275 model amp.

    anyone know much about these, are they essentially a bigger Lead 12 with reverb and an effects loop?

    One for sale a few hours away, but if the pay are similar to my lead 12 in tone, it would be worth the drive.

    The Lead 12 has more usable bedroom volumes, whereas the 75R can get really loud quickly. Both have similar tones, but the 75 has 2ch push/pull volumes to blend and achieve more gain options with dummy plug or footswitch. Reverb tank on mine sounded great. I ran it though a 4x12 and used wireless in the house to avoid feedback. I still have my Lead 12 for giggles, but sold the R75 for space and it was a duplicate for what I already have. If I had to choose, I'd go for the 5275.

    im thinking if it sounds anything like the lead 12, but louder, it could be a really good light weight option for band nights rather than lugging a 4x10 and a head.

    I’d still want my main set up for gigs, but something like this could be perfect for jamming.

    the one I am looking at has had the sidewinder replaced with a g12-75.

    Hey Lenny. You should also look at the 5210. 50 watt with a single 12 inch. I have one and its perfect for grab and go jams.

    lead 12, lead 20, 75 reverb don’t pop up very often over here. Ive never seen a 50watt for sale.

    seen one of the 100w MOSFET heads once, but didn’t know what I was looking at.

    kind of have to jump at what comes up. Seriously thinking about the drive up the coast for this 75 Reverb though.

    The 75s are rare over here so I imagine they are even more rare over there. Yeah I would take the drive and check it out. A drive up the coast of Australia sounds like a good time too.

    I have one of each, the 50W and the 75W. They make a great mini-stack!

    Can anyone with this amp give me the dimensions and weight?

    Can possibly have a friend collect one for me, pending space.
