Get a Spark.
Have you tried one of the early ValveStates?
My Mk II VS65R could be considered Grab-n-go.
It's open backed, so you can stash leads and stuff.
Also, to increase the Grab-n-go-ishness of any amp you could put a Neodymium speaker in there.
Sounds awesome but probably gonna be above my budget.
45 - 60 lbs depending on the combo of choice, not bad.
Not bad for a body builder LOL. I've got 2 bulging disks in my lower back I gotta be careful of. I might even have to get rid of my LPs, I've been looking at those LP Classic Lites, if I can get one made in lefty.
Its like an LP shaped SG LOL super thin and light!
Oh, so sorry to hear that, not good at all...yes, you must be careful no doubt!
Its all good as long as I'm careful.
Maybe I'll get the 50 watt Code?
My first amp when I was around 12 y.o. was a Peavey Backstage 30. I thought it was kind of funny it was called a Backstage "30" but was an 18w amp .
That was a great little amp. I ran a Morley Power-Wah-Boost and an MXR Flanger through it and thought that was the shit when I was in my middle school garage band.
I'm just getting into repairing amps and flipping them (looking for my first victim) and through my online amp browsing came across a Backstage 30 just like the one I used to have. I think it was about $40 and I almost bought it for old times sake.
Mine is 20 watts, I was a bit nervous it had a transformer problem, at my dads it was very noisy that's what prompted me to look into possibly replacing it, but I just plugged it in at home and its quiet as can be, must have been some really noisy power at my dads house! Maybe I'll just keep this as my practice combo, I've had it near 40 years LOL. Interesting thing, a few years ago I built a speaker lead to plug the amp into a cab to see what it sounded like and nope it sounds better as a combo!
still have mine do you?
You could look at the DR Z Maz Jr 18 NR? The new 1X12 is lighter and these amps are killer and loud as hell. Nice and small but a new one will cost you
If you see a Lead 12 come up for a decent price, grab it. Those are cool little practice amps despite being solid state. I don't know why marshall doesn't just produce it again today. It smokes other solid state amps for that Marshall crunch.
Those old Peavey amps had horrible speakers in them, and I bet that a bright celestion style with decent bass handling would do yours some favors, if you have one hanging around or can find something used to try with it. I wouldn't spend any significant money to upgrade it. Those are tough ass little amps though. They will probably outlive the cockroaches after the apocalypse.
Lead 12 yeah I was thinking about that
Theyre not $50 any more
I don't. I traded in the Morley and Flanger years ago when I bought an MG30 and some Zoom pedal. There's a part of me that wishes I still had them to mess around with on occasion, but now that I have the Helix they'd probably just be collecting dust. Hopefully they are both still in service somewhere and someone else is enjoying them.
Nice! What's it sound like?
in that morley, the light is also the fuse. i always thought that was pretty cool.
yes for the win.
What did you do there?
