The question comes after the introduction ;-)
I got this amp in a swap deal. I have 3 other amps, good amps, but this Convertible starts to be the one I always play. Both channels are so great. I don't turn on my pedal board, maybe sometimes a reverb instead of the build-in reverb (which is great and lush), and sometimes delay. The amp it self produce lovely cleans and rock'n roll sound in channel 1. In Channel two it goes up to hard rock and can even reach some fuzz tones a la "Tall Font" Russian Muff. The amp is very versatile. I like playing in the style of Black Keys, Clark. Jr, Hendrix, SRV, Smashing Pumpkins, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Led Zeppelin... just like many other guitarists. And this amp can really do it, without any pedal and voiced like it was delivered from the factory. I'm not so good at describing amps, but it seems to range from a Mesa Mark 1'ish to a Marshall Silver Jubilee'ish sound.
I'm trying to find some more information. I believe its from the early to mid 80's. It has EL-34's into a Celestion G12T-75.
Do anyone know what the price was back then? E.g. the MRSP? I believe it was not a cheap amp, but not expensive either. Even though I read that Bonamassa who fancy the 100W version (it has an attenuator and the channels do not share the EQ) wrote, that the Convertible amps was very expensive to make, and almost bankrupted Seymour Duncan.
Cheers, and thanks for any info that you can provide :-)
I have attached two pictures of my amp plus a Convertible 100W commercial with Jeff Beck ;-) ...also a youtube with Bonamassa talking about the 100W Convertible. And then a Convertible 100W youtube from a store, because it has the same blues/rock sound as mine (...and there are no decent recordings of the 60W out there):
