Tweed 410 - Fender Bassman Video

The Vox AD50VT has a model called Tweed 410. It is an imitation of the famous Fender Bassman amp. The Vox does a good job of this. In fact, this amp model is the one I use the most of all amp models on this amp.

I have found that this model works especially well with external pedals. This amp doesn't necessarily need pedals, but if you want to use it that way, it works quite well. I have used the amp this way many times at live gigs, with great results.

I found this amp model to cut through really well in a band setting. My other tube amp had trouble being heard clearly when I played a country gig, so I switched to the Vox Valvetronix and wowsa - my notes stuck out like sore thumb (in a good way)!

Dave, on this clip, I'm just using a bit of reverb as the effect. I keep the eq around 12 o'clock for all 3 knobs, and keep the gain low enough so it doesn't distort too much. Just use common sense.

I always enjoy your videos, and especially your playing lessons - always stealing your licks and good ideas about sounds for my own Valvetronix amp.


One suggestion - in addition to the amp model settings, could you briefly highlight some the other amp settings/effects that you used to get your sound?

Thanks Todd!
I have heard about that pedal, yes. However, I just bought a Boss DD-20, a really cool pedal. I am having fun with it.
You'll have to tell me all about that pedal once you get it!

Sounds great, Robert. Have you heard about the new Dunlop/MXR Carbon Copy? It's an analog delay pedal w/600ms of time and selectable modulation on the repeats. I am super excited about it - especially since it has a footprint matching that of the std MXR stuff, not to mention many others. They're not supposed to be available 'til Mar/Apr, so I'm waiting w/baited breath.

Hope all is well with you.
