Get Paired Up for the Holidays



Whether you want to take cues from the greats or forge your own path, we’ve put together a list of some classic and not-so-classic match ups to ensure you’re not alone under the mistletoe this Holiday.


  • This one’s pretty recognizable, an AC30 with the Burns Red Special and you can, you can rock us.

284a3eb7 2eb7 4ff9 85b3 b08469531a87 zps95f17547 Get Paired Up for the Holidays


  • A tried and true matchup for the twang or keeping it swampy, but done in a little more modern way. ’59 Bassman Clone w/ Spring Reverb and USA G&L ASAT.

IMG 0212 zps1f3ea80f Get Paired Up for the Holidays


  • Here’s one for the bassists: A Blackline SVT on a half-fridge with the buttery short-scale Musicmaster. It’s like you always wanted a Fridge and P-Bass but enjoy having a lower back.

IMG 0213 zps0bc85f27 Get Paired Up for the Holidays



  • Keeping it jazzy is this 1951 National and ’57 Gretsch Corvette, but don’t think it’s all Merlot and finger-snaps. You’ll get a surprising amount of Cartwright-esque crunch from these guys all while looking oh so good.

IMG 0215 zpsfc61c4e7 Get Paired Up for the Holidays


  • Venturing back to the classics, how about a Drip-edge Reissue Twin with a “Western” Partscaster. Clean, loud, and punchy.

IMG 0216 zps796dac34 Get Paired Up for the Holidays


  • Don’t think we forgot you ’80s shredders/lefties! Here’s a wild ADA Quad Tube 2×12″ and Lefty Ibanez S Series. All the gain/modulation/modeling you’d need, until Line 6 came along.

IMG 0217 zps2255f2ae Get Paired Up for the Holidays


  • Okay these are just meant for each other – don’t even try to fight it! 12-String Semi-hollow Bass and Kustom PA200. All the octaves!

IMG 0214 zpsae2e1348 Get Paired Up for the Holidays


  • Do you like to play chords? Do you like to play extended chords? Do you like to hear them? Here you go: a 1968 Super Reverb and an 80s L5-S, practically made for each other, a decade apart.

IMG 0287 zps91459f71 Get Paired Up for the Holidays


  • For those slightly off the beaten path, get into this ’50s Bell Sound Tube PA Head. With a pair of 6V6s and this Stingray II you can go from shimmery cleans to great indie-rocking crunch.

IMG 0289 zps64d5e59f Get Paired Up for the Holidays



If you’re interested in beefing up your signal chain or you’re in search of that special tone, these pedal combos will definitely get you somewhere.


  • Somewhat of an homage to Mr. Page with the Germanium Treble Boost a la Rangemaster (Pork ‘n’ Beans) and Uni-vibe, add a locally built Analog Delay (Moon Child) to the mix and you’ve got a great riffing/lead tone.

IMG 0290 zpsf8d5857f Get Paired Up for the Holidays


  • Inspired by Gilmour, the Fish Press (LA-2A-ish) plus Special Twosome (Modern Fuzz or Classic Muff-styles) and the El Capistan will have you slow-bending and space-vibing in no time.

IMG 0291 zps6656c2bf Get Paired Up for the Holidays


  • This one’s great for bass players and guitar players alike, whether you’re getting psych’ed out or aiming for a J. White/D. Auerbach thing. Russian Big Muff + Octave Up? Yes, please.

IMG 0292 zpsb530868f Get Paired Up for the Holidays


  • When you want results, stick with what’s worked for 30+ years. The first overdrive offering, pre-Tubescreamer, with some mellow phase and added sustain from the Forest Green, you won’t be disappointed.

IMG 0293 zpsdfd26cd1 Get Paired Up for the Holidays


  • Do you hate cleans? Are you never satisfied with how mangled your tone is? If you can’t wreck something with this combo you should probably just quit.

You’re Super Not Gonna Believe This…..

If you’ve lost faith that all the good deals are gone…that you’ll never find that old lady with a ’59 Burst in her attic…that you’ll never find a MINIMOOG at a yard sale for $20 (we actually witnessed this)….that you’ll never find a 1961 Fender Super amp at Goodwill for $20…oh wait. That just happened.

A very lucky gentleman was looked upon favorably by the Gear Gods and picked up this Fender Super Amp for $20. $20!!?! All original everything; tubes, speakers, all components. To top it off, it’s production #17 – one of the earlier Supers to be built that year.

We gave him two options: Don’t touch it and sell it right away for all the dollars, or, have us update the high voltage components and rock forever. He chose the second option. We replaced some components, added a 3-prong, A/B’d tubes (settled on the OG power tubes – there’s a touch more top end and punch with new JJ’s vs. the old RCA’s, but that’s a swap for another day). The same can be said for the speakers; a new pair could potentially have more bottom and punch but there’s just something special about those old Jensens….

It’s a little beat up cosmetically, but that doesn’t spoil it one bit. The moral of the story is: keep searching because the deals are out there and you can find them!!

This is right before we started replacing the failing high-voltage poly caps, (“Oh no, not the yellow Astrons“) – if they’re leaking voltage they’re not doing their job and need to go. IMG 7988 zpsafb2dd43 Youre Super Not Gonna Believe This.....
