Custom Verellen "35 watt" Hiwatt-ish head atop my 70s Hiwatt cab... I say "35 watt" because this thing is easily as loud as my '77 Custom 50 was, and sounds just as good...

Did you build this from a kit? Or some other way. I'm very intrigued

The amp itself is a Hayden Essex Blonde that i pulled from a combo and fixed up (needed a fair bit doing, plus I wanted to move the volume (Earthquaker Sound Projector was aesthetic inspiration)). I built the housing from scratch though and got the faceplate Etched at my girlfriends dad's work. It has its quirks (the reverb is super jacked up, you get some bleed from it if you crank it as if the amp was on full gain, so you can do a weird clean and dirty simultaneously). Not sure if I can/want to fix that yet.

That's awesome! I definitely got the earthquaker stylistic choices. Looks awesome! Reverb bleed sounds awesome, at least if it works how it sounds in my head haha

Honestly, it sounds like a Hiwatt. It's loud and clean and can be pushed into beautiful tube distortion with a boost. It's everything I miss about my Custom 50 without the headaches of maintaining a 40-year-old amp.

I do not actually. I just brought it to practice to try it out with the band. I just thought they looked awesome stacked together so I snapped a pic haha.

The Electric is by far and away the most bad ass amp I've ever owned. It's amazing. And I hope to have it for the rest of my life.
I LOVE THE MUFF!!

My 1966 Fender Bassman. Matching 2x12 cab, came with vintage Kustom speakers but I think I'll swap for some C12Ns soon. Sounds huge. Great cleans but crunches up nicely too. The channels are in phase so I often play out of the normal channel but w/ the bass channel jumped into instrument #2 of normal.

Thanks man. I use a silverface ('79) champ at home, but it just wasn't cutting it at band practice. I was trying to decide whether I wanted to buy something cheap and loud just to keep up in the mix, or buy a forever-amp. I think you can guess which one I picked.
