Neat Little Amp

Postby Steve Moran » Mon Feb 19, 2018 4:21 pm

Just wanted to share that I found a neat little amp at the pawnshop. It's a Kustom 66 Dart. Believe it's a 6.5" speaker but it could be 8" - haven't taken the back off to measure it. It's a closed back solid state amp with the tuck n roll covering. It says 25 watts on the back and mine is a red one. Believe they were made around 2006. It really has a good sound; :) very nice for a Bigsby-equipped guitar, steel string w/pickup, or classical with a pick-up. It also puts out enough volume I think it could work in a small, quieter room like a small coffee shop or something similar. Has a very pleasant delay and reverb built into it. The rhythm channel is really nice for Chet style playing. The distortion channel is very nice also and sustains the notes for a long time. Anyway just having fun playing through it. I have other amps that enjoy playing through like the JC77, JC50, Peavey Delta Blues w/15" JBL, Pignose Crossmix, etc. but have been choosing to play through this one lately. Haven't tried the Gibson CEC through it yet but imagine it will sound good with that also. Keep on pickin fellow Chetboarders!

in the Completed Items listing. You'll see some white tuck n roll versions and a blue one. Mine is just like those but red.
Thanks.
