Review: Vintage 47 Mighty Mini, VA-185G, and Chicago Blues Tone Triple
Vintage 47 Amps - Hand built Instruments for sale | Vintage 47 Amps instrument Builder, USA
Common to all models are octal-base 6SL7 or 6SQ7 preamp and phase-inverter tubes, Baltic-birch-ply cabinets with solid pine bracing, authentic-style point-to-point wiring meaning no circuit boards , attached power cords, and niceties like stitched leather handles and aged lacquered-tweed covering with inlaid beading. It may look like something out of a post-war Buick Roadmaster, but this oval speaker sounds wonderful in this amp, facilitating a fat, mids-forward tone with a juicy, compressed feel and great top-end crinkle when you lay into it. Played with humbuckers and single-coils the Mini has ample clean range using the lower gain input, and it easily goes into distortion when driving into the more sensitive 1 jack. The new amp produces 18 watts via a pair of cathode biased tubes, making it one of the most powerful models in the V47 line. No biasing is required for this tube-rectified output stage—you can pop in different output tubes without breaking out a multimeter or oscilloscope—and the point-to-point wiring follows the original Valco octal tube circuitry employing a 6SQ7 NOS metal-jacketed preamp tube and a 6SL7 phase inverter.
