Samamp VAC 23 Guitar Amp Demo

  • gr8bluesgtr posted: 24 Oct at 11:22 am

    I have tried it, and while I like the clean tones, the overdrive channel did not suit my tastes.

  • turbostangtodd posted: 25 Oct at 9:27 pm

    Is this a class “A” amp? What tubes does it utilize? I wonder if it is similar to having a Deluxe Reverb (class a) with a 15″ speaker when at the 23 watt setting.
    I had Weber build me a 15″ speaker with a 2 ohm voice coil so I could swap it into my early 1970′s Super Reverb to get that Vibroverb feel going, but this will be running 45 watts which is going to be a bad thing for the neighbors.

    Thanks for your videos! I have learned a lot from them in the short time I have been using them.

    I’m not sure of all those specs, but it’s all on the Samamp (dot) com homepage.

  • turbostangtodd posted: 27 Oct at 8:39 am

    I did check their page, and that amp you got, when it is set at 23 watts, looks to be pretty similar to the Deluxe Reverb as far as the basics go. There is a lot more to it than that, but that makes me want to grab a 15″ speaker and wire it to my Deluxe. I like the sound of yours, but definitely something to save up for. I’m sure you will keep us updated on how it does over time too. Good review man! Thanks for showing something many of us probably would not have known about.

    Terrific review and amp !

    Holy Crap!

  • romeorosetv posted: 15 Nov at 12:14 am

    do you need pedals with this amp to get all the tones you got from your blues Jr? How does the Nobels ODR-s and Boss Eq pedals you use sound with this amp? Does this amp make the Blues Jr obsolete now? How does this amps tone compare to the Vibroverb Custom you have, can it get all the tones of the Vibroverb?

  • romeorosetv posted: 15 Nov at 12:34 am

    does this amp make any weird buzzing sounds? read somewhere some people experienced it, i’m not talking about 60 cycle hum from strats single coils but some kind of other buzzing. is it finger jointed pine & hand wired point to point?

  • romeorosetv posted: 15 Nov at 12:53 pm

    have you tried using the samamp and the blues jr together at the same time? srv used multiple amps all at the same time, usually a super reverb and a vibroverb.

  • romeorosetv posted: 15 Nov at 4:05 pm

    please post more videos of this amp playing songs like you played on the blues jr demo! thanks!!! sounds good, but i wanna hear more srv texas blues coming from this amp, show us more of what it can do, thanks!

  • romeorosetv posted: 15 Nov at 10:38 pm

    I read one of your comments where you say the vibroverb is the real deal, but at much louder volumes, but the samamp gets you there at lower volumes, but you said it’s lacking in the midrange compared to the vibroverb.

    so if all it’s missing is midrange, then can’t you add midrange with your boss eq pedals or nobels odr-s?

    have you tried it?

  • romeorosetv posted: 15 Nov at 10:40 pm

    did you sell your blues jr & vibroverb now that you have this?

    which guitar do you like best for texas blues, stauffer legend, rocketfire, grosh, your yellow fender, or the kws one?

  • gr8bluesgtr posted: 15 Nov at 11:32 pm

    The Nobels and Boss pedals sound good through this amp. Surprisingly enough, I actually like the sound of a TS-808 pedal through this amp, and I don’t like it through the Blues Junior. The Blues Junior is not obsolete. It is simply a smaller, less expensive amp with great tone :-) The Samamp is a bigger, better amp, with a bigger price tag. Both have their respective places.

  • gr8bluesgtr posted: 15 Nov at 11:32 pm

    Don’t know about the cabinet, and the only buzz I’ve heard is the awful single buzz that single coil guitars are cursed with.

  • gr8bluesgtr posted: 15 Nov at 11:33 pm

    I have not.

  • gr8bluesgtr posted: 15 Nov at 11:34 pm

    Sure thing. I think it’s a common thing for people to use an EQ at all times, just to smooth out any frequency balance issues with their rig. There’s also a mid boost on this amp. I think part of the midrange thing might be that the speaker is a really vintage sounding speaker, and they weren’t very midrangey.

  • gr8bluesgtr posted: 15 Nov at 11:35 pm

    No, I have both. The Blues Junior gets used when the baby is asleep, the Samamp gets used when I’m shooting lessons, and the Verb gets used never because it’s too freakin loud. It’s like the corvette in the garage that you keep a cover on and never drive. Maybe when I gig again :-)

  • rarebikes88 posted: 18 Nov at 8:57 pm

    that thing sounds great wish it wasnt so expensive also what pick ups are in the guitar?

  • 11FotoFlame11 posted: 24 Nov at 4:53 pm

    that is an absolutely outstanding tone sir. once i’ve picked my jaw up off the floor i’m sure i’ll have some questions…

  • galacticox4 posted: 08 Dec at 2:46 am

    i said it 5 minutes ago but i’ll say it again cause you did it again. i learned something new. It’s good to hear explanations about how the wattages are changing the sound.

  • dooseisleet posted: 14 Dec at 10:47 pm

    ( happy blues jr nos owner here )

    i’ma say this boutique samamp with its 2 pull tone adjusters sounds terrific. really sweet tone.

  • Eaglewings7465 posted: 15 Dec at 11:21 am

    it sounds almost just like stecie ray’s tone!

  • tatsandteles posted: 01 Jan at 12:28 pm

    You have demonstrated exactly what most people do not realize-power amp drive is where the real tone is. That and that there is no substitute for touch/technique. Extremely well done, great strat tones. I am looking into one of these, thanks to you. Happy New Year!!

  • LazyRockers posted: 11 Jan at 6:52 pm

    oh my, this sounds deadly!

  • jessedaman posted: 11 Jan at 8:41 pm

    this might just have to be my next amp, except with maybe a ceramic speaker
