    Interesting thanks Bill. I got that Tremolux/ampeg mercury info from the GGJaguar Guild site. Maybe he just meant the designs are similar (trem no reverb, and other features). I've never heard a tweed 50s tremolux, but I've heard the vibrolux and that one sounds nice. I have heard 2 66-Js and they are definatley that tweedy creamy meaty tone. Mine sounds great , just needs some luv.

    The 2 x 6sn7 tubes are the reverb send and recovery.

    "Alternatively, you could just go the ultra-relic route with it. Basically go for a look that says the amp was on fire and they put it out using belt sanders."

    Neato. I love the early '60s Ampegs…didn't know the 98 RT was in that ballpark. I have a Super Echo Twin (two Reverberockets in one cabinet) that I often play my Bluesbird through. Guess it makes sense that they'd work so well together. :)

    Just to clear up some web misinformation promulgated by the Ampeg clip above, the Reverberocket was not introduced until mid-1961. It is neither a '59 nor a '60.
