If anyone is interested it's item 262995265287 on Ebay and will end on Saturday 27th May 17.   There's no reserve and the last time I looked it had one bid at the starting bid price of ?25.00!

Next will be a Marshall JCM900 50w 1x12 combo (4501).  Well-used, but in "TiptonAmps"-top nick (ie serviced by Trevor Ridney aka Tipton Amps).  If you have any interest in that DM me and we can talk about a deal - it'll go on eBay otherwise.

Sad news - I doubt I'd be playing the guitar if it weren't for Chuck Berry.  Surely the best lyricist too?

Not sure if any other members went - I know TiptonAmps was poorly and couldn't make it. 
TBH I didn't really enjoy it as much as I'd hoped - I don;t the venue is buig enough
I got there about 12 o'clock on Sunday and it was heaving/deafening!  Bedroom shredders plugged into every amp.....
I didn't feel it was worth staying too long, I was hoping to get a feel for a few different axes, but the whole event was too frantic.
I'll get up early next year!

Very little Rob!  It is lighter and quieter than the BJ and sound-wise the two are very alike (ie great!).  The Session has a couple of extra sounds too - mine has the optional Blackface and Presence switches.  The first is great for "glass" and the second flatters a Les Paul nicely.

Very chuffed with it and they are now sold as complete combos with a variety of options (cabinet finish, speaker).  There a 45W version too.

The Session Amp is on this recording - from about 1.30 you can hear a slightly crunchy lead sound.   This is back when the clone was installed in the Fender cab ie through the Fender speaker.

I thought I had decided and was part-way through taking the Marshall cab apart.  Unusually for me I decided to check on the practicalities first.  The speaker is over-specified for the modest 22 watts that the Session produces.  It is rated at 150 watts which is ok except it is six inches deep and wouldn't fit inside the much smaller Session cab.  Ok - I'll put the Marshall cabinet back together now!

To the left is a newly acquired Fender Blues Junior cabinet (with a Session badge now) and I have put my Session clone amp and a new reverb unit in, no speaker.  To the right is my Fender amp all put back together.  The amps sound very similar, but only if I play them both through the same speaker - the Celestion that's inside the Marshall cabinet.  The standard Fender speaker (made by Eminence) is much brighter and sparklier.  The Marshall cab has a closed back which accentuates the bassy beefy characteristics of the speaker.  I'm not sure what speaker to put in the Session cab - for the time being I'll either carry on using the Marshall extension cab or I might take the speaker out and put it into the Session.   Happy days.
