Vintage 47 Super Tweed Concord NH

Like the VA-167, the 177 doesn’t melt into feedback when cranked, but its clarity and note definition are to be reveled in as your picking nuances and chord voicings shine with a rounded-off hue. Not a jangle machine for sure, but there are any number of amps that can give you that. The VA-177 is a throwback and proud of it, both aesthetically and sonically. And I, for one, say cheers to that!

Vintage 47 Super Tweed

VA-177 SUPER TWEED RESONATOR

If you’re ranking visual pop, a shiny Dobro resonator rates pretty high on the list. Based on a 1947-48 Valco Supreme circuit, the VA- 177 sports a big chrome resonator, right in the middle of its pinstriped tweed cab.With my Gibson SG and the amp’s Volume and Tone halfway up, the tones are big, round, and husky with a hint of snarling breakup when I really dug in. I wanted a bit more sheen so I dimed the Tone control for more top-end detail. Still, the overall vibe stayed the same, with a high-caloric midrange and a nice, taut bottom end that never flubbed out. With the Volume cranked, the VA-177 sings a bit more, but in a very controlled manner. Like the VA-167, the 177 doesn’t melt into feedback when cranked, but its clarity and note definition are to be reveled in as your picking nuances and chord voicings shine with a rounded-off hue. Not a jangle machine for sure, but there are any number of amps that can give you that. The VA-177 is a throwback and proud of it, both aesthetically and sonically. And I, for one, say cheers to that!
