Please consider Tone Gems a resource for vintage guitars, amps and gear of non-repute. In fact, the 5XL is identical in electronics and appearance to the earlier Silvertone 14 amps that were built by Danelectro.
Dislikes: Cheap cabinet materials and shoddy construction. But with only three tubes pushing 5-watts it’s more fun to dial this puppy to 10! Here is Jon playing his modified Squier thinline Tele through the 5XL.Each of the three guys takes Jo out on a unique date, close to his own heart.However, what none of them know is that Slade can watch the dates.There were a few models with a tube phase splitter in them, but for the most part Music Man amplifiers used the faster responding common Grid, Cathode Coupled drive from a solid state front end that players characterized as "loud as hell". 15 of the 28 pages from 1976 catalogue were dedicated to amplification.Preamp tubes: solidstate preamp circuit with 12AX7 phase-inverter tube.
