Dave’s brassy SE-5a

“Just to let you know that I’ve posted a few more pictures of my SE5a build if you want them for the site. And when posting them I realised it is coming up to two years old now! Can’t believe how quickly it has passed – other amps have come and gone (including a rather fine silverface Fender Twin) but the SE-5a is still holding firm as my #1.

“Today I gave it a bit of a clean and cracked out the Brasso to give the etched plaque some TLC. I’m really pleased with how it turned out and the way it is starting to build up a patina. And boy does this amp sound great with the Gretsch’s DynaSonics. It doesn’’t have the Twin’’s crisp shimmer but it I love the punchy, rounded, but not overwhelming mids.”
