Not that one... I bought that one new in 1982.

My second RIC TF2140 a FG 620 12 belonged to the Irish Singer Songwriter Chris De Burgh - before I got it...

Rick 330 through Mesa Rectoverb head and Mesa Rectifier Std 4x12 cabinet; Dunlop wah, MXR Full Bore Metal pedal for solos; DOD digital delay for 'Crawl Up and Die' (Stray Cats). The Recto head can get any sound. If I don't want to lug that around I use a Mesa Rocket 44 1x12 combo. California is so cool.

Hi everyone
I have just bought a ric 360/12 c63 and was wondering if anyone has a rough guide of where to set up a vox ac30 tb with alnico blues for a nice clean sound

Depending on circumstance & mood, w/my 370/12JG, 370/12MG VP & 360/12c63, I generally use either my Vox AC15TB2 or my Fender Power Chorus ("the poor man's JC-120"). With my 325v63 & 325/12v63, I typically enjoy using my Vox Pathfinder SMR "Mini-Stack" (there must just be something about the Mini-Stack that pairs nicely with the short scales.. ;- ) )

Since we all got the coolest and yet most awesome, beautiful sounding guitars on this planet, I'd think we share what kind of amp's the RIC's play through.
PS: Would be fun if you mentioned your model of the RIC. ;)



I play my Ric 360 and Gretsch Country Gentleman through a Vox AC30VR. It has a great sound.

Ezio -- I don't know if anybody every responded to your Vox AC 30 settings inquiry from March, but maybe an idea on maximizing your clean tone would be to try a lower gain tube, such as a 12au7 in the V2 position. This is helpful also for accentuating the tonal differences between your Normal and Top Boost channels by adding more clean headroom in the Top Boost.

There are some interesting comments and dialogue on the equivalent of "wine-tasting" various old Preamp, Power and Rectifier tubes in AC 30's here
http://www.vintageamps.com/plexiboard/v ... 1f#p825938

As you've already got the alnico blue speakers, that's a plus for obtaining the cherished Ric-Vox chime so many folks are looking for. Good luck in your quest for that Ric-Vox tone !
