I'm familiar with that site. That page hasn't been updated in like 5 years or so.

I've seen a number of various amps with the PANaramic name. It seems as if PANaramic wasn't in the manufacturing business.
What they did was buy up amps and attach their company logo on them.
My amp is about 7 years older than that one. It predates the PANaramic-branded model, but they insides are identical.

How many different amps PANaramic slapped a name plate on I have no idea.

They are spelling it PanAramic. Pretty intresting stuff. There are of couple of others from that site.

And a blurb here:

Really cool old stuff. Not too much available on it. I'd bet you have an extremely rare item there.

When I was researching my amp years ago, I emailed vintage amp collectors all over the world.

I never did get any info. Most of the guys were pretty intrigued by what I had.
I got a great runaround, though.
One email reply after another would say, "I have no idea, but you may want to try asking this guy..."

I sent a couple hundred emails, and learned nothing.

One guy replied, "I'll give you $5,000 for that amp."

I declined. It would have been a $4900 gain on a $100 investment.

I knew I had to find one of these amps after I heard the one my friend's dad had in his basement. He refused to sell it to me.

I searched for 5 years to get my hands on the one I have, which I found in a very unlikely place.

Nice amp indeed, but getting back to the Album cover thing, you got to admit that Mark made a good point about Pink Floyd 's DSM art work being a culture icon.

You definitely see it on a lot more places then you see pictures of Abbey Road.

Hey Dood, congrats that amp is a nice rare find.

With four 7591 ouput tubes, does it create 100watts?

Amp must have a Fendery sound to it.

I also thought that it had a 8" Utah speaker together with the 12" combo

I bet the combo has a great definition tone to it.

Dark Side of The Moon IS a cultural icon, no doubt.

But... there is no denying that Abbey Road is as much, if not more of a cultural icon.

There is a webcam trained on the most famous street crossing in the entire world, where all day long you can watch pedestrians imitate the cover photo from Abbey Road.

Click HERE if you dont believe me.

(Wait until the afternoon. You'll see people in groups of four, one wearing white, crossing all day long for a photo op.)

Is there a webcam streaming live on broadcasting from the dark side of the moon? ----- I didn't think so.

No, not really very "Fendery" at all. I don't know what I'd compare it to.

The amp had a lot of "punch", especially in the midrange.

If you can stand to listen to 4+ minutes of 3 totally S###-faced guys from all different walks of life, jamming for the first time ever, and recorded on a $5 radio shack tape recorder, you can get a slight idea of what that amp sounds like.

Listen:

This was the Danelectro, plugged in to an MXR distortion pedal.
I switch over to clean towards the final minute.

Watch at YouTube

(It's not exactly what you'd call my best guitar work, but I think I do have some cool licks in there.)

LOL, yes I do believe you. I saw it on the news myself that they have cameras pointed at that particular point.

Don't tell me, you most be a big Beatles fan? And that is OK if you are, but I am just not.

I like all kinds of music but on the Rock side, I like Pink Floyd, Led Zeppelin, Jimi Hendrixs, ZZ Top, Van Halen, SRV, U2 and most of the great classic bands of the 70's more then I like the Beatles, I kind of think the Beatles were overrated.

But a whole lot of people did like them, so that makes them a really great band just not so much in my eyes. But like I said, it makes for an interesting discussion and I enjoy hearing different opinions.

Trying to separate the music from the art work, here some more that I have liked over the years,

Van Halen 1984
Led Zeppelin IV
Bob Seger Aganist the wind
Aisa (first album)

No, not really a big Beatles fan. I like a lot of the Beatles' most recent stuff. Not big on the early stuff.
I have ton of respect for John Lennon. That dude was brilliant.

DSotM is one of my favorite albums, WAY above Abbey Road, and you want to accuse me of being biased?

I said you most be a Beatles Fan, no where did I ever say you were biased.

I already saw where you listed Dark Side as one of your favorite all time albums, so it's all good.

And you are right about John Lennon, he as well as Paul McCartney were very, very, good indeed.

John Lennon's Imagine is one of my favorite songs.

Hey not bad Dood, cool I like the Reggae riff scale in "Am# Melodic Minor" (Am#,F#,G#,Am#).

Sounds like the amp has a vintage tremolo and reverb effect built in?

For you guys out there that can do more then fly helicopters I was wondering what other hobbies you might have
I have been into photography for longer than RC, since the late 60's. From early on, I did all my own developing/printing. I also fly full size airplanes, and have a reflector telescope that I use to look at planets, moon. Past hobbies were hang gliding and ham radio (call sign PY1XJE), I built my own 2m transceiver and even sold a few dozen CB fixed-base ground-plane antennas. Hiking and traveling are also things I enjoy.

"Am# Melodic Minor"
Really? lol. That was just a regular-ass natural minor pentatonic (AFAIK)

If you think you heard "melodic minor", what you more than likely heard was a mistake. Cuz if I was really playing melodic minor, that would imply that I know what I'm doing, which I don't. I just do what feels right.

The guy playing the piano, he was a music major at Northern Illinois U, studying percussion. He lived in the Caribbean for a few years studying music for a while. His influences are Jazz and Reggae.
That guy was AMAZING on the steel pan!!

I think what we were going for was more of a Samba feel, but it probably did turn out to be a Reggae.
-------------------------------------------------

The amp has a built in Vibrato (as it's called) function. I was using it at a very low level, but I think what you're hearing is just the cheap tape recorder.

It's also got a built in spring reverb.

-------------------------------------------------

I don't like a lot of effects.
For effects, all I use is a Boss DD-5 Delay pedal, and a BF-2 Flanger. (Delay + Flange sounds badass when you have the Delay in front of the flange )

I've played for hours by myself, with my Flange & Delay setup. I usually find myself in a groove pouring out some kind of Dark Side of the Moon inspired jam. It can get intense. I just close my eyes and play.

I also use a Wah and a Volume pedal (The volume pedal, when used right, can simulate a tape reverse effect)

Occasionally I hook up my MXR distortion, but prefer to just hammer the tube amp. I don't like distortion too much.

Over the past couple years, I've been playing with a new toy, this "Akai Headrush E2". It's a looping pedal. You record a riff, push a button and it plays the riff back in a loop. And you can add multiple layers on top of that.

That thing is a ton of fun.
I'm still not that good with it yet.

Watch this guy, he's pretty good with it:

Lol Dood, That cracks me up. I like that, "I just do what feels right".

Because of the F#,G# chord arraingment in the song.
The song lends itself by nature in using a Descending Melodic Minor Mode. For the most part of the song, you are playing in Dorian Mode over Am# that gives you that Minor Penatonic feel but with the extra "C" sweet note in the Dorian scale.

Here's a cool scale chart to show:

Boogie Mark V
You bas-terds!! I was really trying to avoid even looking at the new Mark V! Of course now I will have to investigate

I have a mid 90's dual rec that has been 'tweaked' by voodoo amps in NY that I have been happy with. Guess I have to check out the Mark V now...

This is a great thread with a ton of cool guitars.
Here is my Washburn Custom shop Idol(with a few requests from me).

This is our old band which was recorded in my studio. Probably not most of you guys cup of tea but I'm a head banger from way back

Ive found you end up learning more by listening to a CD and figuring out how to play/emulate lead frazes peice by peice, rather than wasteing hours on end learning fancy scales, invariably you just end up forgeting them anyway, perhaps its different if your composing your own music, I dont know any scales by name at all, but I seem to be doing OK learning Knopfler/Straits lead breaks, Im sure much of what Im doing are parts of different scales, I just play lead solos the way I here them not scales.
Ive found Utube has been a handy tool for learning lead breaks, but you need to be careful who ever your trying to copy isent doing it wrong.
