My band got a gig at a party in Hawaii...true story...
I'm looking for amp advice. I still need to contact the backline company and see what they have. But right now at home I playthrough a Krinard modified Bassman-a sound I know I won't find elsewhere.
I know it would be silly to try amd transport my head, but doggone it sounds so good.
There should be a 65 reissue over there, amd that's the first thing I thought of that any backline company might have, but having never played a reissue twin...shoot, I just want it to sound right.

So, short of calling the company and finding out other options they might have,anyone got a recommendation? I'd even fly some tubes over if I thought changing them might provide an edge...any Jerry heads in HI?

You will be fine for one night with a 65 Twin reissue. Treble around 7-8, middle 5-6, and bass 0-3. Set your reverb and volume per taste. Play away and forget about it.

GratefulDeadTributeBands.com shows a few bands in HI. If you ever need a rig for Detroit I'd be happy to help out.

I recently migrated my gear into flight cases for traveling and just need to get the flight case for my Twin head. But since my rack also contains the CTP I usually leave the Twin for traveling. Good luck.
