Video Review - Goodsell Valpreaux 21

December 21, 2010
PG's Shawn Hammond walks us through his most recent review--the Goodsell Valpreaux 21 combo--which is featured in the January 2011 issue of Premier Guitar.

Read the full print review here - http://www.premierguitar.com/Magazine...

The 21-watt Valpreaux weighs a very manageable 30 pounds—roughly three-quarters the heft of a blackface Deluxe Reverb—and it's available in any covering or grill-cloth option listed on Mojo Musical Supply's website. Ours came in striking red Tolex with a black-and-tan grill. Top-panel features include a delightfully simple EQ section with crème-colored Tone, Volume, and Gain knobs, as well as Reverb, Depth, and Speed knobs for the three-spring reverb and footswitchable, bias-vary tremolo circuit. There's also a metal vent beneath the handle to help keep the tubes cool so they last longer and operate more reliably. Other Valpreaux features include a 12" Goodsell RGH speaker modeled after a Celestion G12H, three 12AX7 preamp tubes, and a 5AR4/GZ34 rectifier tube that runs approximately 390 volts.
