PG's Joe Coffey is On Location at the 2009 New York Amp Show where he visits the Goodsell Amps room. In this video, we get our very first taste of Goodsell's brand new amp, the Labrador 40. The Labrador 40 is a combination of Goodsell's 33 Custom frame with the front end of their Black Dog 50, a solid state rectifier and NOS 7189 tubes. Richard describes this amp as a fundamental EL84 amp that covers the Vox range, but lends itself to the Black Dog 50 fans with a plexi-esque vibe.

A maze of modulation and reverberations leads down many colorful tone vortices.

A lot of cruel fates can befall a gig. But unless you’re a complete pedal addict or live in high-gain-only realms, doing a gig with just a reverb- and tremolo-equipped amp is not one of them. Usually a nice splash of reverb makes the lamest tone pretty okay. Add a little tremolo on top and you have to work to not be at least a little funky, surfy, or spacy. You see, reverb and modulation go together like beans and rice. That truth, it seems, extends even to maximalist expressions of that formula—like the SolidGold FX Ether.
