Snarling Dog Tweed Amp Stomp Box

I got a chance to play through a Snarling Dog Tweed Amp stomp box with harp. A friend of mine bought one to use with his Fender Blues Jr. I don't normally advise people to use emulators when a pretty good tube amp can be found on eBay cheap.
This is a fair to good little box that mostly sounds like a small Class A amp with a 12AX7, 6V6 and 5Y3. These kid of little 3 tube amps, like Fender Champs or Gibson Skylarks give a snarly overdrive that's good for a dirty Chicago sound.
My friend's Blues Jr. tends to be too clean, especially at lower volumes. The Snarling Dog Tweed was just the boost that he needed. The Blues Jr, sounded nice and crunchy. I could turn the volume up a ways and I liked the way my JT-30 sounded. You can stomp a button on the thing and it boosts the volume quite a bit, but with a crystal mic, all it did was send it into feedback land.
The snarling dog tweed emulator is available all over the web and there were a couple on eBay. You should be able to pick one up about $50, maybe less, easily. 

 

Buy the Book!

I cleaned up my tab for Sonny Boy's Help Me and made it into a short book. There's a Kindle version for 99 cents, and if you buy the paperback you get the Kindle free.

Playing "Help-Me" In the Style of Sonny Boy Williamson II: A step by step, note for note analysis of some of Sonny Boy's Signature Riffs

I also write Science Fiction, so you can sample some of my best stories. Also available in Kindle format.

The JT30 Page Popular links

I began collecting data about the microphones used by blue harp players before there was an internet. I began organizing it into JT30.com in the late 1990s. I accumulated more stuff than I remember. This is some of it.

A collection of songs and riffs that I’ve worked out over the years, plus some libraries of stuff I’ve converted to tablature. I’ve included most of the notes and instructions that helped me when I was learning to play blues harmonica.
