Re: Sundown amp? What is it?
"Of course you're right, there were at least two 100 watt models with  
6L6s, the Artist 66 and the Artist 100 which were succesors to the  
original 2x 6550 100 Artist, IIRC. For some reason I thought Oeland said  
his Artist had two 6L6s. I guess that's what I get for assuming :) I've  
run across a couple of people that had 2x 6550 Artists and thought they  
had 50 watt amps because there were only two power tubes.  
Cool book BTW, I need to pick up a copy."
hi steve!  
great to be back in touch. yep--i've got one of the old dual 6550 Artist heads. dennis wanted to mod it the way he did in the '80s to 6L6s, but didn't have the time before i needed it back for the AMPEG book photo shoot. (it's in the center color section, with an Oliver head) if you need a book, please let me know. (i put you in the credits for helping with Sundown info. early on)  
best, bill
