Epifani Tour 555 (Piccolo).

Recommended Posts

Wanted to try these out as I liked the look of the features.

First gig last night, wonderful little fella.

Usual bass/mid/treble plus a mid cut & a "Vintage" button that is simulating Fender Bassman. Mute, gain & a great big volume rotary on the front. Easy to find on dark stages & I needed it to turn down last night.

DI level on back. Singer sound dood very happy! Best I've had sayeth he!

Enough power to say the least, the floor was bumping! Gain 10 o'clock, vol 11 o'clock.

First set with Mex P/J, vintage button on, rest of dials around noon, fabulous, from nice & smooth on Smiths & Bad Company, to chainsaw on Kaiser Chiefs. All done through tone & vol controls on a passive Mex.

Second set, rick 4004C11, flats, vintage off, mid cut off. Dear God, blew me away, from Steppenwolf to Tenpole Tudor to AC/DC, just great tones wherever I went on the rotaries (Rick electrics changed to pan, push pull  vol parallel/series, push pull tone/mid cut). And boy did I have to turn the Rick down, compared to the Fender.

1st number of 2nd set was American Idiot, little bit of "dirt" on it. One guitarist turned round, big  mouth :o followed by  :biggrin:.

Cracking amp, has everything I need & little I don't. Very happy bunny.

@karlfer looks nice. When you say "dirt", does it break up nicely if you're driving the front end?

Big fan of the Epifani amps. Recently got hold of the piccolo, but they do a 1000w power amp mod in the same chassis as this! Never ran out of grunt running 2 series 1 epifani 4x10’s! Immensely good fun!

Preamp gain wise, you can’t really push it to get any fuzz... if you wanted that sort of thing you’d have to put a pedal in line, or use the effects loop

Yeah, but bear in mind it's simulation, not the real thing. Pushing the gain with the "vintage" button in gives that bit of grit. The Rick certainly had a bit of his Lemmyness going on:). Unnecessarily :lol:
