Ampeg Gemini IIPublished on 09/03/10 at 20:17
The Ampeg Gemini II is an electric guitar combination amplifier consisting of two separate channels. I don't know what year(s) this amp was made, but they seem to be pretty rare. This is indeed a tube amplifier, consisting of a single speaker and two sets of 1/4" inputs for each channel. Each channel has both an input for guitar and one for accordion! Of course I presume this is a joke, and a pretty funny one at that. It also has built in tremolo and reverb effects.

The Ampeg Gemini II is an electric guitar combination amplifier consisting of two separate channels. I don't know what year(s) this amp was made, but they seem to be pretty rare.

Of course I presume this is a joke, and a pretty funny one at that. It also has built in tremolo and reverb effects.

UTILIZATION

The configuration of the Ampeg Gemini II is pretty simple, with recognizable parameters for sure. Each channel has knobs for bass, treble, and volume, with the left channel having parameters for the tremolo for speed and intensity, and the right channel having a reverb level knob. I don't believe that any users will be feeling lost, so no manual should be necessary.

SOUNDS

The Ampeg Gemini II is a really great sounding guitar amplifier. We have one of these at the studio where I'm currently working and it doesn't see as much use as it should. However, when it does it brings a smile to the face of the user. It has a great low end presence, which I guess is a byproduct of the fact that Ampeg mostly makes bass amps. Due to this it has a lot of grit and crunch, and can really hold down your guitar tone. I've used the Gemini II with a few different guitars, and it definitely brings out the best in each. The built in effects are pretty good, but not as good as those you'll find on a Fender amp.

OVERALL OPINION

Overall, the Ampeg Gemini II is a great guitar amp, and one that is little known at that. It's great that it has the two separate channels, giving you flexibility and wiggle room in your sounds. The Gemini II is perfect for use in the studio, but would work well under any circumstances. My guess would be that it would be pretty hard to find this amp for sale out there, as it really doesn't seem like they made too many of them. However, if you're interested in one I'd keep your ears and eyes out for one as it would definitely be worth the wait if you couldn't get one right away!

Tube amp 1965, 2 tens of Watts, 2 channels for guitarists / singers, reverb and tremolo, two inputs of different impedance per channel, volume, bass and treble on each channel, reverb control on the one control of the tremolo on the other, but unfortunately I discovered too late that through footswitch I've never had one can have two on the same channel. I recovered two fingers of the dumpster so I do not know what were the lamps and the original HP. HP is 12 inches but I put a 15 because there is plenty of room, there was also a model fitted well (G-15) and I put two 6L6 power tubes, preamp 2 12AX7 and 12AU7, ECC81 a grinder and another for the spring reverb.

UTILIZATION

The lack of control for the midrange forced to play on his guitar tone and its potential effects to find the right shape for it but it's all good ...

SOUNDS

tastes and colors ... I would say it is built for Surf Music through its Spring reverb and monstrous treble but there is super versatile. In singing amp (2nd channel), it is pretty average but I play it in stereo to keep a signal void and there is magic!

OVERALL OPINION

I've had nearly 20 years. This is not the best amp 60's I had but still much better than today's amps that I find no personalities (for most main stream brands at least). More market two separate amps has always been limited channels so it deserves some interest. Its advantages: spring reverb, tremolo (Indeed I hate to base), its sharp, its power / weight ratio, its wheels, its versatility (with good pedal can even make metal or hardcore) and its look (mine is green like Green Racing Vox but a little lighter) with a kind of padded leather (leatherette?). If I find one again and I sold it one of my kidneys, I live on resumes!
