"I love tubes but the practicality, reliability and versatility gets buried by the top modelers, especially for live players. I'm actually hoping it'll kill me amp gas!"... The next Tui's ad maybe :mrgreen:

It kinda reminds me of Steely Dan but with Mick Hucknell's cousin doing the vocals! I like it :)

Re: Comparing JBL E120 to Eminence GA64

Always free for you and JB, make sure you do the 'HANDSHANDY20' on checkout.

Re: EF86 or 806 where to get?

I built a Trinity TC15 head which is similar to the Artisan 30. Was after that Vox Matchless thing. I still have it.
