ah ok, that makes more sense, just you said you were just going to use it for effects so... I'm totally rebelling against effects again, though the bellbirds love them. But hey, the bogner has 3 awesome channels ;)

I spent a good few hours with the JCM this afternoon. Played along to some Rage, about half of the Foo Fighters last album, and some of Slash's first solo album.

I really do love this amp, and I'm not missing pedals at all. If I were using it in a band, I think I'd be pretty happy with a tuner pedal and a clean boost (or maybe a TS-9). Using the guitar volume I can get a pretty wide variety of sounds.

The only thing I'd change is channel switching. I've heard that you can't use an EHX Switchblade cus if you plug into the high and low inputs one defeats the other. It'd be nice to switch between them. The low input is plexi goodness and the high input is great for hard rock (obviously).

I wanted to try what a 10" and 12" would sound like together. The simple answer, at least in this case is, choice.

Very 3D, the cab is very alive, plenty of woodiness. It's great with the high gain sound on the Matamp C7. I've found pine cabs can be too alive, but with the lower volume amps this one sounds quite remarkable. Feedback enhancing too. Lot's of fun.

It's pine with ply baffle. I got the red tolex cheap locally and had everything else lying around. It's small-ish, light and has sorta Fender Custom Shop amp, off set vibe thing going on.

Nice! I got a couple of Weber 10's sitting here waiting for the next project. Now you've given me the idea of breaking up my 2x12 Celestion green and blue and pairing each with a 10!

Very nice Unique!
Indeed I often wonder where Norman is now. Probably wintering with his mother in Guildford. A cat, rain, Vim under the sink, and both bars on. But old now, there is no true beauty without decay.
