Too fat in the lower-mids for the tunings I usually use but sounds good in standard tuning.

Sounds like the opposite of the BE module, hmm...
I notice it when I switch to the VH4 and the chunk comes back

Just grabbed an RM4 and RT2/50 from my mate (leaving him with his RM100). I already have an RM100, but wanted to fiddle with the rack dual powertube setup fun. I've also landed the Yuneo dual mod kit for the RM4 and the cathode biasing switch that I have yet to install.

Anyone got a dual MTS mod or Synergy mod they want to get rid of so I can test it all?

That's a good deal, I am a fan of the clean on the OS. It is tricky to balance the OD channel with the clean though

Thanks guys! knew there'd be something out there. I'm intrigued by the OS, and may hit you up later about that one, but for my current purposes the BE seems to fit the bill. pm'd

Every time I hang out here, I regret selling my RM4 and RT2/50, and that I'm no longer one of the cool kids :-(

Great to see there is still much enthusiasm for this awesome gear though :thumbup:

I think I now have your RM4 and RT2/50 now Oleg, by way of Werdna. The RT2/50 currently has 6550s and KT88s.

I modded the topboost module to be a Cornford Harlequin/Carrera but it's turned out so so. Think i'll redo it as an Orange Thunderverb. So many options...

Actually that's not true, I only have the RM4. I got the RT2/50 off Trademe

Nice, glad it has a good home. I also wish they made a 6v6/el84 version of that power amp, that is more my thing.
