I'll bet I would, but I'm broke a lot! I just scored an old A.M.P. BH420 for $300, and that's all folks until next year (it's a back-up for the TE head). But I won't poo-poo the new mini-heads,...

Any self-respecting carpenter will be affronted if you tell them they can't use their Estwing hammer. They just ain't hearing that kind of thing unless it's a sensible point in their view.

You know, I would walk out too if they demanded what axe I play. But I might audition for a gig where the req was a Fender. Might be a good reason why. Otherwise, I'm the bass player, deal with it.

Tried the kick-back version. Tight and warm, not obnoxious but sits very nice in a small band. Does not get lost. Neat amp, I'd get one if I had the scratch.

Have you tried standing the SWR on it's side? Word has it that speakers arranged in a vertical orientation will give up a more 'hearable' sound, and a little more of it. Dunno, just a thought. ...

Nothing wrong with an old beat up amp! Doesn't the SWR do it for you? Man, I'd use that Super Redhead with an extension cab- maybe a Bag-End SD-15. Done deal.

No one's going to kill you bro. Now, my Burner is very upper-midsy-honky when passive. I need a new pre circuit and can't afford it yet, so I'm just doing passive. I am not getting on with it yet,...

I got a Burner CR4 in a trade deal, and I really am liking this bass. I've spoken to Mr. Smith about it, and it'll be getting shipped home to PA for a sprucing up. It's got an...
