Re: Mint Ceriatone OTS 50 w Merc. Magnetics
I've got a lot of questions on why I'm selling. It's because I got a Collings D1ASB varnish (acoustic) and have been playing much more acoustic--I have an agreement (ahem) with my wife to be reasonable on gear. The rig I'm selling is my ultimate Dumble set up--kind of a fun project, for which I did a ton of research. Got the amp from Nick at Ceriatone and then had a local amp tech upgrade the OT, PT and choke with Mercury Magnetics iron (the tech said the ptp wiring in the amp was beautiful). He also added external bias points to make it easier when you want to change tubes (which I upgraded already). Then I found the best "Dumbleator" the Fuchs--(because its tube driven--with reverb), and then researched the perfect 2x12--had to be Made in England Celestion G12-65's. I literally couldn't think of anything else to add to the setup. The 2x12 just came a few days ago (I have the receipt). Trevor at Avatar even broke in the new speakers in for me (played them overnight). I don't really use the Dr. Z Air Brake, so I throw it in. It works great though.
Hate to sell this rig, but I have way to much gear already and it was fun to do the research and put it all together. And I need a new mandolin. Hope that helps. It really is a great deal for someone.
