    Gearmandude digs it. Reminds me of how I can play the Champ exclusively for months and I have to force myself to plug into something else. It isn't life changing like plugging into a good vintage plexi for the first time. But I find myself 1. wondering why I play the little thing so much, 2. thinking I don't really need anything else.

    The vibrato would put it over the top for me. I like the saggy old speaker, but it would probably sound better with a Webber/WGS/Jupiter/vintage Jensen.

    My Champion 600 makes a good backup (slightly more stiff, newer sounding, but actually very similar).

    Okay, better.

    But now I have to migrate my photobucket pics to imgur. Meh.

    Well, the amp will be at my local GC tomorrow, and I'll be taking over my Blackstar Club 40 and a Line 6 Flextone 3 XL to trade in.
