    Just got a new MF Catalog. Looks like this....

    The Pico Valve is a Jet City (Designed by Soldano but imported) head. It's a lower powered version of the UniValve that Soldano designed with Andy Marshall (THD). These heads take any octal power tube so you can experiment and have a lot of fun with them, They usually cost $299. I got mine used at Music Go Round and paid $199 (and I love it).

    MF has them in the new catalog for $99. Item 430426.

    Pregain, Master, 2 watt or 5 watt switch, bright button and bass, middle, treble. Outputs to 4, 8 or 16 ohms. Very touch sensitive. Great little head.

    The toaster chassis is built like a tank. Very cool head for $99.

    FYI,

    John

    Here's the deal... I'm on the phone with customer service. I was told the prices in the September catalog begin in September... but they are giving me the $99 price, since I phoned in and asked about it.

    Thanks for posting this! At $99 there is no reason not to pick one up! I am going to give my rep a call tomorrow and see if they can throw in some free shipping ;)

    Free shipping already... over $25 order.

    Surf the site, and have your order ideas ready to go at the same time. I also got a hard Gator case, normally $79, I hesitated at the price, she got it dropped to $45.

    It's like the JCA20H head with tube reverb added in a 1x12 combo. I have the JCA20H head and two of the JC1x12 Eminence cabs. Lots of gain. Sounds like a Marshall. You can buy a JC 1x12 cab and set it under that Combo and make a compact Mini Stack. They're the same size. The combo amp will power a second cab.

    Both deals are good deals.

    I am a believer......

    Yeah, the combo deal is pretty good, too. I got mine a couple years ago when they were that very same price...$299. Nice amp and adding the matching extension cab is the way to go. That's what I did and I gig with mine and love it!
