    Just got this on a great deal. Sounds fantastic. Plexi like. These are reported to be very underrated sleeper amps. Pick one up on the cheap if possible.shity pic but this is mint condition. Already put a vintage Mullard 12ax7 amperex 7025 and a Marconi 7025 in it. Real nice. If anyone has a pair of vintage el34 they want to trade I have some nice Vintage glass to trade.

    Thanks man. Yah Look into them. Some rag in them cause they were made by St. Louis amp crate. But this is solid

    Frigging right boys. So as the never ending quest for tone superiority continues I have been on the speaker circuit for a bit. Tried a few fender special designs, a few vintage jensens 1963, a few blue marvels and a celestion g12 100 . I put the c90 from the Mesa rocket 44 into the peave and the Ceramic 12 100 watt in the mesa just to see how that sounded.. and they i was a resounding success. But, i still has a 2X12 cab that I was unhappy with for my ampeg r50h. A few celestion G12 65 heritage came up at a great price almost new and I took the leap. Am I ever glad I did. Here is the rig and here is a shot of the cab with my new speakers that I will be using for a long long time. They sound incredible.

    These amps are real sleepers, grab one while they are at a reasonable price. I paid 350 for mine CAD ut saw a guy recetly sell his for 540 USD, so people are catching on it seems.
