    There are a couple of places here in southern Ontario that have them in stock. If you want one maybe they could ship it to you? Check the website for Central Music in the Niagara area. I've never been there but they have a very good reputation. Also L&M have the head on their website now so they might have some at their warehouse which could be shipped out.

    sweet!!
    Great sounding amp, the eq really works well on it,
    and the little sucker through a Vintage 30 is pretty freakin loud
    So im using my OCD with it, and its perfect for it, on both
    fender and marshall settings.
    The cool thing is it weighs about as much as a guitar, so its
    easy to move around

    finally got mine last night.

    tried it through a 10" speaker at the store. although it was loud, it wasn't absurd. played it through my 12" at home and wow....much louder...might I even say too loud?

    this might have to be my basement rig until i have some cahs laying around for an attenuator....as its far too loud for my upstairs room.

    i also found that at 1 its fairly quiet, clean, at 3 its loud....the taper is...well... non existent it seems compared to my ac15. from 3-6 it doesnt change much in volume just tone, then at 6-10 it gets a touch louder but more overdriven...

    Did you try the bedroom trick yet (plugging the cab halfway into the headphone jack)? Works very well.

    yup. works decently. i do wish they incorporated it into the head model though like they did the combo.

    How is plugging into the head phone jack any more trouble than flipping a switch? :)

    The combo has another switch.

    Regardless I returned mine. It's far too loud. Even for regular practice.

    Unfortunate be ause it's a great sounding amp
