    Yea because I don't want it damaged, I don't have Slash's road crew moving everything... the avt150H has already fallen off the back of the truck onto the driveway(bass player was packing it into the truck)... still worked... solid state for live shows.

    No pics but I have a Modded VHT Ultralead (1st VHT Mod VooDoo Amps did and I worked hand in hand w Trace to get my tone) and a stock VHT Deliverance 120. I play them through a VooDoo Amps front loaded 4x12. I dropped Celestion Neodymium speakers in there. Love it! Pics soon...

    When I play with a band I use my Marshall MA50C , heard some flack about this amp but I've had no issues, yes the distortion was weak but my MT-2 fixed that very quickly. My practice amp is a Line6 Spider III 30watt solid state or my Fender RAD depending on my mood.

    I'm playin an Egnater Tweaker head with the 1x12 matching cab. True story, I didn't have any idea of the price upon our test run and was shocked at how affordable it was..it isn't really really cheap but it is really affordable. Built solidly and just an overall great tone, Bruce is the man. I got it 'blemished' as well but it was really just a return, not a blemish to be found on it and that saved me 100 bones.
    While we are on the amp topic, do any of you find that you get more and more brazen with the volume on your amp? I kinda have pesky neighbors and at first I played at a whisper volume, which this amp gets a surprisingly good tone with, but I notice that 'master' getting higher and higher up. I envy those of you in a house, I would play ten times as often if I could be so loud I could feel it hit my chest :dude:..this is also an issue when I have band practice cuz the knobs need some adjustment as the volume comes up
