    I'll tell you guys. Mike sold me a Johnson J Station. Man was that a great piece. For those that want to try a quality modeler without the price, check one out.

    Frank My Friend. You are too good of a guy to allow yourself to get dragged into the mud. Be the Bigger Man. I know that you are. I can't speak for others, but I would not be surprised to see other peeps here echo my sentiment.

    And for the record, this thread is not ruined. Just like mine, let's have fun here (I started to spell it "hear" :laugh2:)

    Lots of us enjoy "giving you the business" because you're a GREAT guy.

    Rock on Brotha. In a sense, everyone's favorite and loved Frank is the same guy--buying and flipping gear!!! :naughty:

    Then there is this incredible piece from the late 90's If you can find one of these for say $400. Buy it. Seriously and without doubt this was 10 years ahead of its time. It has incredible models inside and for tube lovers it has a tube preamp section. For those of you that want to turn a real knob... you can. Midi? Yes..

    I don't tolerate nonsense too well. I don't appreciate snide, backhanded remarks. It's not my nature. I am a passionate hard headed Italian that bends over backwards for guys on this forum. I pay money to support this place. I don't need the agravation.... No one says we can't disagree with one another. It's just a lack of respect in how it's done that causes problems.

    Comments are made from time to time about my flipping of gear. Fact is I am a guitar and Amp tech and fix and sell stuff I find so I can buy stuff I want.. To be attacked as a gear flipper with no real opinions on things is not something I take lightly

    Hey, I'm I-talian too! :thumb: and I know you bend over backwards to help people. That's 1 of many reasons why you're such a good guy.

    In fact, I've actually seriously thought about starting a "Why I like frankv" thread :laugh2:

    Man I'll tell you.....I'm in for this sub-forum idea. I can't tell you how many modeling clips I've seen in this place just get buried after 200 views and one reply while yet another 'guard on or off' thread runs 12 pages lol...no offense to the guard guys, but it'd be nice to have this all in one place to see it. Lolly's clips, Frank's and Mike's, patches and preset sharing, etc....didn't think I'd ever see it on MLP but it'd be cool.

    It will only be a dream until you get it. Then it will truly be a boring amp. You will most likely end up thinking that its no bether then what you have.

    You are a stubborn one Iron..hahahahahah..... But I do believe you will come around .

    Last post for the night. It's a little story if I may...

    So I sold my AXE and I'm waiting for my new AXE to show up. It will be a week. So now that I sold everything I only have my Super Champ here waiting to be shipped. Luckily it is here cause all I have beyond that is a Pandora headphone device and I hate headphones past like 10 minutes.

    So tonight I plugged in and boy does it sound great.. I play it for about 20 minutes and start wondering just how boring being stuck with just this one basic tone is. When you only have one or two basic tones you don't know any better...but when you have access to a Fractal boy does that change things in a big way. Being able to dial up anything you could ever want is so liberating.... I cringe when I see guys asking what amp to buy when the answer is no amp... I think it's one thing to read about it... and completely another to experience it.

    So an amp that has a 12AXY phase inverter and 2 6V6 power tubes and has to be biased when the power tubes are replaced is BS? I actually own one of these amps and I have been inside the chassis and biased it when I replaced the power tubes. Maybe you should take a closer look before you call BS. The pre amp is solid state (with DSP) right up to the phase inverter, then the rest of the amp is tube right up to the output transformer. No sales BS but FACT!
