    ...and business is good! The great danger actually is that someone throws my Buzzard over. It´s quite safe in it´s stand, but if someone stumbles over a cable and looses balance there could be much more damage done.

    20kg IS light for the number of tubes you’re cooking there. Still I rarely take mine out to gigs, but I am quite lazy.

    Is the Demeter replacing the Quilter?

    I’ve been playing my CL 300 through a single barefaced One10 at home, sounds great! I have to put the One10 on top of the amp though as it’s smaller but this kinda works to bring it higher off the ground. I’ve been thinking about getting a second One10 and ditching my big cab, a Baer ML115. That would make an interesting upside down stack!

    It's not a bass amp, but I hardly think it merits its own NAD thread, so here it is. I picked it up yesterday. As some of you know, I mainly play bass, but I've been getting more into the guitar in the last six months or so. I was less than inspired playing my guitar through a bass amp, so I budgeted a modest $200 (roughly 175 euros) and went shopping for an entry-level practice amp.

    This thing is actually pretty cool. It's got models of a whole bunch of different amps, plus built-in effects, and some stuff I don't understand yet about selecting between class A or class AB, or being able to set the "bias" switch to "hot" or "cold". It's pretty much option fatigue waiting to happen. I plan on finding one preset I like for clean compressed tone, and one I like for overdriven blues leads, and leaving it alone other than that for now.

    One minus I've found so far is the power input jack feels somewhat flimsy. But I think it will be fine for an amp that will rarely leave its spot on a stand in my living room.
