    ...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.

    Jamming this one today. Still cant beat that full tube sound. Still waiting on my new demeter 800d. Hope it can get close to this sound, in a light package.

    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.

    just got myself a worthy cab for my Trace elliot V8..Total utter overkill...sheer joy and fun.

    This mesa has had solid life but still sounds phenominal.

    I sold an 6x10 Mesa years ago and regretted it ever since so until my back is shattered i am committed!

    Oh nice! I had one for a while until I moved to an apartment with 12 steps to get inside, and it weighed the same as I did at the time, so sadly it’s gone now. But what a sound! Filled a room beautifully. I had a 400+ on mine.

    Looks the biz!

    How do you feel about the FRFR character of that Barefaced cab compared to other cabs?

    Using the Big Twin II and an old SWR Henry the 8x8 myself I am sometimes torn between the two.
    The Barefaced being better audible in the mix and on stage, but that 8x8 just sounds so huuuuge and fat and full and thick I love that too.
