    It's so sad. This poor, forgotten pair has been relegated to being the official 'bedroom practice amp'. You can almost feel their pain.

    I plug into my stereo system, sounds 100 times better than my bass amp. I just wish it was loud and under 200lbs.

    The only thing I use for home practice is a Tascam GB-10 Guitar and Bass Trainer. My wife has to be at work at 5 A.M. so she goes to bed around 8 P.M. The GB-10 lets me play through headphones without disturbing her.

    Stage rig is on the right.

    That head, 'cause it couldn't handle cold-trailer-to-warm-room gigs (rack has been disassembled) and cabs pictured (depending on what I feel like using at the moment) because they’re too big for the small rooms typically played.

    If it is a V2 or V3 all you have to do is change out the tubes and put in a much bigger transformer (you can see it in the photo). The Hammond 125ESE works great.
