    I haven't been to Music Gallery for a long, long time, but the thing that impressed me most about them was that every instrument played beautifully.

    ^Agreed. They seem to take impeccable care of their instruments. Great customer service too.

    I would love to buy a Walkabout there when I get the cash, but I'm graduating college in June and moving to the West Coast shortly after.

    After several months of surgery and rehab and playing with friends, I've got a genuine gig next Saturday. If I can get some help, I'll put the M/B head back in the 1x15 Scout box. This is gonna be soooooo good!:bassist:

    No problem! Happy to help. I hesitated to recommend it at first because it's pretty out of the way if you're in the city--as I am, so I've only made it there 2-3 times. But I agree, it's a very fine store. Definitely the best variety of Mesa bass gear in the area, too.

    ^I'm in Evanston, so it's not too bad.

    Question for you all: What's the deal with the black faced WAs vs. the silver faced ones? Are the black faced heads part of a special edition run or are they phasing out the silver amps in favor of the black ones? I greatly prefer the black faced ones, but it seems as if many stores are selling the silver ones as new.

    Yeah-some stores could conceivably have new old stock silver ones with black lettering and toggle switch for active/passive, but production for the last couple of yrs is black.

    I figured I'd slap up some pics of the WA in action from this weekend's gig. This was a fairly large outdoor venue behind a bar and grill (see pic). The WA is driving an Audiokinesis Thunderchild 112.

    We had good PA support, so I wasnt worried about not being loud enough. This rig kept up with the drummer pretty good. I think the opposite side of the stage had a good bit of bass in the monitors though. By the end of the night I had the WA gain and master both at 1pm, getting lots of overdrive when I layed into the strings, but just a touch of warmth when I was gentle.
