    Not much doom going on there but definite C.A.S action.

    Thanks :) It was an enormous amount of work to built it. Same goes for the rest of the instruments, by the way. I've posted a video of the rig in action in the same post, but here it is again:

    Tasty black and white shot!

    Fender Jazz->Compressore(Not all the time)->LMII->102p

    It's really boomy for a 210 and the rear port is deliciously done. It definitely is manageable in one trip! Thinking about making it a two-tripper though and adding a 112 cab of some sort!

    Best regards,

    Brooks

    Love this rig. Used to have a 102p. Still have an LMII! A one trip wonder for sure.

    I'd probably buy another one if the right deal came along.

    Absolutely gorgeous. Maximum jealousy.

    Cheers Lethgar!

    It's an Ashdown 550 Spyder; dual valve preamp, passive EQ, solid state poweramp.

    Actually the standard 550 is in production, they just discontinued the rack mounted variant :)
