Probably one of the best days of my life. Wanted to share it with my friends on TB before I go to bed. Started playing around '69 with my cheap Raven J imitation and 20 W Silvertone amp blatting away with my buds in garages, all the time dreaming of playing one of the SVTs with the 2 fridge cabs that the rich kids had. All these years have gone by and I was finally in a position to buy my dream SVT along with the 410Cl around 11 months ago. Been playing it at church master 12 o'clock gain around 10, relatively low volume, but great sound with all my basses. Last week I got a call from my best friend from the early days who was with me in a lot of those garages. He wanted to jam along with another guitarist and his nephew who's a great drummer. 1st time I got to let the SVT along with my Roscoe Beck V loose, master full, gain 1:00, and my SVT dreams were realized today. My dream tone for 3 hours with those overdriven tubes with some great players all of whom commented on how good a tone my rig has. Had to bring my SVT home today instead of dropping it off at church, it's sitting in my living room. I've been looking at it all evening thinking of how happy I am with how I sounded, how my gear sounded, how they sounded, and how we sounded. Everyone felt the same because we're getting together again 2 weeks from today. Think I'll bring my new P5 along that day. Life feels so good today, I hope everyone who reads this feels as blessed as I do tonight.
