The Series III Coda Combo amp that I ordered last September arrived at my door today. I haven't weighed it, but just carrying the shipping box inside told me that it is significantly lighter than the Series I Contra that I've used for several years. I have no trouble believing that it weighs under 20lbs. The real shock is how small this thing is. It stands only about 11 1/2 inches from floor to the top. It is almost too small. I have to get down on my knees to see all the control knobs and switches. I'm thinking about printing out a strip of paper with the names of the knobs to place on the top so I can turn the correct knobs (atleast till I memorize where they are). Since I'm still recovering from my shoulder rotator cuff surgery, it will be a while before I can report on how it performs on the job. However, from what I hear in my living room, it is very similar to the sound of my old contra but with more highs and a lot more reserve power. I will have to experiment with the tweeter since that is new to me. I decided to buy the Coda so that I could mix my AMT SB15 mike with the piezo pickup and it looks like it will fill the bill quite nicely. I'm currently using a Fishman full Circle pickup, but with all the options the Coda brings to the table, I'll may be experimenting with others. I'm sure that this is one of the very first to be delivered. The serial number is 5S 0005. I can assure anyone who has had one on order for some time that it is well worth the long, long wait. Rick Jones has out done himself again. Also, thanks to Bob Gollihur for sending out progress reports during the long wait between ordering and delivery.
