    Thank you sir.

    Strings - Fender 7250, M, NOS blue packaging. I have maybe 10 packs right now and I leave them on until they don't feel or sound right anymore.
    This pair has been on for 2 1/2 years I believe and they're still round and bright, yet mellow and defined.

    :cool:

    I had a B15R for years wonderful amp.

    I'm digging the SVT and that 1x15 cab too.

    B-15R was my first tube amp to hear live....totally blew me away. I know it's not as good as the original, but I STILL want one someday =(

    I wouldn't say it's "not as good" as the original, just different. I actually prefer the re-issue of this, as well as the V4BH, (same amp). Has that obvious "Ampeg tone", while offering a bit of modern improvements. Awesome amps, and I am also a fool for selling mine, (V4BH).

    I think it's just as good as an original.
    Different beast for sure.
    I play mine everyday and love it.
    I play it more often than my '78 SVT and '61 fliptop...
