I didn't want to hijack the other thread discussing connectivity problems with this rig, but a local guy has this exact rig for sale. It has 20 hours of use at a church and is pristine. That's a killer deal and a manly rig. I play in a classic rock band. I know it's heavy. I have a 410 and a 115 SVT and do just fine with that set up. We are playing small venues. But this seems like too good of a chance to pass up. I have had non specific free roaming G.A.S. for several months now and this would be a major OD. I would think this would cure me once and for all. I would never need any kind of gear of any sort whatsoever for the rest of my life. I have read this forum for years and the issue of tube longevity has never been answered to me. How often would I really be looking at tube replacement assuming 30 to 40 hours of usage per month? Will somone either talk me out of this or into it? I can't enjoy life until I resolve this inner conflict. The deamons speaking to me from the deep recesses of my tormented soul. I would sell my current rig on Ebay and maybe recover $500 to $600. The rest pays for itself with my share of gig earnings after a month. My band recently asked me to "manage" so I am responsible for gigs, marketing, etc. With this rig, I would also have complete and absolute power when we play. They would be at my mercy. On the other hand, I do fine with my Genz Benz head and my Sansamp DI. I don't need this rig, but it would be way cool. Aaargh.
