    Thanks to SWR! I got my grille today for the Henry, and thought I would take a family photo. Not yet arrived is the 1000w power amp to run the Henry. I know what the biggest complaint is going to be, TOO HEAVY, or TOO MUCH TO CARRY! I really don't mind....my job dictates I keep a van, and I lift heavier items on a daily basis. I personally think it is worth the 300#+ it all weighs, sounds HUGE! Let me know what you all think!!!!

    Now i'll have to change my Signature...

    What exactly are you trying to say? lol I'm no Mark Hoppus (kidding), but I wouldn't dare have something like this if I wasn't comfortable with the competency of my playing. The cab on the left is a Goliath Sr., with his "not quite twin" brother Henry to the right. I used the Henry cabinet mic'ed up to record our current cd, along with a sm-400s (I didn't own the 750 at the time) head, loaned to me by a good friend, and also a fellow TB'er, and my bone stock Stingray 5. If anyone cares to hear an .mp3 of us, drop me an email at Racer48m@aol.com. My drummer owns a pro studio (pro tools RULES), where the cd was recorded, and where the family pic was taken.....also our practice space :) Thanks all for the comments, I am pretty happy with it myself.

    wow. since my senior is capable of rendering everyone in a 100ft radius deaf, i'd be scared of runnign it WITH a henry.


    i'm sure it sounds BADASS. :eek:
     
  12. Congrats ANBassist!

    I can probably compete with you pretty well...

    I have a SM-900 with a Goliath III and a BigBen. However, the fan just stopped working in my SM, so I'm going to have to have that looked at.

    I do have GAS to try the new 412 cabs though!

  13. Isn't this bordering on "Arena Rock" amplification?:)

    I'm sure it's loud. Would love to hear an mp3, since I also have a Stingray 5 and SWR cabs. send it my way! gjselva@hotmail.com

  16. was hangin at this music store where a friend works, no one was there, so we hooked up this new 250 head to a 4x12 and a 2x12 cabs.

    gain set at 1, master set at 4, and it 'bout liked to rip our heads off, didn't have the guts to turn it up more because our ears were actually distorting. (OK we're both old, lol)

    Sounded killer, but the question is, do you really need to be that FREAKIN LOUD? In a club?

    just my opinion.

    Thanks for all the compliments guys, it makes ya feel good to know that other can appreaicte fine jewelry, or......eh, nevermind. Ad Nauseam, sounds like you got quite a kickin rig yourself! I havent got to run all at once yet (too few of ohms, waiting on power amp), but honestly I have a hard time keeping up with the senior, and 750. We are a heavy rock band, and do a lot of tunings, highest being drop d, lowest being dropped A. I swear we have the loudest drummer ever, and both guitar players have Marshall TSL100 heads, I swear the loudest guitar head made. I have to be within 4-5 feet from the cab to be heard, without pushing the amp so hard it clips badly. What probably makes matters worse, we practice in a 12'x12' room. I think it's just so small we are all overkilling each other. I'm not going to take both cabs unless we get into some bigger venues, which we are all hoping for soon. Thanks again all for the compliments!
