It just arrived today from fellow Canadian TB'er sargebaker (I can't believe you shipped it Tuesday and it arrived today!). I'm really looking forward to giving it a try out tonight at band practice, and if I like it, will have to flip my GK 700RB-II. If not, I'll have to flip the LMII. Two things I am a little leary about: one is that I've read that the balanced XLR output's level is controlled by the input gain knob, and the second is that there is no mute switch. I've used these features on my G-K countless times, so I might really miss them. Is there any way to add something else in the amp->PA signal chain to allow me to have separate level control over the PA input signal? Of course, if the tone is to die for, nothing else matters. Wish me luck! I'll post results back here at my earliest opportunity.
