    I am leaving for Indiana for 2 days. Any messages will be returned after that. Sorry for the inconvenience.

    So I assume that this would be an ideal match for my Goliath II - certainly better the the Peavey Tour 450 that I have now... I need to compete with my guitarist's 180 Watt Fender Super Twin Reverb. The Peavey tried, but it's not quite up to where I need it.

    We play sort of rock/electronicish dance music (think The Disco Biscuits, if you're familiar), and I use a Rickenbacker with a lot of effects. I don't really know much about how these amps sound, but I'm interested. Can you fill me in a little bit as to whether you think this would be a good choice for me? It'd only be my second head unit, so I'm a little new to this, and I'd appreciate your help.

    I assume all is in good working order, etc.

    Thanks!

    Hey, I played one of these heads through a Goliath III cab, and it was smokin'! Real nice, real big sound- I loved it. Hi-Fi but you can get the old-school thing too. I tried to buy the rig from the guy... well not that hard because I knew he really dug it. Also I was poor!

    I'd say go for it. I'm only a bystander, but there's an experience for you. It will kill a room- slam! All dead. :)

    Good luck. The EQ is something to get hold of, by the way, but worth a little time spent.

    PM's returned! By the way, I am using this hooked to a Golliath II and a Big Ben...
    Tons of power
