    I just saw that Avatar is selling G/B amps in a package deal with Avatar cabs. Something new from Avatar? $100 off Genz/Benz's MAP on the Shuttle 6.0, Shuttle 9.0, and the Streamliner 900 with purchase of a cabinet.

    I few years ago they did that with Hartke heads and another brand but I don't remember the brand. I also remember them doing that with THD tube heads and their guitar cabs.

    That is awesome! I have owned countless rigs and the Steamliner 900 + Avatar TB-153 combo is as good as it gets imo.

    I also saw that they're getting ready to market an Avatar guitar head. Preamp based on Marshall (a model 1974, and a higher-gain version) with a dual EL84 18 watt power amp. Hmm... an 18 watt Marshall- sounds like the perfect guitar amp...

    Yeah, I saw that one too.

    PTP hand-wired.

    Very GAS inducing!

    I figured plug it into a 1x12 cabinet, aim it at the guitarists ears (like a monitor wedge from the front) and the stage volume would drop to near talking levels!!!! :hyper:

    One of those with a 112 cab in a tilt-back stand would handle pretty much any gig fine. A far better solution than any 100-watt half-stack.

    I don't play guitar on gigs, but would love to have a sweet low-wattage amp like that around the house for those few times that I do use a guitar.
