    I had an A05, but its on its way to TB'er Big Joe as we speak... What exactly are you looking for?
  4. I'm looking for closer man...

    I had one "A01" sent it back and I'm curious to see if it's time to try another...

    I just got an A05. I'm going to try to see if I can return it for a refund. It hisses badly at all settings. I would not feel good about gigging with it without backup with all the issues I have read in these threads. What good is a micro head if you need to bring 2? I'll stick with my 700rb-II for now and try again in a year or so...

    I've had my A05 for over a month and no problems what soever. Two gigs about 7 or eight practices plus practicing at home.
  7. A05 here, (2) 4-hour gigs, no issues so far. Had an 00 & 03, so my fingers are crossed and the 1001rb is always close by.

  9. thanks y-all

    so far the A05 looks positive...
  10. I just bought one with an A06 serial! Sounds great!!

    You know what would be interesting to see and be able to refer to?
    A list summary of what was changed with each revision.
    I'm sure that info is buried in many pages of lengthly threads. But a brief tally.
    I'm sure there's enough current and former owners that it could be done off the top off peoples memory.

    That would be nice. BTW, is A07 the "final" version?

    my A05 works like a charm. NO problems at all through once to twice a week practice and about 1 to 2 gigs per month.

    Ive had mine for well over 6 months with no problems. My older model had problems, I got a free replacement, and have been happy ever since.

    I want a Fusion though.. just because I like tube tone. :D

    My new A05 has been working flawlessly for several months/gigs/practices. I love this little amp and am glad I gave it another shot.
