    You suck! That's awesome! Whats your opinion on the B5R? I really like that head... YEAH! How the hell did you pull that off?
  6. I may have to make a citizens arrest and confiscate the equipment as evidence! :eek:
  7. Right place, right time. Dude was actually advertising the head with an Ampeg 4x10 for $500, but I was short of the cash and had expressed an interest in the head for $250. He never bothered to tell me it was in a rack case with all the goodies until I showed up with the money. An even luckier bastard than I was the fellow who got a flawless Rick 4003 in fireglo with hsc for $500. Dude also had a buyer interested in the cab only. I at least counselled him into asking $300 before I left. It can really pay to read the musician's classifieds in your local alternative weekly newspaper.
  8. I detest large racks, but my guitarrist feels differently. I sold him the rack gear and dropped the B5R into a used Genz Benz CC210T cabinet that I bought used along with the footswitch for the B5R for $250. I now have a 200W at 8 ohm club combo perfect for medium sized rooms with decent PA systems. Did I mention the cab came with casters? So in essence, I have spent roughly $300 bucks for a very nice gig rig that compliments my Genz 250w 2x12 half stack very nicely. My Boss CEB-3 now swirls around the whole room.
