  3. Hey acexxxoasis, where did you get the head from? I put one on consignment at BassNorthWest awhile back, & it just sold. Nice little head, compared very well w/my Mesa D-180. Sweeeet overdriven tone.

  10. I got $299(minus 25% consignment fee); I paid $250 for it so I broke even more or less. I kinda miss it, though. It would be neat to put the high end into the Peavey & a 2x10+a bit of O.D. & clean , fat lows through the D-180 & a nice 1x15.
