Well, my tax refund arrived today, and I thought I'd put a small portion to work. Tomorrow I pick up my new EA gear - iAmp 800 and NL210. There may be a CXL12 in the near future as well! I've been blown away with the clean sound of EA gear since I first played it at Club Bass 2 years ago, and finally realized it is perfect for an old fart like me! I'm selling my SWR Bass 350 and Goliath III (see signature), dropping many pounds and adding many clean watts! Also selling my Alembic SF-2 - with the EA I get enough tone options built-in, with fewer knobs to twiddle. I've enjoyed the SF-2, but now it is time to simplify things! Thanks to Dave at Club Bass for being so cool with the deal! There, I just had to let someone who might appreciate this know about it!
