    Reminds me of a story I read some years ago. There’s this guy talking to his friend and the friend is complaining that his tube radio isn’t working right. The guy tells his friend that his nephew is really good at working with these things, and the friend tells the guy to bring his nephew over to take a look. So the guy shows up with his ten year old nephew, and the friend is a bit surprised but says “ok, let the kid see what he can do.” So they leave the room and the kid turns on the radio. It is silent for a bit, then starts squealing and making odd noises for a while, and then works fine. So the kid turns it off, lets it cool, and then switches the two tubes. Problem solved. The kid figured out that the second tube was putting out the crap that the first tube was generating as it warmed up more slowly. Once the tubes were swapped by the time the second tube warmed up the first tube was stable. The 10 year old was Richard Feynman. He went on to win the Nobel prize in physics for the path integral formulation of quantum mechanics. Smart kid.

    I'm probably too old for a Nobel, but I like the thinking. :)

    “On behalf of the selection committee I hereby nominate you Jule Potter for consideration for the Nobel Prize in Tone Expression.”

    “Included with text and drawings of his advancements the committee was afforded a working model of the design. It’s affectionately known as Monique. The clarity combined with down home phat makes an amalgam of science and art rarely seen in tech today. We are considering this award with all haste. Any delays are due to the sample, the Monique. It continues to go missing at different homes of the selection board members.”

    Sincerely,
    Swiss Watchman

    I finally found a cabinet that doesn't break up when I push it with the Jule.

    This replaced a pair of HDN-112s. The 12 on this is really deep, and the 10's add nice clarity. My HDN-112s are currently for sale in the classifieds ;)

    2U pull out pedal shelf! I drilled holes in the front and back and mounted passthrough 1/4" instrument cable jacks with power in the back.

    Peterson strobe tuner, Cali76 CB, Sansamp YYZ, DSM Noisemaker OmniCabSim Mini, and SFX Microthumpinator ... all into the front of Monique.

    65B31A17-ECA3-4753-9856-17092C1B96B7. I took my Mesa 400 to a gig this weekend along with an old ampeg 6x10 fridge. I had not used that stack in awhile and wanted some variety from my Monique tardis and Mesa subway cabs.
    Plugged in the Mesa, flipped the on switch, and... nothing. Fuse was ok but amp was dead.
    Thankfully I brought my Monique as a backup and played it through the ampeg 6x10 (g-60, which was really a guitar cab but who’s counting) for the gig.
    That rig sounded awesome! So much low end, reminded me of an SVT, with some warm up on top.
    I don’t usually see Monique’s sitting on top of SVT cabs in this thread, so here u go. The bass is a 1980’s MIJ NBD I just posted about in another thread.

    This weekend, I recorded a little jam I transcribed from a Janek Gwizdala Instagram post. Used my Monique and a Cali pedal compressor. Thought you Monique fans would like hearing the Monique direct tone.

    Every show...for many years. Monique + M-series power is the rock.

    If you look closely behind whitelines, you'll see that his other amp is a B-15N.

    Yes sir, a 63 if I remember right. It’s easier to record with the Monique however. I have to rather crank the b-15n to get into its tonal sweet spot.

    I hate to do it, but I am selling my 700 Tardis if anyone is interested. It is not because I want to play any other amp. I love it. But I am not gigging right now and probably won’t for at least another year. So I’m hoping to re-home it to someone who will play it now. I will most assuredly buy another as soon as I can get this project to completion. Rob
