    I found my old Dean Markley combo which was my first amp, got it in '93 and hated it and sold it. My friend had it all this time for home recording and he gave me the amp back and I plugged it tonight and I absolutely love the sound, it has the 1k midrange tone I love. I know it's not the best amp in the world for a lot of people but I love it. I'm not going to sell my Ampeg but I might use it a lot:)
  2. Congrats! Most of us aren't as lucky. We sell the gear we have, regret it later, and never see it again.

    Funny how tastes change... or possibly the amp after all those years?!?

    I'd do anything to find my old peavey crap box. I miss that thing for no good reason. :)

    I still have the first bass amp I bought. It is an Acoustic 150b, and I bought it in '75. Sounds kinda muddy, but it brings back memories when I look at it. All the rest of my gear from then is long gone. :(

    I wonder if I could buy back the Marshall Major I sold for $300 in 1981 for the same price?

    I did see some SRO 15s on eBay that could have been mine (also sold in '81), but the owner couldn't confirm where his dad got them from.
