    Hi there,

    just wanted to share my NAD :

    Hartke LH500 with my dirty old Ampeg SVT-15E cab.
    I was GASsing on it for a few weeks and spent some nights, searching for infos on TB.

    Tried it this morning with my BDDI and an ampeg 610 too.

    No regrets ! Sounds warm, clean and powerful. I still have to find correct settings with the BDDI, but the first impression is really cool ! :)

    Congratulations! And thanks for the rig pic. Seeing it is always better than hearing about it.

    Congrats and enjoy! Looks like you're on the right track for a good starting point as far as EQ goes.

    Yes. I think so. I don't like the HA3500 that stands at our reahersal too. I Hardly find a correct sound without tweaking all settings.

    Congrats. I love mine. It's a great sounding head. I have a Hartke ak115 cab that is due to arrive today to go with my amp. Enjoy yours!

    I did everything by myself :
    - the head case
    - the painting of the face plate with new chicken head knobs.
    - the tolex covering
    I changed the grill cloth for a marshall style.

    This is amazing. You should be doing this as a career if you aren't already. I am so impressed by this.

    Thanks Dude,
    (unfortunately ?) It's only a hobby. I've made this mod to match with my self made bass (my avatar and here)
