    Yes, the foot switch is Very handy, and almost a necessity (I set one channel up for fingers and one for a pick), but apparently it’s somewhat rare. Not sure why, as I never had a problem keeping up with mine.

  4. That's a really nice clean looking amp! Also, it looks like it has the original driver loaded as well. Just be careful to not let the amp fall over as it will likely mess up that speaker... ask me how I know! LOL
    I still have my footswitch for my Beta Bass combo... somewhere!

  5. Thanks for the advice, good Sir. Here is a closer look at it: Also, it looks pretty good in my Doom Room.

  7. Well, mine has had Gauss driver in it since the late 80's...it fell over in the back of my truck and shifted the voice coil.

  8. I've read on some threads that guys have upgraded to a new 15 and the sound improved. Would you recommend a new speaker?
     
  9. Well it was almost 30 years ago, but I seem to recall that the new driver sounded much better than the what came with the amp. It was cleaner and was able to handle more power the the stock.
    That all said, i probably wouldn't have changed up the driver if I didn't have to. I still use the cab at our rehearsal space, but I use a Hartke 3500 instead of the Beta for amplification as our drummer is a gorilla and 100 watts was pushing the amp too much.
    If I recall correctly, the original driver was a square magnet...
