    Yup, that may be a good alternative. The price on this one is slowly creeping up, but still well below $120.

    Thank you, sir!

    I was checking it out last night. My little brother actually lives close to that store in L.A. Maybe I can persuade him into getting it for me and shipping it for free. :p

    I always feel more comfortable haggling in person than over the phone.

    Have you had luck haggling with GC on used gear?

    Last time I tried here, they told me it's company policy to not discount used gear. That was a while back, so I haven't tried since.

    I like it a lot, it's a really good amp. I got exactly what I wanted out of it. I wanted something that sounded like my 800RB, but louder and lighter. It's actually a little deeper in the lows as well. It fits in the pocket of my gig bag and it's the loudest amp I own. It's a little more finicky with my pedals than my other amps, but really that just helps me weed stuff out, because what sounds good through it pretty much sounds good through everything else. The preamp gain is excellent, much better than I anticipated when I bought it.

    Pretty much every Cold Mourning practice I start out on my SVT-CL, fiddle with the settings a bunch, get frustrated and end up switching to the MB800. As I've stated before, it doesn't have as much girth as the CL, but it's louder, a lot more flexible and cuts through the mix easier. I can get a great tone out of it without much effort. That's just an A/B comparison, the MB800 has a ton of punch to it. The CL is a bit too boomy for my taste, I can't ever seem to get the mud out of it.

    I still view it as a backup, more than a main amp. Really only because my Traynor serves the "straight into a tube amp, no pedals" role and I'm working on the pedalboard into power amp rig for light and modular. If I was doing session work or gun for hire gigs though, I would make it my main. It's light, loud and flexible, so it could be a good "swiss army knife" type amp.

    I tried down tuning the epi EB-0 with the unknown gauge rounds and it works, but needs to be adjusted a bit, for a slightly tighter C, and the um Eb is buzzing on the first fret a bit when I dig in.

    So Niff and whoever else was looking for a short scale, This thing is working. I was thinking of maybe putting in a switch with a diode for the supposed jack bruce sound. then install a double jack, one with a cap across it like a rick. Only question is would splitting my signal passively cut it in half?
