    Not like a Marshall IMO. It’s got a beefy low end. If you’ve heard the first sleep album then you’ve heard this amp. The AOR series was as popular in hard rock in the 80’s as the RB800 was.

    I see a Fender Bassman 300 on sale locally. Anyone played one?

    Sleep last night in Denver was glorious and cathartic. If you get a chance to see them on the final leg of this tour, do it.

    Nice. I've only listened to the couple of pre-released tracks, but I dug them. Pretty representative of the full album?

    I also just snagged a ticket for Elder in Seattle. Not really sure how I'm going to make that happen from Colorado, but I'm going to make that happen from Colorado.

    Man, it was so sick! Al broke out the new Ric 5 string towards the end. It sounded great!

    If you go backstage are you behind the wall of sleep?

    All I have to add is that I was amazed seeing people in the room without plugs in.

    Anyone know if Al or Matt wear them on stage? I don't know how anyone's ears could handle that for decades without serious damage and guaranteed tinnitus...

    I assume they do.

    Well, along with not going to see cool bands play, our badass drummer quit the band tonight. F-ing sucks having to find someone to fill his shoes. Another major potential, super tight band goes onto life support.....

  17. Going to see them next month in Brooklyn! I'm psyched to hear Al's 4003S/5 through his rig.

    @cornfarmer I feel your pain. My buddy lasts for about a year before he turns out and takes a break. Luckily his break is about up and we'll be back.

    The tube one? I've messed with the 100w one and it was awesome to say the least

    @Korladis I'm kicking myself as well, hopefully they come back through in the next couple years.

  19. Didn't know he ever played 5 string. He didn't when I saw them at the end of March.

    I didn't want to 'like' this comment. But I feel your pain. Been there, done that. I'm trying to put together a band atm and not having a helluva lotta luck. It always sucks to have to move backwards. Best of luck to ya finding a good non-flake drummer!
