    Well, of course, he's right. Young beni hendrix (any relation to jimi?) is obviously chuffed to be an elite member of The Combo Club, and rightfully so. But, alas, he has yet to learn the grace of our ... noblesse oblige [the inferred responsibility of privileged people to act with generosity and nobility toward those less privileged].

    Boasting and braggadocio is repugnant and often produces the opposite of the intended effect when trying to lift up the downtrodden and heavy burdened. Let us, therefore, reach out in humbleness and modesty to our brothers and sisters in bassosity as bearers of The Light(weight) and The Power, be it Class D or otherwise; The Combo!

    Lol - love it - that's why this club rocks! At 58, I'm "young" again :hyper:

    No relation to Jimi unfortunately (that I'm aware of anyway) but if I only had a $1 for every time I've been asked that :laugh:

    beni??????? and the jets???? :roflmao:

    OK, so there's like a gazillion Rumbles there and a couple scans reveal not a single pic of a Blackstar. I know, like me, they are the new kids on the block - but as a fully initiated member of this elite club, I would respectfully request the inclusion of the fine Unity Bass Line from Blackstar Amplification! :cool:

    Thank you - and may god bless!

    Hmmm, not very thorough scans, beni. Cool your jets! [Mumbling Gumble]Young 'uns got no respect for us elders. Harumpf![/Grumbling Mumble] But, I'm sure you won't miss all the BlackstarS next time. ;) But, seriously, bhendrix, thank you for bringing that to my attention. I assure you there was no intentional slight. :thumbsup: I've read nothing but good things about the new Unity. There's even a (the?) very vocal Fender fan who's impressed with the new Unity!

    Anyone else here feel that their combo(s) are under-represented on the Combo Club Wiki page, or anything else that needs to be added there, just lemme know, by post or PM, either way. I want this to be your wiki page! :)

    Go Combos!

    Hmmmmmm - oh how I love a good mystery!
     
  16. It's Blackstar and Vox amps on the showroom floor at the local brick and mortar.

    Come to think of it, the only amps on the showroom floor are combos. So @pcake is correct about The March of Combo Amps at her GC. (This B&M here is a mom & pop that still sells <gasp> pianos.)

    But, probably no VX50BA amps, I bet. "I tell ya they just don't get no respect*! Even from Vox dealers."

  18. The Vox VX50BA is the first amp I looked for in the showroom. No dice. Crimminy. They're delighted to order one, I'm informed. But kind of in - if not amp nirvana now - then close.

    Some dealers just show NO darn respect for their prospective and current customers.
