    I'm in, too.

    For three years now a Promethean 5110 is the amp I use most. I have three bands and help out a lot in some side-projects. Lots of studio / recording, too.

    I had a SWR Redhead that I used most, but this one went up in smoke after about 18 years of heavy gigging. The Redhead was a fine amp, but it was heavy, so now I was looking for a lightweight combo with some balls. The owner of my "mom-and-pop-music shop" showed me the Promethean 5110 and told me not to buy a Tecamp Puma 500 combo. In my aerea he is a well known bassman, too, and he knows about the needs of a working musician.

    So he recommendet to get me a Promethean 5110 as he made real good experiences with his own. He ordered one, and what can I say, I fell in love with the amp. I love this little combo, because it gives me a loud, light and versatile sound that is useable in any setting.

    I have three main bands, and I have different fullstacks in every one of them. But the Promethean is the amp for small, bar-sized gigs, for rehearshalls, for sessions and so on. I use it as my practise-amp in my living room a lot.

    I love the range of sounds I can get with this nice little combo. From vintage to modern, December last year I used it in a cover band for some real heavy metal, using a Visual Sound "Jeckyll and Hyde"-pedal in front of it. In the overdrive-setting with the bass boost engaged, the "Yeckyll and Hyde" made that thing roar like an overdriven Ampeg-fullstack.

    Oh, btw, did I tell you that I love the Promethean 5110?

    Ciao

    Oh, I forgot, pictures will follow as soon as possible. :)

    I've got a P3115 as my playing out amp. It started as my "all-things" amp until I got my Berg HS410. But, the Berg is too big to take with me when we play out, so the Promethean gets weekly gig duties.

    When I purchased my Promethean, it was a choice between the P3115 and a really nice little Ampeg combo. Both beat out the similarly sized Fender Rumble in tone. The P3115 and Ampeg were quite close sound-wise, but the Promethean won out on weight. Don't regret the purchase in the slightest...a really great little combo, that I wish more folks knew was out there.

    My P5110 is awesome. Had it for 3 years or so now. Haven't ever bothered to take pictures of it, though. It's great by itself for smaller gigs. And when I played a gig with flaky power, where my SVT 2 Pro kept going into Standby, I just switched over to my Promethean head running into my Aguilar cab stack, with a Sansamp BDDI in front of the Promethean for some SVT emulation and it brought the THUNDER!
