  3. Thanks, Jon -

    That rig replaced a rack setup with a 2x10" and 1x15" cab - the new rig is about as loud and half the weight.

    800 watts, 100 pounds.

    :D

    :D

    congrats Jefe!
     
  5. Thanks, ya young punk :D

    Man, you oughtta hear this thing, 78p - I'm never gonna let anyone tell me again that tube amps sound better than solid state amps.

    I haven't got it 100% dialed in yet but it's about the warmest rig I've ever played. I'm not gonna have any trouble getting exactly the tone I'm looking for.
     
  6. Nice...

    I want a 112 Avatar Cab...I heard they're wicked..

    hey the bottom half looks just like my rig - welcome to the Aggie GS112 x 2 club. (you think that's dorky, wait until you see the t-shirt).

    what tube amp did it replace?

    Thanks - it replaced this (which is only sort of a tube amp):

    I had an Eden 210XLT and 115XL under that rack.

    Nice amps. I've played a that EA Head @ work & I didn't like it too much but you're the one that has it & I'm sure you love it. :)

    Congrats!!!!!!
     
  12. Thanks, Nino -

    Everybody's taste is different - I'm pretty happy with the amp.

    Hey - if everyone liked the same stuff I did life would be a whole lot easier.

    But is sure would be boring :)

    Allan,

    Congrats on picking up that iAMP 800. I bought one a few weeks ago and have been very happy with it. I use it to push one CxL 12L for softer gigs and two Eden 2-10 XLTs for louder gigs.

    I can relate to your comments about SS vs tube amps. The funny thing is that I have had two people who have very "musical ears" walk up to me on a gig and say "that new head sounds great! great low end! does it have a tube preamp?" Isn't that hilarious? I've already told gary at EA, I'm sure they're pleased.

    By the way, I have heard those twin Aggies being pushed by a variety of different heads, and they always sound great! I know they must sound awesome with the iAMP!!!

    Yeah, you know one interesting thing i've found with the twin GS112's is that you can get pretty different tones out of them by simply stacking them on end or normal - i know that's nothing new, but it seems to make more difference than with other cabs i've tried.

    with my 680/728 rig, its almost too beefy, so I stack 'em on end... but with the EA being so amazingly clean, I can see how stacking normal would be optimal.

    anyway... try it and see, it's pretty cool.
     
  16. I'll try it, vanselus - thanks for the tip :)

    It has been brought to my attention that the amp t Sadowsky's shop is an iAMP350. The one that you have is an iAMP800. Different amps. Sorry. :(
     
  19. No problems here, Nino - I don't know if there are any tone differences between the two. I've never played an iAmp 350 ;)

    Thanks, jerry :)

    I know the feeling. That's why I got rid of the old rack system. The older I get the heavier things get and the more pain hurts - so far I'm pretty happy with the new rig :)
