    Well, the wheels help, but no way am I taking any of them up the stairs!

    I put on the Ernie Ball casters this morning. I went to change the speakers, and the first problem was you had to remove the head to change the speakers. The second more significant issue is my Celestion Blackback G12Hs are 16 ohms, and the stock speakers are 8 ohms. I am fine with the sound of the stock speakers; if I didn't like the sound of the amp, I would not have bought it.

    Here is a new family picture of my basement jam room. I know Dave's back hurts just looking at the picture, but even he would have to admit he would love to spend a couple of hours down there jamming.

    I've got a BRILLIANT idea, I can bring BOTH my Ric 620's, and we could jam to Tom Petty's versions of Beatles songs? Now there's a project for AI....
    Before even attempting to piss her off like that, I have one question. How comfortable is your sofa?

    How can you not like Tom Petty? Seriously, every day since he's been gone, I'm like, "Man, I wish I would have appreciated what I had more when Tom Petty was around."
    She appreciates the music and the songwriting but finds his vocals annoying. Me? I love Tom's vocals.

    I think classic rock radio playing him every 4th song ruined it for a lot of people.

    There’s nothing quite like the Vox AC sound. Nice score.

    omg one of the holy grail speakers of all time.

    pretty much any 12" celestion with the H mag is my cup of tea. the celestion/Marshall vintage is my favorite. I want to load a 4x12 with the H creambacks...mid jingle jangle all day.

    Never thought I'd get a Vox either but I really enjoy my Night Train 50. Some folks say it sounds "completely different" than an AC30 but in my humble opinion that's utter BS. It's got the trademark Vox/AC30 sound all day long ..just w/ a bit more gain, which to me is never a bad thing...

    Congrats, Enjoy ..it's actually kind of an addictive sound

    Nice! One of the three big guitar sounds after Marshall and Fender.
    I was mentioning that to the SO. I now have a JC120, AC30, Fender Quad (Twin), Marshall JCM, Carvin X100B, and a few others. If I can not find a tone to satisfy my itch the problem is me.
