    Got it ! He's got a show on the 20th, then it's mine. NAD to come.

    WOOHOO ! First real tube amp in a while. I had a Bassman and a big Traynor YBA-A3 in the '70s, when I played bass.
    Now I mostly play Vox Valvetronics.

    Did you get a used one... with or without the Cyclops Eye?

    I've never seen or played one personally, but I've been impressed by the video clips and owner's reviews of them. Plus, for a 4x10 50watt combo they are pretty light: 61lbs. Super Reverbs are a lot heavier, and my Rivera Quiana 50watt 4x10, weighs 85lbs.

    What I actually got was scr**ed. Seller aceepted my offer. I paid. When I sent a message asking if I could have the shipping address changed to my work address, instead of simply saying no, they cancelled my transaction. Buyer beware.

    I had a Handsome Devil head and 2 1x12" cabs. Pretty nice little rig.

    Amp GAS is the worst. I've gone through so many great amps that I should be publicly flogged.

    Egnater, Peavey, Fender, Budda, Dr. Z, Swart, Marshall, Reinhardt, Fargen, Splawn, Suhr...

    Don't go down that rabbit hole! Find something that works and stick with it!

    Aaaargh... I want a Vox AC30 now :mad:

    There are some bo-tiki names in your GAS list. So now you want a VOX... Have you looked into 65 Amps? They do the Vox vibe with the obligatory modern touches on their London amp.

    yeah that happens because nowadays 90% of the time when someone does that the cards stolen.
    and not implying yours was im just saying that's why they canceled so quick.

    I get it. However, I resubmitted. Let's see if I have been blacklisted!

    I have a couple of them along with a 4x12 2x12 1x12 and the bh15 with a greenback is the only combo
    I currently have . Past 5 years I have went thru fender marshal egnater also . those Bh15 can be modded
    really close to the 74 x by the right amp tech.I also have a Orange Or 15 and plexi clone. the 65 amps are very nice .

    You might try calling them first . they may agree but ask a 5 day holding period before shipping.

    I played one through a Marshall 1960A 4x12 at GC yesterday. It was NICE! The switchable wattage worked nicely also.

    I've had GAS for a classic Princeton Reverb (later SF with a bigger transformer) since I picked up a guitar. You want clean? That's the dictionary definition... :thumb:
