    opps, my mistake. When you said
    I took that as being about the mods for the Epi costing considerably more money than just the stock Epi. But now I take it you meant the ZVex costs more than an Epi but holds it's own nicely.

    Is it true that that little 1watt(?) amp can shake the windows hooked up to a nice 4x12? Very interesting amp.

    Wow ...there is a bunch of them b...you might check out 18watt.com. Also although I've never played or heard one, I've heard "Great Things" about Cierratone (SP?) offerings. The power tranny on those look quite funky however.

    Why is it every thread involving Angus gets 3 new pages per day?

    It's probably because something that was quite interesting to some of us got thrown up during conversation.
    Many apologies >:(

    Starting at $99usa on a new 5watt head with nothing but an on/off switch and volume control.

    spmeone stealin your thunder?
    in response, I think that the Valve junior sounds great stock. and when i plug in my SG and danelectro fab it sounds a lot better than that tiny 1watt head.

    Bacon changed the 12AX7 to a 12AT7, I do believe.

    Common guys cut Vox and Vic some slack. We all know they're tone snobs of the first degree.

    I like my Epi . . . yes, it is modded - but I bought it for just that purpose
    . . . I've had much more expensive amps that I did not like as much
    . . . I did not like the Vox ADVT or Tonelab as much
    . . . I think my Epi sounds great!

    I learned a lot more by messin with it than I did with any of the others
    . . . I now feel empowered to tackle building something a little more complicated from scratch
    . . . I could probably fix it if it broke
    . . . I learnt nuthin from any of my other amps (except that they weren't what I was lookin for)

    In summary, I feel like I've gotten a lot more out of this little rig than I put into it

    so pffffffft :p
