      Thanks for the info, man. I had always wondered some about those TT heads and it's good to hear a good review of them.

      Hey, I saw that you have a TT50. How do you like it? How does it compare tonally and dynamically to the VH100R?

      The overly-liquidy feel of the El D is the problem for me - can't quite get it to sound tight enough in the low end without using a boost.

      Don't get me wrong - I absolutely LOVE its voicing. It's like a cross between my Soldano SP-77, and a Bogner Ecstasy or something. But it gets a tad too saturated (atleast for my tastes), which kinda results in not enough tightness on the low end, and not enough clarity for chords.

      Still...I'm confident I'll be able to tweak around and get the kinda tone I'm hearing in my head; for now, however, the boost stays. :P

      Cheers for the reply! I already have the El D combo now, and getting a decent metal tone out of it (still having to use a boost, though). Still learning how to get around the active EQ, however; but I'm quite happy with the amp as is.

      Hey. Thanks for replying in my thread! Do you reckon the El D combo can do a dry, modern metal tone? Something along the vein of, say, Opeth's "Deliverance"?

      Also, is the effects loop parallel? Or is it series?

      Sorry for the delay, time of year and such cuts inot the important stuff like music! ;-) When you get chance, upload as I'd love to hear your music/thoughts.

      I neglected to say this in my reply, I am glad you are home safe and sound. We've lost some of the best people of a generation in Iraq and Afghanistan.

      Have a Merry Xmas if you don't reply before then!

      Well I am looking at doing some "Cult of Luna" type stuff. I am really into just making heavy groove stuff right now, but I am up for anything.... Right now since I left my current band I don't really have any MP3s available. I will uplaod some in the next couple of days and send em to you.

      Hey I was wondering if you were still interested in doing that online collaberation. I am looking at writting some very slow groov stuff like Cult of Luna. Sorry I was out of the loop for a long time, I did my last tour of duty with the US Army so I am free to do music. If you are interested let me know.
