    ...so, based on the reviews, I just bought this. I have intentions of using it on the next Division disc. Anyone here have one?

    The only downside with it is the placement of the mic can't be changed at all.. that and the speaker size itself.

    Sounds like a pretty nifty idea, I've been planning to just build a big box to put my whole cab in (after taking caster wheels off) with 4 covered holes for different micing options.

    Do they got something like that where you can use your own mic?

    True. However, they seem to have optimized the mic capsule and speaker to give a "big cab" sound, at least from the lights-out reviews it's been getting...

    Randall does, but it a.) comes with a V30 and b.) doesn't isolate worth a shit.

    That looks very very cool! May have to see if they have them over here, although it'll most probably be a total rip off :(

    Actually, most of the early reviews were from U.K. magazines. You should be able to get one here, at least...

    Never heard of this one, but neat! Keep us updated on what you think of it once you get to mess with it some. At some point, I'll be in the market for an isolation cab and would like some alternatives to the Randall since I've heard some bad things about it.

    I will be letting everyone know, believe me. If this works out, it could be one of the more useful things I've purchased, since I can see multiple uses for it...

    You pay: 299$ = 150£.

    Their price: £375 including VAT = 750$

    Welcome to rip off britain. And people ask me why i just buy stuff from the states and swallow the import. Maybe becuse it is still cheaper :/ *sigh*

    ...is also a great tune by kreator.

    apparently the studio technique was named after the song. the same applying for active pickup having been invented for the bee gees for their flute solos.

    Console yourself with the knowledge that over here a top-spec Blackmachine is still cheaper than a custom shop Schecter - and they could almost never afford the Blackmachine. :lol:

    Well, mine was used - new they're $399, + $120 for international shipping to you, plus whatever the import taxes are, so, yeah, they're still raping you. :lol:

    lemmie see 520$ + 20% = 625$ (if you get done) which is still 150$ cheaper. So yeah, it's daylight robbery really! In fact I reckon import may even be less...depends on whether the monkeys include the postage on the calculation.

    Man, this country really does arse rape it's citizens...
