    So after trying to sell my Axe FX for a few weeks, I got an offer for this giant of an amp. So far I am really impressed with how tweakable and versatile it is. It kinda caught me off guard because I wasn't really expecting a bunch of versatility. I don't really know how long I will be holding onto this guy because the mini rectifiers have been whispering sweet little nothings in my ear for a quite a while, but it's a fun and great sounding amp for now.

    Cheers!

    Ha, I might hang on to it for a while. I haven't decided yet. That's a pretty awesome set up! Sadly I have only really heard this amp through my 212 Avatar cab. It probably shines through a 412 though...

    What speakers do you have in the Avatar?

    I STRONGLY recommend getting a Fryette cab with P50Es, if you want the best out of it. Doesn't necessarily need to be a 4x12...Fryette has a couple 2x12s also!

    It's one of those rare cases where the matching cab actually is the best match for the amp. Don't underestimate what a cab will do to the sound...the other cab in my picture is a custom-built one, front-loaded, similar dimensions to the FB412 next to it. They even have the same speakers...but sound noticeably different.

    Don't mean to jack the thread here, but I figured it'd be better than making a new one.
    Warrior, have you used both the Deliverance cab and Fatbottom? If so, which did you prefer?

    Congrats on the new amp, Kro!

    I've never tried the D412, so I can't make any comments on it from personal experience.

    My cab just has V30's in it, closed back. The guy I traded told me that the Fryette cabs sound phenomenal with the amp so I was strongly considering picking one up. Maybe...:lol:

    I agree! I read that and was like fuck yeah!

    Yep, while V30s sounded fine with my D120, the Weber Thames (Fane copies) in my Reeves cab really brought out some absolutely incredible tones. I found the V30s were too spiky and fizzy for my taste.

    And for the sake of being a copycat -

    The v30's sound pretty decent to me. I might take this to my friend's to hear it through a 4x12 recto cab. I mainly play at bedroom levels, however, so I think this might be too much amp for me :lol:...

    I had one for awhile last year and that is why I had to sell it. I like big amps (My main amp is a Triple Recto), but the D120 just did not play nice with the bedroom....

    Nothing on the Deliverance is footswitchable. There's a pretty significant volume difference between the more/less settings, and a bit of a noise when you switch, too. It's not something that would be terribly practical as a footswitchable feature...but honestly, you don't need it to be. The amp will go from pristine cleans to full on metal using just your guitar's controls and your playing dynamics.

    this is true, though you can still get it modded to be footswitchable if you REALLY need it. same goes for an effects loop. but if you start modding your D it'll lose some of that magic.
