    Got another Mesa OS 4x12 [​IMG]

    Picked up one a few weeks back, but it sounded horrible. Not sure if a speaker cab can be broken but something wasn't right despite the wiring looking original. Anyway, this one sounds right.

    The Bogner is much warmer/thicker (compressed?), despite having to T75s (its an UberKab). The Mesa extends more top and bottom. The giant Mesa makes everything sound a bit "mean" and angry while the Bogner can be more relaxed.

    After seeing that Power Soak, i remember a JMP50 2x12 combo i had around 84-85..

    Bought that power soak , a SD-1 and a Gibson Dirty Fingers pick up with a tax Return for my Gibson SG....had a coiled cable....and i felt like a Rock star with that tone...ah memories !

    That's awesome. I didn't even know the Power Soak had been around that long. I got mine in the mid 90s but never really used it. Nowadays I use it with the 5150, not so much to attenuate a cranked amp, but just a little attenuation to help tame the touchy master volume knob.

    I bought it when they 1st came out T.F...i think it was around that time 85 ish..

    In the 90's i had the Marshall power brake , but by then i went full on Rack gear....but always had a Marshall head or two laying around...wish i kept them

    I paid $250 for that JMP combo...you could buy heads about the same ...always someone needing cash back then in my area...ah the 80's man !

    Never actually owned one of these heads before:

    This may sound stupid at this point, but OMG this thing is awesome. The OG 5150 is a bit too burly for me, but this lead channel is right on.

    Wish I'd gotten on this train a lot sooner. I've owned way too many expensive and fancy amps but this thing is just killer. Loved the AFXIII model of it so had to try to real amp.

    Sweet setup right there sir. Just curious: how do you manage speaker connections? Are you always getting behind things to connect cabs to amps?

    I use Radial Engineering Headbone VT to switch between pairs of heads. I wired switches up for the Headbone to control on the floor and wired up some patch bays. I only need to plug in one spot and that's it. Then tap a switch or two and I can run any of the heads on the shelf. A lot of work but totally worth the effort.

    It was a lot of work and rigging, but it was SO worth it at the end. The cabs are at the side of the room, and the pedal boards are on the floor. The whole thing turned out great. All in all over 300' of cable, which I bought in bulk from BTPA and soldered with switchraft jacks, the power was another challenge but I came up with a decent system and made it work.

    Good! Every newborn needs space for their first half stack.

    We were in a tiny apartment when our first was born. He had to make due with tight sleeping arrangements.

    I really need some cable management. This is my current rig though!

    My old rig is currently being dissolved. It was:

    Randall RM100 MTS, Ultra and Deluxe modules
    EVH 5150 III Ivory 2x12
    (Pedalboard) Maxon OD9, TC Electronic Sentry, Boss DM-2w (series loop), Keeley Compressor Plus.

    I have attached (or at least tried to attach) the rig I'm building since I start a new job Monday.
