    As a bedroom player...obviously, a 4x12 cab.

    Yep, that's the right way to do it! I'm a bedroom player too, and I've got a 2x3 (or whatever the Yamaha THR thingy has) and a 4x12. No need for any middle ground bullshit......

    412 is perfect for bedroom playing. Dead serious. You want decent low end at bedroom volumes? Bigger cab. That simple.

    I used to have two 412 cabs as a bedroom jammer and god I miss it.

    I either play an Axe-FX through headphones/studio monitors or I play two full-sized heads, each through a 4x12 cab. Anything in the middle is just disappointing IMO.

    Mesa Boogie Fillmore 50, just for the old school voicing on the Lead channel.

    And on the other end of the spectrum, an EVH 5150 III for the modern ultragain thing.

    I was gifted one of these a few years ago and it's a great little fridge. Tacky, but adorable.

    Anyone heard anything about the Fender Engine Room pedal power supplies?

    [​IMG]

    EDIT: Actually dunno why I'm looking at this one. The Voodoo PP3 has more outs. Only advantage the Engine Room has if you're using 2 18v supplies. With the Voodoo Labs PP3 you need to tap 2 9v outs to power an 18v pedal, and I'm only running 1. Plus with the PP3 I can get the X-link cable and run my X4 and have 4 extra outs. I love overkill. :D

    ...Turns out I was looking at the PP3+. :lol: The PP3+ has 12 outs, the PP3 has 8. So the PP3 and LVL 8 are very similar. Buuut I have the X4 so I could get more out of getting the PP3.

    I’m expecting delivery of a matching 4X12 for my MI Audio Megalith Beta V2 , in about three weeks . It’s on a ship from Australia, which means a long wait!

    I have miracolously been able to avoid buying anything for the last...3 weeks? But I'm avidly looking for the right ESP M-II or Horizon FR deal...!

    Fuck yeah you did! Have to let me know what you think of it man, I really enjoy mine.

    Good enough cleans, ch A can be vintage or not, ch B is straight thrash if you want it to be. That amp is the closest I’ve ever had to the sound in my head and I’ve had some nice amps, and a lot that cost way more than the DD did.

    Looking fwd to your impressions. When’s it show?

    Redoing mods on a Strat. Not liking how the H-S-H config is sounding in this guitar, so I'm gonna just convert it to H-H.

    Back to trying to decide how to get my ideal jazzmaster...

    I'll let you know! It was only listed for 2 hours before I snatched it up so I feel super lucky that I just so happened to be on the prowl for one at that time.

    I'll try to do some shitty phone clips of it when it arrives (as if there aren't enough shitty clips of that amp lol).

    Should be here within 2 weeks I think. Its only shipping from 1 state over (Nevada) but, the seller hasn't actually shipped it yet.
