How do you like the Mosvalve TRG?

Hey hippieguy1954, I actually don't really use it. I bought it as a back up for my MC250. However from the small amount of time that I've messed around with it, I like the sound I can get out of it...just not as much as my mac! :-)

How do you like your speaker choices? Ive been toying with the idea of trying some JBL alternatives myself. Im tired of trying to hunt down good JBLs and paying for them too!


Ya don't have to hunt for these, but you do have to pay! http://www.usspeaker.com/JBL%20e120-1.htm These are exact clones of E120's. Exact same specs. etc. I have two E120's and two new Liberty8's. I can't hear any difference at all!

Thanks for your kind words for the rig.

Regarding my speaker choices, I'll be honest: I'm off the JBL bus. I'm prioritizing weight over tone. Sure, I need to be be in the ballpark for Jerry tone but no way in hell am I carting around a 2X12 containing a pair of 20 lbs. each speakers no matter how "perfect" they sound. So factoring in how my pair of speakers weigh a total of 12 lbs. together, yes, I'm quite happy with my current choices.

With my SSP 2X12, I started out with a pair of Weber NeoMags with aluminum caps but was not happy with the tone. At the volumes I play at (i.e., not driven very hard at large stage volumes as did Jerry with his JBLs), I found the aluminum caps shrill on top and the speakers, overall, whimpy in the lower mids.

Now I'm pairing a Weber NeoMag with a paper cap with a Jensen Neo 12-100. The NeoMag has, to my ears, a sweet high end and chimey upper mids. The 12-100 contributes classic Fendery highs and robust lower mids. The latter are very important to me for "my sound" as, consistent with Jerry's settings (and Waldo's exhortations :smile: ), I am now convinced of the merits of setting my preamp's bass control near zero!
