My comment was supposed to be saved as a draft and edited.... I posted it instead. :oops:

Comment was edited to make it less inflammatory. Rather than retracting it, I'll amend it with this.

Some of the mods were not correct based on the information available today. But for someone that was aiming for a goal without actually seeing it fully, you came a lot closer than most people would have. It's already been established that you've been doing these mods long before the info was available and that some of the mods may not be exactly what was in Jerry's Twins and since no one has seen one in recent years, it's not certain what was done to them.

I'm curious to know what the thought process was behind the mods and what your goals were with them.

Sorry Joe if my comment offended, that was not my goal since that was NOT meant for public viewing until I had edited it. It wasn't intended to be a scathing indictment of you and your work.

Welcome Joe! At least I was impressed!

Hey Vic ..Hey all, No I honestly dont care who slams what on here I know its all in good fun (I hope) I'm not gonna judge or get pissy with anyone here. I just didnt like that other page where Rat has remodded that amp and puts it out there for all to see. This is why i ask whoever I mod an amp for NOT to send it to another tech who can easily go and trash my work for self serving purposes. But hey, I am also chuckling at this as well. This is common occurrence with amp mods especially nowadays with forums like this! Hey , I would have loved to be the one who refreshed that amp for ya Mike and It just pains me deep inside (no actually it doesn't) to see this. I'd love to hear it soon and want to come to the area soon and maybe see Vic and Mike's bands in one swing! Heres a clip I made the other day. I was playing along with '77 sndbrd @ The Palladium and wow its so damn close its scary! If it had that big transformer sound to go with it, THAT would be the shiznit!
