It is going to be very interesting to hear on of these babies once they are built.

Thanks for being so open and forthcoming.

Nice looking unit! Did you ever get the pricing sorted out?

NICE!!!

I know you have a specific mindset with this but if I might... If you ever decide to add a normal output and a secondary with a simulator of 2x12 D120F mic'd by an SM-57 I'd be the first in line :P

Beautiful!

I forgot what a unit looks like with just the stuff you need. What's the estimated pricing on these? Do you have a blurb or some kind of promo lit for them?

Introductory price for this first run will be $695 + $20 shipping/insurance + $18.50 (PayPal 3% fee). Payable via PayPal to me at this address:
bradsarno@earthlink.net

Or I'm taking money orders to avoid the PayPal fee.

I do intend to tinker with speaker emulations someday, but getting as specific as a D120 mic'd by a SM57 is pretty unrealistic of an expectation without doing digital modeling. My intent is always that this thing drives a real power amp into a real speaker.

Thanks all,
Brad

Jonarobb,

currently one of my better blurbs on the thing is on page 1 of this thread. I hope to get the website updated by Monday or so. Currently, you all here are the first to know.

NICE WORK!! this is exactly what most "just want", but carry a bunch of extra poundage, myself included, getting it around and you put it into a one space rack unit! i know you have enough on your plate now! :cool: but how about a scaled down solidstate mc2300 clone mated with the classic, in a combo, with choice of speakers! just kidding, but a man can dream, right?

can't wait to get mine!

peace,
waldo

Hey Brad,

You're missing an opportunity if you don't make some kind of arrangement with a power amp builder so that you can offer to sell the power amp as well.

I'd love to try one ... and A/B/C/D it in my studio with a preamped 73 Twin, GT Trio and Egnater M4 with the Twin/Deluxe module (my current preamp of choice) with the Tiger, Real Tube Reverb, Focus 2R power amp and 2X12 E120 cab. I have a pair of K-110s in here now, too.

But I'm afraid I'll like it too much and buy it!

I'm fairly happy with the Egnater now ... http://playingdead.net/cumberland.html ... but I'm a restless man when it comes to gear. As we all know.

Hey Brad! Good to know! When you do I'll happily mail you a deposit! I only chose that arrangement as it's what I think of as the "mecca" of a real mic'd Twin at a show!

Can't wait to hear the reviews...

Brad
That would be phenomenal!!!! My suggestion was more in-line with what would be palatable to the masses. But those in the "know" would DEFINITELY prefer the Senn421!!!

What's wrong with mic'ing a real speaker with a real mic? Is this for in-ear direct use with no stage volume?
