    I used to use the older MG412 A and B cabs exclusively. A lot of ppl hate them, but I think they sound great.
    They are light, small and cheap.
    I grabbed 1 recently to use with a 5150 in the black metal band I re-joined.

    I really don't think those brands are in danger of not surviving. Some people actually play outside of their bedroom and want a full sized amp.

    Also reactive loadboxes and impulses are all the rage now.

    And on small stages, too. Torpedo Live + Your own powered FR speakers. Crank those 120w monsters all you want.

    That's not the word I'm hearing from dealers. And with brands like Orange and Mesa, their low-watt stuff is making up far more of their sales than their 100W heads. It's not an ideological point: for every play-outside-regularly-guy, there's 10 bedroom guys, and it's only shifting more and more in that direction. Or digital. On top of that, with modern PAs it's not like the 100W is necessary for the sound to cover the venue.

    Yea, I mean, I've got 8 amps that are 90W+ and 1 that's 15 (badcat), so preaching to the choir. Maybe this is going to be the shift, but there's still the issue of like a PRS MT15 / Mesa recto/mark 35 being $700-1500, vs. getting some 100W amp at like $4k (to run with the buy-new-Fryette example) and then + $1-1.5k more for one of the newer high-end load boxes. So most of the market's going to be 15-25 yr olds, still hard to justify that much of a difference for marginally better tone.

    Yeah, it was fun being able to tank a 75w, 90w, and 120w tube amp in pure silence with my Torpedo Live. :lol:

    But I really, really couldn't justify owning any tube amps period ATM. So I just do everything with my helix now. Close enough. :lol:

    I thought takin one for the team now adays only meant buying a knockoff guitar from China; just to give a brutally honest review :lol: that’s a great deal on a wicked amp. Go get it. Your Peters is ancient at this point, being what, 4 weeks, 5 weeks old? It’s time for something new!

    Ordered a custom TightMetal Pro with Res and Pres. The Jr is just phenomenal and decided i wanted the control that the Pro offers with the extra loops.

    Well I finally got a chance to use mine. It actually does work with the Helix. Just had to set it to "other" and use it with the polarity reversed.

    Makes me wanna try my Moog EP3 to see if it also works too.

    Cool. Have fun with it.

    Also I can comfirm the Moog EP3 works. You also have to set it to "other", set the Helix to Reverse polarity, and use a standard TS cable vs the included TRS.

    Finally a Mayones Regius....and I guess there's a JPX coming with it too, no big deal :lol:

    All jokes aside stoked to finally try a Mayones and will be cool to put the JPX against my JPXI as the XI is probably my favorite guitar right now.

    It's on the pedal itself. Underneath the pedal there's gonna be a physical switch.
