    The day has arrived... I have collected enough coins to bring this beauty home. I was considering to buy pre-owned for 850€ but this week the prices have been lowered to 1110€ brand new... So next week I hope to post a very happy NGD

    Curiosity got the best of me so I grabbed the Torpedo Studio. I’ve been using my Fryette Power Load and Wall of Sound a lot lately. Much more convenient than mic’ing cabs in my basement and sounds better too! Figured I’d try the Studio out for recording; and I can rack my Power Load with my 2:90 and use it as an attenuator when I want to run my amps hotter than my neighborhood likes :lol:

    I tried to grab a Studio yesterday too, but someone apparently hit the guy up sooner than I did. I've been using my Live for about 6 years and every so often I think about upgrading.

    It’s been great for the few hours I’ve been using it. You’d think they’d hook you up with all the cabs for the price; but there are some nice ones pre loaded at least. MLsound Lab IRs sound awesome in it too. Definitely liking it so far.

    It suddenly hit me that I need an Axe 3. I keep hitting the DSP limit on my Helix due to the way I run amps, so it's annoying the fuck out of me. May try and save for one.

    Yeah definitely. I bought the Fortin cab pack which seems like a great match for the Splawn so I’ll record something this weekend.

    Too late to edit my last post:
    This is the Splawn Super Comp with Gain around 11:00ish and Volume at 12:00. BMT is 9:00,12:00,1:00 respectively and I used different Fortin Cabs for Left, Right, and the solo. I even used the Splawn for the bass with the Volume at 2:00 and the Gain at 5:30, but used a stock Two-Notes bass cab for the impulse response. Just a quick riff and noodle.

    So uhh...none of these things happened, but they're still on the to-do list. I've made a handful of really good trades and purchases the last few weeks, though.

    Traded my Recto 2x12 cab for a Budda Superdrive V20 about two weeks ago, then traded the Budda for a Helix LT with the matching backpack earlier today. Haven't played with it much, but it seems like a nice unit. I doubt it will replace my Axe FX II, though.

    I also bought a Suhr Reactive Load and Little Labs DI/reamp box. The Suhr is killer, but the reamp box was a different version from what the ad said. Sent it back today and I'll be getting the right one soon :yesway:

    Snagged the block letter that was posted in the For Sale thread here. Very stoked to soon have the best 5150 variant \m/

    Definitely like! Thank you for not diming the gain lol. And the playing was legit. I’ll need you to purchase and demo stuff for me in the future... I was thinking about a KSR Juno or Fortin when I get back stateside (one of these dry highgain EL34 beasts)

    What the fuck isn't on your list or currently in your possession? Nick might want to be careful, because if you get maybe three more amps, you can open your own store! :rofl:

    (I'm kidding around, man. Thanks again for the kick ass speakers!)

    Quick is a relative term I suppose :lol: I think you’d really like the QR. You can get a dry tone or an all out saturated high gain unwieldy tone. It’s definitely more compressed than the Ultra Lead, but not so compressed that the dynamics suffer.

    Juno is definitely not dry. I mean you can run it drier by keeping the gain low and the feel on 1-2, but it's got a good bit of sag and saturation. It also has a less crisp high end than other KSRs. The feel reminds me of CH2+ on the Herbert with the way I have it set up. I think it's the best sounding and feeling KSR.
