I'm thinking solid state for the rare occasion you need a backup, Id get a CR120 head, it is based off the Rockerverb preamp and light weight.
This -- my CR120 is backup to my OR100 and RV100.

Re: I Think I Just Opened the Gateway to Hell!!!

I want to hear it too! I was just summoning unholy noises from my OR50 in the rehearsal room the other night, but scooping the mids would not have occurred to me. :D Here's an OR50 / OR100 fuzz trick I stumbled on with the MXR Micro-Amp +: with the amp gain at 2:00 or so...dime the pedal gain, bass ...

Re: PPC212V anyone done a shootout?

In the pics on Sweetwater's site, the back plate says "designed and made in England". Dunno if they have started US production on this cab, but in any event I own both US and English Orange cabs, and can't hear or feel a difference.

Did you catch this video? I liked the mid-rangey character of the 212V here:

All I would care about is a Single channel LUNCHBOX 40-60 watt 6l6/6v6 based with a PROPER EQ cleanmachine :)
I roll about in filth, having no need of a clean channel, but I second the call for a 50-watt lunchbox! That would be a very useful gigging amp for me.

Re: My Dual Dark is dead. Help needed...

Yes, that sounds right. When I bought a Euro spec TV200 from Thomann, all I had to do to get it running on this end was change the mains fuse and throw the voltage switch -- and the fuse was included in the box. :D

Re: STRINGS! what do you use?

For the last few years it's been D'Addario 11-52 (medium top/heavy bottom) on all my guitars, from E-standard to C-standard tuning. I've been happy with them so far.

Daisy-chaining and ohms

I haven't quite wrapped my head around daisy-chaining and the resulting ohm load. More specifically: is there a way to run three PPC412s from a single OR100 head by daisy-chaining two of the cabs...? I have always run either one cab from the 16- or two cabs from the 8-ohm outputs, as per instruction...
