Okay, after some more time with it, it sounds a lot more like an OR80 if you play it though a 4x12 cab, so apparently speakers make a difference.Gladmarr wrote: ↑Wed Sep 05, 2018 2:19 amI’ve only had a few moments with it so far. It’s a little nasaly at the moment. It’s not like an OR80, because of the gain structure, the contour control (which is a lot different from the FAC), the open back combo configuration, and maybe some dirty pots affecting EQ settings. I’m going to take it apart, clean it, photograph it some more, and tube it up. I might have to defeat the contour control to make it sound better. It is a mean sounding machine, but not what I’m used to yet.

Yup, speakers are 50% of the equation, IMO. Glad to hear you're warming up to it. I've only played the head version. I remember it being very chunky sounding, not unlike a SF Twin, but darker. This was at least 15 years ago though. It's been a while.
Andy! Good to see you lurking around.
