Thus the mic. A little PA support, but really it works.

I'm surprised you're not recommending the 100T also. [smilie=grinning-smiley-044.gif]

There was a correction to the article posted on TB. You don't need to have a cab plugged into the head when the amp is on. Fender has confirmed this. So, you could just take the head to a studio and record it with the mute engaged.

I sold off my SVT 8X10 and V-9. I don't even miss it. Still have my V4-B, and the vintage MM rig is pretty fun. [smilie=grinning-smiley-003.gif]

Do you need to have a tube rig?
If not, you might wanna consider an old Acoustic rig. I've been using a friends 150B lately ....sounds great!

Old MM 100 waters can be found for reasonable. I have about 500 in mine after a full internal run through and retubing with Winged C 6L6 power tubes. Those tubes are highly recommended as the Mm design has a very high plate voltage. The Wnged C's are supposed to be the strongest available. The MM amps have big iron for their class and so can get loud as heck before the grind sets in. Pair it with an efficient 2x15 and you'll be shocked at how much air it can push. Put a Heil PR-40 mic on it and there ya go.

I run mine in the 50 watt mode most of the time so I can get it to the sweet spot at a reasonable stage volume.

Not vintage, but sure sounds like it.

Well, I just got a great deal on the SB300. It was used but looks brand new. Took it to a gig the other and fired it up for the first time. It's definitely a tone monster. It's only 65 lbs which isn't bad considering. Much easier to move than the SVT. Now I need to get the matching 410. [smilie=grinning-smiley-044.gif]

This amp is a tone monster. I just need to pair it up with the right cab and it'll be absolutely killer. Right now I'm using it at home with a Markbass 410HF and it sounds great.

Ken, I second nolapete's recommendation of 2 B-15Ns...I like the blue tolex ones, but the later black tolex ones have a little bit bigger cabs and more wattage making them more suitable for live work. I also have loved the old Kustom tuck 'n' rolls w/2x15 cabs when I've heard them live and you can find 'em cheap from time to time.
