    And of course if you have kids over the age of about 18 months, one of them can easily make the video for you while you or a friend plays. :)

    I showed your amp-cabinet stack to my artist wife, @usul1978. She was amazed at your design and execution, and sends her compliments.

    She's getting ready to marbleize a removable table top I made to complete my 2x12 closed-back coffee table.

    Wow, that is awesome! You ought to make more of those. Could be a nice little cottage business for you. I think your Rolex looks really good.

    Thank you guys !

    The idea of making stuff to sell is appealling, but I don't know if it would be the same fun : I would need to rethink how I work or else the cost would be high !

    I showed my daughter your amp and cabinet yesterday @usul1978. She's really into art and design and got a degree in design from NC State University. She really liked it and gushed over the details like the laminated wood, the cutout shape for the grill, and the legs.

    @usul1978 I missed this!

    I'd love that standing in the corner of my living room, it looks brilliant. :thumb:

    Thank you guys ! I'm really happy that people like it.

    Bad design is not an option for me, or else my wife won't accept my stuff out of the shed : )

    Soundwise, I'm getting into it. No crazy gain but it sounds really nice with some boost in front of it to make it screams. The greenback sounds good with big OD and the gold is great for low od and great cleans...Together ? I'll need to look better into that. But with the EQ, variable power, gain and master volume, it may be long to find the best sweet spots !
