    Winner of round 1 solidly defeating the newcomer Kid Crate weighing in at about 15 pounds Vox Cambridge played through a AlNiCo British voiced speaker. Taking on The Champ, putting out 6 or so watts and sporting a brand new Mullard power and preamp tube and played through a WGS The Veteran.
    Let's get ready to .... well you know (it cost over 10 K just to say it).
    As always in a rush and the Champ needs to be wide open to give up the goods and the volume is messin with my wonderful phone, so sorry it sucks. o_O

    Wow. Really close . And that guitar came out beautiful.

    I choose 1. A bit Fuller sound, I think. Tough though, very similar .

    I was pretty surprised to see the Champ go down, but that's what happens when you climb into the ring.

    Oh hell another voting controversy, the race had been called but team 2 was not going to concede what to do, this could be tied up in the courts for a year or longer o_O
