    Managed to find myself a used EthosTWE-1 on reverb. It was delivered today. The disappointment is that I am 1500 miles away and won't be back for several weeks. Suppose I could fly home for the weekend, play the shit out of it for 36 hours and fly back Monday.

    This all started because I was looking at high end amps that I could never afford which led me all around youtube until I landed on a demo of the Ethos. Everything I've seen since about it sounds great to me then one popped up. Rare in the UK so it's now mine. Considerably cheaper than a genuine trainwreck express even if I could find one then there's that whole argument with Mrs Plexi about why I sold the house to buy a guitar amplifier etc etc.

    Yeah, but it's not a real Trainwreck unless it's built with wire that has directional insulation made of special material? Well, is it? MUAHHH

    Just kidding. Hope you get to enjoy it soon.
