    Second attenuator turned up damaged (different shop this time, same product). Doing an exchange on Thursday. Haven't had chance to test the input/jumpering options yet.

    Playing kinda low at home today with the strat neck pickup with normal channel at 4 and the high one at 1 or so on the 5 watt mode sounded great. Warm punchy and dynamic, what's good about these 4 hole plexi's I can add more bass or treble to the sound opposed to the origin. Loud I will try this weekend the fuzz worked good too.

    The Studio Classic absolutely loves Fuzz so I can just imagine Vintage sounding even better.

    That's a strong case for the Combo being a great choice!! Gettin' the Vintage GAS now.

    curious if you ever ran all the tone knobs dimed..i do that with my jmp50 and today had a blast on that setting..i.dont play it like that all the time but it def is a great way to run one when you feel like having dynamics like crazy at your finger tips..adjust to taste with treble/normal channel,

    They record really well also. The origins I played 20c 50c sounded good in person but almost every one I heard recorded sounded thin and bland.

    Anyone here have a Redcoat Reighnmaker cab they can do a demo on in 5w mode. I think they go from 100db to about 90db?
    May be a handy cab to have arround home?

    The more I read about these, especially talk about attenuators, the more I feel perfectly happy with my 1987x and JTM45.

    It seems, that many guys had underestimated, how loud the Studio Vintage is with the volumes at noon even in 5W mode.
    A 0,5W mode on both the studio models would have been great!

    I don't even consider my 1987x or JTM45 "too loud", but yes, at home, they need a notch or 2 of attenuation (they still sound great).

    Yeh they are a studio/gig amp which doesnt bother "me" at all. "But" it would be a good idea to tame things for home practice at certain times of the month.:io::iough: I'm curious about these Maverick or Reignmaker's not only for the SV20H when it turns up but also its room mate a 68 CPRRI which is currently getting a DR multi tap transformer. :naughty:
    Anyway, may be safer to put another cab together for universal applications & situations and calling it the Peacemaker.

    Yeah, I've never tried adjustable output speakers, not sure how they work. The only thing that comes to mind, is that maybe they're limiting the movement of the voice coil through some sort of variable damping (spring...).
