Guy that cuts my hair has a super twin, claims it's loud as well. In the 70s I set my twin on an old table for a stand or a bud beer box. So directional, you didn't want to be in front of the beam from it. It has the same coffee can SROs in it that Keaggy used in the early 70s. He gigged with two in those days, tilted back, mic'd and sometimes moving blankets over the top.
