    So it seems some people only have 1 day a year for their birthday! To hell with that shit.
    First of, I love Siouxsie and the banshees, hard to play Israel without this!

    Then of course, I've got a few P90 guitars lately, noisy Lil buggers thru the studio Classic. Problem solved!

    Also, not arrived yet due to be delivered by a different company today is prize number three!

    I really like the silencer. I have seen people bag on it but it's a great noise reducer. I think it works better than the ol tried and true NS/2. I did fry one once by accidentally using an 18v adapter to power it but EH still replaced it for me for the cost of shipping.

    It's working as a single input no problems, can't get the Lil bugger to work with the fx loop, not the end of the world I suppose but still....

    Man after my own heart, Happy Birthday / pedal day! I have been known to squander a few bucks on myself. Every Christmas the 1st $1000 goes to me, I even wrap and stick my goodies under the tree.

    Doesn't the Sioixsie guitar sound need an MXR Flanger? (unless you already have one)

    Actually I just looked up the price, think I'll stick with the phase 90 for now, sounds pretty bloody good actually.

    Okay, got home from work after my 16th day straight ( 3 to go till 2 days off and mah birfday)
    And you know, you really just can't be bothered.
    But I did it anyway! Greenie has a new home!

    Sounds deep too, only had a go on the classic gain ( clean channel)
    It's bitching. Lots of low end even not broken in. Love it!

    Looks like a tight fit.
    Did you enlarge the baffle hole?

    Nope, the oldguyjammin youtube clip says no need, it's just the suspension that sits out the cone is pretty much all through the baffle.
    The bottom of the amp needed a slot cut out to make it fit, 5 inches wide, speaker sits in there but doesn't protrude out the bottom

    Got to play with the ultra gain after a short ( too short) sleep, and it sounds alot more defined than I remember, I know the 823 changed it, but I think the 12 inch made it less, umm mushy if that makes sense.
    I could just be remembering it wrong, or maybe my playing has gone from 99 % suck age to 98 % suck age.
    Had volume at 8 and even got the gain to 8ish and not everything sounded awful.
    Lots still did, but not everything. And gain at 4 or 5 actually sounded quite good.
