    Having the SC and SV stacks next to each other looks the absolute dogs bollocks! Great practice space.

    Thanks @copilot great post ! Tbh I'm quite tempted to get a PS2,to me the load/reamp idea is much more appealing than using an attenuator, especially for my use case.

    Glad the PS2 is working out for you! Do us a favor, will you? Please start a thread about the Sound City in Other Amps. I’d love to hear all about that one.

    I'm with you on that. I have a Bad Cat Unleash, has an on/off switch that is not dependable i need to fix, but i like having that extra asset to go much bigger than the SV20H can put out if needed. Plus, time based effects post amp really sounds great in that spot in the signal. It's sorta like having a wet/dry without the additional amp needed. The effects seem seperate from the amp tone. I used it in the past with my 50th Anniversary Marshalls.

    Those white ones look great.

    I like my Heritage G12H55hz in a single with my SV20H. I don't have this one yet but i have a good feeling about a Ruby Alnico for a permanent place in that open back 1x12.

    Also, for 5 watt use, i use my Heritage G12M20. 96db speaker which sounds very good and also cuts a little volume off.

    @copilot I'm not as fancy as you, but I get it. I have a simple attenuator (Weber) on my SV20H. Only way to fly! ;)

    I've come full circle- last week I got an SC20C- I really wanted to make the mini JCM800 work. It didn't (too much gain) so I got an ORI20C- nice amp but just not "it". Today I finally got what I've wanted all along, an SV20C.

    Not my first rodeo, two Blackstars, a tweed Bjr & a homemade 5F1 that I built during the covid shutdown last year. I've also owned a '65 BFDR (the real thing, not a reissue) a Twin and a Super Six from the 70's.

    This is by far the best amp I've ever owned! The Origin & Studio Classic are great amps; I just seem to bond with this one. Next will be a vol pot in the loop & of course the obligatory jump cable. I already have an SD1. One surprising revelation- my Helix LT sounds amazing with this amp (I know it's not supposed to), whatever.

    Thanks for all the previous posts, I've learned a lot from all of you.

    My Spark Boost arrived today. It is currently back in its box as I don't need it in my music room. But what a great clean boost with a few subtle extras if needed. It will defo be coming to music group with me post Covid. Perfect for a lead boost that does not change one's tone as so many Overdrive pedals do.

    Verdict: a very good purchase.

    I like the G12H30 Anniversary. Depends on the tone you're after, really. And even then, at the end of the day, you need to try it and see if it works for you.
