    I agree with you Walter. SRO speaks are something else.

    matsickma, I don't need a logo. I was seeing if you needed a logo. Good to know you have a stock of them, though.

    EV made some killer speakers over the years. They had a 12 inch with a 4" voice coil that could handle a lot of power. If I recall correctly Mesa Boogie combo's would have a single EV 12 and handle 100 W rms. Twenty years ago that was quite a feat. Maybe it still is respectable.

    that is the exact OG Mikey Houser (RIP) rig, together with the Soldano SLO 100, Soldano Surf Box, Boss DD Pedal, Ernie Ball volume pedal and 1990 Fender Telecaster *Deluxe Plus...and yes, it's still respectable, considering it is still the best tone I have ever heard, by far.

    Mikey said he had played every brand amp, and the Soldano was the only keeper. But I truly believe Mikey would have liked Guild amps, if he ever got the chance to play one. I found my own tone, searching for his!

    Never heard a Soldano but based in the number if preamp tubes I assumed it was a very saturated tone. In my experience that tone would be the opposite of that if a Guild amp with the exception of a punched Maverick or punched Thunder 1. A punched Maverick reminds me of a Marshall or maybe a HiWatt at a 30 Watt instead of 100 Watts.

    I have had 5 or 6 Maverick's of both the chrome /red and pink/red control panel. Most sounded great with the 7592A output tubes.

    Please excuse the misspelling. Damn keyboard on the phone often mistakes "i" for "o" and "a" for "s" and vice versa!
