So when you go to pick it up you don't have to drive back if it's all jacked up or not what you expected ;)

the shipping was $28 for a package of ~50 lb., which i'm pretty sure is lower than UPS would charge the typical punter. i was surprised by the shipping charge, but i didn't want to look any more...it was difficult enough to find an AC15 in good condition at a reasonable price from a seller who would even ship. all the decently priced ones in good shape on Reverb (where the prices were lower than eBay) were local pickup only. this one is purportedly in "Excellent" condition and it was only $379 plus tax and shipping. i also went out of my way to find one with the Celestion speaker, not only because the greenbacks are my favorite but also because the Vox speaker in some AC15s is by reputation rather ice-picky, which is the exact opposite of what i'm looking for.

sadly, no. it's standard-issue black. actually, i really wanted a green one, but i couldn't afford to spend a $100+ premium just to get the right color of Tolex. i was totally function-oriented, otherwise i'd have gotten a Marshall Class 5...i find them much more attractive than the Vox, and when i played one back when they first came out i loved it. but it's only 5 watts as compared to 15 for the Vox. the Marshall is also a really simple amp, just a single overall volume and a T/M/B tone stack; the AC15 has two channels including Top Boost which i adore, a master volume, spring reverb, and that lovely Vox tremolo. even though i usually use pedals for reverb and trem, i figure that it can't hurt to have the amp effects as another voice.

:hug: Yeah, some of those limited editions look fantastic (especially the two-tone ones). :!!!:

listing was vague, just said wah. I will give more deets when it shows up!!!!

dumb thing - i've gone from being a person who doesn't like wah, to needing one for 1-2 songs in a set, to someone who owns 4 and thinks they're one of the most expressive effects you can have

i mean

Turned up today, says inside it's a coloursound wah clone but it has an inductor. I thought that coloursound wahs were inductorless, coz I had one from the 70s and it wasn't great - like a tone pot you controlled with your foot. This CF sounds wicked though, the knob on the side is a low-end or gain control. Rolled back you get a fairly standard funky quack, but maxed out you get a fat, synthy wub on the low end which is fucking gnarly. It was pretty cheap and I'm really pleased with it. :)*

I found a used Catalinbread Ge Karma Suture for a decent price. This will be Harmonic Percolator variant #8 in the current arsenal. My prior experience with this pedal was meh, but I have a feeling it will sound much better with current amplification options.

Nice! I had a colorsound reissue for a while and I loved it, best wah I ever had. Can't remember if I checked for an inductor or not.
