I love it, my neighbors hate me! :thumb:

Awesome man! I dig it.

Question for you: I have a Sunn Sonic I (basically 200S I think @ 40W), it does just fine with a bigass 1x12 Sunn cab I have. I want to switch to an Orange 2x12 and the Sceptre (which is 60w right?). How do you think it will do?

Is that an AOR 30 or 50? what'd you end up getting/asking for it?

What year or power tubes are in your Sonic? The Sceptre, Solarus, 190, and 200 all have extremely similar tone stacks with different power tubes. The Sceptre and Solarus just have the addition of the tremolo and reverb (post 70 with a mid boost switch).

Mine is roughly 60-80w(?) with 2 kt88s, with it cranked I keep up with my buddies AOR 100 without issues. 212 wouldn't be an issue. I plugged into an orange 412 once and it sounded damn fine. Keep open for an affordable Solarus, it's the same amp

My Sonic I is a '67. Thanks for the input. If I want more knobs on the amp and want to push a 2x12 a little bit more what would you recommend?

The Sceptre or Solarus if you're looking in the 60-80w range with 6550s or KT88s are great heads for tube. Concert or Betas are great for solid state. 2000s or model t if you got the cash and want something seriously big. Best thing I can recommend is play a ton of different amps/cab combinations. The more that's available the better... don't count out Bassman 100s or showmans, either silver or black face. They have a ton of character and you can find them everywhere. They are seriously great pedal heads and will do anything you need.

Been going through an amp acquisition phase lately (and selling off all sorts of other stuff to pay for it).

Got a few more on the way as well, but here's the latest two. Couldn't be more opposite, but I'm diggin em both.

The little combo was $99 shipped and is essentially a champ clone. :yay: I also have a $99 EL84 head incoming. Will post details on that when I have a change to check it out.

Here’s my Mesa with cabs. Sorry it took so damn long to actually post this. Changed the LED to match proper.

How does that Tube combo sound?

Really miss having tubes in my life.

I certainly was around 2002 or so. I need to start a three-piece again, because I prefer running my Acoustic rigs in conjunction with tube rigs. For Pyramids and In First Person, both, my setup was the 270 into the 406 on one side of the drums and an SVT into an 8x10 on the other. I doubt the other guitarist in my current band would be thrilled if I tried to add a 270/104 alongside my Quad Reverb, though.

Only now noticed you a member of In First Person. That band ripped.

Thanks! It feels like a lifetime ago, but I miss playing with those guys.
