Newest addition. Such a pretty clean sound to start with that the gross and evil sounds are that much better.

I just upgraded my stereo amp setup from this finicky 90's Crate to this Imperial. Good god it's :!!!: sounding

Went to go check it out and the seller turned out to be a nice fella from MW.

Yeah, I'd say that's an upgrade! Also I'd looooove to have a Sportsman to go with my Rambler.

This 115LB with EVM15 I snagged from the GC site just showed up, completes my '80s metal box mini-stack with the 408LGS. Now I just need to find a 2100sel head!

Yeah, they've always had a really particular vibe going. The ones with the vaporwave logos (as my student calls them) like that are crazy values, too. They usually have legit Celestion/EV/etc OEM drivers inside but go for next to nothing. I paid ~$100 shipped for that 1x15 and $90 for the 4x8.

Yes I was stalking the Sportsman as well before I got the Imperial. :snax:

I've posted these a few times, but I finally got a chance to see all 4 in the same room. Usually one is at home, another at the rehearsal space, the third with my repair guy, and a fourth shunned in a corner for being naughty. All in varying rotation, depending on their mood.

Speaking of that, the SVT-II crapped out again tonight. Fun while it lasted, alas. Anyhow, when functioning, I run any of them through an Ampeg 8x10" or Bergantino 4x12" cab. I used to go through a pair of Bag End 1x12" cabs but kept blowing speakers. GEE I WONDER WHY. :omg:

Damn dude, for real?!

How does the 4x8 pair with the 1x15? That's a set up I always wanted to try, but never made it happen.

With the EV and small ported box, it's a fairly tight and balanced 15" that isn't really performing sub duties (it only goes down to 50hz in a TL606, and this box is much smaller), so it hangs surprisingly well with the super fast 8"s. I think I want to move it to the top, though, to see if its midrange will hit the ear a little better.

So my setup is a bit weird. It's two 9.5" rack preamps I built running into a stereo power amp (QSC RMX1450) into two cabs - a Blackstar Artisan 2x12 with V30's and a Peavey Black Widow 1x15. The Peavey sounds a bit muffled to me so I might get something different at some point.
The two preamps are emulations of a Model-T and a Marshall Super Lead. This is an all solid state setup. Housed in a custom 3u rack case built by Zilla cabs.

This is killer looking,

Did you build the preamps from a kit?

I used to run something similar but I ran a preamp into a kustom PA head, yours looks much cooler and more reliable.

Not a kit per-say. It was my own concept of execution, but the circuit boards are a GuitarPCB Sunn-T (with a JFET buffer before the volume pot), and a Runoffgroove Thunderbird on a PCB by 1776 effects. I bought the components and populated them myself. They're meant to be built in regular pedal enclosures but I wanted them in a rack configuration. I guess they're not proper 'preamps' as the output impedance isn't exactly what you'd get from a 'real' one but they sound great regardless.
The cases I bought are from a UK company called Allmetalparts.co.uk. They do this range of 'half rack' cases in various sizes and configurations. I just bought two of the most basic ones with blank panels, marked out the holes I needed, and took them to a metal workshop where they drilled the holes for me. Wired them both up in a day and then gigged it the next night.
