Copped this from an old band mate today. Minty with foot switch and box. Sounds great so far! Going to record some clips this weekend.

Doesn't really get a whole lot better than that. It can get a whole lot more expensive, but not necessarily better. VTM120 and 6505.........Done. :lol:

Yeah, for real. Hard to beat these, and for $400 you won't beat it. I've owned a shit ton of high gain amps, and this one is the one that consistently sticks around.

I'm just surprised that a dude with the username Diocide has never owned a high gain head.

Have you had any high gain combos? :D

I’ve been an AOR/Orange/Marshall type guy forever. I guess I just always dug using pedals to push maps into high gain territory.

Had one a USA version for a little bit. Should not have sold it but did make a profit. Can always buy another.

I had a buddy come over with his new Balaguer Hyperion Semi Custom. I helped him build his first pedal (a SHO type boost) and I ran it all into my new amp. Sounds pretty Sick!

Is based on an SHO. It’s a simple boost I use when someone wants a boost option added onto an existing pedal. Sounds really good and super simple to build.
