    I can only speak for myself when I say you really don't wanna hear how I'm playing at this point in time. It's really no bueno. The amp is champion but my playing is an insult to low rent hobbyists right now!

    Hopefully @willie k can help out when his arrives.

    Funny you should say that. I’ve been in a playing rut for a while and am hoping this will get me out of it. I feel quite sure I am equally unworthy, but I’ll post some noodling as soon as I can. It may not be played all that well, but it should sound fantastic. Don’t sell yourself short. We want clips!

    BTW, am picking up a Mesa Thiele cab today for the EV speaker I’ve had stashed for this very amp.

    getting a tone and playing technically are two different things which do not necessarily overlap. a big peeve of mine is when people post gear clips with “show offish” playing. i want to hear the equipment! you too, @j.s.tonehound!

    Nothing worse than an amp demo where the guy says “I’m running through stacked tube screamers and a compressor...” FFS! Let’s hear the AMP, not your entire pedalboard! My demo will be just my LP Special and the amp. Jim says he’ll ship it Wednesday, so it will take a minute. Now what about the other eight Line amps? Let’s hear them!

    Funny how that happens. I couldn't say I definitely played better when I was a kid with a 1 tonne LP Custom and a Marshall Valvestate but I was certainly playing more comfortably! I guess that's the trade for working all hours to afford the nice things.

    For the cab, I tried to get a custom Zilla for mine but I wasn't too enamoured with the correspondence and went with a Blu FatCab. Not exactly an expert but it'll serve me very well!

    Hello gents,
    just to keep this thread "fresh" I thought I post a pic of the Line amps in my Jim Kelley collection. There is a 1x12" combo on the left side, a rare 2x10" combo on the right side and the head with a vintage 2x12" cab with Pre Rola greenbacks. Sorry, these are not from the new run but nevertheless they sound awesome ;).
    Hope you still like it, cweckii

    Yeah, so not the BEST clips, but here you are, one clean and one crunchy. Better ones to follow, I hope:
