..once it's broke in. I got it used so I figured it was as good as it's gonna get. I tried it in a Valveking 1x12 and it sounded so bland. I tried other speakers I had lying around and decided to give the ST another chance. Still sounded bland but after some more time on it it has gotten nicely fat and chimey at the same time. It's really a smooth speaker also. Made the lead boost on the VK much more tolerable. Seems like I found a speaker that'll make Me keep the VK after all. Of course I'll still get a Tone King or a Carr someday!
