    I just got email and looked on first two pages and didn't see a thread. If so, sorry, Mods can delete.

    terrible idea. would have been slightly better if they chose a better amp but still really overpriced.

    Booze for the blues.

    What's next? A custom Mesa Dual Rec. made from reclaimed casket wood for the death metal crowd?

    I already got a hemp cone speaker for my stoner rock amp.

    I think it's cool, but not for more than $995.00-$1,095.00 street price.
