    The best amp I've had the pleasure of owning. Here is Joe and his tribute to Peter Green (RIP)

    Joe certainly sounds good.

    But the phrases higher up on the neck are 100% B.B. King -- no Peter Green in it.

    There's a lot of B.B. in PG's playing.

    PG mentioned how big of an influence B.B. was for him.

    I love the OD sounds in it. Very articulate and bold. I can get David Grissom type tones with it easily. If I was doing heavy metal I wouldn't use this, its more '70s tones.

    Sounds great, fat and articulate...JB doing BB whilst honoring PG on his K-SC.

    Seems like those KT88s give big round tone.

    GAT great looking rig! Too much for me to lug around, but I bet it sounds fantastic. What effects do you loop into the AmbiKab?

    Right now a Strymon El Capistan and. TC HOF. Also a Landau modded Arion Chorus for Leslie sounds. I run into a volume pedal from the send of the AmbiKab to control the volume. Works great.

    I haven’t gigged it yet. Can’t wait.

    Not sure how the Ambikab works in terms of signal chain?

    Does the SC output go dry to the 4X10 and a signal from the SC, impacted by the full output tone of the amp, get sent through the effects and then get amplified by the Ambikab? Or is it more complicated?

    Pretty much it. You get the tone of the amp into the AmbiKab. Volume changes don't impact the wet signal at all. If you hit a boost pedal into the SC the effects don't leap up in volume, stays the same. You can have as little or as much wet signal as you want via the effects return knob on the back. I use the volume pedal so I can control it in real time. Ingenious and simple.
