    This one really needs its own thread. Looking forward to seeing how it turns out. :)

    Yeah the first prototype is Tags, I just tease him a little, but yeah he is doing all the up front work with Lou as well as using his Quinn.
    Another thread is a good idea.

    So I now have alnicos in both the cab for the KR12 (the Scumbacks) and the Two Rock cab (Celestion Cream Alnico).

    Here's what they sound like all together (first clip the is the Two Rock's clean channel and the second clip is the lead channel):

    I gotta come back here and give the KR12 some huge love, it’s in my studio being played and am loving it, I hadn’t played it in a while since I got it. This second time around it feels even better, still using my Sole-Mate Van Amps Reverb box, just too sweet across the board.

    How are you running it with inputs and NFB, EQ, etc? So many options!

    Plug guitar into normal 1, pedal in Gain input 2, volume 6.5, master 7, Treble 9.5, bass 4, middle 7.5, Presence 9, Feedback 7.5, 40W mode, American Standard Strat,
    This sounds very much on top, addictive tones, and the beauty is there are many other options to dial her in...
    I think I will leave mine with the SS Rect, was thinking to experiment with tube rect, but why mess with a great thing...

    That would be loud!

    One thing I realised on the weekend when messing with the KR12 and my Two Rock is that the KR12's channels are out of phase with each other (well at least the #1 inputs of each channel).

    I don’t think I’ve ever plugged the pedal into either gain input.

    I really want to know how this gain staging stuff actually works because there seems to be more going on than the “official” list

    I'd be interested too.

    Have you ever tried jumpering the channels like a 4 hole Marshall?

    It's funny that this thread started with the search for a tweed Twin... And ended up waiting for a Dumble inspired Louis Electric. While we wait, I bought a tweed Twin copy built for a local country musician by a local tech a few years back. It's still in LaCrosse and I have no time to get it, but Todd Wolfram tells me it sounds great. Tone report to follow at some point this summer.

    Yep, and I own 3 of the LP tweed twin and 2 HP tweed twins, I love them heavily, but am glad I discovered my KR12 cause it’s got the mojo...
