    Tonker Lite loaded in the Avatar=26 lbs. Burriss=14 lbs. Sounds great!

    My back would really like that, and so would my ears

    That is damn interesting! Lots of possibilities. What did it set you back if you don't mind me asking?

    Screw that I want a Matchless DC-30. I heard they sound better with EV's, now that would be livin.

    I stuck a 18 watt Lite II in between using the Burriss as a stand alone reverb/tremolo unit. Still very light and portable but ALOT louder.

    Probably not loud enough for the guy lusting after the Matchless though ;-)

    The Burriss was about $1200 from Indoor Storm. I got the Tonker Lite here on The Gear Page for $60 and the cab from Avatar on eBay for about $155.

    How are you liking that Bluesman, tone wise? Fascinating amp, and small enough to throw in an overhead bag for a fly-in gig. If it sounds great, it's a huge winner.

    Now you're talking. Be funny if we all find out later on that the lighter the rig, the better it sounds.

    I've been thinking about making an all balsa wood 1 X 12 cabinet with just this thought in mind! I found an online vendor with slabs of it in different hardnesses.

    This is kinda small (but rather big tone). The "cab" is an old gutted Crate 1X12 combo that now has a Scumback H75.

    Eric at Viking Amps has a very cool ultra light amp called the Pillager
    receiving some well deserved attention.

    Back?...not good.

    That's why I just switched to using a Cube 60 with a Zendrive and a Twilight Zone for rehearsals. Fortunately my Sig:X is on wheels for gigs.

    Nice rig though.

    I'm old, and I am foolish enough to carry around two 2X12 cabs and two heads. The 27 yr old who was helping with our equipment now has a bad back and can't anymore!

    Holy Cow!
    I had to hit the "quote" button. That is one gorgeous set up (also dig the Marshall with Crate conv.) Can you give us some input regarding the Burris?
    Thank You

    Start out light early and double team items that are border line heavy.
    Acting Macho at a young age can bring dire consequences.
    Work smarter not harder.
