    I love the addition of the 2x12 extension cab to my AST. It has G12M greenbacks and sounds terrific!

    Yes very cool!

    As I mentioned I'm selling my AST but I'll have some interesting news soon.

    Very nice.
    I'm thinking of picking up one of Michael's 2x12's.
    Grant, are you back already? :D
    Can't wait to see/hear what you're getting!

    Hey Marko,

    Yeah I'm back already. 2 weeks felt like only a few days it was over so fast.

    I can't wait to tell you guys about what I have on order but I've got to check whether I'm allowed.

    I bet that sounds great. The only thing that may be better is a pair of ASTs :D

    MY AST Pro has just been delivered.

    I'll have a good listen on the weekend and report back.

    Outstanding! Lately I have gone back to using the amp as a 1x12 combo without the extension cab. It sounds so good with both configurations - I can't decide what I like best!

    I'm really looking forward to trying the amp through both the greenbacks in my '93 AC30 reissue and the Alnico Blue/G12H30 in my 65 London as well as through the UK G12H Heritage speaker

    That just looks so tasty!

    I like the ex cab. Looks terrific and makes excellent sense. It must relinquish some of that reedy/tweedy deluxe vibe and get mo' Marshall-esque, no?

    Swart trem is insanely beautiful, makes it damn hard to not want to use it on everything.

    Do you think you'll be able to bring the swart and cab to the MPLS amp clinic? I hope so.

    The amp clinic has been rescheduled for Sunday June 29th. It begins at 5:00 pm.

    I would absolutely love to, but I cannot make it. :(

    Harry Straub lives very close to me. I could drop if off with Harry to bring if he is ok with it and if you guys promise to be gentle with it. :)

    Looks like Harry and I will be able to work this out. I believe the Swart and cab will be there!
