Hmm... so what did you guys replace it with? Are you happy with it?
From the clips I've heard I think it's a smokin little amp, but my main worry is that tonewise it seems like it would be a bit inflexible. Basically if you want gain you have to cut the tone stack out and left to using a cut switch and the knobs on your instrument worries me a bit.
OTOH the built-in attenuator, and size/weight are huge pluses, and used it's expensive but not _too_ expensive. Should I look at something like an Aiken Invader instead? I really want a nice clean and have no issue with tweed-like breakup.

I tried a Greenback which was better than the Kingpin. I even liked it better than a Blue (which won't fit without the magnet cover removed). I thought the Blue made it more harsh. I was running a GEC KT66 in the amp, and I liked the production Groove Tube better, believe it or not. I thought the GEC was a bit too bright in the Merc.
