    Got this today.......

    A new cab....Marshall straight...armed with greenbacks.

    Yes ive searched the secondhand market closer to a year to find one straight cab......and if i found one....they were to expensive in my opinion...many asked for 600€ for used one....and new costs closer 795€ over here in sweden

    Found plenty of angeled ones...

    So ended up buying a new one...

    Hope you got a strong roadie, friend!:p
    I totally understand you. There is nothing better than a couple of fullstacks making your bell-bottoms flap and restyling your haircut in "the beam of sound"! Haha.
    I used to play three fullstacks in the days when loyal buddies schlepped my stuff on and off stage and when soundguys where fine with it.
    Long gone...:(

    Btw.: I read that AC/DC are currently touring with 60 heads. Minimum 16 of them on stage. The rest are spares. Wow.

    There is a common misconception. A full-stack "plus" is not complete overkill in all cases.

    If you are working on a big stage (that means to me: A club with 1.000 plus visitors) and you do not have in-ear-monitoring, a low watt-amp will not do the job.
    If you are playing at "Malcom distortion levels" (that means "slight crunch" and not high-gain), a Marshall Super Lead or Super Bass head will deliver about 30 watts or so.
    So you really need to play over a couple of them to hear you against a drummer that is pounding his instrument like a blacksmith or -even worse (concerning carrying the instrument) a Hammmond B3 player.
