    im contemplating looking into a tubemeister 5W as they are dropping in price for clearance. Anyone have experience with one?

    Also contemplating renting a Tubmeister 18 and a VoxAC15 and seeing what I prefer.....

    I ended up renting an AC15 to try out for a week. Planned on picking up a tubemeister and a cab too, but local L&M couldn’t locate theirs. Was planning on going to slightly less local L&M and rent them tomorrow, but the AC15 sounds so good with the 5420 I may not bother.....

    Vox and Gretsch have a long a fruitful history together. :)

    I rented the Hughes today as well. Yesterday I was blown away by the Vox and how well everything sounded. Today, even more so as the Hughes just doesn’t sound anywhere near as sweet.

    I get to play around with it for the week though....

    The Vox is a great amp. While you are in test mode try a Fender Princeton
