    Ouch, not again, these are tempting...I have always thought of of Champagne as being the summit of cool. After great support I did acquire one, and it always draws attention. I feel that it is a timeless treasure.

    Now that I see the turquoise, I may feel that the mountain just got higher.

    Filtertrons with a tone knob... I wonder how that sounds?? I just can't do the B7.

    I believe that they are Broadtrons.

    I've only seen them on the Woodwind Brasswind site:

    Now it looks like they're gone(!?)

    Love the colors but not the gold hardware... And I'm usually a gold hardware guy...

    They are, but tone knobs work fine with Filtertrons too. My PE Jet has that set up and it’s great. Has a B7 too, and that also works fine.
