Thread resurrection!

The last gig my band had was a disaster because we decided not to bring our own amps (to save our backs and be able to have a few drinks). I ended up playing a beat up old Hagström solid state amp that would just randomly double the volume or go silent or start crackling. Total shit show. So when I came across a Mini 101 Head on a Halloween sale I couldn't resist.

I've only spent a few hours with it, but I have to say I'm pretty impressed. It sounds a lot better than all the Youtube demos suggest. The controls are a bit weird, but they do allow you to dial in good sounding approximations of both a blackface Fender and a cranked JTM45, and a bunch of other good sounding stuff inbetween.

Now I'm going to have to convince my bandmates to get Quilters too, we'll never need a designated driver again! ;D

I bought a Microblock 45 out of curiosity. I use it at rehearsals and carry it along in my gig bag for a spare, and have used it for a couple of small gigs. For the price of a pedal, IMO it's a good investment.
