I hear ya. I have a blackface Bandmaster head and a 2x12 in the basement that I haven't played for years. I doubt I'll have the need for it in the future.

Did you consign at m&m's?

Looks like both may have already sold. :ph34r:

I got rid of a bunch of 100w and 50w Marshall JMP heads and two twin reverbs (72 & 74) a few years ago.

I kept my '76 Deluxe Reverb that I did a few simple and reversible mods to. It's a great amp but still too loud for home use.
I also have a rare Cage Corsa head and matching 2x12 cabinet. It's a terrific amp but I never really use it. I'm hoping to have a recording studio with my musical partner down the road where I can have everything put to use. Otherwise it's a hard amp to sell cuz nobody is familiar with it. Cage is one of the early boutique amp companies from the mid 90s.

At home I record direct but if I want to play out loud, I have a Roland Cube 60 which actually sounds amazing and is good with pedals.

Awesome! You going to buy any new gear with the proceeds?

That's the plan, though it will probably require a little more fund raising to get what I want.

He's such a nice guy. He built me the amp that replaced that one. At home I use a Fender Princeton. I took it to his place for him to look it over and it turned out he had worked on that exact amp.
