Ply her with fine wines and Belgian chocolates, as per Swiss Toni of The Fast Show.

And I suspect the new hybrids are even quieter - but that would be a question for @agedhorse to confirm. If they are, would you not be a little tempted by the new Mesa TT-800?

Yes, the fans all in the Subway amps are MUCH quieter, almost silent.

That’s good news indeed.

I watched a couple of demos of the TT800 and thought that had potential.

Also thinking about the new GK amps, but also maybe an Ampeg. I’ve not had a PF series amp.

Or maybe an Ashdown. 
 

Too much choice!

My ABM 600 sounds awesome through the super twin. So does my RM800.  Ashdown and Barefaced seem to be a very good match....

I saw you are selling your DG. Do you find the Ashdown a better choice for the cab?

No, the Darkglass is superb through the Super Twin,  it’s just that the sound in my head Is an Ashdown type of sound rather than DG and tonally the two amps are quite different. The great thing about the cab is that it can do clear with the DG without being too toppy or it can do warm low middy with the Ashdown,  I just love that cab.

I was just wondering. I really like my DG but other amps do the warm clean thing better. The DG is of course my favourite for drive sounds. My Mark Bass is quite warm sounding but I'm also wondering about a big iron amp like an ABM.

 

 

I've been using my helix with High and Low cuts at 30Hz and 4Khz to mimic the Super Twin freq range and see what sounds I can get.

As the ST is supposed to be a very accurate cab I haven't been using an IR at all - just into a studio monitor and using preamp models, a parametric EQ and a compressor.

Will be interesting to compare it with the ST when it arrives this week. I don't actually own any physical amps of the models in the Helix which is why I was using the ParaEQ to get as close as possible to the EQ centres on my Mark Bass.

 

It probably won't sound anything like it at all! :D But I've enjoyed doing it!

I'm guessing your MB amp will sound a treat with the ST! Combine with Helix (or a VTDI) for drive and you're then completely sorted?

Well the shipping has been updated for tomorrow now, so I'm trying to get ahead on work on the off chance I can skive half a day.

I've also bought a new score for me and the kids to play. Feels right to have a family jam of something new when a new bit of kit is coming.
