    I played a BB 007 today, and was intrigued. I’m looking for a small footprint tube amp, for literal bedroom playing. My Blackstar Artist 15 stays in the living room, but I like the tone and size of the BB. My wife can watch tv, while I sequester myself in the bedroom.
    I thought it sounded great with the stock celestion 10-30, but I found a FSR model online that comes in a lacquered tweed, with a celestion G10 greenback. Anyone own one, or played both?
    Thanks!

    I have an original one. Had it for 3 maybe 4 years now. I really like it. I use it at home. It can get loud when you want it to, but can also be quiet enough to practice with my roommate home and not bother him.
    I have though about a speaker swap, but haven’t done it.
    I do have to replace the power tube once a year or so. I don’t know if that is normal or not for an EL84 tube amp

    Just had this conversation with the friend I traded my 007 to. First off in all of my experience-which goes back to early seventies- the 007 speaker is the most dramatic in its breaking in of any I have heard. Once broken in it is a very good speaker for the amp. I am not married to green backs- but have several- one in a princeton and one in a marshall class 5-so I like them. My buddy is married to green backs and has considered one for the 007- but it sounds so good he questions it being worth the effort.
