    I think my Dual Showman Reverb head is somewhere between the Sun & a white dwarf star...

    I remember seeing this image in the Les Paul Forum a few years ago:

    Although based on the weight my '83 Custom, it wasn't just early '70s LPCs that were serious boat anchors.

    The Ampeg 8x10 bass amp cab made a refrigerator seem light ...

    My bass player had one ...

    My back still hurts...

    My 1980 Boogie MKIIA 100W Rev. Eq. (S/N° 4915) in hardwood cab is a quasar :

    It reaches 36.5kg in working order, and 43.5kg in its lightweight flycase...

    The hardwood cab itself, empty (no speaker,no reverb tank) is already over 12kg...

    I once shipped a 70’s SVT to Germany. I could have paid for his plane ticket and a cab ride to my house, gone out to a nice dinner, and told him to figure it out. Still would have been cheaper.

    David, do you remember a band that played Juanita’s circa April 1996 called “Sweetvine”? They were out of California.

    They played Memphis the night before, as was the custom, and got up the next morning to find that their trailer had been broken into and all of their gear stolen, including the B3.

    I got in touch with the keyboard player years later (Gary Frank Skaggs), and struck up a friendship with him. He said that they got a call a few weeks later from a farmer in rural Arkansas that discovered the B3 in the middle of his field... somewhere in Forrest City area. He flew back, got the B3, and the Leslie cab, and drove it all back to California. He said the cabinet was beat up horribly, but he plugged it in and everything worked fine.

    So that’s basically a Princeton preamp with a Tweed Bassman power section, and a 12” Altec.. right? I mean, with some other Randall Smith mojo in there too.

    SVT and a matching 8x10 cab in road cases -- though my Bad Cat Black Cat 30 seems to have a ferrocement enclosure. Feels like it's bolted to the floor at closing time.

    I think this thing is between thirteen and fourteen pounds, it's an effing brute. I never play it....or dare put in on a wall hanger either.

    But it looks cool, especially in a vintage ad.

    In 1970 it was a Tony Iommi riff. Happy days.
