So I vividly remember one Sunday when I had the rare thought "Wow, I Love my tone that I'm getting today" the natural drive from my amp was just perfect. There was even a moment when the song died down and my delay and reverb trials filled the space and I looked at the drummer (also a guitar player) and he shot a look at me like "whoa, YES!" I had my special edition cream Vox ac15 with creamback speaker. Running thru the top boost circuit. Stupidly i got complacent and traded it away... happens too often... Luckily I had traded it to a guy who I became friends with and have made multiple trades after that transaction. I checked in every few months to see if he still had the amp and he loved it so much he wouldn't part with it. And this guy is addicted to buying/selling/ trading gear and is a revolving door with all his gear. So I had too many guitars piling up (I build/mod guitars) so naturally I sent him a list of stuff I want to get rid of to try get my beloved amp back. He really played the "man, i really don't want to get rid of it" card so i made him a trade offer he couldn't refuse. I GOT MY AMP BACK!!! I was practicing for the setlist sunday and boy, to say I'm happy is an understatement. Right away I got that same tube driven natural OD and was just floored by the tone! Sometimes the ones that get away eventually find there way back home. A real prodigal story hehe! Anyways, Anybody else have a prodigal gear story? Or worse, "the one that got away" story? Blessings!
