    Shhh! Neil might be lurking here, and if he remembers that he has 6L6s and bigger iron in his favorite amp he might freak out at the realization that he's been buying all of these other amps for no good reason.

    I think the more important question here is, what would it sound like with ALL 450 of them going at once? (Besides loud, I mean)

    Hahaha. My first thought exactly. I'd love to hear that. From a safe distance, of course. I do remember reading an interview with Neil many years ago where he talked about finding his number 1 amp in the music store. He said that he pluged in, cranked it up, played a chord and the whole room started vibrating. He said that he knew immediately that he'd found his amp.

    indeed. even if 450 is the correct number (and i doubt that we could ever know), what else should they be doing? realistically, most of them'd be in the hands of a small cluster of techie collectors who either cellar them or spend their odd free moments trying to recreate old neil young solos.

    stacks of good clones now for gigging musicians.

    Well Larry, that all sounds most daunting. At least, to me it does :D

    But it certainly is an interesting thing to consider. The researchers are welcome to inspect and test mine, if the research ever comes to fruition.

    Always enjoy your well considered, scholarly postings, Larry... definitely some interesting food for thought... :idea:
