I love mine. I’ve added the tone knob control (wiring isn’t my strong suit. Got it backwards. So it’s like the Proco Rat filter knob. But works) haha. I put a eminence legend speaker (same one the pro models have)

I never did snag an excelsior and now I’m afraid it may be a little late. At least I am all set on Gretas though. Somehow I managed to end up with four of them! 😜

I bought my second Greta as a backup. Later someone posted an add for two Gretas, and I put in a lowball bid on them for the hell of it, never thinking I would win.

Any chance you may want to let go of one of your Greta amps? Feel free to send me a message if so. I've been keeping an eye out for one for years and never see them in stores anymore.

I’ve never seen one in a store.

I know they were a limited run and have been out of production for a long time.

I’m terrible about selling off stuff, but I will put you on a list of potential buyers.

I wanted to have spare parts and am thinking about recabbing one of them into a cabinet with a larger speaker, but I will still have more than I really need.

Got mine today and really like it. Replaced the original MIC tubes with ElectroHarmonix 6v6s, a JJ 12AY7 in V1 and a GT 12AX7s in V2. Sounds really great. I like the sweet spot on the switch between the bright and dark slider setting, and my vt999 Tube Monster pedal turned down low makes for a nice eq/preamp; will also try a Fish n' Chips graphic eq.
