I've been drooling over Stadels for a while. I have my Ampeg Gemini VI which I love but is not perfect. It has vibrato instead of tremolo, and I blew the original speaker, and it doesn't sound as special with the modern remake. I bring a solid state Yamaha with me to gigs because the Ampeg has blown a power tube before, so it is not 100 percent reliable. One of my local shops has a solid state Standel that I'd like to check out. It is a 1970 model. I'm PERFECTLY okay with solid state, fwiw. The Standel has tremolo and reverb, two channels, it's a 2x12. The solid state Standel SHOULD be reliable enough to take to gigs without a backup. If they would take the Ampeg with original and replacement speaker plus the Yamaha, I'd consider making the trade. Am I crazy?
