Thanks. Yep, full scale (can't stand short scale, yuck). Korina is quite a bit like mahogany, only better - lighter, a bit brighter, and generally awesome.

Ha. If I'd had known you were he would have come up and say Hi. I don't really like rocking up unanounced, but I could have droped that cab off he he :lol:

The sound in general was really great, IMHO... apart from the chick singers vocals. They were lost deep in the mix.
Bass wise terrific, you seemed to cut through a bit better than Gary's bass when he played.
Good drum sound FOH too.

Cheers! Yeah, I thought it cut well (jazz + MM will do that!) and the levels seemed good overall - I was too busy drooling over this at the workshop to make GHB's sound check :oops: so it was a pleasant surprise to hear it afterwards.

Yes, plenty of knobs - any more and I'd be confused, but I find this method much easier than having push/pull pots. Controls are: blend/volume/bass/mid/treble.

Thanks. GHB party was great - everyone played really, really well, and the overall sound was great. I was knackered waiting for the night to finish (helping with packup) but I certainly enjoyed the music.

Yeah, the Mysterons are always fun to watch. Big Boy Corban's one of my favourite guitarists. And nice work Zero!
