I've had my eye on this one for a couple of months.First,a little history,,this one was born in1987 shortly after the Manley's moved their amplifier manfacture to California.This one has survived the years and comes to me,bone stock,even has the Russian made "coin base 5881's" original output tubes with the VTL brand on the tubes.I've only had her playing for a couple of hours,and I'll say that I just moved up a few rows,lol. The bass is tight,sweet,sweet mids,with good high's(maybe cause the tubes need to be replaced.eh?) One thing that struck me was the "tone" of the amp,,intriguing,kinda' pulls you in.Some folks might call it "dark". All in all I'm happy so far,,for a twenty year old amp,it's it outstanding condition. More later,as the story unfolds,,magic smoke,,, yes,, enjoy the pic's,, just had to share.
Be sure to look at Double "G's" vinyl thread in the FM.
