I had mine cranked up yesterday - man I do like that amp! A little expensive but you sure don't see them up for sale often! Seth has his for sale for $1250 on the BST section. I've never seen 2 for sale at the same time! Ryan, are you looking?
That's my old Delta on eBay! I wish I never had to get rid of it. I bought it 'brand new' from a boutique shop in San Fran two years ago... I always thought of it as 'the last new Delta'. Whoever ends up with that one is going to be a happy camper!

I just bought Seth's Delta 88.
Once upon a time I had several Z amps but, thanks to a couple of health issues and a lack of sick days, had to sell nearly all of my gear to get me through. Now that all that's behind me, it's time to get 'em back: Seth's Delta 88, and a few weeks ago I bought a KT45 and 1x12 cab from Elite Music Sales.
Karma to you for shopping at Elite AND buying my 2 favorite Z amps. When the venue is big enough to let me do it, I run the KT and the Delta together. TONE!!!!!
Thanks, Shannon. What a monster of an amp! Currently, I only have a Z 1x12 with a Vintage 30, so I have to be careful about cranking it up without an attenuator. I also just bought an Aracom attenuator, so I can enjoy the 88 in ( almost ) all its glory, but I would like to hear it wide open, unattenuated through a 4x12.
I'd also like to experiment with different tubes ... anyone have some suggestions? On ebay, there is currently a pair of '60s Genalex Gold Lion KT88s in NOS condition, but the bidding is now up to over $500.00 ... too rich for my blood. For current production stuff, Doug's Tubes seems to like the reissue Gold Lions or the Penta ( Shuguang? ) KT88s.
For the preamp tubes ( both EF86 and 12ax7 ), have any of you tried NOS stuff like Dario Miniwatt, Mullard, Valvo, etc? If so, what did you think?
Jaguarguy (Mike): Hey Gary - Joe Walsh used a G12 65 in his Galaxie and it sounds great!

GuitarZ: So, I cranked up the privacy protection on my browsers, facebook, etc. I have to say I miss the music ads and such. I really don't need ads for watches and other random stuff. Maybe the internet knowing me isn't such a bad thing.

GuitarZ: I'm okay with the AARP letters. You're still living and breathing? What the heck am I to think when a funeral home sends me a free consultation offer? Ouch!

The Bad Poodle: I bought airline tickets online... now every few days i get emails that read "Your trip is almost here but aren't you forgetting something?? You don't have trip insurance!" and i'm thinking..."is there something i should know about your plane maintenance?"

GuitarZ: Reminds me of buying my Honda. When they tried to sell me the maintenance package, I said "Is your car not reliable?" Long story short my wife teamed up with the sales lady to buy the maint package. Never again!
