Hi, just snagged an Rx ES head as well as an Airbrake. Should get them this weekend. I'm in Sydney Australia. I know a great amp tech who could probably do the master vol mod easily, but is there anything specific about how Dr Z does it that I can specify? Also the Cut mod? Cheers Priddo

Congratulations on the acquisition of the RX ES. I love mine. Mine does not have the MV or the Cut Mod. I use an airbrake and can keep it within volume limitations on stage. I have used it with a 1x12 Convertible Cab, and with a 4x10 cab. Sounds excellent with either. David

This amp is great sounding with a gold in it. Tracii Guns ( formerly of GnR and LA Guns) used this combo for a while. Very loud amp! Wanna ask me how I know?? Several of us here have his combos that were replaced with Remedies.
Amp arrived. Used brake light with it successfully but I have an Airbrake coming soon. Incredible amp. I love it with my Gretsch Nashville, 52 Tele, ES 335 with Lollar Imperials. That's three distinct pickup/guitar configurations. It's great with a variety of pedals. My 2 X 10 cab has WGS G10C speakers which are loud and bright (loud bright amp to begin with). I wonder what Alnico Golds would be like to tame the highs and round things out?

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!

roscoenyc: I have never in my life experienced tube rattle. That said, I've only been playing electric guitar for 49 years.

capofirstfret: I've experienced tube rattle in two different amps that I've had. In both cases I bought the rubber rings from Eurotubes and it fixed it for me.

GuitarZ: Idiot! I wanted to put a little air on my Zoom H1's circuit board to clear out any residual Deoxit from spraying the input connector. Guess which can I picked up to spray. Yup! Not the air can.
