Well, I have a Dr. Z again. Over the years they've come and gone and come again (I've had 3 Ghias, 2 or 3 maz Jr's, a Z28, a monza for a very short time and a cure also for a very short time). Today I traded one of my tweeds for an Antidote head and a killer Morgan custom cab with 1x12(Weber Ceramic) and 1X10 (Weber alnico). Sounds awesome with the Les Paul. It does have some intermittent noises (scratchy/static type sounds that come and go away pretty quickly). I'm assuming tubes and will be retubing soon. If that sounds like a bigger problem to you I'd love to hear about it.
Any advice on tube selection for this beast? I'll probably be plunking down the cash for an airbrake too.
Pretty sure the cab was a custom order. I couldn't find anything on their site matching this. So far, a killer combination. Very full and punchy but still warm and not harsh at all. I don't know much about those speakers but I know Webers are really good.

This thing is amazing. Just great tone no matter what the setting. Had to replace a preamp tube, which fixed the intermittent noises. Silent now. I am going to try to get a brake lite and see if I can get the volume down a bit with a little grit. Very cool rig.
I love my Antidote. When I think about selling it for something more practical volume wise, I listen to it and change my mind. The Airbrake is always on. It's my #1 amp at church and most gigs. Congrats.
