I just got back home from Swissvale music in Pittsburgh. A guy that bought a StangRay off them 2 years ago met me up there to let me try it out. After the very 1st note i was sold! That amp just blew me away!! Man is it LOUD!!! I tried a head with a 1x12 cab with a Vintage 30. I love that it's real simple and all about TONE!!! I didn't want to stop playing it, the tone was so addicting!!! Thanks to everyone who led me to this amp and gave me GREAT advice on which amp to get. This is the one!!! I've decided to get a 1x12 cab with a Gold in it though. It's gonna be a few months before i have the money to get it, but it'll be well worth the wait!

You will not be disappointed! The ray and a single gold - you ain't heard hardly anything yet! The Ray with an Alnico = "And the heavens opened, and the glorious tones of angels singing could be heard across all the lands...".
Skip the V30. I don't see that being a good match for the 'ray.
"Every note sounds like you're rattling a bunch of tin cans and old chicken bones around inside a plastic paint bucket."...Flealux ---------------- I have a very impressive set of 6-pack abs...but I keep a layer of fat on them so they don't get scratched or dented.
Right now, mostly a Tele or Tom Anderson through a Wreck Jr. Somewhere in Florida with Hammerhead Lincoln (umm .... not really, cause I don’t actually have a band of my own). Hear us on Spotify or iTunes! Also check out Elliott James’ albums “Do the Freddo” and “Have Much Energy”. You’ll hear a variety of vintage guitars, amps, and Z’s!
Yeah the Stang Ray defnitely has that "wow" factor. Unfortunately, my income tax check won't even cover half of the price of a new Stang Ray, so it looks like i'll be saving for a couple more months. It'll be worth it when i have it though!
