Got my amp from Todd today. BTW, this guy is great to deal with, very communicative, and ships well-packed!
Funny how the 8 sounds similar but not quite like the 18 - it has its own voice. From what I'd read on these forums, I questioned whether I'd like the Blue; I like a bit more bass. But no, this is a definite upgrade from the 70th Anniversary G12H30!
I was comparing to my '69 Princeton Reverb, as I was starting to wonder if I was ok with just using that. Hard to compare...love the trmolo on the PR, but can buy a pedal for that. Quite a difference between the 10" of the PR and the 12" of the 8. The wife was listning while I was comparing and said she thought the 8 had more presence. Hmmm, good ear.
Anyway, a side bonus is that the 8 fits on my Atlas Spider amp stand perfectly! And looks great to boot. ;D

How great it would be, in addition to all of the wonderful things you're already known for, to have a reputation as a good person. But how overshadowing of all your talents will a bad reputation be! Therefore, choose your words wisely and seek to be kind.
GuitarZ: Ugh! Dropped small nut while installing new outside lamp. Thought I saw where it landed. Couldn't find it. Moved the car & such. Engineering mind said, drop another (after ~hour). Bang! Within 5 seconds. Nut found! Yea! Wife Impressed!

GuitarZ: Bells & Whistles-New Cars. A year with our Subaru Outback, finally realized doors have to be unlocked for inside rear hatch button to work. Dang! I need that feature for social distancing. Looked like an idiot pulling up & jumping out to manually open.

GuitarZ: Best Pandemic Comment - Delivery guy shows up. As we're social distancing, I look at myself in brown loafers, black socks, gym shorts, t-shirt and say "I realize this is not my best look". His response "You can wear whatever you want to the apocalypse."
