A few weeks ago I picked up a monza mv 1x10 on the B&S from Mark. (basement enthusiast) by the way, Mark is a great guy to deal with. great communication, packs and ships excellent, and way more than fair on prices. (thank you again very much Mark) I owned a monza head in the recent past, (along with 2 ghia's and 2 maz jr's) and sold it to fund another gear acquisition, but deep down missed it. my guitar partner uses a monza head also. (thanks Lee) now, I have ALWAYS been a head and cab guy. I have played through a marshall 1965 4x10 for the last 7-8 yrs, and for 25 years before that, played through a early 70's marshall 4x12. a 2x12 is about the smallest i could ever tolerate playing through. ( I just love feeling air move behind me) so when Mark's 1x10 monza came up i was tempted, but just couldn't imagine how a 1x10 would impress me, or even be bearable, but i said "what the flip" and took a chance. now granted, Mark changed the speaker to a eminence ramrod, but i am shocked at what a big sound this can get in a 1x10 configuration. if someone would of told me this beforehand, I would have said "your nuts". NEVER would i have imagined it. when I first saw the Doc putting things out in 1x10's back when, I thought, "this will never fly"! (apologies Doc) so anyone who feels the same way as I did about these 1x10's, do yourself a favor and check them out. truly eye opening! PS- and it sounds even better hooked up with my 4x10! (lol)

Definitely glad you're liking it, Martin! It's a formidable amp, for sure... Since Doc is putting out SO MANY good amps, it's easy for one or two of them to get lost in the shuffle. I don't think he would've put out a 1x10 if he didn't believe it sounded good--and it does!

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."
