Back in May I was lucky enough to buy Therapy #001 from benttop. I played it for a couple of weeks, rolling V-1 tubes and trying different cabs and speakers through different guitars, then I moved on to my other amps. I have a system of rotating through my amps and guitars so that everything gets played pretty equally. Well, it's now January and I finally circled back around to the Therapy this AM and realized (again) what a wonderful amp this is. Played some of my jazz standards and it sounded great but the real eye opener was Over the Hills and Far Away with the following setup:
Therapy w 5751 in V-1 => Master 2:00, B\M\T straight up, Vol 10:00 => Flint for a touch of verb and trem => 2x12 cab with Gold and C-Rex => 97 Nocaster in middle position. Except for my playing, this was as good as it gets for me tone-wise. I just had to post and include a bad cell phone picture. Still not sure if the Therapy will ever replace the Z-28 as my favorite Z, but this AM certainly closed the gap a bit.

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."
