This amp was my main recording rig for the 500$fine recordings, driven by a Fender Performer head, used with my Fender SRV Strat, and a Boss Metalzone and Distortion + pedal, with occasional appearances by the DOD Digital Delay pedal

This was a birthday or christmas present from my folks around 1994, along with the Fender Performer 1000 head.

It was your typical 4×12 cab, but instead of Tolex, was covered in carpet. It was loaded with Eminence speakers.

After years of use, and a basement flood, I ended up removing the carpet and running it bare for a while.

In 2004, I loaded it up with Weber Silver Bell ceramic speakers, which sounded awesome with a Fender Bassman
