    more opinions anyone?

    I just keep hearing everywhere thay arent too good sounding and everyone recommends sed winged c's and ruby bstr\bht's.

    My tech said ruby's has badf consistancy issues though.

    Sovtek's are great. Go for them!

    I gotta say I'm a bit surprised... I was pretty much ready to tell my tech to get winged c's.. stay with the sovtek you say?

    Pretty sure I've got Sovtek's in my 20/20 and they've been fine for years. It's had pretty light use the last couple of years. No concerns with Sovtek's here though.
    We're all musicians, still searching for our roots.
