OK before i begin, you must play the below video on loop while reading this thread to get the full effect...
Now, any of you that have seen my previous thread about converting my old fallen angel combo into a head will probably appreciate that i really needed to upgrade my rig to something a little less embarrassing.
After 7 dying trees posted his NAD for his Randall RM100 it got me gassing for a Randall too, and while checking out some modded modules online came to the conclusion i liked the tones from the Framus Cobra mods the best - didnt sound quite as good as the real thing, but i was really digging it. I priced up a 100 watter with 3 modules (including the cobra module) and it worked out to be around the £6-700 mark. But after checking out some prices this wasn't that much less than getting the real thing, and the tones a real cobra has were similar to the modules i wanted to put in the randall anyway (fender clean, SLO/5150 tone).
I got a bonus from work and decided i really needed to retire the fallen angel, so I got in touch with the awesome Cassidy and here it is..
It came with an awesome but hefty flight case. seriously i could ride this thing down a mountain.
Black face (not racist).
Obligatory Ola angle
I haven't had a chance to properly crank it, but that will be happening wednesday at our next practice. now I've got the task of hunting around for a decent 2x12 and speakers to compliment it. I've got 2 nicely worn in v30's i've had for about 10 years, but have read a lot of users have bad experiences with these and the cobra. Real greenbacks are only 25watts a piece so i have to run a 4x12 with these which I dont have space for. So i'm thinking of going eminence Legends - either the V12's or GB128 greenback clones in a good 2x12. If anyone has any experiences - good, bad or otherwise - please feel free to chime in
and Howdy to any other Framus users.
MODs; feel free to change my user name forthwith to 'Cobra Commander'
Glad it went to an appreciative home, Adam, and a pleasure doing business with such a gentleman.
Your pics aren't working, btw. Are they in the Public folder on DB? You can only view them by opening the URL and viewing them in DB's photo viewer, which probably means they're not.
