So... I traded a guitar for this head and cab. As I've previously stated, I'm still buying a mini head in May or so. Probably the JCA22H. This doesn't change that plan.
But I pulled the trigger on this and got head and cab for what amounts to $350 in guitar trade. This is my first head/cab.
The head is a Peavey Vypyr 120 tube modeling amp. The cab is an older Crate with G12 50's in it. Everything seems to work just fine.
I think I'll have someone look at the wiring in the cab, just because the previous owner was in there and re-wired it for one jack 8ohm. I'm not sure what it's supposed to be or what the options are there. Also, the cab is filthy. I'll have to work on that as well.
Previous owner was using an instrument cable instead of a speaker cable. I bought a decent speaker cable on the way home, thanks to you guys on this forum. I'd have never known it was a problem without reading your posts.
The controls on the head are a little confusing, but I downloaded the owners manual and I'll look it over in the next few days. Between amps, effects, stomp pedals, etc., it's fairly daunting.
Also going to look around for a used Sanpera II pedal.
Overall, I'm pleased and I plan on doing a hell of a lot of experimenting. I've only played with it for a couple hours.
Congrats, hope it sounds good
