    I'm an internet person. All we do is waste time evaluating things that have next-to-zero real world significance.

    I think I have them priced at 1050 for a 1x12 in black mesa wrinkle tolex.

    Also, Evan, what did you think about clean headroom versus distortion? in your opinion, do these 15 watts work for most small club situations or is 30 watts mandatory?

    I am still going to get that 30 watter built soon, but I"m having to mod the chassis myself, plus I've still got paying customers that I need to get taken care of first.

    And, for sure, I've made it very clear that the first 5-10 amps out the door go out for as little as I can justify. I want reviews and I also want to build a reputation.

    I played it dimed and it's way-loud. But you lose the pristine clean headroom at that volume. It's as loud or louder than my Princeton. I'm not sure how much louder the 30 watt would be, but hopefully, it'll have more clean headroom (remember, to make an amp twice as loud as a 15 watt, you need to go to 150 watts, not 30 watts). Franklin would work for most club dates when your weren't playing alongside, say, Seymour...

    Work on the Evan-Rude is about to commence...

    I was only referring to making the 30 watt franklin after I take care of a few other things that guys like yourself have asked me to come up with. 30 watt Franklin is not something that I think you are wanting. You are in need of 6L6's, my good man.

    I played Franklin for a full hour yesterday at living room volume.

    Dang!

    And it looks so pretty in my living room sitting on the hardwood (cherry) floor...
