    I Just Won A Signed 5150 III Amp Head From EVHgear!

    I remember entering the giveaway at EVHgear.com, but promptly forgot all about it 'cause I never win these things anyway. Well, got an email from Fender yesterday saying I'm the Grand Prize Winner and appears legit. I've corresponded with them and they said it'll ship later this week.

    I'm really excited, though not quite sure what I'm going to do with it yet. I don't have a cabinet for it, and I don't need 100 watts. But, it's signed by Eddie, so I won't be trading it.

    So I need to figure out what to do for a cab. It's just for home use so I'm considering the 2x12 just to have something to pair it with. I haven't had a stack setup before, so any advice you guys have to keep me from ruining the thing is appreciated.

    Congrats. And the 2x12 would be wonderful and they're both under warranty.

    Damn it. Evidently, neither did I.

    It's cool that someone from the Links actually won.
    CNN may think my opinion matters, but you shouldn't.

    Thanks guys, sorry you didn't win, but then, I suppose i'm not really THAT sorry,

    I guess the 2x12 is the way i'll probably go. As big a fan as I am, part of me wants to just store it and not use it. But i'm not really the type to store stuff away just to let it increase in value. Besides, I won't be pushing it hard anyway, so it might as well sit out and get some casual use.

    Congrats, nice score! You'll love the amp head, I really love mine. If you find the gain on channel 3 to be a bit too intense you should throw a 12AT7 in V4. I did that with mine and it cleaned up the gain structure of that channel very nicely.

    If you go for the 2x12 you should pull a pair of power tubes to make sure the 100 watt head with a 60 watt cab doesn't fry anything. I believe you're supposed to set the amp head's impedance for half of the cab's actual value when you pull 2 power tubes as well.

    So this is where I get confused (I'm also in full Google research-mode.) If I have no plans to crank it up (which I don't, perhaps not even halfway) are these types of things still a concern?
