Well to defend John a little bit, he only paid $595 for the Laney.

To each his own... something like the Lionheart isn't going to do it for everyone. I've owned a ton of powerful, loud amps and that isn't practical or useful for me at this time. I want something small, yet rich in features that are of use to me and a great sound. Hopefully, I'll get that. If not, the quest for tone continues.

Hey I hope it fulfills your tone quest John.

It surely is a looker!

That is not out of line as long as it is the one.... If not... I'm sure you can get what you paid for it and that's the important part.

Yes... you have not achieved true enlightenment, grasshopper. You must renew the vows over and over until you get it right.

I do all the time! Laughing
