OK, as promised, I finally have a NAD!!! Some may find the following photo sequence & story somewhat disturbing, but oh well. It all started when this off-branded box showed up on my porch.



It looked harmless enough, so I opened it.......



Imagine my surprise when a bubble wrap Jabba the Hutt springs from the box!!
I moved in for a closer look........



The slimy beast had my new amp in its mouth!!

As I reached to try & extract my prize, the filthy beast lunged at me, & I barely escaped with my life (you know how dangerous bubble wrap can be!



I finally managed to wrest the amp from the savage bubble-lined jaws of death!! Twas a struggle of unimaginable epic proportions.



Once I had vanquished the beast, I came to realize that this may not be my amp. In fact, it may not even be an amp at all!!!

An ampostor !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
The amp had been removed, & the beautiful housing converted to a mere cab!!



I'm sure many of you are as pissed off as I was by this revolting turn of events, but there was a silver lining to the story. Also in the packing box was a 2nd item that eluded the clutches of Jabba the Bubble-Hutt!!


Ahhhhhhh, what's this???????????/




A 1979 Music Man RD50 112??? In BLONDE???? SWEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEET!!!
This thing totally rips. Weighs 30 lb, 50W through 2 6L6s, & responds better to attenuation than any amp I've ever heard. Lush reverb, 2 channels. It's my new gig amp!!
Here it is sitting with part of the family, fitting in quite well....



Ahhh, life is gooood!

Happy NAD! Haven't heard one of those amps myself, but knowing you I'd say it's pretty tastey.
My name is Tom, feel free to use it.

I took a pic of myself, cut a hole in the face and stuck my knob through so i could see what I'd look like if I got bitten by a radioactive elephant.

Dude... That picture sequence is one for the ages. That's the first retarded funny thing I've read on here in a while that had actually laughing out loud.

I'll have to put the Classic T models on my to-try list. Shame the finish options there are Anachronism Gold, Nuclear Waste and Aged Clown, because in principle the plaintop is right up my alley.

Hey, Alf! Sorry, but I couldn't resist borrowing your ID for that

The cab is a Soldano Astroverb that someone took the amp out of, & put in a nice V30 speaker. I got it for $150 last year, but I knew no one here really knew about it, so it would work as a faux new amp . Thanks to all who endured that!!

I can't wait to try re-amping this thing, but it doesn't like running WFO for extended periods of time. It actually shut off audio on me last night, & I thought it blew the OT, but after cooling down for about 10 min, it works fine again. I'm just going to run a fan on it when using the Hot Plate. I was really worried for a while though, because it's so old!

You should put an overdrive in front of her and tighten it up!

Again, real nice Randy. I can see the eyes on the bubble wrap now. God Damn that is some funny sh*t!. We were out at a bar Friday night and (I was on my Blackberry) when I saw that WTF is a Cab thing I spit beer all over the table. Wow. Just Wow.

I almost spit beer when I read this!

Thanks, goolz. Way to take a perfectly f#@king stoopid NAD thread & turn it into something tawdry !

311-I hope you didn't spit beer on the Blackberry. They usually don't survive a beer bath!

I think I might just just leave the new "logo" on that Soldano cab. I'm kinda liking it. Will certainly make people talk. Kinda like a guy I know who has this pretty decent sounding Marshall clone (housing cloned also), except on the front where the Marshall logo would be, he made a nameplate that says "GOLLUM". I love that. I lmao every time I see Gollum.

Thanks for all the responses, guys

BTW- I played the new amp for about an hour yesterday at an outdoor blues jam where it was about 104 degrees F outside. Luckily it was at a bistro that had lots of cold beer on tap. Amp kicks serious ass, man!

God dang it, Greg. I see the IMG tags in the quote, but can't view pics on the work PC.

Not going to have time to do clips for a while. Going to the beach in the RV for 5 days for the 4th. They'll be along soon enough. I may have to try re-amping this thing first!
