Agree Abe. I found them a bit macho - seemingly designed to be cranked. Imagine if the music industry was more organised and JM had to pay compensation for all the industrial deafness claims :)

Still, someone like Jimmy Page seemed to work out how to get the most out of them across a range of dynamics but, at my level, when I saw them it meant ringing ears.

Fender Twins have always been my fave.
