NAD!! Quad Tube 150
« on: Time Format »

ADA QUAD TUBE 150M!!!!
 :whoohoo!: :banana: :whoohoo!:



I scored this so hard on my local Craigslist for....an absolute STEAL that I couldn't pass up.  (and I better not say exactly how much; Ms. Karma is fickle and I do not want to be on her bad side)  The guy even threw in an Alesis Quadraverb with the ADA Rack Holster!   :o   
This is now my Home/Studio Rig and I'm just so freaking stoked!!!  I just can't believe how well it's been taken care of; not a scratch on it.

I haven't gotten to play with it yet for much more than 30 minutes or so, basically just scrolling through the presets checking them out while tweaking around the Room Eq....
But I have to say it sounds KILLER so far!  :banana-rock:

Right, I won't need another MP2 for the studio now like I had previously planned. 

Anyone know if there's a list of the factory presets available?  I don't see it in the manual....

Of course it sounds killer - basically an MP-2 with an amp in a box ;)
Have you had time to fiddle with the extra 'touch' sense (envelope follower control) feature in the chorus?

How's the stereo effect out of such a narrow setup?
I'd expect it to be kindof like a neat ambient version of a mono rig - less mono-focused, not really stereo, just ambient.  I used to have a Roland Jazz Chorus back in the days behaving like this.

And quite neat they added the rack holster on the back, though of course it makes programming a Bit fickle.

Haven't explored that feature in the Chorus yet.  I can say the previous owner has this one real wacky patch with Chorus so strong that it actually warbles the tuning pretty drastic.

And the stereo effect is very pronounced when I'm close to the amp at bedroom volumes.  I'll get to crank it up a bit this weekend....I haven't turned the Volume past 20% yet and it will shake my house!    :o

Dude.  Your BONG weighs more than your car.   :lol:   Actually it certainly isn't unbearably heavy, but I still wouldn't like to huff it up and down a lot of stairs.
No, I didn't get a footswitch with it.  The guy didn't have those anymore to sell with the amp, unfortunately.
