Hey Chamai, I remember when they came out (many years ago), they did a combo that was quite good in it's day, and IIRC the sig series were the flagship head.  They were expensive (way out of my budget back then) and well made and sounded pretty good, certainly up there in their time.  Not sure how long they went on for (do they still make them ?), they were around for a while in Australia, but again that was years ago.

Does it sound anything like a jcm800? Really looking for something that has a lot bite to it. Another amp I'm dying to get is a Yamaha t50. The signature 120 comes with 6l6 power tubes. I like everything with el34s

From memory they have lots of bight, these amps were the bees knees back then. While I've probably heard a JCM800 I wouldn't know, so can't compare directly. From what I've been reading about the DMs (combined with my memory of them) it would be a good buy, they were/are special, bit like schecter vs fender in the early CBS years.
