I'm following Kim's lead here, using a link to this post in my signature instead of having all that garbage at the bottom of each and every post

ADA Gear
Preamps: MP-1 Classic, MP-2
Power Amps: Microtube MT-200, MicroFET
Pedals: MXC control switch with Quad switch and CC pedal

Gig Rig (wait 10 minutes, it'll change)
Hughes & Kettner Grandmeister 40 Deluxe head into two Yamaha 1x12 cabs. I use a Boss MS-3 for effects and as a midi footswitch for the amp.

Backup rigs: Peavey Classic 20 Mini Head with matching tweed oversized 1x12 cab (this amp rocks), Hughes & Kettner Switchblade 50 combo


Great setup dante! I remember the microtube being a pretty sweet little preamp, but I don't remember if you can run to 412's off it?

He could only play the top and bottom strings of that one. The strings in the middle are new and unused :lol:

Good for a giggle

Thank for sharing that Radar!


It's interesting for sure because it seems they were very specific in going for the MP-1 tones. And of course playing through it will be the real test to see how it feels in your playing compared to the actual MP-1. I might have to give this a try.  :)

I fixed your Youtube linky  :thumb-up:

That does sound pretty dang good....the lead tones are very nice and I think I'm hearing the chorus back there

That's funny, :lol:

   It doesn't look like he has a PA system in his living room.

Going direct to the board I asume.
Low E on that thing is 20.6 Hz (half of 41.2 which is normal Bassguitar E) so you need some pretty heavy equipment to be able to produce that.

Not really  Danny,

   With good quality tubes installed, (and correctly biased), You can thrash on it and it will take it, and last for a long time.

   The Peaveys, are pretty well built and I have to say durable enough for road use. You can take these out and play football with them. It's pretty solid construction. I wouldn't do that with any of my ADA gear though.

   As for the Fender, I have three other tube amps from the 70's, and they have been running 20+ years with the tubes that are in them, and still sounding good. The 400PS is in need for a re-tube, and probably wouldn't hurt to have it re-capped and checked out thoroughly, but after that, it can go another 50 years and still kick major booty.


Yeah I'm worried about my current MP-1; it's sounds so good and is working so well I almost want to baby it and I worry about ever taking it out of my studio and that's why I have so many people on here how road worthy there MP-1 ones are.


 As for tube life I guess it does depend on the manufacturer. Here's a pic of my Marshall EL34 100/100 I sold back in June ( I know and I just got another ADA MP-1 LOL ) but I don't miss the "Hot Plate" as I called it and no matter what tubes and who serviced it I might have gotten a year and a half before the crackling then LOUD popping began! I was so annoyed with that amp and just kept retubing it until last year when the war broke out in Russia and tube prices started going crazy - so I got rid of it.


But good to know about the Peavey which I might consider if I don't snag a Mesa 2:50!
