RE: Vox Tonelab (was: FOR SALE: Mesa Boogie Mark I Combo Amp)

Excellent!  I'm running a Stick setup, so I think this might just do 
the trick.  I was a little concerned by all the Harmony Central 
reviews complaining that "I wish I could get more bass out of my 
Tonelab".  But if you're running a drop-d bass through it with no 
difficulties, I think it'll have enough tonal response to handle it.

Let me know if you are able to do any experiments this weekend (I'm 
sincerely curious about how well the synths work through it too). 
And thanks for the feedback!!!  :)
