As a result of a trade with AK member Skylab I'm now the very proud owner of a KX-100 and an FM-50b, both with gorgeous new wood cases. Last night I connected them to my Meadowlark Shearwater Hot Rods and they've never sounded better. The tone of those tubes is so great...I'm sure you guys know what I mean. The way a thick, hollow-bodied electric guitar sounds through this system is something every music lover should hear. While my signature system has the upper hand in absolute volume and power (and sounds pretty great in tone as well) there's something so very special about these Fishers. It's like I want everyone I know to hear this...and not in a "my stereo is so great" kinda way...more like everyone should experience this.
