1 Proteus 9 months ago Head and cab, together again like they never were.Attentive readers (and those without lives, but you don't have to admit it here, even to yourself) may remember that Frank Giffen picked up a blue Kustom head for an unnamed GDPeer from a Craigslist seller in a parking lot in California a few weeks ago.If it wasn't transparently obvious, I am the unnamed. Frank saw the Craigslist ad many weeks ago, and thoughtfully remembered (because that's the kind of guy he is) that I've been casually looking for a head to sit atop my blue sparkle 2-15 cabinet - and offered to pick it up for me and ship it.After my negotiations with the seller, that's just what happened. (And a fine packing job, Frank.)I was concerned about color match, as in the seller's ad, from some angles the blue sparkle seemed a bit aqua - but not nearly as turquoise as that other color Kustom once had, the name of which I can't remember. (Except it wasn't Mermaid.) And it turns out it's not quite perfect - but it's close enough. The amp sounds very Kustomy; that is, there's a good 40dB of white noise before you even get started, but I knew that going in. The "High" input channel doesn't really work, and the reverb is mostly ground hum (probably a simple enough fix) - but I don't need those things for this amp (which will mostly service bass), and the price was very right.The service was even better!
