    MAS85 1-hour Custom Cover!

    Post by Tyler Bolles on Mon Dec 02, 2013 10:39 am

    Thought I'd make some noise on this quiet forum!  I'm loving my MAS85!  I've only played a couple gigs on it so far, but it's by far the best feeling and sounding cab I've used.  I play upright 99.75% of the time, and the feel from fingers-to-cab is really impressive...quick and natural feeling, even at high volumes.  I'm not great at describing the nuances of sound, but I really love the sound I'm getting from my gut-strung old Czech flatback>Full Circle>fdeck>Doubler>MAS85.  I think I'll keep it, though I might try to find a more powerful micro-head.  And Mike's build quality is very impressive.

    Here's a pic of a cover I made for it in about an hour from a quilted moving pad.

    Maybe I should post a pic showing the actual cab...Mike's work outshines my hack-sewing job by a mile! I'll get one up soon.

    Here's an "in-the-wild" pic...not great, you can only see the corner of my MAS85.  Also in the pic is the drummer from some Vermont band. I'm loving the cab...this was a 400-seat auditorium and the cab carried most of the weight, with just a bit in the FOH.
