I've got one.  You can't have it.  But I'll be happy to answer any reasonable questions about it, since I'm always up to firing it up for a while.

How does it sound with your Ric, TT?

Haven't had a Ric in decades, but it sounds terrific with the Eclipse 12,  super clean and chimey to gritty and full.  We used to do a segue between "Feel A Whole Lot Better" a-la Byrds/Petty to the tail end of "Won't Get Fooled Again" and I could just wind up the wick on the guitar, lean into it and get that edgy gritch quite easily.  It feels good and has just a little sag when the master is wound up.  The single tone control is adequate to the purpose, set it and forget it.  With the input wound up, it has a pleasing furry sort of noise to it, strongly reminiscent of what an amp with EL-84's (of which I have several) does.  It has a "deep" switch on the back that I've never turned off, for what that's worth. YMMV.

FWIW, It mostly gets run though a Sourmash 2 x 10 cabinet, semi-open back, loaded with Eminence Legends, wired for 4 ohms.  At 4 ohms it's plenty loud, easy to hang with a band as long as nobody has ego problems. :D

PS: A techno-geek acquaintance explained that the NuTube is really a vacuum tube, just in a different physical configuration.  In short, this thing is a great deal and with so many variants, you can just pick your style and go.

Huh. I thought you had a 360 for some reason, TT. No matter. Thanks for the excellent info.  A great deal, evidently.

I think just the positive review and the price makes it pretty cool. Especially if you want a Vox sound, but don't have a Vox budget!

Hope.  I had a 366-12 (convertible 6-12) eons ago.
