Just saw a very nice looking 50 cal head but had no EQ. Anyone have any experience with these and if so what is a good price.

I've got the combo without eq. if it has metal toggle switches and 4 EL84 power tubes, then it's just like mine, without the speaker, of course. My combo has the Black Shadow MC-90, but it sounds better through a 4X12.

Overdriven, it has a similar tone to my Quad, but it's not as tight. The EL84 tubes add a different character that some love, some hate. Keep the volume around 5, and it tightens up.

Cleans are amazing! I keep thinking about getting a Fender Twin, but when I plug my 335 with GFS Mean 90's, I don't think I need to.

If you can get it for around $400.00 to $500.00, I'd say that's a good price.
