Oswego! That's great!! I currently reside in Auburn,NY. We're almost neighbors!!

Auburn NY. Yikes!
I grew up between there & Ithaca. Somewhere between Route 34 & 34B.

I've got my awesome older sister in Aurora.

It's a wonderful rabbit hole. There are lots of fun stops. The Maestro is Shambala for this mental exercise.

Yeah, they had some amazing guitars. I got my Vox AC15 at McNiels, and bought a banjo and ukulele for my wife at Ithaca Guitarworks.

Watch your back is an understatement when carting around an MC2300 as well. I've come to that crossroads with age and now I am exploring the lighter weight options. Although if you are powering a twin JBL e120 cab at 4 ohms my concern is whether an MC250 can cut through a 2-drummer stage setup. I forget if it's the MC2100 that weighs in at 57 lbs but without a desire for multiple racks and heavy weight, I've started to consider the Mosvalve 962 running one-channel (160W running the A-channel only) as at least a backup option for less 'equipment weight' at gigs. I currently use modded Fender-type amp heads (one based on the blackface specs, another a 135W ultralinear) and save the SMS preamps for when a large stage needs the McIntosh.

The e120 is indeed a hefty speaker. I do play in a six piece two drummer band currently using a Dr Z Maz 38 and have no problems cutting through the the mix. The band is actually very quiet, I'm the loudest guy in the band with the Z turned up basically a third of the way. I am pretty confident that the mc250 will provide me with enough stage volume with the band.

Howdy everyone. I've been a lurker on this forum for a bit and have finally joined up. I play guitar with a Dead tribute band out of Syracuse,NY. We call ourselves Pearly Baker's Best and are currently doing some dates backing up David Gans. I have been pretty resistant to "going down the rabbit hole" and copping Garcia's licks and tones since I don't wish to be pigeon holed as another "Jerry" guy.
