212HD - EV Loaded(?)
65RD and 212HD fed from a digitech RP200 stereo output pedal
... and you COULD use them in Stereo for that even "Bigger" sound!
Thanks for the awesome photos!
Oh.. and the 212 definitely has Electro-Voice EVMs in it!
Could you make that manual available please?
Some of the amps I have rebuild.

That shot of the back of 2x12
That shot of the back of 2x12 w/ made me wince a little as that looked like my old MM HD 130 from 20 or so year ago. Taking it up and down stairs was always fun and some great memories. 8D
Yeah, I hear ya. Here's my twin.
Ouch!! my back, my poor back!
Ouch!! my back, my poor back! The pic that Terry posted is awesome! Talk about a wall of sound!
Yeah, the twin was a beast
Yeah, the twin was a beast but it served me well for 30 years. Only actually BROKE once, when the waitress behind the stage put my beer on top of my amp and it fell over spilling cold beer on hot tubes. CRACK! Actually, it didn't really break them. Just distorted earlier with one tube broken. Now that I think about it, probably should run it with two anyway! Hasn't been fired up for a few years now. Should get sold but who the hell want twins these days! The speakers are worth more than the amp! Mike.
Those JBL's do look ...sexy..
Those JBL's do look ...sexy...I can't imagine how heavy that is Mike. I have one JBL E120 and it is incredible heavy by itself.
Yeah, a twin IN A FLIGHT
Yeah, a twin IN A FLIGHT CASE is a bear, but the wheels are better! Made a ramp for my van so I could roll in in. THAT saved the day. Now the van's gone and I couldn't even get it IN my Blazer unless I took it out of the flight case. Like I NEEDED a flight case! It never flew. But it did protect it from a lot of bumps and grinds. Gawd, I loved that amp. It MUST be in the basement SOMEWHERE! The wife probably has stuff piled on it. Memo to self-find twin! Mike.
Mike, I love my Twin, but it
Mike, I love my Twin, but it is getting harder every year to move! I've thought about installing Session handles on the sides to help with 2 man transport! (I think there's just enough room above the legs).
We started using hand trucks
We started using hand trucks or "dollies" to move our gear. It was ok but stairs, to much beer, graveled parking lots, or graveled driveways were no fun.
Jeez.. It's been years since I've played a gig so I'm kind of out of the loop with hauling gear. But I still play or record on Saturday nights with friends. I guess this is the next phase for me but I do miss lighting up my amp and playing loud with a band.
Dang .. I'm feeling somewhat nostalgic writing about all this, how about a pic?
( I've posted this pic before .. apologies.)
The 2/12/65 I got back around 1978. She's been my bread n' butter amp all these years.
The HD130 came along years later for outside gigs. But I have used her for playing inside also.
Carvin cabs.. Well, they where easier for me to haul and I liked the sound and look of them.
