I don't do simulations, just the real thing. For a nice modern amp design, look at the one I did for these guys:
www.bassonsound.com

Modern yes, but no transistors, opamps or electronic switches. All tube, silver teflon wire, Wima FKP-1 and CD mica caps and relays.

Legendary lost it's legendary status years ago.

Maybe they can make an EPIC movie about the fall of the word LEGENDARY.

There's another one. There are no myths, only misunderstandings.

You could be a bid wide of the mark with that one.

But ...I guess a myth is as good as a mile.

Add it to the list of mis- and overused words like "great" and "hero".

Oh, I don't know, I think there are lots of more overused words. I would like to see elimination of "the" and "a", myself. Try going without them sometime. You'll find it liberating.

Think about the term "Living legend", that really means that you were and maybe still great, but also that probably due to a bad lifestyle ... you should be dead by now. Think of Ozzy!

I disagree. Ozzy used to be a living legend. He isn't anymore. I would say he's now post-living-legend, since he's post MTV. But even MTV is post-MTV.

It's one of the pitfalls of living in an era that came after everything else.
