    Isn't Barcon the original name, with 'con' for controller? At least that's what's been in my head for a long time. If I'm wrong someone will correct me I trust.

    I don't keep track of how often I break chains. Break with a chain tool, that is; I have never "broken" one in use. I think that "once you punch out a pin" statement is false. This assumes you are...

    I've been very happy with both pairs. Also heard very good things about the A70s. I think GB has a pair in fact.

    Thanks, I saw that on Audio Karma and I do in fact have the correct board.

    I paid $25 for the A150's. Vinyl cabs unfortunately but mint, other than needing a re-foam.

    That Ritchey seems pretty outside your wheelhouse, but I like it. Is the pump peg on the stay a braze-on?
