    Nice strat, I normally hate them but that is nice.

    Outta interest what were the 1960 cabs like?

    I was the same with strats. Never played one I liked till this, which I loved instantly.
    Slim neck, great action,great tone, noiseless hotrail pickups, great paint job / scratch plate

    The cabs were fine. I drove them pretty damn hard sometimes and never had any problems.
    To be honest, there's no need for a full stack. If the venue's too big for one cab, you're mic'd up anyway.
    looks the business though.

    The head was epic

    Aye totally on the cab, only gonna get one 4x12, fancy a TSL 100 but not sure, just wondered on the cab cos I use an 87 original at practice (I think)

    If I could have any amp and cab, I'd take the TSL 100 and 1960A
    Saying that, I'd probably be just as likely to go for the combo.

    I'm using a Peavey Valve King ATM which is decent, but one day I'll reinvest.

    Yes. I'm a bit older than you I think. I learned to play late 80's and through the 90's and there was a lot of Eb about. I never saw the need. Doesn't auyomatically add heaviness because some of the heaviest bands from my generation were quite happy in E.

    Not a fan of drop D either. Nice for acoustic work sometimes, but for rock / metal I prefer to get a good effects set up and stick to standard tuning. Saves buggering about with string gauges and trem springs.

    I was tempted by one of them but got the Beast instead.

    Tunings - I was tuned to C# in my last band as in

    C#
    F#
    B
    E
    G#
    C#

    and tbh it sounded MINT, we weren't heavy it just worked, so Eb is quite a change for me, it's certainly brought me back to my bluesy roots, slipping back into Hard Rock territory rather than metal which is a nice change, one of me Les Pauls is in getting a new selector switch fitted and then I can do a set up on it
