      No, I bought it from a local DIYer financing his next project.

        If you didn't build it, its not DIY, its SEDI ( somebody else did it ).

        I switch between the Maggies and the Twins, the JMRs have been my favorites for a while but there is something very natural to me about the panel boxless sound. The weird thing is I had MMGs for a while and tried everything to get their best but had to resell them - something about the treble.

        I need to get an amp that mates well with the SMGs I don't think my flea watt tube amps are the best match.
