Lol - nope definitely not a ball and chain. She's the one person I would give up the hobby for - if it came to that (but it won't). Scary when you mentioned the Silver Wedding Anniversary. Never thought of it in those terms before.
I'll have to get an audition of the 812 at some stage. Unfortunately for me it's not that easy with my location. Maybe next time I'm in the US (next year). Tania's coming with me this time - but I'm sure I can drag her to an audio shop ........ (yeah right )
