the hogleg was a good, solid setup.   Loved it as an MS rig w/the MK4/8 combo I ran for a while.   I was just listening to a Phil show from Boston in '08 and was reminded how good that sounded.

Nick had one for a while.  And I think wklitz uses one (or did).  It's conceptually a pair of CMC6 bodies stuffed into one larger diameter tube.. aka "the hogleg".  One of these might be a little smaller than 2 regular CMC6 bodies, but not by much.

The (slight) advantage of having CMC6's (or even CMC4's) is that you could always switch to caps on bodies without actives for a while... either just to be different or if a KC5 cable gets buggered up.

I think the real reason to get one would be if one fell into your lap at a decent price, and you happen to have the right (KCY??) cable.

Yeah, I have the correct KCY to use w/ it. I just dont have the $1,800.00 the VST costs tho :P :(

I might be selling mine in the next couple of months.

Hells yeah!
