TONY IOMMI - Limited Laney TI100 Amp - Laser Cut Cross

Although this cross is basically a waste product, while laser cutting a grille for an amp,
I bought it for 2,50€ because of the history attached to it.

In 2012 Laney released a new Tony Iommi signature amp (TI100), which costs around 1300€(?).
For a limited time the first amps came with some extra stuff, including this cross,
which was part of Iommi's grille, from one of his tour amps.

You can read and see the rest on the pictures.
Again, nothing spectacular but sorta sweet nevertheless imo.
I'm going to sew it on my vest...good luck charm or mojo enabler - who knows. :P

Well I guess it's good enough to get a conversation started.^^

Apart from the historical meaning:
Actually it needs much more guts and cojones these days to wear a cross like this than an upside down one / Pentagram / etc.

The danger of wearing a cross...never crossed my mind. *badadumtsh* :D I'm wearing an iron cross made of silver around my neck since 10 years.

An Iron Cross is something quite different. It does not really back a conviction or belief. My best friend is a Metalhead to the bones and a Catholic and people in Clubs when they hear it ask him things like "Really??? Like...with Crosses, Jesus and so on? " :D

Well, depending on the person I'm dealing with, in their eyes they see a WWII symbol, templar cross or something metal related. Most Germans think about WWII though. At least that's my experience. I'm a Catholic myself, but dropped out and would call myself an agnostic. And yea, you can't scare someone with 666s and pentagrams anymore. Those symbols are now replaced by diamonds, pyramids, all-seeing-eyes, owls, snakes, other numbers and similar stuff. Funny that it's rather a thing of the pop culture, which is most of the time the radio friendly music genre. But I guess I'm the old fart now, because I dislike those "new" kind of symbolism. I'll make sure that my head stays on my shoulders. So thanks for the "heads-up". ;)

Thanks, still trying to find a decent spot. As it seems, I can't even use all of my previous used pins anymore. :/

I think it is not a holy cross, just a cross.

StereoDeth's picture

Yea, there is nothing holy about a cross, that is related to a band, that sold their soul for rock 'n' roll.^^
