I have been happy with the Stomp/PS170 rig I've been using, but these seem to get rave reviews. I would need to combine it with the Stomp for effects etc. Thats why I'm waiting for more news on the Amp X.
I really want to try one of these, probably the Iridium. Don't need the heaps of gain, but I like the low end tightness. Seems like you can lower the maximum gain range with some programming. Useful, so as not to always be in the "bright cap" zone with lower gain settings.
The Amp X looks like...
Yes. Ergonomically its perfect. And it has that 2nd press or "current number" functionality, which for me is indispensable with the HX stomp. Plus...it has fantastic effects, should I need. But for right now, no signal passes thru the MS-3.
GF 90...interesting amp with a lot of very cool features, making it super versatile. Great classic rock overdrive. Fantastic cleans.
Shiva 20th...closer to where I wanted to be. Tighter gain, and more gain. Signature Bogner low mids. Still fantastic cleans.
Ecstasy 20th...for me, way better...
