    Very meaty and evil sounding, no matter what the tube. Sounds good!

    It's ALL meaty if you tune your guitar low enough!

    Just a bit of top-end sparkle and I think you've got it, mate! :BEER

    Sounded good! +1 adding top end sparkle.

    Dude, that's prime rib with mashed potatoes, all smothered in gravy with horseradish on the side.

    Yes, that's somewhat meaty, but a little washed out sounding. You'd get a lot more meat with less drive and compression. The EQ is there - just too much compression. To me real midrange meat has more attack, clarity and punch. That's my opinion, since it's been solicited. It's not a rare thing for 6L6 tubes to provide a meaty kerrang - that's what the larger Valco amps are all about, for one. Not to mention early Marshalls, Bassman, etc, not that your clip sounds anything like those amps.

    I think my hearing is still pretty good because the first clip sounds fine to me. I go for a warmer sound.

    Sounds "fine" - what exactly does "fine" mean lol? There's no "good" or "bad" here. And, who made a comment about your hearing? Just giving my two cents. If your going to post and ask, expect every type of honest response in the form of opinion. As you requested, I'm not "shy".

    I like how the lower notes sound, but I'm not digging how the higher notes sound with the gain that you have going on here. The lower notes have a real nice growl to them... the higher notes have a buzz to them. At least, that's what my ear is hearing. I'm writing this while listening to your second "with EQ" clip. Definitely meaty, and I'd love to hear this mixed with some bass, drums, and double tracked... :)
