Yes indeed! Saw it on the TDPRI and had the same reaction. They sound great with everything. I keep mine jumpered from Bright 2 into Normal 1 and plug my guitars into Bright 1. Play with the Bass and Treble to your taste as well as the Presence. The EQs effects your gain as does the Presence. Don't forget to do this discovery with different types. Having a 12ay7 in V1 & V2 is important in mine.
