Ok guys, first post here. Hi everyone ! I'm from france so please don't be rude about my english I'm about to sell my mesa road king 1, cause I don't think it is the real amp FOR ME (just personal choice and decision). So I was thinking about getting a Bogner XTC 101B, but its price is just BUT, a few days ago I saw a "demo" XTC101B head in a store (on their website) for a price that would make my wallet happier... Anyway, I have 2 questions : - The store is 5 hours far from my home : does the XTC101B worth it ? - I've read HORRIBLE things on some forums (including the gear page) about the XTC, lots of users/owners seemed very unsatisfied with it and I started to realize how many "XTC for sale" things were on the internet...So, this 2nd question is about the same as the first one : is the XTC really a great amp ? Some precisions : I'm looking for a tighter sounding amp in the low end than the Road king, more "liquid" gain, more mids, NO ice/sharp trebles, not fizzy/buzzy/boomy, and for the clean channel : better than the Recto one, but I'm not always playing in clean channel, so... I love the sound of steve vai in "die to live", "tender surrender" for example, even if we all know these are not direct bogner direct on the CD... Please help me !
