    Finally got a chance to play one of these today at a local store. Played through a Les Paul with the air brake at Bed Room level. This amp oozed tone, I knew this amp was a marshall clone, but until you hear it in person it just isn't the same. I think all the videos and clips I had heard did it a little bit of justice but certainly not the same as playing it live. At full power, wit the air brake on, it screamed Plexi-tone and fiddling with the dual loudness controls really brought out the life of the amp.

    Anyone else have any thoughts on these? It will definitely be my next amp in the near future...along with a les paul, haha.

    Just got one earlier this week and I f*cking LOVE it! Remedy, Marshall 4x12 w/ greenbacks, Gibson SG.

    Such a great tone, I can't stop playing, every time I plug in, I just want to play and play and play... I love this amp.

    Just got one, really a great amp, great tones with either a single coil or humbucker guitars. It is a rock machine for sure but also has a lot of different flavors.

    Very reach harmonic tones. would love to play it with greenbacks 25's... for now I use budda 2x12 and 1x12 mesa boogie thiele cab.

    I'm sure it's a killer amp, but your review is seriously discounted by the fact that you're playing it at bedroom volumes with the Airbrake. Not an amp in the world, IMO, oozes tone with an Airbrake at bedroom volumes.

    Yea.....I guess a more positive note would be for him to say......if it sounded that good with an attenuator at bedroom level, I can imagine what it must sound like opened up!! lol

    The Remedy absolutely [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG] 's!

    I was playing mine through a rented ZBest cab which sounded awesome.

    I'm waiting for my new Dr.Z 1x12 cab loaded with a Celestion Gold to be made.

    It's a great amp for sure. One of the best new amps out there.

    Sure, bedroom volumes with an airbrake aren't the best, but i did head back to the store a few days ago and tried it out in a sealed room where I could really crank it and then...then it really "oozed tone".

    Great tones, great licks, and very cool song. You playing compliments each other very well.

    Thanks, you can download our album free with the link in my signature. The Remedy wasn't used on the album :)facepalm), but it still has great tones.

    I'm looking to get a Marshall flavored amp in the near future. I want a classic vibe but it doesn't have to be a dead on clone. The Remedy and Emplexador are the two amps that grab my ear.

    Or a clone. If you don't have a Marshall-flavored amp and you want one then get a Marshall. There is a reason 90% of the rock tracks we all love were recorded with Marshalls. It is the sound of Rock.:bow


    That's my 2 cents : ):bonk

    More Remedy action from The Hot Wires (formerly Dangerbird). The Remedy is on the right:
