So I'm kind of familiar with the feel of the Bassman/JTM lineage of Marshall type amps. But I never spent much time with a Plexi, Super Lead, Bass spec or JCM 800. It's pretty easy to grok their gain structure from recordings/vids, but I'm wondering if people can chime in on feel (and not just for Marshalls, but variants including Germino, Dr Z, Brunetti, Friedman, etc...).

For example, would a higher gain SS rectified Small Box have tighter feel/faster response/less clean up with the volume knob than a lower gain Dirty Shirley? Same question for Dr Z SRZ vs Antidote?

I think the solid state rectified amps would have a less spongy feel than the tube rectified ones. But the best way to answer your question is to play all of these amps and see which one(s) you like.

I think in a live situation, SS does a better job. At bedroom volumes, it's another story
