    It's cold outside.

    Not into the Marshall thing.... :confused: IF....that was the case, I would probably reach for another brand, they just do it better and at more more digestible price in my opinion.

    I think it's hard to argue with this clip:

    I know this is about the actual amp but the Friedman HBE model in the Axe 3 is my go to. Better than any Marshall model in there IMO.

    It continues to be quite a winding and fairly dramatic path! Lol

    Yeah. I’m waiting to hear what that amp “lacks” exactly. Any Friedman hate is another in a LONG line of Internet forum BS.

    The BE-100 have changed a good bit since 2012 though, sounds softer and smoother now. The Phil X video sounds fantastic.

    Dave would tell you get the Friedman buxom boost pedal to get exactly what your looking for . I’ve heard him recommend it especially, to “tighten “up the dirty Shirley.

    What's changed exactly? I have the OG version that's in that Phil X video - the handwired by metropoulos version. I've noticed it's juicier and feels different than the newer ones I've played but I've only played the newer ones in the shops so I never knew if it was cab differences I was hearing.

    The filtering had changed among other things, which affects the sound and feel a good bit.
    I find the newer ones sounds a bit too polite and smooth too me.

    overpriced....let me say one thing,the 99% of the haters of anything remotely expensive have a sub 1000 bucks amp,say a Fender,its retail price is at least 10x the cost of production,boxed and out of the factory,i mean,complete,while any small builder,so less than 1000 amps per year,its Xmas when they can reach 3x their production cost,most of them follow a 2,5x rule,just to be competitive and keep the workflow.
    On top of that,the higher priced instruments are aimed mainly to pro players,those who can make a living at,if you're not and a have the dough,fine ,get one and enjoy it,for the rest,get real and keep torturing your blues jr.

    That’s interesting if anything the new ones are more raw and tight and brighter then the old ones. I did s because people said the old ones were to dark and soft sounding..
