    FWIW - that's " The Best " - D-Type amp clip I've heard around here - Thick fat and non buzzy - great sound.
    It's exactly the reason I'm on the waiting list of GW.
    There are plenty of clips by Scott L and many others but this is the clip that does it for me.
    The other clips are all a bit thin for my taste - it could be the G12-65 speaker that I don't care for.
    good thing is I have 4 EVM12L's from the 80's that are lying in my garage just waiting for the call from Gary that I'm next in line

    thanks for the kind words guys!

    the mic is the built in stereo condenser mics on my boss recorder.

    guitar was a historic 57 goldtop lp with lollar imperial low winds.

    Nice work! I really like the tone a lot, as it's more toward what I go for with a D-style thing. Closer to a Bonamassa/EJ type-thing, as opposed to the typical Ford/Carlton stuff we hear so often.

    I agree that is is closer to the EJ/Bonamassa tone. I liked it a lot.

    thanks guys. the EV12L is really a wonderful speaker - the very best sounding dumble combos I've played used the 12L, and I first played the gwerks thru my friend Jato's 12L mesa cab and it blew us away.

    The g1265 still has a certain thickness and looser feel to it that I like, though the EV does nicer cleans. The EV also excels at producing the "clean" overdrive tones that some of these amps are known for.

    Next up, a clean clip with a Strat.

    Lou, I'm not a guy that seeks out the Dumble tone, but that tone is fantastic no matter what type of amp is making it.

    Makes me excited, since I have an EVM12L loaded cabinet on the way!

    Look forward to the Strat clips!

    I kinda got out of the d chase years ago after going thru a couple two-rocks and fuchs. I actually preferred a nice SLO to those amps, and used brunos for cleans and with pedals. I got on Gary's list on a whim not even 100% sure I was going to take delivery but I am glad I did - of all the amps I've owned/played, the gwerks is really the first to combine stellar overdrive tone and clean tone, versatility, and nice feel. I don't really shoot for RF or other d users tone, I just dial it to where it sounds good.

    Strat clips as soon as the baby wakes up!

    Yes S = short. They are suppose to be super smooth and creamy.... more so then the L's. Hopefully someone will chime in with the technical specs.

    I have not even cracked open the box it came in ---- hopefully there is actually a speaker in there :eek:

    I love that Lou. I wish I had not sold my other 1x12 cab. I should'a kept it and put a 12L in it. ;(

    Cleans do not get any better than that ..... well maybe they do to for some folks around here --- but as far as I am concerned, that is about as beautiful a clean tone as I could ever hope for in an amp.

    Those are some of the best clips I have heard of any amp period. I agree LVC, that is a beautiful clean tone.

    Lou, you said that you also like SLO type tones, have you tried a crunchier amp through the EVM12L? I plan on using my cab for a number of different sounds, and I have been curious how it does the edgier overdrive tones? It seems like the British style of overdrive would probably be best obtained with a different style of speaker more Celestion oriented.

    But not to derail the thread too much, those clips are just fantastic. Thanks!

    -Seth
