    Anyone here have an opinion on how good the cleans are? I know this amp is set up for od tones, just curious on the clean and reverb department,

    Thanx, Bigtone

    Garys amps are not just set up for OD. The clean channel on these are very 3D sounding. My top 3 amp of any amps I own so far. Cleans are in the top 2. Also mine is one of the first four and Gary tells me I need to update to new specs. Says it will be even more 3D responsive.

    I've got #20 50 watt, cleans are spectacular. Plenty of tweak options too.

    Had a demo at my house with a fellow TGP'er and we were A/B'ing his Glaswerks 100 with my Carol-Ann OD1-100 and they both had spectacular cleans and tons of overhead.

    Marc G's amp is a 50 and one of those original four. But yeah, I'd agree....

    My only other spring reverb amp is a DRRI. The Glaswerks is better than that, but I have not used it. I prefer digital reverb and wet/dry.

    Mine is a 50 also. Mine is way louder/different than Marcs due to the power section I tweaked in as well as the years of R&D.

    I need a 100 too!!

    Gotta come and check you out some time soon. Gotta hear these amps and tweaks of yours. Also, wanted to pick your brain some more about cabs. I remember you speaking highly about one of your (Glaswerks?) cabs. I think I need a couple more cabs to play my stuff through.

    Anyway, will see if you're up for it some time after NAMM.

    Have fun out there!

    Hey Scott, are you still recommending KT77 types for these amps? I saw that you were using 7581s?

    My Glaswerks is a thing of beauty, clean and overdriven. :AOK
