    I got my Gries 5 on Monday and I've been having a blast with it. I figured I'd take a shot at recording some clips because they were few and far between while I was researching these great amps. I tried to be as bare bones as possible to provide ideas of some of the raw amp tones available and how they work with the guitars I currently own. So, I have clips with my G&L ASAT Bluesboy (Tele) and my G&L Legacy (Strat). The specs on the recordings are:
    Guitar -> Amp : AKG C3000 (pretty cheap condenser mic) -> Seasound Solo preamp/soundcard (an oldie but still decent) -> Sonar
    That's it, NO post verb, EQ, mixing, etc... it's just me playing guitar and wanking a few ideas that I mess around with sometimes. Please forgive my clams :worried <sorry, no humbucker guitars in the house right now :(>

    Great clips Greg. I also use a G&L Legacy with my Gries 5, but sounds like I need to pick up a tele!

    Nice. That thing sounds great!

    I sure would like to hear it with some humbuckers.

    Here is the beginning of the tune with rough guitar tracks inspired by just plugging in and playing with the Gries 5. I wanted to see if I could get nice rhythm gain to use in a more modern context. Just 2 guitar parts with reverb and some light delay added for color. It's rough, but the Gries sounds pretty cool beyond just breaking up imo:

    Simply just loving the new "gainier" track.
