I'm thinking about purchasing the gries 5 as an upgrade to my "home" amps. I'm all set on a bigger amp for gigs. Right now I own a fender champ 600 and a vox pathfinder 15r. I modded the 600 with a bypassable tone stack, new weber 8" and tubes. Fun little amp but still sounds kinda small. After a while you just feel like having something with more low end and a bigger sound, I hooked it up temporarily to a couple 12"s and hit closer to what I wanted, but because of the ohms mismatch I can't continue to do that without blowing the amp. The vox sounds pretty good too, but I know I can do better. It works, but I feel like I can get better cleans. So I'm looking at the gries 5 to fill this role. On paper it seems perfect, the 5 watts will be definitely be loud enough, the question is will the bigger cab and speaker sound bigger than the champ by a little, or by a mile? More bass response? Better cleans? Has anyone compared the gries 5 to the amps mentioned above and off some insight? I have know way of trying before I buy so this is a last ditch effort to research before I just pull the trigger. Thanks!
