On my business trip to Chicago I finally had a chance to stop at Make'n music. Great bunch of guys with some great gear!! Anyway, I had an opportunity to plug into one of the new 1974x handwired 18 watt models and I was blown away! This thing just plain rocked.........Its not as versatile as some of the boutique clones out there (could never replace my Sommatone-thanks Jimmy)....but if you jump the channels and just dime the tones and volumes you have absolute dead on vintage marshall tones...and all adjustments done from guitar. I really was blown away by what came out of this lightweight 1x12 combo.....I think they have also had the greenback custome made to be aged and loose right out of the box....anyway for all you guys that love vintage marshall tones at decibel levels that are acceptable ....these really do rock!
