Last night I played a Matchless Lightning. I have played it a few times before and have been able to compare it to my amps and my neighbors collection. This includes a Bandmaster, a Mesa Maverick, a Top Hat Club Deluxe, and a Maz 18 Jr. The Lightning does not keep up -it flat out kills, no - slays all the rest IMHO. I am completely enamored with this little 1x12 combo. Question: how much of the throaty, woody tone comes from the cab? I have a very nice 2x12 cab and wonder if a head would lose all of the mojo? Will it retain that hollow mid range that I hear? I seem to "hear" the cab and wonder how much of what I like comes from the wood and the baffle or if it is from the amps circuit? NONE of the other amps has that glorious tone (though some have the same speaker). I will try to run the amp through something else next time. What is the baffle of a lightning made of?
