I am loving my amps now, really boiled it down to three; all in the same sort of sonic ballpark. What I have always found in the past is that I'll dig the cruch from an amp, but the cleans will have me tweaking... and tweaking.... and tweaking. I never suspected that a 4 input Marshall Plexi type of amp could shimmer and still have punch and body at volume for cleans. Roll the volume off on my guitars with single coils and work the amp for the cleans I have chased my whole life. I finally got them and man, I am digging it. I never owned a Plexi style amp, the Bogner Ecstasy Classic in "plexi" mode was as close as I ever had. I have never had a 4 input non-MV Marshall ever; I always associated them by default with AC/DC type of rawk tones. And they do that - to a "T" - but I was ignorant, yes even with Jimi's music, that you could get this kind of clean. I am just destroyed over the beauty and power you can have by simply switching over to the neck single coil on my H/S/S Melancon guitars and roll the volume off a touch and have the most incredible deeply satisfying cleans. I just never knew. The Flexi did that, but it is voiced in a very modern way that doesn't do this sound. But that amp taught me a lot about this method of playing and using the guitar's volume how I'd use a channel switcher or pedalboard in the past. The Germino Club 40 (and next week, Germino Lead 55 to compliment it ) just have stopped me dead. I have played such a range of material with this amp, from rock to country to soul/R&B now with it *so* damn perfectly, I can't express my happiness with it. With a very spare pedalboard I can generate most anything I need or want and it is just do damn good sounding to me. My hat is off to Greg Germino for his insane quality craftmanship inside these amps (and it is extraordinary), excellent customer service, cool and friendly manner on the phone and creating these killer amps. You da man Greg! Bravo! And my message to those who haven't tried or just don't know, seek out a 4 input non-master volume Marshall Plexi style amp. And work the amp, push it and pull back from it, and work your pickups and volume/tone pots. Incredible cleans are there - I just never knew and wanted to point out that they are there. And they are goooooooood.
