That's a great clip. I agree, sounds Marshally - without sounding exactly like a Marshall. I've seen that vid before, but seeing that Grissom is such a monster player - I wasn't sure if other mere mortal players were able to coax similar tones from their Clubmans as well?? Thanks for posting though.check out this clip of David Grissom playing a Clubman:
sounds pretty marshally to me, sounds great
So even though the Clubman lacks a Midrange control, it sounds as though maximum midrange and fatness is best achieved by dialing the tone controls way back and pushing the power section hard as you would a non master amp. Is this how most of you guys are running your Clubmans?
Also, I plan on getting a matching ESD 2x12 to use with the amp. Are most of you running your Clubmans with Matchless cabs/speakers? I have a Bogner 4x12 with Greenbacks that I will use as well, but I'd really like to go with something smaller and open back to change things up. To my ears, open back cabs generally have more midrange response than closed back cabs so I'm thinking a Clubman > open back ESD 2x12 will yield a more open, midrange focused sound. Any thoughts?
