My Gries 5 is on it's way (hopefully it will be here tomorrow) and I'm stoked. If it's half as good as they say, I should have some great Blackface 6v6 cleans and maybe even some nastier tweed with the gain cranked and the MV set correctly. As I was doing my research for a killer small wattage amp that could do a lot, the YouTube demo of the Fargen miniplex mark II head really caught my eye. So much so, I almost passed on the Gries 5. But, I know in my heart of hearts the BF clean is the most important place to start for me. I'm buying my buddy's old Marshall 1965b 4x10 (actually, it used to be MINE ) because I want to have more options for different voiced amps (cheaper in head form) in the near future. So, would something like the miniplex II fill a void (old Marshall rock n roll? Maybe even vox-like?). I was thinking either the miniplex, Tiny Terror or possibly that new Egnator Rebel would sound pretty sick through the 4 x 10 and would be an amazing compliment to the Gries. Are those one trick ponies? It seemed to me watching the demo's of the miniplex II that they were pulling out some nice cleans, some cleans "with hair" that sounded awesome and then they were able to dial in more hard rock and heavier gain as well. This is all imaginary right now of course, I have NO funds to play with... yet.
