Hi all, I've been looking to replace one of my Bassman 59RIs with something that has a little more Marshall flavour. I contacted Greg Germino and he steered me towards a Club 40 or 55LV because of their cleans in a gigging environment. He wrote to me that a classic 45, although closer in circuit to a Bassman, will have less headroom than my Bassman, and I need some cleans for gigging. Dirt will be from pedals as most venues have noise restrictions. Now some guy wants to trade one of my Bassmans for his 1987X. What can I expect compared to the Germino offerings? (Besides build quality, which I know is better with Germino of course). I read the 1987X without attenuator is too loud for even big gigs? I don't read something like that with the Germino offerings. Is there a big sound difference? The 1987X sounds always a little harsh and bright on youtube, but everyone seems to put it on 10 in every recording. Is it useable for cleans? Clipping the bright cap?
