I play in a typical dance band that plays 60's through modern Country (Johnny Cash, Eddie Rabbit, etc), Country Rock (Keith Urban, Big & Rich), Blues (SRV), Rock (John Cougar, Brian Adams, CCR) and a bit of Classic Rock (ACDC, Black Crowes, etc.) I've tuned in my Nomad the best I can, but it lacks: a) a little "hair" on the clean channel (its wayy too clean even at 100% gain) b) pretty acceptable channel 2 - Boogie Lead c) wayyyy too much gain on the Marshall Channel 3, I gotta turn the gain almost completely off, and the dynamics suffer. (5751's aren't enough to tame this amp) So, it may be time to hone in on something a little more controlled and vintage. I'm looking for: a) Country / Country-Blues leads in the vein of Fender b) Boogie liquid lead c) A nice lighter Marshall crunch for stinging blues and Plexi-style rhythms I play rhythm and take alternate lead breaks. Should I be after the Heartbreaker or Maverick (or other newer MB??) , and which one do you think meets my needs the best. What kind of speakers ?
