I've seen a few threads on this new-ish amp, but not too many reports of how it's working out for gigs. I picked one up a couple weeks ago here on TGP (thanks Jazzgear!) and I must say it was quite a departure for me. I've had a couple of Boogies in past years, but was NEVER able to bond with them. I'm primarily a vintage Fender combo-with pedals guy, and that's been my comfort zone for many years. But something intrigued me about this tiny little head with a variety of tones, so I decided to try it. I took it to my friend's who has a LOT of cabs/speakers and we tried it with a number different mix of them and settled on a Bogner Cube with a vintage 30 as the best overall sound for this amp and my guitars. My friend loaned me his cab for a while to get used to and see if it was for me. Fast forward to this weekend and I had my first two gigs with the amp. The pics below show Friday night with my bud's Bogner Cube PLUS a V-Boutique Cube copy that I got on here as well (Thanks Wyldefan!!) and then tonight where I just used the new V-Boutique alone. I put a WGS Veteran 30 in the new cube and I like it even better than the V30. So now to the tones. I'm still getting used to it, but so far, it blows me away. There are so many good sounds in this amp/cab combination. The clean is a good bit different than I'm used to, and using an amp for overdrive instead of a pedal is new to me. During practice at home alone, I was "sort of" liking what I heard, but wasn't sold until I heard it in the live mix. The clean seem a bit thinner than a good Blackface and the drive tones are different than my favorite pedals - UNTIL you play it in the context of a bass, drums, 2nd guitar, etc... then it comes alive and kicks major @$$. It sounds HUGE... even through a tiny cube w/ a single 12" speaker, it cuts, it sustains, it has nice round, fat cleans and tight, focused, girthy drive. I have found that the two voicings I prefer are: Channel-1: Fat w/ gain at about 10 O'clock; Treble at 11 O'Clock; Mids at Noon; Bass at Noon; Presence at 11 O'Clock. Reverb (on back) at about 2 O'Clock. Channel-2: Xtreme w/ gain at 9 O'Clock; Treble at Noon; Mids at 2 O'Clock; Bass at 11 O'Clock; Presence at 1 O'Clock. Reverb barely on. I set up the graphic EQ with an inverted "V" with most emphasis on bands 2 and 3 and with the 5th band below the unity line. I use this for solo boost (it's footswitchable) for both channels. I run a DD3 in the loop, and I have a KTR set at low-gain for a gritty drive with the clean channel or to kick some extra gain into the drive channel for heavier sounds (my "heavier sounds" are probably pretty LOW gain compared to most folks... about the heaviest i ever play is ZZ Top). The biggest surprise is that this amp does NOT sound like any other EL84 amp I've ever played. I am somewhat anti-EL84, based on my past experiences with some amps, but this sweet little amp just exceeds all my expectations. ESPECIALLY with a Les Paul. Just simply amazing. My recommendation is that if you are not a Boogie Fan, or not an EL84 Fan, DO NOT overlook this amp. At least give it a try if you can find one in a store somewhere. You will be surprised.
