Ya know, I don't post very much, but I gotta say, I've had my Germino Lead 55 for about two months now, and I absolutely love it. My band is recording our CD right now (I go to start laying down leads tonight) and I am constantly amazed at the sound of this amp. This thing is a f-ing killer. Every time I turn it on I get a big smile across my face. It has thump to spare, and really gets aggressive for a non-MV amp, but not fizzy. Slightly dirty tones from 1-5 on the volume knob, then turn it up from 6-10 for really slashing tones that rip your head off. Sorry for the sentimental gushing, but I gotta say that Greg is one hell of an amp builder. I had never had a plexi style amp before, and I know now that I will never have another amp style after this. Now I just can't wait to get a Headroom 100 Superlead. Thank god my band likes to play loud. We rock out with our cock out! Just kidding. Or not. Anybody else love those JMP style Germinos? The JTM's are pretty cool, but IMHO, those Lead 55's really got the swat.
