    Thanks all! What is a TON of fun is taking the loop out of the amps and switching between the two preamps.

    My real goal and what I am realizing right now, is that the two power sections are always on. I am really digging the preamp out of the Unholy Union in to both power sections.

    Totally HUGE and absolutely gig friendly. Even at club levels.

    This is why I love big iron amps. Just unreal.

    Looks like amp Stonehenge. I remember that Reinhardt. I found your old clips when I was researching Reinhardts. Do you still have that Tokai LP?

    I am loving the amp! I have had a TON of Marshalls ranging from '68 to '75. The cleans, though a bit different, inspire me as much as my gorgeous '75 Superbass. The subtle shades that are within a finger/pick stroke, are...
    So beautiful and amazing and can GRIND!
    I will post a clip soon. This is at the top three of the Marshalls that I have owned.
    '72 JMP50
    '75 Superbass
    This..

    Gorgeous gorgeous GORGEOUS!

    Hard rock to Pettibone. Butt pinching!
