Picked this up here on the forum (Great dealing with PD1030). I was looking for a hard rock amp for that can cover 70s and 80s hard rock. During the pandemic I got back into the players of my youth, EVH, Lynch, Angus, Rhoads etc. For the last few years I've been doing country and alt-country through Dr Z El84 and 6v6 amps. Mostly lightly overdriven and clean stuff.

So far killer amp for hard rock and metal. The green channel is OK. You could easily do a straight up county gig with it. Not too much character but I did, t buy this amp for the clean tones.

The blue channel is great. I was able get a great heavy crunch tone for early EVH tones right out of the box. It is a much looser feel than the red channel, but I imagine that is on purpose.

The red channel is a searing, modern lead tone that makes you want to play fast! So much gain! I cant imagine putting the gain knob above 12 o'clock.

I'm still in the honeymoon phase but I'm digging it. I need to have it out at a gig to really hear what it can do.

Here's a clip of the amp covering some EVH
