Thanks to an outstanding deal with TGPer WODKA, I am the new owner of a nice "little big-man" amp, the Tungsten Crema Wheat. Already I love the bluesy lead tones this delivers, and when cranked with a bridge humbucker, the overdriven wound strings... well i haven't heard sounds like THAT since I engaged in unspeakable acts of brain cell destruction that can't be spoken about here while listening to CrazyHorse turned up LOUD, back in the day. This is my first 5E3 derivative, and for those who may be wondering, this amp, while very inspiring, has not brought me closer to the level of a Greg V during the 5 hours that I've had to mess around with it. Dang, i will have to speak to Adam P about that. It has the M75 speaker, which as others before me have noted gives the amp a heavy mid-range emphasis. The bass response doesn't get really ratty until both amp and guitar volume are really cranked; before that, the wound strings yield some very nice brassy horn-like tones that I want to explore further. I am curious to ask other Crema Wheat owners whether they have relied soley on guitar volume roll-off to get their rhythm sounds, or perhaps settled on using a different speaker than the M75 (great rock speaker for sure, but I'm thinking here in more of a Blues-Americana-roots context)? I think I'd like to stay away from the 50 oz magnet, super efficient speakers (like the Mesa MC90 which works great in the 5:50 Express); so am wondering has anyone run an alnico speaker in this amp similar to what Tungsten offers in their Cortez, and if so, could you comment on the tonal differences the swap made? I am not rushing to make such a swap, but am interested to learn others share their experiences with this amp.
