I'm not much of a live player, but I do record a lot. I have the 'classic' sounds covered with my Germino Masonette, but need a high gain tone as well. I don't like using pedals to get a high gain sound, and would rather get another head to do the job. I'm thinking a Diezel Einstein (50W) or a Bogner XTC w/ an Eventide Eclipse in the effects loop will do the trick. Seems simple, but extremely flexible. I don't think I need another effects unit because from what I gather the Eclipse is pretty powerful, but I could be wrong? Any reason why I would need anything else? Remember, no switchers or midi controllers needed... I'm not using this puppy live anytime in the near future.
