    If that's the start of a blues song, it's the lamest I ever heard. Hard to have the blues with an amp like that.

    I'm still loving my 100w ODS head. Makes me feel kind of bad that I've spent so much money on overdrive pedals...oh well, there's other amps that need them!

    As long as you're going to the trouble to hypnotize, shouldn't you replace "sold" with "given"?

    Good idea. But I don't mind paying for it.

    The only amp that actually makes a PRS sound great (to me, anyway). And I have another PRS now, so I have a vested interest in getting it to sound great. :)

    Spent some more quality time with the ODS this afternoon and I'm just stunned! Can this thing do no wrong?!?!? No matter where the tone controls, switches, and master volume are set it produces wonderfully expressive tones. The speaker/enclosure are a great match as well.

    The honeymoon is in full swing and we're not getting out much :D

    Great thing about Fuchs 50 SLX is really easy to dial
    good tone.

    Like Deaj said, it sound really good even low volume.

    Today I spent late morning making sound clips.

    I just posted one clip... which s inspired by Deaj.
    (SRV Strat + Fuchs 50 + Bob Burt V-front + Tone Spotter
    + CJOD)

    Other clips are include my Version R (Sakashta)
    '67 ES 335 (Front, Rear, clean, OD) and SRV.

    (Sorry about broken link. I just fixed it)

    That sounds like a good fit. I just bought an Eminence Red Fang and Governor (curse you, gear page!) to load into my THD 2x12 that's hooked to the Fuchs. And the Flexi, for that matter.

    Those two speakers are supposed to complement each other.

    Who'd you buy it from, incidentally, and how was the deal? Feel free to PM if you'd rather.

    I haven't tried a Governor but I've used the Red Fang and I love that speaker! I'd love to hear that combination - when will you have them?

    Mine also.
    Great speaker. I want to hear the ToneSpotters also however. Everyone loves them with the SLX.

    Yes, the Wizard is great speaker.

    Here is Tonespotter example. '67 ES 335
    Clean CH, gain 4, master 3 or 4.
    same setting Treble 7, middle 5, bass 4

    Tonespotter ES335 Clean

    Would you like to hear some rhythm?

    How about this?

    Rt 3rd 7th chord ideas from my AYGP DVD.

    Just 3 notes. Just add your groove!

    Now I am practicing rhythm changes on my Ukulele.
    This way I learn more about guitar.
