    Damn, the best lead tone I've ever had! The repeats still had an analog quality to them, leaving a halo of fatness around the bloom and decay of each note! Through my Langueoc hollowbody. I was able with the T-rex to coax laser like EJ tones! I'll be ordering both on Monday.Just thought I'd share...:drool Anyone have the same experience with the T-rex Replica?

    Yep, Just took it to Scott Lerner's today and had a field day through the new Glaswerks 50 watter. I'ts # 11, Padauk, Curly Maple and Koa. I posted a clip a while back of the 'Doc. It kills with the Replica!

    radcliff, what pedals do you think best compliment that type of amp circuit? The amp I played today I felt no need for any od's or boosts, I was thinking maybe aside from modulation effects, a good wah, and a Mutron, that that would be plenty I thought. I felt the tone of the amp was too nice to have it altered, maybe a klon and comp?

    Ya know....I bet a Fuchs is a similar circuit to your Dumble clone, and I use an RC Booster, some say it does a Klon thing or similar, but I couldn't justify the coin it takes for a Klon, so I got the RC after watching countless demo videos on their webpage.

    I love the RC because its such a sweetener, with a very nice voice in both the Treble Control and the Bass control, you can really get what you want, and you're not stuck with a single knob. I tried a Morning Dew, but the EQ wasn't to my liking.

    I see the Dumble circuit as a refined Fender sound, which is probably how it started, and why Andy Fuchs has an easy time turning Twin chassys into Fuchs ODS chassys.

    I used to play with Trey as my chief influence a few years ago, and sold my compressor to get away from that type of tone. With the very distinct type of attack he uses, I think alot of it has to do with his compressor and a tubescreamer midrange. If I got another compressor, I'd probably get a Keeley...it looks like it could more than do the job.

    ....that guitar looks real nice, do you get comments on it often?

    Yes, it's kind of a mixed blessing, it's a great liability when I play it on the road, some Trey phans said it's blasphemy that I have that guitar, lol. I recently ordered a G&l Legacy Deluxe as a back up, here's an old clip of the Languedoc with my band,http://www.sageband.com/music/Sage-2...agon-Intro.mp3
