Well Shallbe has been touting the new Matchless King Cobra that he helped get off the ground. I've owned a Chieftain, SC30, Clubman, and the Phoenix in the past. I ordered the gray sparkle 1x12 combo from Stu at Fat Sound. As usual, it arrived in perfect condition today. Stu is incredible to do business with. So I plugged it in and grabbed my '07 Murphy Les Paul and fired it up. WOW!!! This amp is great, sounds like a real fat, articulate Clubman, with more gain and a slightly different voicing. It has a cool "bite" to the notes, think Mississippi Queen tone, but the amp is NOT shrill, but thick and fat with a nice rounded treble response. I used my Old World Esquire with a Budz pickup and that had the same kind of tone on those Youtube videos of Billy Gibbons at the NAMM show. The amp really responds to your picking attack and cleans up very well with the guitar's volume knob. The reverb really sits well and never gets overwhelming when cranking the amp. The trem is nice too, although I'll probably change the tube for that. I have a couple of nice EF86 tubes I haven't had a chance to use yet, but the amp sounds great stock. I love it with the volume all that way up and the first or second tone setting. Clean to scream. The only bummer is I have to leave to Scottsdale tomorrow for 3 days, ARGHHHGGG!! Anyway, thanks Shallbe for informing me about this amp and to Stu for making everything work out.
