I was fortunate enough to purchase a tophat emplexador mkII of papple from TGP today. Super nice guy. I am not saying this because I now own one, but because I believe it to be true. This has got to be one of the single greatest amplifiers I have been fortunate enough to play through. I cannot believe how versatile this thing is. Between the vintage/modern switch, the fat/treble, and the normal switch this thing you can dial any marshall tone from clean jtm45 to modded jcm 800. Its incredibly warm, even on the modern setting. Not that brittle jcm800 thing going on. I own a marshall jubilee, jcm800 2204, bogner shiva, and a straub cantus and I swear this amp can get anyone of those tones. If you haven't tried one of these out yet, I highly encourage you to do so. You won't be disappointed. I can't believe more rock guys are not playing these amps.
