Hi everybody. I think I am about to take the plunge into Tweed territory. I have pretty much always been a humbucker into Marshall higher gain guy, but the last year I have moved away from that. The music I write no longer fits that sound at all. My Splawn sits unused as I play at home through a tweed 2x8" harp amp with a fuzz in front. I am looking at a couple of amps - The Tungsten Cortez and the Tungsten Crema Wheat. Greg V makes the Crema sound so good (like he does everything he plays through!) I am leaning that way, but the band I am in now plays pretty quietly (small rooms) and I am afraid I would not be able to drive the Crema because it would be too loud at that point. I would like the base tone to be a little gritty (not full out dimed Neil Young tone) then use a drive for dirty rhythm, and a fuzz for leads. How loud does the Crema have to be before I would get low gain but gritty tone with a Tele? Would the Cortez be a better option, or would that break up too soon? I also like the fact that I hear the Crema has tighter bass than a normal Tweed Deluxe - does the Cortez have this as well? To make matters more difficult, I have a line on a Clark Beaufort too. Any thoughts on this one as opposed to the Tungstens? I am new to tweeds, so any info I can get to help me make a decision would be really helpful. I have read a lot of stuff here using the search function, but I am hoping to add to the knowledge I have already gained. Thanks!
