So can the type 3 get heavy... like Em Pro / Opal tight bottom heavy? Does it have a bypass for lead tones? Is this the TR hot rodded Marshall circuit I've been waiting for?
Nope. This can get plenty gainy and sounds killer but not what you desire, what you are talking about is in the works I hope. Needs to have the post eq tone stack among other things. That said you would dig the way it sounds and reacts. Hell of an amp and it sounds great and is insanely musical, but would not be tight enough to satisfy you IMHO.
I would actually love to because I hear all these clips and think man they got to hear this type III but hell I don't even know how to post pics unless I cut and paste. I need to get to working on that if I can find the time. Where are you located? I'm in Asheville, NC and Cliffs got one in Fuquay Varina, next to Raleigh. I drove to Cliffs to hear one, bad move actually because I had to have it. The other bad thing was I picked up a Swan while I was there and can't get that thing out of my mind. Biggest strat sound I've ever heard. Man I need to win the lottery!!
