Not to knock Schroeder, but they're hard to get and way out of my budget. Here's why I'm asking. I'm a big Nels Cline fan. that being said, I'm not looking to sound like Nels. BUT, I like what he uses the Schroeder for: a dynamic clean platform for pedals. Here's the question: Will any 30-40 watt marshall style amp do basically the same job or am I missing something? note: if I could afford a DB7 and it made sense for my gig I'd get one. I'd much rather give the builder/originator the money.
