1. During the first week of August 2020, we'll be upgrading the software TGP runs on to the currently available up-to-date version. The software version is a significant upgrade, so there will be some downtime as we do the work under the hood. We've got a team of professionals, including the software development company assisting the process. We've conducted substantial tests using backups of the current forum to ensure a smooth and successful upgrade. We've gone to great lengths on the design of the theme (aka 'skin' or look and feel) of the forum to offer a better user experience for members and visitors. The default theme will be new, yet clearly influenced by the classic TGP look. We will have a dark version of that also easily selectable. Also available will be a "Classic TGP" theme that closely matches the current theme you are accustomed to using with the current software. There is also an easy width adjustment to make it set width or expand to your window width for each theme. As we get closer, I'll update everyone so hopefully, no one will be caught by surprise.

    the only thing i know about the marshall is that Paul Weller plays one with his casino, i've got a casino too.

    Not sure what I want, they are all marshally, even the bassman is sorta marshally isn't it?

    No, the Bassman model was Marshally when it was tweed, but the 6G6 is definitely Fendery.

    I would use those three amps for decidedly different purposes, so I'd need to know more about what you intend to do to make any sort of suggestion.

    For my version of all of those I'd got with the G6G Bassman. One of those pushed right to the edge is excellent.

    But is the clean usable for country?

    Definitely. The 6G6 will have more headroom than either of the other two amps you named. If country is a big concern for you I think it's the only one on the list that's even considerable.

    Obviously depends on the sound you're looking for. I had a Ceriatone Xpress for a while, great amp and just a shockingly beautiful build from Nik (think HiWatt construction). There is an expression my running buddys use before a race "start off slow then ease up". Well the Express starts off like a bat out of hell and then let's it rip. Nothing wrong with that, but I don't think you're doing weddings or worship with an Express unless it's choked back to the point where it won't sound good at all. Balls out rock, perfect for that and IMO cuts through much better than a JCM. I should add that I started running EL 34's on mine, and then went to 6V6's to try to tame it. Didn't.
