    -I think the "Metal" name is not accurate.
    -It has an incredibly articulate lead channel.
    -It will be insanely loud.
    -The clean channel is way underrated, it sounds great at almost any volume, just turn that guitar volume down if you have hot pickups.
    -It is built to last forever
    -They are especially great in a live setting.
    -If you can find a "V" shaped "Metal" cabinet, it will sound even better.
    -They WILL blow 4 greenbacks if are not careful, for a 2x12", use 75W speakers or be very careful

    PS Give us a full report

    Oh yeah...rkstarr the modern is the new metal, if fact my modern is serial number WM503 and my Metals are WMxxx

    Every single person I know that has played on or owned one has said the same thing. Very Cool but Extremely loud and Extremely bright. I also hear it does one thing really cool and nothing else comes close to what it does except a roccaforte which is probably of the same lineage. For that reason I hope to play one at some point. Was not impressed at all with the one I heard at the high gain shoot out in LA but I think that model was called a rock Classic. Could be wrong. Either way that amp got slaughtered by everything in the room.

    Sure do!

    My two Wizards were both bright, I had a hard time getting them to "warm" up, but maybe my style doesn't work for those amps. I played them pretty loud too!

    My Metal is not bright unless its set that way, there is a "Bright" knob which can be turned down....and its not insanely loud either, though it can be turned up and get loud. My Modern Classic is louder....

    Here are a few cheesy clips...probably not stylistically what is liked here.

    and a really bad live board tape, sorry about all the annoying pick squeals and stupid noises....my drummer hates them so he needs tortured!

    Cool. One thing that helps alot IMO is using GB's or something GB flavored. The tone controls work alot better and if there were any volume issues the lower efficiency will keep it down. Another thing is alot of the Wizard stuff back then were custom made, so yours may have some extra features not found on other ones.

    I really like mine!

    Steve,

    Was the one you heard a Rock Standard by chance? I've heard those were not very good. They were something along the lines of a Park inspired amp.
