It's a nightmare for people like me who are ADD. The amp has so many tweakable settings.
45 knobs, switches and sliders. And that's just on the front panel.
There are 14 more round back, and 13 output/input jacks. That makes 73 things to mess with if my math is right (I'm including the input jack on the front).
I've tried pretty much everything by now--10 watts, 45 watts, 90 watts, tube rectifiers, diode rectifiers, variac power, bold, bright, thick, fat "preset" presets, sliders (graphic eq), solo boost, Mark I, Mark IIIc+, Mark IV, Lone Star, Tweed, effects loop engaged, effects loop bypassed, tone controls bypassed, on and on. Here's how I feel:
And I'm not even sure what good tone sounds like anymore.
But, when it all comes together and I have a sweet clean, gnarly blues and tight gain tone dialed in...
who am I kidding. I haven't gotten that far yet.
It looks killer though!
