Well, for me.
So I'm pining for the days of my powerball. Damn I really miss it, but was passing one of me fave guitar stores today and popped in.
Now I've had time to think, I had so much fun with... dun dun DUUUUUHHHHH
I tried it through its own 4x12 Peavey cab and an Ibanez JS100 they had in the shop.
Well, its probably everything I want in an amp.
It thins out where I wanted it to, the mids that I want were there, the riffing was clear and almost transparent sounding but with plenty of roar. It did have a tendancy to get a little noisy - but I like that in an amp, you know not too lairy its uncontrollable, but enough so it just sounds a bit messy and... just good. I almost shot a load with the morley wah pedal that was there. Don't know which one, but its just great to wail out of 30 mins. I know the guys there a lot and they know the situation, so they were happy to let me wail for a while.
Now do I like it better than my trusty old PB... Well I gotta say, if I could only own one, and lets be fair as I'm on ZERO right now, its gotta be this!
Don't get me wrong, I adored the PB, it was an A-1 amp. All my EQ, effects, guitars and cabinet was all set up around the powerball and night after night I would get compliments - BIG compliments on how amazing I sounded. I had other Powerball owners wanting to know what I used, course I'm happy to brag, er, I mean say hahahaha.
Would I own another Powerball? Sure. In a second. Its gotta be the best amp I have ever owned. It just made me totally. The riffing was absolutely killer out of that amp. But I have to say, I haven't been this bowled over by an amp since I first bought my Engl.
So - in conclusion - after trying the JSX, this is going to be the amp I buy. It may take me a year or two to get back to where I was in my life before all this shit! But its going to be this. The powerball and I were best buddies, but I just feel the JSX just fit me better. Its like finding that elusive tone that you just searching for. I just couldn't put it down... Man this amp fucking rules!
I did try out a Mesa Stiletto and a Mesa F50. I thought the Stiletto was just too dry and the EQ did nothing and the F50 - well I did like mine when I had it, but I totally KNOW why I sold mine now - just not enough... you know... I dunno what there wasn't enough of, but there wasn't enough of it hahahahha!
I'll be back, motherfuckers!!
