Here's a follow-up to my "MonzaBilly" clips. Seems I'm the only one posting the less gnarly side of this beast.
This weekend my Jump Blues band did a video shoot, and here are rough mixes of three audio tracks. Me, Upright Bass, acoustic Piano, cocktail kit drums and vocalist.
I was playing my 335 w/ Lollar Imperials straight into the Monza 1x10 combo with an Emi Ramrod........you're also hearing a wee bit of an old Princeton Reverb I run along with it, primarily for Verb, Trem and a wee bit of clean clarity up top. I'm not switching between them, though.....just running both at the same time. You're mostly hearing Monz, though, especially when I dig in.
The Z was @ Volume = 9oClock, Drive @11 and Tone @ 2. Two clicks on the Brakelite, so I could balance both amps and not overwhelm the band.
Curious what you think. I'm still undecided about the amp. I like it, but I'm not really using it to it's full potential. Probably less than 1/2 my electric gigs cry out for that balls to the wall thing it does SO well. On the other hand, it's a very dynamic amp that FEELS great under your fingers. As I said, no pedals on these tracks, and I hardly even touched my volume controls.......just dug in a wee bit and it gave up the dirt, nicely.
I have the Monz up for sale, but on hearing these....I dunno. The gear merry-go-round!!!! lol
Jaguarguy (Mike): Hey Gary - Joe Walsh used a G12 65 in his Galaxie and it sounds great!

GuitarZ: So, I cranked up the privacy protection on my browsers, facebook, etc. I have to say I miss the music ads and such. I really don't need ads for watches and other random stuff. Maybe the internet knowing me isn't such a bad thing.

The Bad Poodle: This may be a truism... when you work in a corporate structure, the worst decisions always come from the top.

GuitarZ: I'm okay with the AARP letters. You're still living and breathing? What the heck am I to think when a funeral home sends me a free consultation offer? Ouch!

The Bad Poodle: I bought airline tickets online... now every few days i get emails that read "Your trip is almost here but aren't you forgetting something?? You don't have trip insurance!" and i'm thinking..."is there something i should know about your plane maintenance?"

GuitarZ: Reminds me of buying my Honda. When they tried to sell me the maintenance package, I said "Is your car not reliable?" Long story short my wife teamed up with the sales lady to buy the maint package. Never again!
