Not a ton of talk around here on this amp. I know, I know... there's many newer kids on the block these days, plus the whole EF86 tone-stack in the preamp was a bit controversial and whatnot; I sense this is a "love it or hate it" kind of amp. But let me just say I'm definitely in the "love it" camp.
Maybe it's just the way it works with a Tele (that is to say, perfectly) or perhaps it's the big bass & relaxed mids that I tend to prefer in an amp's sonic signature. Either way, I'm really digging this amp's clean-to-hairy-to-nasty capabilities. Wonderful little amp—it's a shame that it had to get discontinued. I guess it'll just be my little secret weapon now.
PS. Have I mentioned that the PPI-MV is perfect? Halfway up, with a 1×12 greenback cabinet.. you can hit all your tones on the Volume knob and not blow the walls off. Brilliant.

i got one again and think it is the right move for what i am playing. i have a monza but it is in storage a long way away. now this amp with a greenback has sort of a "clean" marshall tone going one. had one when it first came out and thought at the time is was not loud enough but not anymore. with a les paul it grinds like allmans at fillmore east if you ask me. very percussive of course, good for cutting through on blues stuff. i love the boost pedal, just kick it in for lead. i am glad i could get one.

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.

Joey Beverages: hayesgary307 try a Z 210 or Z 410 with Galaxie ... also, yes the G1265 is most tasty and excellent

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!
