Trying to learn Logic Pro X here, coupled with a new input mixer (Apogee Quartet) so I figured I'd grab a backing track and lay down some guitar. Holy crud - I am rusty, my timing is off, and I can't hear squat. So let the listener beware. There ARE clams in here, certainly.
I had the TSB engaged for this, so the tone controls don't really matter except to say the midrange was dimed. Preamp at 2 o'clock, power amp at 2 o'clock, 20 watt setting, no attenuation. Guitar wide open on the bridge pup. FYI it sounds a lot better through headphones than it does through PC speakers. My guitar comes in at measure 4 after the canned guitar intro.
Logic Pro is bizarre - you don't export audio, you "bounce" it. Wait - what? That's why this is entitled:

Great playing and tone there Steve. Rusty?.... You're playing better than me on my best day. Interesting thing to my ear is that the amp had a more British flavor than I expected. I know the Les Paul contributes to that , but that had more bark than what I've been hearing out there - which I really like. Thanks for this Steve.

You know, this is one of the reasons I immediately jumped on this amp. A few years back I happened to hear my old band with a different guitarist, and he was getting that type of tone in spades. I expected to see a small Marshall or derivative up on stage there, but was shocked to see he was playing straight into a Deluxe Reverb. His guitar was an old Les Paul with P-90's on it, and I've never forgotten that. But have you priced any of those 50 year old Deluxes lately? Yikes!
So when I started seeing comparisons to the Deluxe I started thinking I had to have one of these. Why it took me this long to try the Les Paul I can't say - the Strat was so enchanting I guess. But THIS is that tone I heard that night.
Being able to get this kind of tone, but also dial back and get those fat Strat tones with one amp is very exciting.

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!

capofirstfret: I've experienced tube rattle in two different amps that I've had. In both cases I bought the rubber rings from Eurotubes and it fixed it for me.

GuitarZ: Idiot! I wanted to put a little air on my Zoom H1's circuit board to clear out any residual Deoxit from spraying the input connector. Guess which can I picked up to spray. Yup! Not the air can.
