I am really digging mine. I'm actually thinking about selling my ZLUX as I don't think I need the power. The Cure has such a great smooth overdrive I just seem to be falling in love with.

....its an amp that takes some time to get to know...that will cause dome people to make hasty assessments.....especially if they own other amps that they have dialed in and start making comparisons....A ghia is an amp that you can figure out in a flash...the Cure not so much...the volume/master/level with the added boost/bypass configuration is a pretty new and fresh layout...at least for me it is.....and it yields a whole lot of sonic possibilities....not everyones cuppa...
.....of course like any amp once you've found your sweet spots its all good.....i personally could be happy using this amp with the master and level cranked and just use the volume...its more or less like a 60's F****r amp set that way...(with a mid control and a boost that you don't have to touch either).....but its got a whole lot more than that going on and thats not gonna work for everyone....
....and yes i've been known to sell some mighty fine amps in the past....rarely was it because they were not working for me...just because i like trying new stuff out.....i think theres a bunch of folks like me out there....
....he had a stance....major attitude...vibrato you coulda thrown a cat through....a little much....a little heavy....i guess the world just wasnn't ready....

The same sort of thing happens with cars too. More and more dealerships are letting folks bring them back and switch around cars. A different business model for sure and a different time. People are fickle.

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!
