I'm a current Maz18 owner looking for Bluesbreaker/JTM45 tone at moderate volume levels. Will the Remedy get me there? I know the Doctor has a 6L6 based amp, but the 1/2 power switch of the Remedy looks to be a key feature for me. Any opinions on this would be appreciated.
Remedy was my first thought. Not sure about moderate volume levels though. Clapton really cranked that Marshall back then.
As I recall his tone was a lot of power amp gain with Mayall using the 2x12 combo. Studio volume must have been pretty loud.

I had a 1997 Reissue Bluesbreaker, best sounding amp I've ever had. Yes it was loud but not THAT loud, (only 30 watts) and I could set the two volumes on 4 and use an overdrive pedal and get ultimate tone. To my ears that amp has qualities of a Fender amp in it, but with Marshall edginess, and that's what I was wondering about the Remedy. Are those qualities in there?

One extra point of consideration. I used Alnico Golds for that track, but that was before you could get Creambacks. I've seen a lot of comments here that lead me to believe a Creamback or pair in a closed back cab gets you all the way there.
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.

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!
