Has anyone played both the Monza and Nova? I'm curious how the gain compares between the two.
I have listened to the demos online, but would like to get someone's personal experience with both.
I have a Monza non-MV 1x12 combo with Brake-Lite and really like the high-gain sounds I can get from it using any type of guitar/pickups (Teles to LPs).
I mainly play at home and right now my main clean amp is a SF DR (with JJ 6V6's), and for dirt/gain I am partial to my Down Brownie and Monza. The Down Brownie being more controllable with the MV, but different style of gain.
I have OD/distortion pedals, but I prefer the sound of plugging in straight to the amp. Also not a fan of A/B/Y pedals...no matter what they claim, they all seem to lose something in the signal (Fulltone, Radial, Whirlwind, etc.).
I like the idea of channel switching from clean to gain, and the fact that there is a MV on the Nova. If it has enough gain (similar to Monza) this could be my perfect amp!
It probably won't be until the weekend but I'll try and do a comparison.

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!

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!
