I have three great amps that I can gig with: Remedy, ZLux and my Wreck. I've been gigging the Z-Lux almost exclusively for the past year. It is so versatile and does everything I need it to do. I love the verb and the trem. I have thought about selling my Remedy, but why? I know I will only regret it.
But....I've been playing the Wreck again and I must say, once again, how much I LOVE this amp. I am seriously thinking about making this the main gigging amp again, at least for the bigger venue's. Maybe I'll just bring a different one every show. The thing about a Wreck and a Z-Lux is that they are very easy to dial in AND there isn't a bad tone in them.
For the fun of it, I read the settings threads and just messed around with some of the other Wreck players favorite settings. And I learned more about this amp. I tried cranking the volume to the 1pm territory. Which is a great tone, but still, I think I prefer the volume somewhere between 10-11:30 for my gigs. No brake lite and no dirt pedals. It just sings in that area and it feels great.
Amen brother...preach! We're headed out for Gallup this morning for a weekend of gigs and the Z-Wreck is tucked safely into its roadcase in the trailer. The only downside of this gig is they monitor volume pretty closely so the Brake Lite will get a workout.
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.

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

The Bad Poodle: This may be a truism... when you work in a corporate structure, the worst decisions always come from the top.

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!
