Well, yeah. Probably the best Billy-In-A-Box I've tried, and I've tried a bunch of them. Run it with humbuckers into something Marshall-y set at just-past-breakup and you'll nail La Grange and the whole shooting match. Billed as an Expandora clone (not round, though, unfortunately) and that rings pretty true, assuming the Reverend ever actually recorded using an Expandora--who knows? Wild, spitty clipping with all three switches in the "up" position, tight, fat and nasty with the middle switch up and the other two down. It's a keeper--only question is which board to put it on. Also, why is it called the Kilt? No frickin clue.
Z-Lux combo: red/ZW Cure Friedman Mini Dirty Shirley and matching cab
A dozen other Z amps/cabs I've sold or traded. I may have a problem--but I'm an excellent customer.

Rev definitely used the Expandora, and I’ve read he sometimes used a few of them cascading into each other. Glad to hear the Kilt is a winner!

I didn’t love the distortion on the Kilt V1, but I’m more of an OD guy. I did however love the boost. Ended up with the minibomb, so good. JHS is pretty smart, and clearly know what they are doing, but it’s a shame that V2 dropped the boost.
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.

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!
