This past Saturday i got to play my new Stang Ray for the 1st time at a gig. I have to say, it sounded AWESOME!!! I didn't even use my Brake Lite. I had the volume on 1-1/2 and that was plenty loud! Everyone in the band LOVED it and said it sounded crystal clear compared to my old amp. (Peavey Classic 30) My Boss Dual OD pedal sounded good through it too! I will be getting a new OD pedal though. That amp just kicks A$$!!! Here's a pic of my road case that matches my amp. My new nickname for my Stang Ray is THE BIG RED MACHINE!!!

Congrats! The Ray is an amazing amp - the greatest clean tone I've ever heard. That's why I bought one. Over time you are really going to dig it even more. Did you play in the Low or Hi input? Did you use the loop at all? Just curious how others use their Rays.

Greg, I tried using the effects loop when I brought the amp home, but I didn't really hear any difference so I'm just running my delay/reverb in the front. I also used both high/low input, but at the gig I used high. I need to mess with the brake lite some more. I haven't really discovered everything that amp is capable of yet. It's so addicting just plugging into that beast! It's like a drug! LOL Jason

Jessml02, You will not be disapointed in the Ray, It will Get the Same tones with say a Timmy and any other ODPedal But The wreck probably wont clean up Like the Ray Does, If I had the $$$ For the Wreck in Silver Id go for it, But for alot less $$$ The Ray will stand strong next to the Wreck with Ease, By the way Congrats on the Awesome RED RED RED!!! I have lots of Red Myself it screams Tone! ;D

Yea I here ya Jamie! I've always been a red man myself. And it looks like I'll be adding more red to the collection! I just got a StangRay 2x12 w/ blues, red w/ 20th ann. badge. Should be here next week. I will probably be replacing one of the blues with a gold though! Gotta have some gold in there!
