Do you still have the Steavens? Almost bought a 50w Poundcake from the 90's.
Yes, pretty cool amp
Yes they sound similar because there is not so much you can do with basic amplification and distortion to a guitar signal, at the end of the day they all share the same root characteristics. The differences matter to musicians more than to listeners, it's cool nonetheless to see a few amps stand out in my own taste.
This is killer Lasse. The Gus G actually sounds great...my vote would go to the Engl Savage.
SLO100 sounds best to me
I know I keep repeating myself when I tell you that the Straight is the best amp Engl ever built.
But it's true.
This is unfortunatley only the 50W head...still blows the feckin poofterball out of the water
I've gone over everything several times and the MESA Dual Rectifier is my favourite. The palm mutes are tight, they cut off very quickly with little bleed into the following note, to my ears they sound half way between chug and scratch but still have a bouncy response. They are also pushed back a bit so the notes/chords on the 5th string sound louder or above the palm mutes giving it a 3D sound.
yeah, I'm in love with that magical amp
I was very suprised how good the Marshall 8100 valvestate sounded. Agree that it's underrated
Thanks for sharing and going to all the trouble to demo these amps! Does anybody know what pickup was used in the DIs? Does Holy Diver mean BKP Holy Divers? Anyway, cool comparisons!
Great Lasse, thanks alot for your Time and effort you put in your work.
They all sound great but that Recto is pure class. They truly are a fantastic creation.
I've always wanted to have a good thrash on an EVH 5150III and the recording of yours sounds nice.
Think it was an 89
Thank's a lot for the job Lasse !
In this time, I rediscover my SAVAGE , I vote for the savage but all the tones was awesome!
added two mode four clips
Thanks for the efforts.Great test. mesa rec. savage. framus .evh .and straight are shining.
