    yeah sounds nice...kinda wondering if none of the dudes has ever tried an (for example, sure the list goes on) EVH, since none of them knows an "can do really cleans and heavy rhythm" amp ^^

    from that yt video it sounds a bit like the green channel on the 5150, with more gain by itself...not the clean channel, obvsly

    What i like, my main amp is the 6505, having owned the EVH when it came out, sold it. This amp sounds like the response is there like a ts in front, the initial kick and control while still being strong and thick, not needing to quad track n shit. I cant wait to try it. rarely does an amp intrigue me like this.

    I'm waiting to see if Ola gets one to demo, or one of the shops by me gets one so I can try it before I pull the trigger. Whichever comes first haha

    Honestly to move Tremonti (who imho has always had a great tone) from Mesa is a tough sell. If hes all over this it just may be that good. Ill get pics, vids, and some audio at NAMM for you guys :)

    I'm not sold yet. The tone in the Youtube video is pretty closed IMO. Let's just hope Presence wasn't dimed haha

    I believe this has more to do with Tremonti being a PRS endorser since forever.

    The Bogner has been replaced by a Voodoo V-Rock, and the PRS is in the rig it seems.

    this thing absolutely smokes. tried it out in the store the other day (100w model) with a 7 string and a clean boost in front of it and dialed in a sick modern metal tone with barely any effort. definitely as good as anything else out there for the price. let the GAS begin lol.

    also really want to check out a randall satan but cant find one at any of the stores near me. :confused:
