Re: Dr. Z amps
It's awesome! I don't have a proper setup to record from a cab - I usually only record direct for some quick ideas. But to be honest - it's an amp that has to be heard in person. I saw a lot of youtube clips before going to check it out, and I was like "meh" . . . . but I went anyway. Man it sounded unreal in person. I tried it with my Dad's 60th tele, and it was incredible. Today I played around with it with an Epi Sheraton II with classic 57's, and it also sounded great.
Funny thing is - I plugged in my Way Huge Green Rhino - and it sounded all gainy and delicious, but it kinda killed the vibe a bit. I may be looking for a more transparent overdrive. But I've never had as much fun playing through a clean amp. I'm amazed at the sustain, even at such low gain settings, and the dynamics are excellent.
I may have grown up a bit in the last little while . . . I'm already itching to try a guitar with P90's through this beast.
