Yes I did it!!
I had too much GAS recently, and on top of that, my 12 y old Hughes & Kettner Attax 80 is almost dead! (noisy knobs, soud cuts,...)
So I was looking for some new equipment for my home practicing and recording..... Time for buying gear, instead of a new guitar (I have already 17!)
After much research, I finally chose this great combination:
- H&K Tube Edition 20W
- a Damage Control "Solid Metal" Tube high gain disto pedal
That will result in a 3 channel all tube amp!
For clean and crunch, I'll use the 2 channels of the H&K, creamy tone, very usable. The H&K lead channel will be great for Satriani stuff and that kind of sounds...
Then for brutal disto, I'll use the DC pedal with its own EQ, for modern high gain OOMPH OOOMPH!!
I can't wait to have it!
I think it's a better option that to have a full tube combo at home that is too powerful at 50 or more Watts...
We'll see.. I'll post a review of it if someone is interested....
