Hey Dave I just wanted to say you did a great job at the 4/4 gig in Buffalo. It was nice to see you kick some ass for about 3 hours that night (Whew,long show!!).

I have a question for ya. I noticed that on the fire garden tour that Steve had used an Egnater Sde-3000. Do you know if he still has that head? I know that was a little before you got with him. Does he still have it? And have you heard it. A freind of mine in Michigan deals with them, but he is about 7 hours away. Have you tried or heard any Egnaters? Thanks!

Hey Nouro..

Thanks for the comments. The Buffalo gig was def. a good one.

The SDE-3000 is an old Roland delay unit. The Egnater heads you're talking about I've never seen or heard. But, I know Bruce Egnater designed that one head for Randall, the modular head.. I played that one and it's killer. I recommend it.

Thanks for setting me stright on the sde 3000. I'm just going to have to find one of those Randalls to try. Hopefully they are compatible with the new mods for the Egnater M4 (newer preamp, but harder to find). It would make sense givin the the Randall model is the RM4. I want that versatility.

BTW, was that a Mesa Stilletto you were using on tour? How did you like those? I'm using a mesa rectoverb right now, but my other guitarists old Marshall tone is killin' mine on the Jake e Lee Badlands tunes. I'm thinking the Egnater mods might equall things out a bit.

Thanks for takin' the time to respond, it's helping me allot!

Hi Andrew.

The Stiletto is nothing like a Marshall. It's not a very high gain amp. Good gain, but not high gain like the Marshall on 10 or a Rectifier. But that's why I like it. Why sound like everyone else?

ehh, I played the trident at our store using a hotplate into a Mesa 4X12 and it sounds to me like a Marshall on steroids. While technically not "high gain" like an Uberschall or the like, the tone was definatley amazing.

Guys I've talked to who have used/heard the amp are calling it the marshall killer. The EL34's certainly lent a vintage JTM sweetness and the spongy setting with a les paul yielded an instant brown tone that would make VH fans drool.

But it offered so much more than the old marshalls. It wasn't a one trick pony. The cleans were great and the overdrive just had so much more massiveness to it and I loved the individual tone shaping switches. I tried it without the hot plate on the full 150watt mode and it was just rediculously loud. Definatly something I'd be interested in owning.
