I will be doing some upcoming comparisons between my 2009 Splawn Quick Rod and my 2012 Marshall YJM100, and figured I'd post my findings here for anyone interested in the Quick Rod and how the two amps compare (tonally). Although these amps seem much different, as the QR is a two channel amp and the YJM a single (with a boost), they can be dialed to cover very similar tones. To start off, last night I was playing both amps at very low volume and I was getting equally good results with both amps with the YJM EPA very low and the QR loop engaged, and loop level turned down. I will say, if you had an earlier QR (no loop), you would be unable to get a comparable tone to the YJM at these low levels (the loop level is the key). Down the road, I may also post some comparisons between the QR and my Marshall JVM410H if there's any interest. That's all for now.
