    dont seem like a lot of you folks like modern marshall tones.
    i would think that at some point the older tones would get boring
    hearing over and over again. marshall has to keep up with the times
    or they are gonna get left behind.

    Boss Heavy Metal - I have one that was thrown in on a trade. It sucks, even more when the knobs turned all the way up per Swedish Death Meatl.

    Also ring modulators, envelope filters and the band ABBA.

    That’s funny. I had a PV Special 150 that I used with an HM-2. It was used to play those specific tracks on Momentary Lapse of Reason. I used it for other things but it didn’t inspire.

    It’s a bit more like a Guv’nor considering it’s hard-clipping LEDs, but I get the point.

    The Line6 DT25 is killer. I play mine as much as I play my Plexi clone.
    Re: Floyds. Yes, they are complex and finicky setup for sure. BUT, the tuning stability is insane. Among my tele, strat, and les pauls...it is the only one that is in tune every single time I pick it up, and it survives furious dive bombs without a single tuning hitch. If anything, a tiny touch of the fine tuners is all it takes.
    Re tuning...I agree with the exception of The Swords use of C tuning. Age of Winters is killer. No harmonic squeals, either :)
