Stock, hated it. Modded, hated it, 100 watts, 50 watts, greenbacks, 75s, 30s, wgs 65s, ev12ls, 2x12, 4x12, recto cab, ported lynch cab, pedals up front, pedals out back, vtg tubes, modern tubes...loud, quiet...its all the same...stiff, not enough gain, too bright, uninspiring. I got a mooer 5150, plugged in the return and love it. Nicely eqd, warm, nice sqwish, great tone and feel for me. I love this pedal and my eleven rack and even a line 6 gearbox running direct. Thats what l need to be inspired...lm guessing its something to do with eq, and cab sims. The only other amps that ever inspired me was an original jube head and a tweaker 15 Just bummin...this white 2203x makes a killer sounding and looking tube poweramp...but cant hold its own in the preamp dept.
