    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.

    your comment has your answer. go out and buy a 5150III. if you like the 005 you will love the amp. I have a 50w version, had the 005 and the LBX. you can't go wrong with this amp if you are into high gain.

    I figured that's why Mama always called the chimney sweep every January

    This may sound surprising but I feel the same way about any amplifier including my 2550 series.

    Before this turns into a suggestion box, what kind of music are you into and whats the type of tone your chasing ? You've had quite the collection over the years, maybe your just missing one of your past favorites? My two cents.

    What amps have you owned, what guitars do you use, what type of music do you like?
