    Got me a custom triple-multi back in mid 2011. It was just before they hiked the price so even with the black-tolex front and all black vents it was under 2k.

    Yes it's tighter and can be really bright for sure if you need it to be. I really like that aspect when it comes to vintage and raw modes too, however I still like using a boost with it to shape the EQ and attack.

    It's still an awesome amp without any boost, and it's about perfect like that for most stuff, but the boost can add that hint of sizzle and slop I go for sometimes while still remaining very fast feeling. The amp's gain up high can get all that but the lows start dragging just a bit. Depends on the pickups too obviously.

      ▲ ▲ ▲ This. As long as I could play it good and loud, that would do for me.

      Great core tone, sweet sustain, excellent touch-responsiveness and a broad spectrum of cleanup.

      After all, nothing was specified about portability, roadworthiness, or volume constraints.

        a pro reverb on 8 with celestions is gonna be way louder than i could use at most gigs but that tone would get me though most things

          It does to me because I had just played Santana's at the Plant about 1994 and immediately went out to the stores looking to find something that sounded like it. The Dual Recto was the closest at the time. It just didn't clean up when I backed off the volume. But it howled like the afterburner of a jet, which is what the broken in straight cab with the 100w head into it sounded like.

              That's just it, I don't just like ridiculous high gain. Or just clean. I like everything in-between. Along with delay, modulation and wah.

                This new Boogie Mark V amp I got goes to both extremes (pristine to full nuclear) most functionality best for in between - -it's a good candidate for a versatile desert island amp with clean, OD and distortion without pedals

                      Bought this one from Brad Whitford. Got in a financial mess and unfortunately had to sell it to save my house with a few other pieces.

                        The Prosonics were pretty unique amps for Fender. Bruce Zinky creations with a triple rec set up and 60 watt Class A/B normally. They had really sweet warm cleans and a firebreathing high gain. Owned a number of them over the years. the Red one off was a 100 watt Prosonic Tonemester hybrid with a Prosinic combo pre section and a Tonemaster power section. Zinky hand built it in the Custom Shop and gave to Brad Whitford. I bought it directly from Brad still had the Property of Aerosmith inventory sticker on the back when I sold it.. May well have been the best sounding high headroom clean amp I have ever heard.
                        Recorded the guitar tracks here with it at a local studio using my Washburn USA MG 102.

                          Well that sounds like something I'd like. I will have to try one of them out.

                            For the purposes of this thread, you have to dial that bad boy in to one tone, and never touch the settings again

                              Cleans are not pristine they are warm round and have some nice breakup when you dig in very expressive in particular in the 30 watt class A mode. The gain side is a little different to dial in for a Fender as it has 2 separate gain controls. Takes a little time to understand but once you understand them they are fine amps! Have owned a number of them 2 combos and at least 3 heads over the years.
                              Here is a clip live with my true LO SN CS 1 /12 combo. https://app.box.com/shared/k8lvjisore. Wish I would have kept that one in particular.
                              They were all 2/10 combos as production amps but Bruce did a few from the Arizona Shop as 1/12's as that was what he wanted the amp to be as the designer.
                              Another live clip different outdoor event recorded with a little Sony personal recorder setting in a chair front row running the red 100 watt Prosonic head a Avatar 2/12 and my amp was not miced. https://app.box.com/s/os9ra20ogzxs56xo02z1fwxriwf73ncv

                                How many various groups of setting do you need for your main core tone? When you and that core tone and settings you usually would leave the settings as is if you were happy with what you found right?
                                The music business is a cruel and shallow money trench, a long plastic hallway where thieves and pimps run free, and good men die like dogs. There's also a negative side.
