    You guys are brutal!

    As for amps, they all did sound the same (tube amps that is) until Howard Dumble and Randall Smith came up with cascading gain stages and channel jumping.

    Virtually every boutique amp builder who's achieved success/recognition has done so by stealing Dumble's intellectual property (which is neither Fender or Marshall). It's more than strange.

    I've tried many different brands, not even just amps but guitars too. I used to hate Fender and Gibson because I thought they were overrated and I wanted to try some of the newer and better brands at a fraction of the cost - I lost thousands of dollars. The only off brand that has stuck around in my arsenal is a Blackstar HT-1R because it is the ultimate late night/practice amp and ironically enough, Blackstar was founded by 2 ex-Marshall engineers.

    I can tell if it sounds good or not without relating it to experience. I think it's mainly because as a guitarist, I suck. You're probably right because I assume that you assume the guitarist has some skill and knowledge. So they would compare. Whereas I have neither and cannot compare.

    as much as I like Queen, but IMO Brian May's throaty tone sucks.

    I am today,of the opinion,it is counterproductive to *compare* sonic qualities,if you are a musician. Listen and judge on its own merits.This applies to everything,amps,pedals,guitars....99% of the time there is no *better*...just different.

    just got a Mooer pedal(ensemble king chorus) from the depths of Hunan province china...its subtlely different and stands on its own very nicely.its different,in a very good way.Musical.

    My lug'oles have always loved 6-string electric geetars playing through bass amps, from Fender Bassman to Marshall bass amps like the 1962/1964 Bass/Lead units, or sweetest of all, their 1992 Super Bass. But then - my ears are fu
