The UPS man delivered about 9:45 this AM. I had her plugged in and up and running by 10 AM. Finally had to break away after 3 hours for a break. So far I am just scrolling through presets and trying the stock effects with the presets. I have done a little tweaking just to see how intuitive things are. Some points: I am perfectly happy. Does everything I hoped. Some of the concerns I had have been relieved. The Plexis sound damn good, much better than some of the demos which left me concerned. I even made a few tweaks just for giggles and the tweaks made the Plexis sound even better - much to my surprise. I totally understand why Frank did not keep the Champ clone he bought as a grab and go amp. I could probably get along on the 5F1 model alone. It sounds as good as ANY Champ I have ever heard. The Alto TX8 sounds really good so far. Works perfectly for my needs for right now. I started goofing around and started to get a little loud (for me) and it just sounded even better. Happy, relieved, content. I am not ready to declare it able to walk on water just yet...but I can see that potential. The stock JTM 45 preset just about does walk on water, though, as far as I am concerned. The first preset I tried was the 'Machine Gun' preset. I was almost stuck there all day. I absolutely love the stomp box set up. It is perfect for me. I have been able to use the basic controls to make some tweaks and adjustments without being connected to a computer. The DC 30 is particularly good. Made me feel like I need to learn some Brian May. This little box brings enough value to easily justify the cost; the amp models, the pedal models, the models of unicorns - things which mere mortals can't even access... Back down the rabbit hole for a while. Gotta download the manual and learn how to start making and saving some custom presets/scenes/pedal settings, etc.
