    Solid state amps

    The only solid state amp model we have at the moment is the Jazz 120. Say I wanted to approximate another solid state amp, should I start with that model? Are there dials that I can turn to "minimize" the tube qualities of one of the clean amp models? Should Cliff add a crystal lattice knob in...

    Are there any FRFR solutions out there that can compete with a 2x12 + power amp?

    OK, let me re-phrase that.. Part 1... Curious to know if there are any FRFR solutions (passive or active) that can compare to a 2x12 cab + power amp (either valve or solid state)?? Part 2.. Those of you that can speak from experience, how does it compare tonally? And volume-wise? Thanks!

    Anyone using the Matrix CFR12 with their AX8/Axe FX? How does it compare to the FR212?

    Looking for a Practice Amp Idea For Jams And Smaller Gigs

    I'm looking for ideas on a practice amp, that works well with the AX8, I can't afford an FRFR. I think I actually prefer Solid state, something with an a effects return so I can bypass the amp color.

    How do you find your Matrix FR212 + Matrix power amp?

    After having played a handful of gigs in recent times, I'm starting to realize why some guys prefer to use an FRFR solution. At present, I'm using/carrying from gig to gig: 3RU rack (Axe FX + 1RU wilress unit) 2RU rack for my VHT 2/50/2 power amp. Mesa 2x12 vertical cab 2 x guitars Plastic...

    Who reckons their s.state power amp gives the same 'punch' as..

    Let me rephrase the question.. Who believes a solid state power amp (be it a Matrix or Behringer etc) can produce the same punch/air movement/'feel' etc etc, as their valve power amp/valve head through the same cab?? We're not talking FRFR here guys, we're talking non-FRFR. Curious to know...
