    If you like the HBE, I'd recommend toying around with the Engl Savage model. I owned a Savage for years, one of my all-time favorite amps, but never jived with the Axe version. Then Quantum 7 came around, and now it sounds exactly like the real thing. I used the HBE previously, but replaced it with the Savage in all of my relevant patches.

    I always lower the negative feedback as well to somewhere between 4 and 5. Friedman amps are a bit strange because the negative feedback is taken off the speaker jack instead of one of the transformer taps. The matching cabs are 16 ohms but if you use an 8-ohm cab you'll get 30% less feedback.

    Does this apply to all Friedman's amps?

    I've played around with negative feedback before and I just leave it at default. I also run a TS808 block in front of it, all the time, which changes the low end response.

    A recto oversized 4x12 (8 ohm) would sound hooooooge i bet, less negative feedback more resonance

    i'd be interested in hearing a worship team that is playing through a BE and a schecter ! The team at my church is all a bunch of saved metalheads and punk rockers but we still run the typical Matchless / Morgan stuff.

    That is funny!
    I run a version of Moke's Plexi, that I love, works very well and covers a lot of ground.
    Today I was listening to his JCM-800 preset. There is a lot of goodness in there!
    So that is on the list to get ready for this coming weeks service.

    What can I say? I try to play the part as much as possible, so I do use other amps from time to time, and I do rotate through guitars (strat, Ibanez V, Les Paul). But I love a wall of powerful distorted guitar when it’s called for.

    My mom played a church pipe organ for 60 years, and she would blast that thing when appropriate. Glorious!! She never understood electric guitar, but I understood where I got my taste for power from.

    LOL. A pipe organ can knock you on your ass at least half a dozen ways. In the hands of someone who really knows what they're doing — and when to do it — it can be gloriously devastating.
