Indeed, DJ, and please tell us what you thought of the Colonial, Vernon!
First impressions on the Colonial and Driftwood; both great!
I like how the Colonial does that raw, breathing but not screaming Marshall tone (woody/organic, couldn’t describe it better Monkey_Man ) - it reminds me of the Splawn Hot Rod. It’s great for the low grind hair metal that I love like Ratt and Motley Crue.
The Driftwood is REALLY heavy and thrashy. Good for Racer X metal but a bit too much gain for my taste (and sloppy playing). It is a nice metal pack, probably the nicest I’ve come across.
I’m most satisfied with the Guytron pack - three profiles out of this pack made it on to my KPA!! (Clean, Ch2, Ch3 type). It instantly felt like home to me, very very rich in harmonics and kind to my playing style. Lots of sustain, very nice cranked Marshall/ADA MP-1 type tone.
Update: You guys reaaallllly need to check out the Guytron pack if you haven’t already. Just had a chance to crank it in rehearsal and it’s incredible
