i remember when i got my first valve amp about 5 years ago i had such a shock to my playing i'd been using a JEM7VWH w/Evo's into a Peavey Bandit 112.

I got a Marshall JCM900 and it totally changed my sound, everything had dynamics and it wasnt compressed and I could hear tonnes of mistakes in my playing..

Then I got a ENGL and that made me realise ever more.. then i got BKP's and once again.. realised, your gear really can hide your mistakes, i play a strat with VHII and Irish Tours and they dont hide anything.. and it's brought my playing on a mile... just wish it'd happened years ago.

but this is why a lot of people like EMG81's w/ 5150's etc.. coz they're a shed load easier to shred on than a set of Irish Tours into ENGL Screamer.. but i'll tell u if u can get it clear clean and tight on my setup it really does help.

rant over...


I'm not so sure how exactly a JCM 900 covers mistakes more than an ENGL and not less, but you basically said it right on.

The way I see it, if the clean tone is too compressed with the volume down, the pickups are useless.
Real men turn their volume to 11!

Don't mean to sound negative, but this may be a problem with expectations.


I usually find myself pondering the same thing, but in some instances it was wired as a single coil...

It should sound like a good mean humbucker in the end.
