+1. IMO MG = always lacking some fullness in the sound, no matter how I tweak them (I don't claim to be an EQ master, though). Personally I've been able to tweak the Cubes and achieve better (IMO) sounds. The features and prices are better than the MGs on paper too.Originally Posted by guitardoctor
As for the ones higher up in the line, I haven't played them either, but...

(following is all what I've READ, never had the opportunity or finances to try or conclusively prove.) If you want to play something like jazz (clean tones) on a tube amp, you want something with at least 50 watts (more if you are in a big ensemble, and of course less if you're mic'd, and/or don't have a drummer, etc).
See this thread for instance. Compare a 50 watt tube amp with a Henriksen or an Acoustic Image (SS)? The latter are WAY lighter, and with way less headroom troubles, I'd bet. (not counting price here. Again I think tubes will generally be pricier.)
BUT...from that previous link,
That. That sound difference is the deciding factor, and that is all that is left for me to ascertain where my preferences stand in the tube vs SS question. (And that is why I will be going for a small tube (Solution 18 ) before pulling the trigger on a hulkin' 50-100 watter or something, and may also try/buy a Henriksen at some point.)Originally Posted by mr. beaumont
Cheers, let's wait and see how it goes for all of us.
