These amps are loud and bright at 1. I owned an early 70s metalface in purple tolex. We called her Barney. It had a sharper sound then my plexi reissue. More of a razorblade distortion rather than a creamy distortion. My friend owned a later pelxi RI and that sort of split the difference between the two sounds. I briefly owned a very late plexi front that was similar to this amp throughout and was very bright clean but smoothed out more turned up all the way. All of these superlead amps made between the 60s and late 80s are different and none of them has been equaled in a mass produced amp since. I'm more of a vox guy, but nothing sounds like these except maybe a laney supergroup. Its a shame so many metalfaces were modded out in the 80s because they are very cool stock. This sound is very much the sound of classic KISS and ACDC, if that's your bag. Tog et the ACDC sounds you need to sue the angus settings. If you try the all knobs on 10 with this the treble will take your head off, an EQ out front is not enough to tame this beast. It won't sound good with the plexi settings either where you turn up all the tone controls and kill the presence. Its just hairier and wilder without the tone shaping. These are getting expensive now :-(
