today I spent some time in a local shop testing (my musicman with new ernie ball regular slinky 50 to 105 strings) .. Among the amps I mentioned above a solid state Glockenklang Soul II with a 4x10 Aguilar Cab and a Mesa Boogie Block 750 (tube preamp) with a Mesa Boogie 8x10 Cab came closer to what I described above.
- Glockenklang: very clean powerful but somewhat cold sound tending to be too sharp with the highs; 4 fine & sensible EQ's,
- With the Mesa setup I got the sound I wanted - overal clean with heavy gnarling lows and crispy metallic highs but still a !warm! sound. However, tooo expensive...
I liked the mesa better because of the warmth combined with the rest (well, I actually should have tested the heads with the same cabs - no way, the shop assistant seemed to be too busy ...)
Question: does the Glockenklang Soul II sound similar to the Gallien Krueger 1001RBII?
