I was always one of those people seeing Walter Woods amps being sold, never owning one, but hoping someday I could justify spending that kind of money. You know how it is. You go to eBay and you type in "Walter Woods" or "Fodera" or something just to see what somebody's selling and you keep an eye out just to see how much it goes for. Well, I decided to take the plunge this weekend and spend $2600+ and buy one I saw for sale. Up until now, I've only used 2 amps for the last 2 years: a LMK II and an F-1. The F-1 only lasted about a month before I sold it. It sounded a lot less 'organic' than the LMK, IMHO. I've been mostly happy with the LMK, so naturally I was floored when I plugged the WW into my Epifani 3x10 with my Fender 5 and my Fodera. Wow. Something I've missed since playing Markbass stuff: the bass hit me right in the chest. The LMK has never done it like this. The Woods is loud as hell, and the headroom is awesome. I couldn't help but thump on it, it punched like crazy. Something else I noticed immediately was high end. My tweeter has been maxed since using the LMK. All of a sudden, I have to bring my tweeter level down to 12:00 again. I've enjoyed Markbass stuff alot, but the high end thing (or lack thereof) has always been kind of a pet peeve of mine. It's nice to have my tweeter back in the game again. LOL. I played with the EQ, and confirmed what's already been said: it's subtle and well-voiced, and definitely not as drastic as the LMK's. It's a great-sounding amp when everything is totally flat, and the amp doesn't completely change stripes if I boost a certain area. It has this character that just keeps coming, and it sounds great. One criticism that I've heard before, and confirmed: not the biggest bottom on this amp. That's probably the one area I would give the LMK an edge. The Woods is a 'flatter' sounding amp, and I've found myself coming up to 2 or 3:00 with the bass control to get the 'phat' bottom I'm used to--but the amp always sounds like what it is: a WW, no matter where any pot is on it. I'm lovin' it. IME, it took a minute to find 'my sound' on the LMK, some twiddling of knobs had to take place to get to where I wanted to be. The Woods is as close to plug-and-play as I've experienced, and the sound is worth every penny I paid...and every year I plan on playing through it. I'm lovin' it.
