i know all the classic tube amps have their own unique form of distortion, depending on the preamp and tubes used and whatever else. i may have found a good deal on a plexi clone 100 watter, but i’m wondering if it’s really enough to get loud enough and fart the way i want. a la mel schacher, or that jack bruce wail of death he got in live cream shows. tight, gritty but not so overboard that it just sounds like a low tuned guitar. NOT lemmy territory. excellent example is the live grand funk album from 1970. i know he used a west amp, which is probably more similar to the american breeds of tube amps from that period like sunn or fender or ampeg, but west amps aren’t really a common thing.
