Been missing this tone ever since partying ways with my old Bassman 135. So I decided to check the CL, and Merry Christmas to me, $375. Plugged it up last night to put it through the paces, such a luscious tone. A tone I prefer to either the SVT or the V4B. So depending on the band, venue, and volume needed I can use either the Bassman or my GK 400RB-IV. Great volume and it sounds so awesome with a fuzz pedal. My plan is to use my GK with the louder rock band, and the Bassman with my pop band with the older guys.
