    Splawn quick rod ?

    So I'm looking at buy a used splawn quick rod. Anyone have any experience with em and likes or dislikes. I have a jvm410/5150iii/dual recto/ and randall v2. Will it be different than any of those or will it be more of the same? Thanks

    So-so for metal, fucking fantastic for blues/cleans.

    They're on the darker Marshall side of things. I didn't really like the one I had in the studio. They're well made, and well be a different flavor from what you have for sure.

    It'd probably rule for 80s George Lynch type stuff, based on my limited experience.

    For a certain type of sound, yes.
    But the quick rod is A LOT more versatile.

    True, but it also does nothing better than several different amps. In a band setting, it paled in comparison to a Stiletto II.

    Get a Budda Superdrive 45 or 80 instead.
