- I have lots of amps, this one is exceptional Review by Bill
Features Value Quality
As far as sound, it was alittle brittle at first but as it warmed up (and as it breaks in) it was sounding killer. I own Dr Z's, Carrs, Bogners, Riveras, etc and this amp really brings something exceptional to the table. Most amps require you to tweek until you find the right EQ. This amp just offers something different but equally nice at each setting. I was worried that this would be like the Carr Hammerhead where you have to have it ear bleed loud to get the tone you want. The lightning has great tone all the way up and alot more headroom than I anticipated from the Youtube videos. These amps are alittle more than Dr Z's but about the same as Carr amps, I don't know why Matchless does not have a higher profile.
