I've heard the new trilogy is in Bb. That might have something to do with it.
Still SWTWC and Alive in Athens sound better that 90% of th Engl recordings I've heard, and that includes Scar Symmetry and their Fireball, IMO.
And there is a Larry on the new one, just mixed with the Engls. Jon was supposedly shopping for a 2nd amp tone for a while there.
But I don't think the Larry sounds $2k+ better than the Engl.
Just like I don't think the Engls sound $1k+ better than a Laney.
