    Thread makes me want one badly.

    I had the EQ but TBH never used it. Never needed to as it sounded perfect without it on. I would still get the EQ just because.

    I used to completely max the Master volume. If not it was always at least 75%. Definitely a power amp favored guitar amp.

    I have never played the 50w but am curious. I just bought a Kemper setup but if I decide to sell that I will either get another 100CL or MI Megalith.

    They are badass! The D60 is different but equally sick. Now imagine those same attributes you like about the 100CL, up the articulation and organic nature of the gain structure by about 20% and add the most gut punching chest pounding thump you could ever imagine and you'd be playing a Wizard MCII. Hands down the most articulate, open, organic, raw, pissed off amps I've ever owned. I recently sold it because I couldn't live with having that much cash tied up in one amp.

    Fryette and Splawn are the only amps that even come close and for the difference in price I find they win.

    The general consensus is to have the MV at 2:00 or so to get the best tone.

    Another thing I should suggest is plug this into a Fat Bottom cab. The FB's are designed for this head and they absolutely destroy. Hell the FB's sound amazing with just about any amp but the Pittbulls especially.

    I feel your pain brother. Nothing worse then waiting and then having to wait even more.

    First world problems are a good thing to have right. I am excited to hear this cab with the F70s. I was hoping to hear it with a few of my go to amps, but I have sold them off since ordering the cab. Do still have a 50CL pitbull and a Splawn QR arriving.

    How I have my channel volumes set on mine I adjust the master for how loud I want it to be and it sounds pretty much the same wherever I set it so might just be how they set their volumes.

    That being said the UL I have is the best practice amp I've ever used, it sounds amazing at very low volume.

    Congratulations Chris! Killer amp right there.

    That's the one amp I regret getting rid of, my Pittbull UL. I will own another.
