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.
