I am having regrets about selling it last time. I sold it mainly because people have convjnced me that I would have been throwing money at something I wouldnt be sure about. And thus convinced me that I should probably go down the modeller route, for the sake of simplicity. But the more I think about it, the GM40 is still looking like the best option, even though I would have to put a little more into it to get it modded by Kruse. I love the idea of running a cable to the pedal controller, cable to amp and done. Not only that but the built in FX, and ease of use. I need 3 sounds max. And this amp has it all (moreso after the mod anyways). I need a TS boosted distortion for one patch.....that+delay for 2nd patch......and a clean/mod for a 3rd patch. Kruse says his mods will give me everything I want. Better distortion, and a TS style boost. So provided it can, this is my optimal, and quite minimal setup. I dont want to be tap dancing either with stomp boxes, and I dont really want to go down the modeller route because I dont need a thousand effects and have never dabbled with rackmounts and seperate power amps and stuff. Not that I couldnt learn it or enjoy it, but I dont see a need for it. I can get the GM40 for 800, get the pedal for 150 and mod it for 250 and be all set Not bad at all. Right now I have a 6505+ and a VK100 but I dont want to be lugging those around when we start playing out. I use a Boss GT100 and im getting sick of it and the less than optimal OD's in it. So what do you guys think? Does anyone have anything modded from Kruse? (Apart from the recent thread on here showing the poor solder job; I cant imagine all of his work is like that).
