when did these re-designed blues cubes actually hit the market?
About a year and a half ago
The Blues Cube Artist is without a doubt, one of the best purchases I have ever made.
Whew! You had me going, rad1.
Anyone still following this thread? Wondering about the clean headroom on the Stage? I love tweed sounds but also need some clean for jazzy stuff I'm getting into.
Trying to decide between the Stage and a PRRI. Really don't want to spend the extra for the PRRI though I do love it's cleans
Go test out a Stage and then you'll know.
I tried out a Stage at the music store and was very impressed.
It was an inspiring amp to play.
I put it up against some Quilters and liked it way better.
I put it up against a Fender 68 Deluxe Reissue and I thought it smoked the Fender.
That's just my take on it.
Everyone has their own preferences as to what sounds turn their crank.
I just ordered a BC artist. Should be here next week.
There's plenty of clean headroom - Just set the Power Control up to 60W, and you'll have headroom for days in both the Clean and Crunch channels.
I think you'd be fine. I sold my BC Hot to a jazzer. He tried it out for a good 30 minutes and was confident it would work for him. He said he plays very small venues (community center jams etc), but the Stage has twice the power. I now have a BC Artist and it's got plenty of headroom unless you need to play super, super loud. And as I reported in my thread a few days ago, you could add the Ultimate Blues Tone Capsule, which makes the BC more blackface in tone and gives it a lot more headroom for pristine cleans.
Here are some jazz tones for you:
