You want hell? Buy a madison :)

I had a few posts up here a while back...not about to dicide on what amp I wanted to get....I tried a bunch of diffrent amps, JSX, HD-147, XXX, 5150, 6105, Mesa Tripple and Mesa Double, just to name a few....Then TOTALLY on luck I decided to go with this amp that I had never played or heard of before....OMFG! This amp is Killer,.,...The tones are nice thick, Heavy and at the same time....very Clear as far as the notes go....I have yet to find a tone that I cannot get with this and the BBE Sonic Maximizer that i have running in the Effects Loop.....Just a word to all of those who have heard of the amp and never got any word on how it perfoms....Dude....Its one of the best amps I have ever heard....They did Take out the contour controls because they said that it was causing some issues with the tone at huge volumes. Below is a pic of me with my new baby!!!! I LOVE MY MADISON DIVINITY! The cab is a MAG-412 with symphony speakers.

http://img122.imageshack.us/img122/6827/hpim01540lu.jpg

Madison from what i know of is a fairly new company but they are sweeping the deathmetal underground clean. People have been tradining in thier ENGL powerballs for this damn thing....I now know why....When I first got it i though....crap this thing sucks....then i let my Cab Break in and get rid of the "new speaker crips sound" after playing loud for 4 or 5 hours...then It just hit me like a frieght train....god....this thing is killer. Here are the specs on the head:

3 Channel 100 Watt All Tube head
4 Electro Harmonix EL34 Power Tubes
2 Electro Harmonix 12AX7 Preamp Tubes
2 Electro Harmonix 12AT7 Preamp Tubes
Triple speaker outputs (4, 8 or 16 ohm selectable)
High and low gain inputs
Spring reverb
Effects loop in and out with slectable lvl boost
The Madison logo on the front lights up blood red when you crank this puppy

Elegance Channel:
High, Mid, Low Lvl and boost (the boost is like a TS-7 in the front of the clean channel)
Edge 1:
High, Mid, Low, Contour, Edge and Lvl
Edge 2:
High, Mid, Low, Contour, Edge and Lvl
Master:
Volume, Reverb

The Clean channel is named Elegance...and it is very elegant...every clean and snappy. Edge 1 sounds like a dual recto and edge 2 sounds like a tripple rectro. The boost on the clean allows you to get great blues and southern rock tones, while the edge1 is good for HEAVY Riffs and Rythem, And the edge 2 is a VERY hot lead channel that i also use for some rythem work Every aspect of this amp is VERY articulate. No matter how much gain you dial in you can hear every note clear as a bell.

Im running this with a BBE Sonic Maxmizer inthe EFX Loop and a Ibanez S1520BP with a EMG-81 and EMG-85 wired at 18-volts. And yes I was crouched down infront of my amp but it is still a beast....a standard size Cab but the head is HUGE!!!!

The whole Amp: Cab,Head and Foot switch was around 1700 but worth EVERY penny.

Which Divnity did you play on? they have recently revamped thier amps like 2 weeks ago....i got one of the newer versions....much tighter soud then i used to have....and with a BBE Sonic Maximizer and BBE Compressor....I have not ever found another map that gets "that" tone...I have always been looking for "that tone" and i have found it even at huge volumes....its just still crushes, sings, and screams.

Cool info man. But uh... considering what you look like in that picture, you should really stop starving yourself just to save up for a new amp, that's not healthy man.

Imo, sounds more like any ordinary guy who has just bought a new piece of gear and had gotten into the "harmony-central syndrome", keeps telling himself how awsome his new stuff are

that was my first impression. especialy with listing all the specs for no apparent reason at all. would you spend your 2nd and 3rd post at some random forum telling everyone you bought a new amp?
