Anyone have any experience with these?

I've read they are up there with Soldanos in terms of quality build and tone. The clips sound great. The versatility without losing tone integrity is awesome.

I haven't received a reply from Elmwood. I'm wondering if the EQ is pre-distortion or post-distortion?

I'm primarily interested in using one of these to compliment the Soldanos for more vintage-like rhythm clean/blues tones while also having the option for the Elmwood to be my main "go to" amp. If the EQ is pre-distortion then I should also be able to add mid-spiked distortion tones to my arsenal. I may also try Tung-Sol 6V6s in it if possible.

Got a reply. Elmwood says their EQs are post-distortion. Hmm..

To bad guitar pickup makers don't show the frequency curve of their pups.

I'm sure there's a pup out there that would drive the preamp at the frequency you like.

Why don't you just run an EQ pedal in front of the amp? I owned an M90. Great amp. A bit more open and agressive than the M60, but also voiced a little more to the modern side. That said, the Elmwoods have Fat and Edge knobs on the back of the amps that control the lows, mids and highs of the power amp. Between that and the very effective preamp EQ, I could get plenty of mids. Plus they have VERY usable master volumes.

Just curious - why'd you sell the M90? (I had been considering it as my next amp - although my Bogner Ecstasy does the smooth gain pretty damn well).

I wouldn't really call the M90 "smooth". It's definately less compressed than the M60. I didn't necessarily get rid of the M90 for any particular reason but a trade opportunity for an SLO (and some other stuff) presented itself and I took it. I had been wanting to try an SLO for a very long time.

That said, the M90 was probably voiced a little too much on the modern side of things for my taste. It's an extremely aggressive and tight sounding amp, though the clean channel boosted did the AC/DC type crunch thing very well and is a great platform for pedals. From the clips I've heard, the M60 is smoother and can get woodier tones, maybe due to the EL34s vs. the KT88s in the M90.
