Thank you for the info... I was looking at both models and they looked so close I couldn't really tell.
I am kind of torn between one of these or the HX/DA. being an old ABB/Gvt't Mule/TTB player it's kind of down to the HXDA or a "C". and no I can't afford both 8)
As someone stated above... decisions decisions....
The HXDA is a different beast altogether from the C and the H.
First, it's a single channel amp. It's got more hand wiring inside. Its Cinemag transformer was cloned from Duane Allman's actual "Live at the Fillmore" amp (in fact, the circuitry was as well), and with the switches in the "DA" positions, it's a real-deal, fire-breathing Marshall Plexi Superbass from that era.
However, it's got a couple of sweet tricks up its sleeve.
The "HX" positions were cloned from Eric Johnson's Plexi, that was supposed to have been owned by Hendrix. And in fact, it does that thing that old Plexis used to do, in spades.
But the really cool thing is that you can set some of the switches DA, and some HX, and create your own ideal Plexi. Instead of blending the Plexi's channel inputs via jumpers, it's done internally, so there are two bendable gain controls.
I love mine, and it replaced a very fine Two-Rock and a Mesa Mark V. In fact, I had a session guy I use over at my studio today, and he was marveling over how it sounded with his Tele.
There's no downside, but you should be aware that running a single channel Plexi style amp means you set it up differently than you would a channel switcher, and you get the gain or clean it up via your guitar's volume control.
