I was on vacation last week. We were camping so I hadn't played an amp for almost 10 days. I got home Saturday night had a headache, so as badly as I wanted too, I didn't play. Last night when we got home, I went in to play for a while and I was once again just blown away by the Archon. I was playing it through the Zbest cab which has a V30 and a Warehouse ET65. That cab sounds incredible and unless I'm going for very aggressive tones, I'm preferring it over the other cabs because of the speaker combination. 2 V30s is better for very aggressive tones. For even hard rock, I prefer the V30/ET65 mix. Since I hadn't been home for a while, I turned it up a bit louder than usual. I know I rambled about this amp for months after getting it, but after a few days away, it's clearly still the best amp I've ever heard. I've talked for 2 years about tube swapping... trying EL34Bs, swapping a few pre-amp tubes... but when the thing sounds this good, why bother? Also, I seem to turn some knobs almost every time I play the amp. More mids and bottom one time, less the next. More treble and presence one time, less the next, etc. It's not like this thing has a sweet spot and one great tone. The gain knob is from 8:00 to 11:00 and almost never the same as the time before. And ALL of it sounds GREAT!!! I know I will eventually swap some tubes to see if it's even better, but for now, still blown away every time I turn it on! With the range and quality of tones I get out of this amp every time I play it, I can confidently say "this is the amp I've wanted for my whole life." Just absolutely killer amp for me and what I play.
