I while back I asked here if anyone was using their Achons with single coil guitars. Seeing as it's billed as a high gain amp I would assume most use humbuckers with it. I lean towards the cleaner side of things playing a Telecaster most of the time. On paper this is not the amp for me but.... I bought the 50 watt combo today. It turns out the clean channel is pretty incredible which I'm sure many of you know. I was considering a Fender Deluxe Reverb but I couldn't pass up a great price on a NOS Archon. It might be lacking reverb but I can make up for that with a pedal. I gained quite a lead channel that I can use on those few times that I want to pummel people into submission. Most like likely I will live on the clean channel and use pedals for most sounds. Unfortunately I have none right now as I sold everything when I went down the modeling rabbit hole. This Archon is my first step in simplifying my rig. I'm not sure where to start for pedals but I'm sure it will be fun. I did have an opportunity to play some high gain with my PS CU22 at close to stage volumes today and could see how that would be addictive. I don't think I'll change the speaker in the combo but I may add a closed back cab for a different sound. I blame the all enablers here for the purchase.
