Right now my only real amp is my Nomad 100 212. I also run it through a closed back 412, and switch via a MIDI controller and program changes. I'll use the 212 or 412 speakers depending on the effects patch. For something with with lots of flanger or other swirly needs, the open 212 sounds better. Dryer settings favor the 412.

For practice and workshop needs, I have a Tech 21 Trademark 10. Not bad for a tranny.

I'm thinking about adding an EL84 combo later this year. So far, the Lonestar Special is looking pretty good.

AN UPDATE:

Late last month, I added a NOS Blue Angel to my gear ensemble. The Blue Angel will handle my clean sounds.

Hi, musicbox. well, I've never experienced hum or crossover from my morley switch, but i use it to switch between my 2 guitars, not between amps. I have heard thqt using it to split amp signals it could do this. also, I run a noise gate right after the morley and that might get rid of any hum as well.
