I escaped the Experience relatively unscathed. Fortunately (or unfortunately, depending on how you look at it) work was crazy at the end of last week and through the weekend, so I only had a chance to duck out for a few hours (I'm only 20 minutes or so from the factory.) I had my eye on a couple of guitars on Brent's table, but I wandered around for a bit, sat in on a DG demo and I snoozed and loozed...
I also have been wanting to fill out my PRS amps based on how well the MDT has worked out, and the HX/DA has been on my want list. It had the reputation of getting cleaner than the MDT, as well has having a bit of a wider range of tones in it. So, Brent worked up a great price on it and next thing I know, I'm schlepping it over the half-mile walk back to the car. Just got the head, as I already have a PRS 2x12 with V30s, and I gig it through a 4x12 anyway.
After a week or so (including a gig with it later in the day that I picked it up) it's definitely different. Lots of things I could say about it, but it boils down to the following for me. I absolutely like it better than the MDT for gigging. It does go more clean, and it can be used by itself without something else for an entire gig. Tones are fantastic, and I'm still learning to muck with the three different switch settings. Also, I like dialing it in like a 4 hole Marshall. But, for pure tonal bliss at home, the MDT does it better for me.
Anyway, here's a very quick clip where I've tried to set them to what seemed like similar tones at the time (but without the benefit of being able to listen to them back to back like you can do in an edited clip or with an amp switcher.)
