    That's what makes our hobby (obsession?) interesting. A day of lieder would be hell for me -as, I imagine, for Tom a day of-say- Pat Metheny - would be, let alone Los Lobos and John Hiatt!
    Though maybe he could stand some Fado?
    Perhaps I'd have to stick to guitar flamenco (I say 'guitar' as I'm not sure Cante Hondo (song) would suit someone whose ears are tuned to Plainsong!)
    And I'm wincing at Opera on 'Private Passions' on radio as I type!

    Actually I'm quite a Pat Metheney fan but I haven't heard of any of the others.

    Hell for me is actually anything in the 'girl with guitar' department ....

    BTW on reflection perhaps have posted this here http://theartofsound.net/forum/showt...a-brief-review

    Now that's a mean thing to say, as your amp is one of only two or three...

    Don't know if Ant could make a new 'Copper' amp, or maybe his current TD amps are better again.....

    Lol... Oh he would, if someone wanted one and was willing to pay around £5k for it. His Soul monoblocks are even better (certainly in some areas), but they're about £15k.

    I've never said that it's the best amp in the world, dude. I like it, and most others who've heard it also seem to. I've already stated that Tom's Radford could give it a run for its money, and I'm sure that'll prove to be the case when we have our sesh
