well i just got a nice little bonus check

and im really really interested in Dr Z amps....particularly the Route 66 head. Its dr z's twist on a jtm45.

The problem is that Ill feel a little guilty...im a pretty average blues player...and its pretty expensive.

I guess im just wanting some reassurance that im doing the right thing...

what is your FULL budget for a tube amp??

Is it for gigs/jamming or just for practice???

oh, by the way...if you like the blooz and you've got the dough, a two-rock would make you happy forever.


you wouldn't even need kids.

And if you have kids already, then you can sell them! More time to spend with the two-rock

this.


and, i would go for it. speaking logically, you cant become a "worse" guitar player, and having a new (and nice) amp will make you want to play more to get the most out of the amp.

It's fine, I blew my money on a Metropoulos JTM45 and I'm a pretty average blues player too. It's your money, you can do whatever you want with it. The JTM45 is a sick amp though.

Get it! It's something you can be proud of. I got a nic(er) amp when I wasn't that great and I strived to get an awesome sound out of it.

Then when you get really good then your next step will be an even better amp!

Maybe you should just get a Real JTM45? or maybe a Bluesbreaker


the BB will be beter for the cream hendrix stuff than a 45 I think

Get a JTM45. I am one picky bastard and when I heard that amp for the first time, I told myself that that was the one.

If you want advice on JTM45 clones, PM me ( or Al, seeing as he has one).

There are many factors that come into play when you want a specific sound with those amps.

Metropolous makes damn good amps, thats for sure.
