"I currently use a Madison Divinity head and Madison Minstil cabinet which fulfill my needs entirely. The head features three separate channels with separate EQs for clean, distortion and more distortion as well as having a light distortion option on the clean channel, providing me with all the head room and versatility I would ever need. I see the Divinity as a best of both worlds situation. It's equipped with EL34 power tubes for a British sounding looseness and crunchiness with fast compression, which I generally prefer, along with a low midrange response and the ability to scoop easily for that big, consuming wall-of-sound, modern distortion. It's as if this amp was made specifically for me."
