Re: Mystic Blue, Electroplex, K&M, Dumble Amps
Gregg,  
 
If you're interested in the Mystic Blues, you can go to the following link:  
 
http://www03.u-page.so-net.ne.jp/wa2/wmorgan/  
 
and read about the Dumble/Mystic shootout.  
 
The guy who owns the Mystic Blues also happens to own an Electroplex Rocket 35. After I tried one at the 1998 NAMM and reported on it (I did write a review of a Dumble and talked about the Rocket there):

Bill -- the Mystic owner -- ordered one, and he liked it a lot. He agrees that at lower volumes, the Rocket 30 (or is it 35?) nails the Carlton/Dumble/Strat w/EMGs sound.  
 
To me, that is really the most harmonically rich amp I have ever played... Turn it up loud and you start losing headroom real quick, a shame for some (myself included).
