When recording the Minuteman is hard to beat. Put it in a room by itself and put the controls to 10, sweet tone & breakup. Also, it has a different Reverb circuit in that you can turn the normal circuit to 0 and still have reverb coming from the amp, kinda a pre-fader feed type of thing.
I like the controls and channel switching abilities of the Super Goldtone. Great modern amp! The ability to turn both channels on at once is awesome. If you have the foot switch, it is like having a five channel amp.
