Finally got a chance to tryout the Bonamassa & the Cantrell.
While I think the Bonamassa is nice, it's just not what I'm looking for.
The Cantrell on the other hand, is completely what I'm looking for, very expressive throughout the entire range. Not harsh in the upper extremities at all.
The trim pot on the side is a nice feature, but honestly, its perceived impact is subjective.
Definitely on my G.A.S. list now.
