Intrigued by the Paul.
Have owned an Einstein 50W and wonder how similar/different the two are.
Looking for a lead amp to give me Satriani/Eric Johnson legato tones and have the ability to get John Sykes tones too.
The Einstein was awesome but I always felt that Ch 2 was a tad dark and compressed but still sounded awesome.
Is the Paul a lot brighter with high gain and does it have the gain and saturation of Ch2 that the Einstein had?
Also is the Paul a Greenback type of amp?
Can the Paul run EL34's?
Lastly does the Paul have the incredibly great master that the Einstein had. That amp sounded awesome at super low levels.
I play loudly but not all the time and want it to sound good down low too.

I would say yes but what is a Greenback type of amp ?

I like the Celestion Greenback for Clean and Crunch. Maybe to much sizzle for lead.

If you have an old Marshall cabinet the Paul would fit very well.

By greenback type amp I mean an amp that sounds best with Greenbacks...similar to Marshall.
Wondering about the other aspects of the Paul as well.
How similar is it to the Einstein?
Also looking for a 1x12 cab it would sit on but not finding anything.

Einstein and Paul are Diezel amps concerning the sound.
Of course they are different.

Was looking for a more detailed analysis of how they sound since they seem to be the most similar of Diezel amps.
I figured they were different but just wanted some more info.
