MA5's deliver HUGE round guitars with great presence where Martin's tend to sing. The 28k button puts a nice brightness on the top. The Biz can generate a variety of acoustic sounds. In dual mode it yields a darker but open sound (not as big on the bottom as the MA5 but very pleasant). With the dual path disengaged it creates a more focused sound that sits well in denser mixes. In both cases, having output attenuators are helpful when trying to get the optimal sound. (my experience so far has been with a mid 70's Gibson Hummingbird and a late model J200)
