    Good point. No, I don't think you are something wrong with your tube amps, it is a simple psychological fact, for me. I know that SS amps will also break, nothing lasts forever, I know that what I am saying does not make much sense, but I feel better if I only have to push one button before...

    Help me choose between amp and guitar

    UPDATE Today was the last day of the Black Friday discounts in my favourite online shop, so I pulled the trigger before it was too late and got the Tone Master Deluxe Reverb. Very happy about this purchase, I have been thinking about it for months and months, finally I did it! I will take my...

    You are right, but I am a lazy guy and really don't want to deal with valves/tubes. Switch on and play, that's what I like at the moment.

    Let me say a big THANK YOU for this post. I would have never noticed this difference I think, as I am not an SG player or expert. Very helpful, I'll know what to check out before buying. Thanka a lot.

    Help me choose between amp and guitar

    When I tried the Tone Master, I tested it with a Telecaster Vintera 50 and a Japanese Fender Telecaster 50, the closest they had to my AV52, and I loved the tone I got! I am pretty sure it will be a great combo with my guitars, and you're right: in the future I will be able to better understand...

    Thank you very much for this detailed information, I was not aware of this difference between the early and later style. Much appreciated.

    Thanks you sir, that's what I wanted to hear! On the other hand, I totaly approve (in a very sad way...) your avatar. Man, I love Wilko!

    Thanks for that. That's exactly my feeling: I have always been a good guitar/entry level amp guy (owned some very good amps in the past, but had to seel them), now I feel that my guitars 'deserve' something better.

    Sorry if I was not clear, I didn't mean that you were debating, it was just a disclaimer for what I was going to write. I have tried the Boss amp and enjoyed it, I know that there are good/better options out there, but I really am in love with the Deluxe Reverb which I consider THE amp for the...

    Fully agree. The most important factor to me is the enjoyment (is it a word?), so as long as a person enjoys his music, everything is fine. On a side note, I have always been intrigued by the Vibro Champ, maybe one day... ;)

    Help me choose between amp and guitar

    It is very interesting to mee that on the Strat talk forum, people pushed towards the Strat (to be fair, I asked to be convinced that I needed a Strat), here on TDPRI I see that most of people vote for the amp. Maybe it's just because I have posted different questions, but I find it...

    Help me choose between amp and guitar

    Thank yoi sir. You are probably right about everything you've written, but as I said in my previous post, I don't want to mess with tubes anymore, I am really into the plug-and-play attitude now and the Deluxe Reverb woupd let me play at home and eventually gig, if I ever come back on to a...
