    I disagree, and so does everything I have ever read or experienced.

    I'd believe it goes against everything you've read on a social forum like TDPRI. In the world of noise, vibration and harshness, or shock, vibration and acoustics, not so much.

    I am not talking about social media. I am talking about what I have read in more formal media...engineering papers and such.

    Twins are surf amps, never sounding good for rock, and blues.

    Thanks for the chuckles......and Telecasters are to be used only for country, right????
    There have been innumerable Fender Twin Reverbs used on stages and in studios for rock and blues. For one example, Mike Bloomfield used Twin Reverbs...and wait for it.....a Telecaster on stage to play blues/rock. The Byrds. The list would be too long to type out....
    here is a fairly good example of Twin Reverbs being used for what would have to be classified as rock....

    I’m late to the party here. I did not read 5 pages of posts. Did the OP settle on a somewhat viable solution?

    Sure Twins are big and heavy. But they sound awesome and are cheap! The owner may be in a limited budget. A SF Twin Reverb sure works well when money is tight. Young and thrashing loud with your band buddies? A Twin will keep up. Dirt, well no, not from a a Twin. However in my experience an OCD dirt pedal is just about awesome for my tastes. Affordable too. Hell a Boss Metal Zone might be more up your alley. Good cheap fun can be had with the Twin as your tonal foundation.
