For many years I screwed around with vintage amps. I spent lots of dough on techs and tubes chasing tone. At points I achieved a decent tone. Recently I purchased a new DRRI. The sound was incredible. What I was searching for. I couldn't recommend this amp enough. I would buy a reissue twin or super over a vintage one in a heartbeat. There are great vintage models out there to be sure. The consistency of the reissues is well documented and are legitimate considerations.
