    I just need more power and mids. in my band I was having to run it at 9 for most shows and that's not my preferred sound from a DR. I'm better off with the headroom of a 40-50w MV amp which allows me to dial in better for the room. And an amp with a Mid knob.

    The DR sound is so seductive for me but doesn't really work for me. The TMDR is still right up there with the best DRs I've used and tied for the best I owned.

    Currently:

    1990 Fender ‘63-reissue Vibroverb
    1972-ish Gibson G-20
    19?? Pignose Legendary 7-100
    ???? Fender Rumble 150 bass amp (2nd generation)

    I wouldn’t mind something small and Fender and tweed with tremolo.

    I sold one (60’s Silvertone 1483 bass head) last year.

    In order of how long I have owned them:

    ‘82 Fender Princeton Reverb II

    ‘65 Harmony H303C

    Peavey Delta Blues 210

    Orange Micro Terror head

    I play almost exclusively at home (apartment), so the Peavey and the Fender are really not useful to me. Problem is, I’m very attached to the Fender, and nobody wants the Peavey, at least not at a price I would accept. That’s OK, I love the sound of it. I just got the Harmony up and running again, so I’m going to be playing that for a while. The Orange is by far the most practical for me.

    Only two:

    - Roland JC-55: more power than I've ever been able to use, clean headroom for days, terrible solid-state distortion
    - Deluxe Micro: handmade one watt single-ended tweed-alike head, run into a handmade 1x12 with a Weber Classic Alnico

    Technically, I own 4, practically, I use 3 …….Some cheap Epiphone SS "starter package" amp, maybe 10 or 15 watts....don't use, it's shat. Have a Fender Rumble 25(?), I use it for occasional bass fun and plays well with my guitars and multi fx unit. Epi Valve Jr, simple one trick pony, but does what I need it to when I need one trick. And My Tweaker, which I use the most, super versatile, if ya don't mind fiddlin' with switches and knobs, and it pairs REALLY well with my BMG Special, a super versatile guitar that goes way beyond trying to nail Brian May tones....I am a BM fan, but don't try to emulate him, bought this because it's so versatile for a LOT of stuff....trust me

    My wife and I have 6 amps between us:
    1984 Fender Concert II
    1980's Peavey Special 130
    1980's Peavey Reno 400 acoustic amp
    1980's Peavey Backstage 50
    1990's Crate CA 125 acoustic amp
    2019 Mesa Boogie Fillmore 25

    The old Peavey Reno 400 acoustic amp is big and heavy but nothing sounds like it. I've tried I guess 8-10 different acoustic amps and I've to find one that will hang with it as far as tone I want plus the punch it has. 210 watts with a 15" speaker and the piezo tweeter horn, it's old and out dated but I love the sound.
