I'm kind of a tube snob. By that I mean I'm mainly a basement player nowadays, and tube amps inspire me to keep practicing and getting better. I freely admit that part of that is the mystique and nostalgia of tube circuitry. There. I said it. If I were a regular gigging player and/or making money playing, I would buy the new Tonemaster Twin in a heartbeat, based on the design and reviews alone. No question. The tonemasters are not for basement clowns like me. It's for real pros who have neither the time nor patience to deal with old amps for regular performance. Good on Fender. I hope the Tonemasters take off and change things up. Seriously.
