    Anyone heard both of these amps so as to know the
    sonic differences? I've been studying the schematics and
    there are some distinct changes in the input section and
    the power section of the Roughneck compared to the
    Tweed even though it was based on the same circuit.
    Wondering what those changes add up to as far tone--?

    I realize the Roughneck transformers are beefier thus
    allowing the ability to use other power tubes than the
    6V6--6L6, KT88, EL34. But I'm trying to compare apples
    to apples as close as I can so am only thinking about the
    6V6-5Y3 combo. Any opinions?
