Hey @teletimetx – just an update on my experience. When you A/B for the sake of doing that, you don't ask the right questions and you don't pay attention to the important stuff. Today I noticed while playing the strat in the Brown Deluxe that the in-between positions were dull and lifeless. All the rest played wonderful, but the quack wasn't there. I could have corrected that by cranking the tone, perhaps, but at the cost of making the other sounds brittle. I decided to try the Tremolux and it was glorious. Funk rhythm galore. Ditto for SRV "Cold Shot" tones, and for John Mayer-ish tones. So I correct: even at bedroom levels, for certain uses they are not interchangeable at all. The Brown Deluxe excels at meaty blues and rock sounds (and is spectacular with a tele also for country tones). Conversely, the Tremolux can be sweet and jazzy – especially with a warmer P-90 guitar like the Casino – it can be a spanky funk machine, and it has some blues tones in it that the Deluxe does not have. I feel truly privileged to have both (and the Zephyr for my swing needs). They complement each other wonderfully, and I'm sure I'll be even more convinced of this when rehearsals and gigs will resume.
