    Just got this a couple of hours ago. Love it so far! Biggest surprise...no hum or hiss at all. After reading all the posts about these things making a lot of noise I was a little worried that it might be a problem. Not at all! It is a tiny bit harsh sounding right now but I'm sure the speaker needs to be broken in. With the Twimble plugged in, geez it sounds good!

    I love the ‘68 Custom series of amps and I think that you have my favorite model.
    I tried one of these with a factory NEO Creamback speaker and that speaker made the amp even better sounding.
    Congrats and enjoy!

    Nice amp. Congratulations.

    I’ve a Celestion British Creamback in my DRRI and I love it. Tames the highs and enriched the mids.

    Congrats! If I were gigging more, that is surely one that would be on top of my list.

    About it being quiet, do someone know if Fender changed something or simply if some folks just over reacted on the hissing issue?
